AIO Switch Updater - Update CFW, FW, cheats and more directly from the Switch (3)

A Nintendo Switch homebrew app download and update CFWs, sigpatches, FWs and cheat codes. Support Atmosphere, ReiNX and SXOS. Basically I packed my previous homebrew apps into one, polished it and added a GUI.

Download
releases: https://github.com/HamletDuFromage/AIO-switch-updater/releases/
source: https://github.com/HamletDuFromage/AIO-switch-updater

Disclaimer
I do not own, host nor distribute any of the files that can be downloaded with this homebrew tool. At the owner's request, I will immediately remove the ability to download the problematic files.

How will this work for those having issues opening up Tinfoil by Blawar? I can sense the support channel being under fire again because tinfoil isnt opening up

What does tinfoil have to do with anything here?

Blawar's tinfoil just detects /bootloader/patches.ini

You need to put the json file in /config/aio-switch-updater/ if you want custom Joy-Con colors. 100% optional though, that's not really the main focus of the app. I should probably go more into details for everything but it's too late right now :^)

Request for later, a "exosphere.ini" generator. Since I don't think a lot of people know about some of the features and protections from it.

Nintendo firmware? If so, just use the firmware download feature in the software I guess. It's the best place I know of to get the firmwares. It fetches them from Darth.

ahh
didnt know it existed
here is a small dilemma i forsee:
i think when updating atmos it requires you to delete all existing atmos files including some inside the switch folder
im wondering if this was taken into account when making the app

99% of the time it's just to overwrite the files

@Homlet Since I'm a paranoid bastard. Do you have a md5 checker for the FW? I can't find anyone in the extraction code. Since Darth post the MD5, maybe it would be good to use it just incase?

You can check in https://github.com/HamletDuFromage/AIO-switch-updater/blob/master/include/constants.hpp, it's getting links from https://hamletdufromage.github.io/switch-fw/firmwares.html which are links scrapped directly from Darth. Then daybreak finds that it is valid firmware. Let me know if you think there should be something more (but I sure hope not lmfao). Btw tomorrow I'll need to push an update deleting the /firmware/ directory before extracting a new firmware, or at least I think it's necessary

Believe me when i say this: i cant express how many times i see people complain atmos is not working and its due to existing files not being completely deleted
scirez can changes file structures for atmos any time. and he has in the past.
anyways, i just want to bring this to OPs attention as a request for a check of this.

I remember him doing this once, and even then there was several versions to transition. I think problems mostly come from sysmodules. I guess I could add a way to cleanly reinstall though

Funnily enough I considered this. Shouldn't be too hard to do either. I'll try to do it tomorrow or the day after tomorrow
