    Help. I have 6.1 sysNAND and 6.1 emNAND. Never use sysNAND.

    the Switch boots up into RCM mode. Then I click emunand or custom firmware. Then the Nintendo screen flashes. Then Black screen. Then Nintendo Switch screen. IT then freezes on this screen and never moves on. Did I brick my switch????

    I turn off my switch my holding the power for 15 seconds. Charge the SX pro. Then try again and always get the same results.

    Auto RCM was on. I turned it off just in case.

    I dont think Booting into Original firmware even works anymore EITHER!!!! I never used original firmware

    EDIT: I used Hekate to restore my eMMC BOOT0/1 and eMMC RAW GPP (Exfat only) from my original backup. It still doesnt work. RCM is uninstalled. Booting the system with no SD card, No SXPro dongle, and No Jig results in No boot. botting into CFW from SXpro still has same Nintendo Switch logo hang. HELP

    boot to vanilla and see if you can.

    format SD card again

    download Kosmo and atmo to see if Atmosphere cfw works

    see if that solves your problem

    if it does then maybe you did something that messed up on sxos

    Does it matter ?
    As you have a nand backup (even after brick) i believe you can extract PRODINFO and rebuild a fresh nand from there. But this is kinda long (aka lot of steps)

    I never did a Nand backup after the brick (which Im still not sure if it is). I only have 1 and its my original. I do have my CFW Emunand which I guess is maybe considered a backup.

    Oh okay. This is even more weird if you restored a working backup

    well based off what I said I did "I used Hekate to restore my eMMC BOOT0/1 and eMMC RAW GPP (Exfat only) from my original backup." Is that all I needed to do?

    I can still boot payloads. Is there a payload I can boot to do more things or see my system menu version. It can still read my exFAT I think which is weird since I should be restoring back to 4.1 I though. Im not sure


    EDIT: Also if I dont have autoRCM installed why wont my switch even boot up when I have no SD card, No dongle and NOTHING plugged it. It wont even show Nintendo sign or switch sign.. It only will show a screen when I enter RCM mode.

    Can you boot into recovery mode? If you can just do the
    Restore factory settings.

    Is that the same thing as safe mode? The volume up and down thing?

    If so, it doesnt work without the jig and dongle for some reason. But when I try to do that after I use RCM to boot into system firmware it gets past the switch logo (Which Ive never done) and then gets to a black screen and hangs there

    Yes. If you can't.

    try this:

    1.boot into RCM mode.
    2.hold the Volume Up + Volume down at the same time.
    3.Inject the Hekate .
    After that it should boot in to "Recovery mode" than do the "Restore factory settings".

    I assume because you've burnt more fuses than the restored nand is happy with.

    You could find out how many fuses are burnt using bricmii, look it up on https://switchbrew.org/wiki/Fuses#Anti-downgrade and pick a firmware that has the same number and follow https://gbatemp.net/threads/how-to-...nofficially-without-burning-any-fuses.507461/ to install the correct firmware (you'll have to go the long way round and run ChoiDujour as you can't run ChoiDujourNX).

    That might help.

    possibly. It says I have 7 burnt fuses. The website says thats 6.10

    I thought that was what my backup was to, but maybe it was backing up to 4.1. So what do I need to do now? Upgrade my sysFW to 6.1?

    It is not about access Hekate. Inject the "hekate_fspatches_v3.bin" just for boot up your switch. You can inject any bin files to boot it up not only hekate.

    I dont know how to do that. I just use SXOS Pro. Then I inject the .bin

    Someone thinks it might be a fuse issue I have 7 burnt. But I think I restored back to 4.1

    CAn you help me get back to 6.1 on sysFW

    You don't boot choidujournx, you have to use the old choidujour method which is on the thread I linked. You need to grab your keys and use them to inject the firmware into the nand backup (make sure you keep a copy) and then restore that to the switch.

    You can't, its impossible. You don't need to use it. Use Choidujour instead, it runs on your PC.

    On this thread.

    https://gbatemp.net/threads/how-to-...nofficially-without-burning-any-fuses.507461/

    When you get to:

    "FOR AN EASIER INSTALLATION EXPERIENCE, THE REST OF THE STEPS MAY BE REPLACED JUST BY USING ChoiDujourNX AS A HOMEBREW ON THE CONSOLE ITSELF.
    Check out https://gbatemp.net/threads/choiduj...ller-homebrew-for-the-nintendo-switch.513416/ for more info."

    You can't have an easier experience, you have to continue with the guide.

    It is only for step 3 (Doesn't matter you using the SXOS or not. Go to download the hekate unzip it.
    Use the TegraRcmGUI to inject the hekate_fspatches_v3.bin.)

    Link for TegraRcmGUI :https://github.com/eliboa/TegraRcmGUI/releases

    Link for hekate: https://github.com/CTCaer/hekate

    follow this :
    1.boot into RCM mode.
    2.hold the Volume Up + Volume down at the same time.
    3.Inject the Hekate .
    After that it should boot in to "Recovery mode" than do the "Restore factory settings".
