    Hi, ive recently helped a friend of mine on hacking the switch and buying the right tools, we have been able to set up emuMMC and make a nand backup, but when we try to boot it up, i get past the atmosphere logo, but the nintendo switch logo doesnt appear at all and hangs there.
    I have taken the files from sdsetup.com, so I dont know what I am really doing wrong. Any help?
    Version 9.0, we have checked the switch is not patched

    Did you get the new nintendo switch or the original release switch?

    SD Files? Eww.

    Manually download the newest Atmosphere release and copy the files over your old ones replacing any it asks to. Then try again.

    Also what format is your SD card in? If you haven't updated officially with the sdcard in you won't have the exFAT driver so make sure you're using FAT32.

    It seems like SD format is the problem, is it fine if the emunand partition is FAT32, and the partition where the atmosphere files are located is exfat?

    I had a similar problem. Hekate wouldn't boot atmosphere using the kosmos package. Just load the fuse primary payload and it should work

    It's fine but why use exFAT? exFAT is not recommended.

    our problem after all was using exfat without the exfat drivers, now it works well!
    honestly no idea, mostly because my experience with exfat wasnt bad at all and worked flawlessly, ill use fat32 for future switches
