    Only use my files attached if your following my guide/thread
    or it probably wont work

    Dude you have not dumped something from the boot loader..

    in the ipl.bin bootloader ive attached...

    you need to goto console info and dump fuse and tsec

    the in the tools menu on the ipl.bin boot loader you need to dump package 1/2 or package 1

    then goto backup of the ipl.bin bootloader and dump emmc boot0/boot1

    It will work your just missing a dump Please read all information i have provided

    and read through the posts

    Check you sd also to make sure you have all your dumps please check do think yeah u did it . you may still be missing something

    I see. then the answer is still yes but when you back up your nand it will put your nand in parts

    rawnand.bin 1 to 14

    And you use this script
    https://github.com/CTCaer/hekate/releases/download/v3.2/joiner_scripts_for_windows_linux_macos.zip
    to join the parts into 1 Rawnand.bin

    Now at this time hekate bootloader will backup any format..

    But will only restore Rawnand.bin and not parts

    to restore nand you need the sd card in exfat format anyway....

    But one second there.. because your on 2.3 system it wont recognise
    ex fat in the system i dont think it applies for boot loader

    So the answer you need is yes and yes lol..

    Backup your sd and format it too exfat . then place my files attached in main post
    to root of sd..
    Make sure to have atleast 32gb free space or 30 just for the rawnand dump..

    This way it will backup your nand as 1 rawnand.bin.

    Folow the guide

    Nice! Just to be sure if it is copied over successfully to PC, is there any way to check if the bits were copied correctly on PC or not? Thanks!

    For anyone unsure if the archive bits have been set for folders, right-click the folder and select 'Properties' then click on 'Advanced'

    Ignore what I stated earlier. It appears as folders on the SD card display the 'Archive' box upon initially right-clicking and selecting 'Properties'. I noticed all folders have the 'Archive' box unchecked while all of the files on the root have the 'Archive' box checked. I then decided to conduct some testing using FAT32.

    First, I checked the 'Archive' box for all folders on the SD card. Upon booting Hekate, the Switch stated it could not read the SD card. Upon booting the Homebrew menu, it stated it could not find any files on the SD card. So this means you need the 'Archive' box unchecked for all folders on your SD card for the console to read them.

    Then, I returned the folders back to normal and unchecked the 'Archive' box for all files on the root of the SD card. This means all of the files on the SD card have the 'Archive' box unchecked. Upon booting Hekate and the Homebrew menu, the Switch acted normally. This meant that it doesn't matter whether the 'Archive' box is checked or unchecked for files on the root of the SD card.

    In conclusion, for the Switch to properly read files on the SD card, all folders on the Switch must have the 'Archive' box unchecked. For the files on the root of the SD card, it does not matter. Also when you are unchecking the 'Archive' box for folders on the SD card, make sure it is applied to all of the files and folders inside, not just the base folder itself.

    Everything is safe now thanks to your guide @Canna
    CFW is a nice think but to be sure you can test everything you need a backup.....thats where you came into the game :D
    THANKS!

    P.S. i've one little idea: Please mark in red that it is important to use YOUR files!
    (TSEC keys can't be saved with never *.bin files)
