    Yes I know I should have known better and should have turned off the switch when not playing for a long period of time. Autorcm is installed so I can return to my 4.1.0OFW backup if things will mess up (no fuses burned).

    But it happened anyway so the informations are a bit unclear.
    I read that I need to open the switch and have to charge the battery externally.
    Others say that it just takes a lot of time to charge the battery :/

    What is right?

    I have an USB-multimeter and when I put the switch on the wallcharger (outputs max 3A and support QC3.0) there are 2 states:

    -it drains 0,462A when trying to power on (and it holds this state)
    -it drains 0,385A when holding the powerbutton for ~8 seconds (it also holds this state)


    But the switch is not reacting to anything. No led lights, no battery icon on the display etc.
    The switch is "charging" now for 20mins.

    What should I do?

    Perfect question solved! It took ~45min until the switch was able to boot! For reference I let it charge @ 0.385A
