    Hello, I'm not that confident with the switch scene but I'm not a newbie.
    I've updated from 6.2.0 to 7.0.0 doing a backup a few hours ago. I had a slow download speed with Hbg Shop and I wanted to switch from 90dns to google dns + incognito to (possibly) fix it.

    I had Kosmos but my sd card was a mess, so I decided to keep the switch and nintendo folder, delete everything else and start from scratch.

    Kosmos does not support incognito, it doesn't let you write the serial, so I decided to try with Athmosphere vanilla but the "album" for the homebrew channel was making my Switch crash.

    I had already spent a lot of time with the process so I decided to try SX OS, I tried to make a EmuNAND but it was taking too much (maybe this was the problem?) so I decided to cancel the process and go on. The thing is that SX OS wouldn't even start, I could make it to the point where it says that the license file was created and I could continue using the cfw, but it wouldn't start.

    Then I went on with ReiNX and it worked, I managed to activate incognito without a problem.

    After that I've reinstalled Kosmos, given that I prefer that cfw. I went on to put the google dnss and then I tried to update Kosmos with Kosmos Updater. After the update was done, the console rebooted but it froze on the cfw logo.

    The situation is this:

    1. AutoRCM was automatically activated
    2. I can actually inject payloads but every cfw I try, it won't go past the boot logo
    3. If I use Hekate as payload without the sd card, I can actually boot to the Hekate menu (the one with the various options, tools, etc)
    4. I have a 6.2.0 full backup made with Hekate
    Is my console actually bricked?? What can I do??
    Any help would be extremely appreciated!!

    They're all updated, I just downloaded everything from scratch.

    I forgot to mention that I can't boot into normal mode, that the sd card is exFAT and the upgrade to 7.0.0 was made with exFAT support

    Replace your Kosmos file with new one.

    Never use kosmos updater when you're on exfat because it will mess up your files. Format to fat32 and try your cfw again.

    as long as you got your backup off the sd card before you ran the kosmos updater youll be safe, worse case worse nand restore and get that sd card to fat32 asap!
