Hi All,

experienced issues when upgrading to 13.0 and hopefully its a simple fix. I will try and list what I did etc and I'm sure I'll miss bits of info but hopefully you can help:


0 - followed this YouTube video -
with this guide - https://nh-server.github.io/switch-guide/extras/updating/
1 - updated atmosphere to 1.1.1, hekate to 5.6.3 with nyx 1.08 and used the new fusee.bin
2 - put them all into the relevant folders and replaced files when asked
3 - edited the hekate.ipl to remove the syscfw option but used the text in the guide to update my old one
4 - updated the stock firmware to 13.0 via Nintendo
5 - boot into emummc

Booted up back into hekate and i get a black screen after i launch emummc and it stays there. It used to work before the upgrade (think it was 10.X or 11). Things to note or that I have tried after:

1 - I do get an error of sd card in 1 bit mode, but that hasn't stopped it working before this
2 - I have deleted the atmosphere folder and replaced with the one that came in the github release
3 - have put the latest sig patches in from here
4 - didn't update the atmosphere firmware via choidujour like i have done before
5 - booting to fusee.bin (via tegra or through payloads) results in "fatal error in fusee - could not mount SD card"

I managed to get the Nintendo logo appear but then goes to black screen after again - left for an hour and still no change.

apologies as some of this will be covered but I have looked at so many posts and just cant see a solution from what I've tried. Anything i have missed i apologise for and hopefully I could resolve it without losing all the data again.

And how did you solve it ?
Other could maybe find your solution usefull
Like this - honestly I will stress it just worked after, so id say it was the folder stuff. other thing i did was to take the panel off and wedge the sd card reader in place which means it was a bad connection between the socket and board connector :cry: but it runs at full speed now too.

See below for the folder side of it:

PLEASE MAKE A COMPLETE BACKUP OF THE SD FIRST JUST IN CASE :D

  • renamed the atmosphere, boot loader & switch folders on the root of the SD card by adding "old_" in front of the name ( so old_atmosphere, etc)

  • Added the atmosphere, hekate & signature patches to the SD card from the downloaded files you got from Github i assume

  • Put fusee.bin in to the payloads folder inside the boot loader folder

  • Make sure the hekate_ipl.ini file is inside the bootloader folder

  • Booted the switch with TegraRCM using the hekate 5.6.3 bin file and went from there
After that I added some of the stuff back I needed like the .nro files for the apps I use and the payloads etc. I am no expert though so I don't know what other things may need to be set up again - for example if you used incognito or 90nds etc. For me I think it was the fact I merged the folders initially and it caused a problem

Thanks for the reminder to post this btw :yayswitch:

The real issue was following a video. Never follow video guides if you want to avoid having any issues.
