SystemInitializer

From Nintendo Switch Brew
Jump to: navigation, search

This is the 1000000000000001 title used at factory. Process-name is "SystemInitializ", internally in strings it's referred to as "SystemInitializer". The usage strings (see below) refer to it as "SystemUpdater", which might be an old name since that's the only reference to it.

Initial system installer: used to write/verify console specific calibration data such as asymmetric keys and write/verify NAND partitions from an initial installation image. Hence, this initializes the entire NAND. This includes an option for erasing NAND.

Uses input arguments from <argc/argv>. Returns without doing anything if the required arguments are not passed. Uses logging code for all text output which basically uses svcOutputDebugString eventually.

This is a "TargetTool": multiple path strings contain "TargetTools"(.nss string / source path strings).

This is basically a cmd-line tool.

Output from all svcOutputDebugString calls combined, with no arguments passed:

 [ERROR] Argument(-i | --input) is not found.
 
 SystemUpdater: Update the system by the system initial image.
