    Ah ok, so I'll use Etcher to set the size of the provided boot files to about 4Mb (or what ever is normal for them) and upload them to sd card and restore it with normal hekate?

    Yes you can still run the lockpickrcm payload and get your keys

    If your using etcher you won't need to restore with hekate. Etcher will write the boot files over your current ones. You will lose autorcm if enabled though, do re-enable your preferred way after. Honestly I would just use tegragui once you get your usb-c cable and boot the modified hekate then follow the instructions below

    I got my cable and got TegraRcmGUI to find it but when I push the payload (the modded hekate) it just resets. It says "Welcome to Atmoshpere Fusee" or something and then turns off. It does this when I try to push anything.

    Strange, Do you have a bootloader folder on your SD card? The hekate-ipl.ini inside might be setup to auto boot..try and open it with notepad and let us know how it's set up

    Yes there is a bootloader folder and in the hekate_ipl.ini it says this:
    [config]
    autoboot=0
    autoboot_list=0
    bootwait=3
    verification=2
    backlight=100
    autohosoff=0
    autonogc=1

    Before it turns of I get a screen saying "sept"
    I got a folder of that as well on there and there is a payload.bin, sept-primary.bin and sept-secondary.bin, sept-secondary.enc ... could this cause this?

    No Sept folder is needed to boot higher fw versions. How many burnt fuses do you have?

    Hard to say because I don't really understand this fuse thing. I updated my switch to 6.2.0 via online and tried updating it offline with choidojour to 7.0.1 once, soo... I guess 8?

    You can check if you boot with hekate and go to tool and print fuses I think, it says the amount of burned fuses you have.

    No it will work you just have to boot through a customer bootloader like hekate or fusee to boot into fw lower than 7.x.

    Are you sure you are choosing the right payload to push? Any hekate payload should not boot atmosphere unless you have the config in set to autoboot

    Honestly I dont know. I bought the R4s Dongle and use the pakage they provide from here www r4i-sdhc com
    I guess it is atmosphere since it says so there but I used Reinx so far and it seems to be included also

    Try taking sd card out, un-plug dongle. Plug switch in to computer and use tegraGUI to push the switchboot.bin

    Dude you are a genius ... That worked. It booted.
    I guess now I need to put the card back in and restore the boot files, right?

    I went ahead and did just that and my switch works again. FW 6.2.0 works
    Thank you! Thank you so much for helping me

    Sadly now I can't play smash because the update requires 7.0.1
    But I'm way to afraid to try again ... But I guess there is no other way because of my burnt fuses

    Edit: But ChoiDojourNX is able to upgrade to 7.0.1 from 6.2.0 and the desktop version of it isn't able to?

    Theoretically, you should be able to update to 7.x with ChoidujourNX yes. Make sure you update your CFW files before doing so and everyone recommends FAT32 formatted card

    Now it doesn't work again. It says
    Fatal Error: [NXBOOT] Key derivation failed.
    I didn't change anything. All I did was turning the switch off

    Edit: Nevermind ... Im stupid AutoRCM was turned off and I need that because of my burnt fuses, right?

    Update: I tried updating to 7.0.1 again and again my switch was instantly restarting but this time I learned some many new things (This time I made a full backup of nand and boot)
    But did not need to restore because you said that I should update my cfw files. I did that and even then it happened again so I tried atmosphere instead of reinx and my switch started with firmware 7.0.1
    So everything is fine now. I guess ReiNX is broken.
    One thing I did not understand so far. In the upgrade guide it said that if autorcm is enabled the switch wouldn't send data to nintendo. Is it save to hook it to wifi then? But online play is still out of question I guess?

    ReiNX 2.2.1 supports up to 8.x; it should work too. AutoRCM bypasses Nintendo's bootloader, fuses are only important for downgrades really. If you connect to WiFi your data WILL be sent to Nintendo, and be more likely to be banned. To block Nintendo servers and connect online most people use 90DNShttps://gbatemp.net/threads/90dns-dns-server-for-blocking-all-nintendo-servers.516234/
