Item description:

The original idea for this was from @shamdul on the ReSwitched Discord. I helped him out on the Discord getting it working and then cleaned up the code a bit and added 4.x support. I've been using it for the past week to get into homebrew launcher on my Switch with no issues. All it does is load up Horizon with homebrew enabled with all the other functions of Hekate being striped out. It is recommended to only use this for development, anyone else should wait for Atmosphere.

Starting it normally will start Horizon with homebrew enabled.
Starting the payload while holding Vol+ will power off the device.

Starting the payload while holding Vol- will start Horizon without homebrew enabled.

Change log:
Version 2.0.7
- Pulled the latest upstream from Naehrwert.
- Updated SD Files.

Version 2.0.6
- Pulled the latest upstream from Naehrwert. (Sleep bug fix.)
- Fixed to now support 5.1.0.

Version 2.0.5
- Updated Homebrew Menu. (You can now swipe up to go back a folder, and swipe down to go into netloader.)
- Pulled down the latest upstream from Naehrwert.

Version 2.0.4
- Added back the ini file from Hekate into SwitchBlade allowing for custom kip1 blobs to be loaded for stock or hen.
- Made sure the latest hbloader and hbmenu are in
- Pulled down the latest upstream again.
- Anyone upgrading should download the new

Version 2.0.3
- Will now load all kip1 blobs from the modules folder when starting up with homebrew enabled.
- Anyone upgrading should pull the new

Version 2.0.2
- Pulled the latest upstream from @nwert. SwitchBlade should now have support for all versions. (1.x, 2.x, 3.x, 4.x, and 5.x)
- Updated hbmenu to have support for touch input.

Version 2.0.1
- Fixed bug with garbage data left in memory where the frame buffer is initialized was being displayed on screen.

Version 2.0.0
- Rebased SwitchBlade off of Nwert's repo with all of his latest changes. (With this comes support for Samsung SD Cards, though from my experience they make Horizon boot slower.)
- Rebuilt HDLoader to make sure the latest version is in
- Added the ability to hold Vol+ on sending the payload to power off the Switch.
- When booting stock it will no longer decrypt, rebuild and encrypt pkg2 as we aren't making any changes to it.
- Fixed issue with hidden files from MacOS would be selected as they were in the splashes folder. Now any file starting with "." or hidden will be skipped over for selecting a random splash screen.
- Added more verbose console output when there is no splash screen.

Version 1.0.6
- Holding Vol- while sending the payload will load the stock-ish firmware. (Useful for AutoRCM) It will still patch pkg1 to skip hash checks, but it will not merge in kip1 blobs to enable homebrew. This also still has the sleep bug and could still be detected by Nintendo. The only thing this does is give you access to your photo album.

Version 1.0.5
- Will now console out information when there is no "splash.bin" in the root of the SD Card and no files in the "splashes" folder in the root of the SD Card.
- Console messages will now display properly top and bottom instead of being rotated to the side.
- Fixed a possible bug preventing splash screens from appearing.

Version 1.0.4
- Will now skip over directories if you have any directories in the "splashes" folder for some reason?
- If you don't have a "splash.bin" file in the root and you have the "splashes" folder with nothing in there the payload would crash trying to access a null pointer.

Version 1.0.3
- Added the ability to have random splash screens.

Version 1.0.2
- Added the splash screen.

Version 1.0.1
- Code clean-up.
- Added 4.x support.

Version 1.0
- @shamdul's initial release.
