  • The only updated 01000000000010XX titles are: "System applet"(qlaunch), 0100000000001008, 010000000000100A, ShopN, 010000000000100F, Whitelisted-applet, and WifiWebAuthApplet.

FIRM Packages

The only changes in titles 0100000000000819 and 010000000000081A was that "/nx/package2" in the FS were updated. 010000000000081B firm was also updated.

819:

Kernel was not changed.

Sysmodules:

  • All 3 codebin sections in the following sysmodules were updated: boot, FS, Loader, and NCM. Offset of the RW section for FS increased by 0x1000.
  • For ProcessMana and sm, only the RO section changed. The only change was the builid hash at the very end of the section, following the "GNU" string.
  • spl wasn't updated.
    • Loader: Only changes in .text was a rebuild with latest SDK, now has the same additional IPC cmd code as NS(see below).
    • boot: .text now has latest SDK changes + various other changes.

FS-module

There were two changes with IDeviceOperator commands:

  • Code eventually executed for cmd216 was updated. Instead of directly writing to the output struct which is then copied to final output later, a tmpbuf is used which is then copied to the output struct. The 0x10-byte output struct is cleared at the start, and the only u16s copied to output struct from tmpbuf when successful are: +0, +4, +8, +14, and +12.
  • New command 217 was added.
  • See also below SDK section.

Rest of the changes:

  • HFS0 error handling was updated.
  • The error returned in one case for a certain func was changed.
  • Code was moved into a separate func, which is now called by the func which was using that code. Similar-ish code in a different func was removed.
  • A certain func no longer writes an error to stack.
  • Various memwrite/memclear changes.
  • Various u16 counters are now incremented in some cases.
  • In a certain func an u32 field is now incremented at _this+16 in some cases.
  • Minor other change(s).

SDK

Every system-title with this system-version which uses FS now has IPC code for using the new IDeviceOperator cmd, including FS-module itself.

Application crashes

As documented here, a fatal-error is no longer thrown when applications crash. Instead, qlaunch displays an error message, without requiring a reboot. It appears 2.0.0 qlaunch already had the message string for this, which is: "The software was closed because an error occurred."

erpt

...

The following strings were added to the codebin: "GameCardInsertionCount", "GameCardRemovalCount", and "GameCardAsicInitializeCount".

nvservices-sysmodule

Only 1 func was changed: L_30f20, which is at L_30f20 in prev ver.

Strings containing paths were changed. For example, "D:/Home/teamcity/work/hr/3rdparty/hos-ddk-minimal/ddk/Programs/Chris/Include\nn/spl/spl_Api.h" is now "C:/dvs/git/dirty/git-master_hos/3rdparty/hos-ddk-minimal/ddk/Programs/Chris/Include\nn/spl/spl_Api.h".

Also, "D:/Home/teamcity/work/hr/hos/services/src/libs/nnmem/mem_StandardAllocator.cpp" is now "C:/dvs/git/dirty/git-master_hos/hos/services/src/libs/nnmem/mem_StandardAllocator.cpp", etc.

NS-sysmodule

The NS-sysmodule was updated. 4 new funcs were added and 29 funcs were updated.

The ASLR'd codebin base(rtld+0) for the below addrs is 0x6f0c00000. For "prev ver" it's 0x5381800000.

 L_6f0c26f84
 new func.
 called via vtable funcptr.
 return L_6f0c2814c(inx0+8, inx1, w2=0xd9) & 0xffffffff;
 
 L_6f0c2814c
 inx0=_this inx1=0x40-byte outbuf copied from cmdreply inw2=cmdid
 new func.
 Sends an ipc cmd, service unknown.
 only called by L_6f0c26f84.
 
 L_6f0c373f4
 updated, prev ver @ L_5381837284.
 For the func call executed from the first branch(L_6f0c377e8()), x1 and x2 are now set: x1 = *(0x6f0d9d000+0xfc0)+0x90, x2 = 0x6f0d44000+0xb36("ncm")
 
 L_6f0c377e8
 updated, prev ver @ L_5381837640.
 Basically, instead of hard-coded inputs for various stuff, code now loads those using the additional input params.
 
 L_6f0c378b4
 updated, prev ver @ L_538183771c.
 ipc related func.
 After the first func call, instead of "if(inx0==0 || ret^1)return;" this now just does "if(ret==0)return;" and "objptr = *(inx0+32);" afterwards.
 The code at the end was replaced with code for calling a vtable funcptr from the objptr.
 
 L_6f0c379fc
 updated, prev ver @ L_5381837874.
 Instead of writing 0 to sp8, this now writes *(inx0+32) there.
 
 L_6f0c37a94
 updated, prev ver @ L_5381837904.
 Same change as L_6f0c379fc.
