    How could anyone have known it bricked? That it wasn't real sure, but at most i thought it'd be something like a "ha-ha! You wish!"

    EDIT JULY 23TH

    Fake SX OS "cracked" Payload bricks the Switch. Can't boot Horizon, can't get into maintenance menu.
    RCM works. Only way to restore is a full raw NAND backup. Got none? Get a new Switch.
    Building and flashing a firmware with ChoiDujour does not work.

    Payload still up and around! Beware of ANY Payload not posted by original creator, downloaded from github/releases or built yourself.

    Some are saying it was Kate who posted the fake brick code in Discord. At least that's what I heard. :O

    Yup, contained a payload that bricks the console.

    Easter Bunny? That was no bunny. That was ASCII art of a guy spreading his butthole, and the message that one fell for a prank and you should power down.
    And then, bricked. Console not booting anymore.

    Anyone got a clue if it's possible to fix withouth backup? Lost my system backup, my hard drive broke and i had forgot to re-backup. Maybe figure out what it does and undo it?
