    Step 1. Download the nightly of ReiNX and the ReiNX toolkit
    . http://builds.reinx.guide/nightly/ReiNX-746fded.zip

    . http://builds.reinx.guide/toolkit/ReiNXToolkit-d1ccf3c.nro

    step 2. Place the ReiNX folder in the nightly on the root of your sd card (if you have a previous version of ReiNX delete the ReiNX folder already on your sd card before doing this) (if you already have reinx use the toolkit to update to the latest nightly)

    Step 3. Place the ReiNX toolkit in SD:/switch

    Step 4. In the ReiNX folder now on your sd card make a folder named titles and place the contents of http://reinx.guide/u/010000000000100D.zip

    Step 5. Boot your switch into RCM and use your payload injector of choice to inject the ReiNX,bin file from the nightly

    Step 6. use the album to launch the hbmenu and launch the toolkit

    Step 7. in the toolkit go to the kip manager and make sure that fs_mitm.kip and pm.kip have a checkmark next to them and not an x

    step 8. exit the toolkit and then press the home button

    step 9. restart your switch

    Using Mods on Games
    (DO NOT DO UNLESS YOU DID THE TUTORIAL ABOVE)

    Step 1. In ReiNX/titles make a folder named the title id of the game your wanting to mod (you can find them here http://switchbrew.org/wiki/Title_list/Games)

    Step 2. Download your mod from gamebanana or wherever you get your mods from and place them in the title id to the game your modding


    Using Qlaunch mods

    Step 1. in ReiNX/titles make a folder named 0100000000001000 inside this folder make a file named fsmitm.flag (a handful of Qlaunch mods will come with this but its easier to make it yourself) just make a text file then save it with all files being selected and name it fsmitm.flag

    step 2. in the folder you made in step 1 make a folder named lyt

    step 3. most if not all Qlaunch mods will come with a common.szs file which you put in the lyt folder you made in step 2

    Make sure have "hide known file extensions" unchecked in folder settings on windows or you won't be able to make a file with a extension.

    s_mitm.kip and pm.kip do not show up in the toolkit options.

    are you under the kips manager and looking to the right? cause they should be there with an X next to them

    i figured out the issue, my memory card wasnt properly showing the reinx folder and none of the kips were listed. i fixed that but im still having an issue. There's a mod for more NES games on the classic NES game but anytime i boot up the game, with the correct folder located in reinx/titles, it just gives me the base game and not the modified version. Same applies if i try running devmenu over pokemon quest.

    Basically, with all folders showing up, everything in its right place, i cant get the "layeredfs" portion of reinx to work.

    make 100% sure you have ReiNX/titles/0100d870045b6000/romfs/titles/ (inside here is a bunch of roms and a file i cant think of the name atm to) also make sure you fully followed the guide i posted, all of those things are very crucial

    Do you have the fs_mitm.kip? That file is vital for LayeredFS and mods

    LayeredFS seems to cause issues with the newest ReiNX on applications like Checkpoint and Edizon. Can anyone verify that this isn't just me? Firmware 5.1

    LayeredFS has caused issues with ReiNX and apps since it was first introduced with it XD. Can you hold R when you open the apps to load them without LFS running?

    Didn't realize that was a thing, cool. I ended up fixing it by wiping the ReiNX folder entirely and just downloading a fresh copy. Must have gotten my wires crossed somehow and had a bad file. It doesn't work entirely reliably, but I'd say 9/10 times it works fine now.

    I'm using ReiNX 1.7 but I'm getting a "Code Error -1" whenever I try to enable "pm.kip." What seems to be causing this?

    Gambia, The
    Hey Folks, I was wondering if somebody could tell me the exact steps they took to launch their Mods on ReiNX

    Here is mine btw:
    1.Start TegraRCMGui
    2.Boot with hekate_ctcaer_4.2.ipl
    3.Select from
    Code:
    [config]
    autoboot=0
    bootwait=5
    customlogo=1
    verification=2
    
    {tumGER/SDFilesSwitch v9.1}
    { }
    {Discord: http://discord.gg/qbRAuy7}
    { }
    
    {-- Custom Firmwares --}
    [CFW]
    kip1=modules/newfirm/*
    kip1patch=nosigchk
    { }
    
    {------ LayeredFS -----}
    [Newest LayeredFS]
    kip1=modules/newfirm/*
    kip1=modules/fs_mitm.kip
    atmosphere=1
    kip1patch=nosigchk
    { }
    
    {---- Miscellaneous ---}
    [Stock]
    { }
    The CFW option
    4.After Start choose the Game that was modded (in my Example the Linkle Mod for Zelda BOTW)
    5.Wait till the Game loads, only to be greeted with the Normal Game...


    Maybe I do something wrong like not booting the Console with the ReiNX.ipl?
    I already enabled the fs-mitm.kip in the ReiNX Kip Manager, but maybe that wasn't enough either?
    Also triple checked the Folder layout (ReiNX/titles/ *number of title* /romfs/ * )
    So any Idea how to finally get the Mods running would be appreciated!

    LayeredFS is poorly implemented on ReiNX at the moment. The devs themselves openly admit it. However, a nightly build of ReiNX should already have a quickfix for it.

    I followed the tutorial exactly and am using those files too, but it doesn't seem to be working. Is my file tree wrong? Also, those layeredFS kips don't show up in the Toolkit. I moved the kips from sysmodules.dis to sysmodules since I thought that was the problem, but it's still nonfunctional and won't show up, either. I don't think it's just my mod since someone else's 5.1.0 qlaunch mod didn't work either.
