  • General system stability improvements to enhance the user's experience.


FIRM

All files under RomFS were updated.

Package1ldr

package1ldr was updated. The TSEC secureboot firmware was not updated.

NX_BOOTLOADER

NX bootloader was updated.

Secure Monitor

The Secure Monitor was updated.

  • DMA controller configuration now disables AHB-DMA from arbitration.
  • The SMC handler now checks a "is SMC allowed" bitmask against configuration set by NX bootloader(This just comes from bits 1-4 of the "attribute" field of the bootloader in BCT).
    • Nintendo can now blacklist certain SMCs from certain boot conditions, but since the bitmask is zero for retail firmware (everything is allowed) this isn't particularly meaningful.
  • smcGetConfig's "get_memory_configuration_by_bootconfig" implementation changed. It now calls a new function "get_dram_configuration", which returns a configuration value depending on the DRAM ID.
  • Code configuring what peripherals to set secure-world only no longer assumes that the code is a retail unit.
    • This removes what were presumed to be compile-time ifdefs for retail vs dev added in 7.0.0.
  • Code responsible for configuring HiZ charger mode has changed a little.
    • smcCpuSuspend no longer checks hardware type when deciding whether to go down HiZ mode codepaths.
    • wakeup code on warmboot now checks whether HiZ mode is enabled, instead of unconditionally disabling it.
  • TSEC no longer has access to the kernel carveout, and TSECB now has access to the kernel carveout.
    • The Read/Write access levels were changed from 1 to 9, to facilitate this.

Warmboot

  • The firmware revision magic was not changed.

System Titles

  • 1 new title was added: FunctionBlackList.
  • All titles were updated, except for the following: dictionaries, UrlBlackList, PlatformConfigHoag, miiEdit, and flog.

FunctionBlackList

This contains /blacklist.dat which contains 8-bytes of zeros.
