Step 0 : what you need
- A fusée gelée vulnerable Switch
- A SD card of at least 2Gb, formatted in FAT32
Step 1 : preparing the SD card
- Make sure that your SD card is FAT32 formatted, exFAT will not work
- Download the latest stable archive from here (use your brain to grab the latest)
- Extract the content of the directory in the archive and copy the
bootloaderfolders to the root of your SD card
- Windows users can use 7-Zip
Step 2 : booting Lakka
To boot Lakka, you need a working installation of hekate 4.0 (or later) on the Switch. We won’t cover this topic here, as there are multiple guides already existing.
Here are some softwares you can use :
- Windows : TegraRcmSmash, fusee-launcher
- Linux, Mac OS : fusee-launcher
- Android : NXLoader, Rekado (don’t use the Lakka launcher)
- iOS : NXBoot
Once hekate is running on your Switch, you can boot Lakka by going to
Launch > More configs > Lakka.
If going through the menu each time annoys you, you can ask hekate to autoboot Lakka by going to to
Launch options > Auto boot > More configs > Lakka.
Now what ?
