It took a little more than 4 months after the date of the “output” originally announced for the Custom Firmware Atmosphere is finally put in a line, in a first version 0.7.0. It is through the account Twitter of the reputable developer @SciresM that the information fell on Wednesday 17 October at 13: 05.
For recall or for information, Atmosphere is a hack to destination Nintendo Switch operator the fault RCM and allowing to run code not signed by Nintendo. In order for example to launch homebrew (programs made house by developers, enthusiasts), emulators (simulation of old consoles), or even copies of the game.
More exactly, it is a Custom Firmware, that is to say, a firmware… changed (thank you captain obvious), which has undergone changes of the share of third-party developers who do not work for Nintendo. This allows, therefore, to continue to take advantage of the features offered by the firmware official, in addition to additional options added by the developers (such as those mentioned just above).
In short, as much as to say thatAtmosphere was highly anticipated by the community underground. It is therefore no surprise that the news of SciresM has had the immediate effect of a bomb. In his tweet, the programmer has also revealed that the releases are expected to be much more frequent from now on.
Well everyone, it’s finally June 15th: Atmosphere 0.7.0 has been released: https://t.co/5b6vdGabUf …
Releases should be a *lot* more frequent from now on. Enjoy! 🙂
(Please note, at least one major bug has been fixed since the pre-release that went up ~12 hours ago!)

The page of GitHub of the project is accessible just at the bottom, and gives more details about the functionality offered by Atmospheres, each with its little name : “Rocket “, ” Exosphere “, ” Thermosphere “, “Stratosphere” and ” Troposphere “. And as always, don’t forget to click on the tab “Releases” in the center to download the product well packaged as it should and is ready to use (unless you prefer to compile it yourself).
Don’t worry, the tutorial happens as soon as possible Custom Protocol ! 😉 In any case, we can already tell you that it worked for us !
Good hack at all !
