You guys have made my Switch a ton more useful, thanks for all the work you guys put in! ★\(^▽^ )♪
Android 10 and Deep Sleep are great to have! Haven't tested the build yet since I won't be free until tomorrow but I'm looking forward to it!

Edit: Forgot to edit it, just chiming in to say that I've been loving it! Thank you so much devs!

Hello! I'm trying to install it but I'm stuck on google voice assistant.
If I tap on "No thanks" it brings me a page back everytime.

I can't get my switch to boot into twrp. I used balina to put previous version in but would rather use twrp for familiarities. Is there a guide to installing twrp?

Just follow the guide in post
Hi there. I'm glad to see it is official now. Can I do a dirty flash via twrp? I have a SD card setup from an unofficial selfmade build from October. Thank you.
Dirty flash wont work, you need to wipe and repartition in hekate

I did. I unzipped hikati and rom. Just moved everything else. Sd card is class 1 64 gb formatted into fat 32 followed instructions within hikati. First time I tried it said flash successful but wouldn't boot into twrp. Now it just says flashable files not found. Imma start over from scratch see if I can get it. Must be something I missed. I'll see.

I'm simply amazed. Thank u so much for all the months of hard work @ANyOne involved!

I've got two questions:
1. If I go for the non-Android TV image, can I control the Switch in the dock with the Joy-Cons wirelessly?
2. If going for the Android TV image, would it support the Google Cast protocoll receiver-sided (meaning I could cast to it)?

Edit: Please let me add a third question:
3. Can Android access the FAT32 partition I'm using in Horizon?
Aka can I continue my SNES savegames in Android's RetroArch by pointing it's directory settings to the same folder on the FAT32 partition I'm using in Horizon's RetroArch for the savegames?

    runs great games run great emulators runs great but my bluethoot headphones cut in and out the audio for some reazon maybe a bug anyone having the same problem? apart from that android is running great
    Will be fixed in next OTA
    Running great except "Bluetooth" keeps crashing multiple times after starting up the system.
    But Bluetooth works afterwards.

    Is this a known issue?

    thx

    Does anyone has the same issue?
    Will be fixed in next OTA

    I was able to get some logs concerning my broken Wifi. Below is a logcat of me tapping on the wifi icon in the notification dropdown. There's some errors and I hope it helps getting to the bottom of the problem.

    EDIT:

    I also grabbed a dmesg which I have uploaded to my server since it's too large to attach here

    Grepping for "wifi"/"wlan" yields a whole lot of errors, for example:
    service "vendor.wifiloader" exited with status 255

    Naturally, wifi works just fine in Horizon, just in case you suspect faulty hardware
    Thanks, does it only crash after sleep?

    How Can I reboot to hekate ? Thanks
    Reboot and hold vol-
    For me the sleep mode is not working. Battery draining really fast. Anyone with the same problem?
    Should be fixed in OTA
    Today my Lp0 didn't work. I use CPU spy to observe this. This happened after a reboot.

    My switch stayed on with 100mhz all the time but screen was off.

    I turned wifi and bt on and off. This helped. Afterwards my switch went into deep sleep again and stayed there as long as the screen was off.

    Maybe this helps.
    Should be fixed in OTA

    Flash this in TWRP and reboot. It fixes ZL ZR button for the pro controller in bluetooth.

    I'm unable to connect to wifi.

    anyone get safetynet to pass?
    I flashed it and gapps and tested safety net and it failed. Wasn't sure if there was something I missed

    yes I did. To me a while to work out but you have to:

    1. Mans sure you have flashed magisk
    2. In the manager install busybox and magiskhidepropsconf
    3. Reboot
    4. Install termux from the App Store
    5. Open termux and type ‘su props’
    6. Option 1 then follow the instructions to change the fingerprint to nvidia shield tv pro 2019
    7. Reboot and it all works
