Hi,

A few hours back I updated the OFW on my Switch, and I haven't been able to get it to boot OFW ever since. I can boot into CFW and the SX OS boot menu just fine - but when I select OFW the screen just turns black and won't start.

I have my original nand backed up in case I need it, but I'm not sure if writing it to the sysnand can mess something else up, with potentially blown e-fuses etc.

Any ideas on what has gone wrong or how to solve it?

I'm running SX OS 3.0.4 on a Mariko Switch with an SX Core installed.

Thanks in advance!

Is the SD card formatted as exFAT or FAT32?

    he made sure to soak the rug thoroughly so every part of it is evenly soaked, even if it doesn't get rid of the stain completely you can't tell because it's all evenly stained

    if all else fails pour the bleach in your eyes so you can't see the stain anymore
