    Hello,

    I'll try to describe my problem as best as possible from the beginning. Everything was fine when I was using my switch CFW (Kosmos+Atmosphere) until it prompted a update and like many others, I clicked yes cus I didn't use my homebrew for a while. Now, everytime I try to boot into Atmosphere from hekate, it just sends me back to hekate. If I injected fusee_primary.bin directly from TegraRcmGUI, the screen lights but remains black.

    I've tried so many things:
    - ReiNX (black screen)
    - Swapping SD card
    - Formatting SD (always has been Fat32, 32kb)
    - Wait a few minutes on black screen
    - Atmosphere files only
    - Clean install of atmosphere, kosmos
    - Newest version of Atmosphere
    - Restoring NAND backup twice (boot0 & boot1 and rawnand.bin.00-14)
    - Reading other user's problems and trying those solutions

    I'm really out of ideas and feel so helpless.. usually restoring a NAND backup should fix it, am I missing some files?

    Are you sure you have the latest version of Atmosphere?
    A lot of things changed with the 9.0.1 firmware and without the latest version you definitly get black screens.
    Also leaving old stuff on the SD card sometimes confuses Atmosphere.

    I cleaned the sd multiple times, even tried a second one and I did download atmosphere version from its github. Unless theres nightly build?

    I can't believe it, I finally got it running again! My switch is alive again.

    For all others who have the same problem, here's what I did:
    - Removing every folder and file from sd and putting it back into switch
    - Injecting the payload hekate_ctaer_5.0.2.bin, which will then boot into hekate without gui
    - Restoring backup (boot and rawnand) and et voilà, it works

    I don't know why restoring from hekate gui won't work, but at least without files, it did now.
