    So I was having issues with 8.1 and booting any games, so I still had my nand backup of 6.2 and decided to downgrade using hekate. It was working OK, I turned the console off, took out my memory card to add some files to it, put it back in, pushed a payload to the console again, booted into CFW. It seemed ok, screen was dark so I figured it went to sleep, pressed power button and the Home screen came up, went into the dashboard and then the console went off and the blue screen came up. Is my console completely screwed now? I'm unable to send any payloads to it. As soon as I turn the console on(regular and dev way) it just goes directly to blue screen.

    For the short period I had the console on with 6.2, my problem with launching games went away.

    Is there any way I can fix this or did I brick my console?

    thanks

    well I guess the fuses are off now, but I did use MY nand backup and not one I found online. Is my console bricked for good, or is there a way I can somehow upgrade back to my 8.1 nand backup?

    Nah. You just need to boot hekate. Get a fuse count and let us know what it is. Then we'll be able to better help you.

    Also when you restored you nand did you also restore boot0 and boot1?

    im having trouble getting into RCM though unfortunately, so im not certain i can get into hekate. i found another post on here where a user said to have the console plugged in, then turn it off and then turn it back on and he was able to send a payload. this isnt working for me though.

    i did restore boot0 and boot1 with my nand.

    thanks for your reply, any help or other ideas are greatly appreciated

    Interesting, boot0 and boot1 files are firmware specific, this is very contradictory to my experience!
    I downgraded once and got this blue screen but luckily i had boot0 and boot1 files i was just able to flash them, boot via hekate to cfw and upgrade back?
    Also didn't know there was a purple screen of death?!?!?!?
    New stuff here folk. :)

    Maybe your Switch is dead. Plug it in for about an hour or two. Then try it out.

    Was your 6.2 backup autorcm'd ever?

    How are you trying to get into rcm? Maybe your jig pins have been bent over time and you need a new one.

    my 6.2 firmware was not autorcm'd and i was thinking maybe my pins did bend, so i bought a new one last night and hoping that is the answer. i keep turning the switch on with the blue screen, it keeps coming on and shutting off relatively quick now as opposed to staying on constantly so i think im finally getting it to die.

    You bought a new what? Rails or JIG? Were you using autorcm on 8.1? If so then are you sure you're remembering how to get into RCM properly?

    After downgrading whit choidujour it is put in autoRCM automatically I think. That could be the reason why you can't boot. If you left your switch alone for sometime the battery could be drained. Put your switch on the charger and wait minimum 2 hours. Then try to start your Switch with hekate as payload.

    Are we sure that BOOT0/BOOT1 did belong to the backup OP flashed? Since they DO relate to the FW Version, it could be som kind of Version mismatch oder Error while flashing them. Now, we have to wait for OP and if he manage to go into RCM.

    He said downgrade to 6.2 with hekate, so did not use choidujour. Should have said "restore"

    I'm just wondering what's on people's mind that makes them want to downgrade...

    What files did you restore?
    RAWNAND.BIN? What about BOOT0.BIN and BOOT1.BIN?
    Try to rebuild an 8.1 NAND. There's a guide for it somewhere around this forum.

    Package2 failed verification, either the restore had an error or your backup is hosed
