    Yo guys, I think I bricked somehow my switch.

    Yesterday I unpacked my switch and did a NAND Backup using hekate (FW 3.0.1). Today I wanted to use ReiNX (downloaded darth meteos package)

    I dont really think I did something wrong (copied the data on my SD card, went into RCM mode and injected the payload). Then the ReiNX Screen appeared and seconds later nothing happened.

    Now I cant literally do anything with the switch. I doesnt turn on, I cant get into RCM mode. Its dead. If I connect it to my PC Windows detects it as a "unknown device".

    Any ideas?

    Did you try holding down the power button for around 12 seconds to completely turn it off?

    Thats good :)

    Cant really help with the ReiNX thing though, I have not really messed around with it yet :P
    I think I remember hearing something about it being broken on 3.X awhile ago, I dont know if it was ever fixed or not though

    Remove fs_mitm.kip under your sysmodules folder under ReiNX

    Just use RajNX as it has compatibility across all fw versions without need to specify which version you have. This leaves out room for error. Its pretty much identical to ReiNX at this point they are all compiling from the same sources, and/or doing things a similar way.

    https://files.sshnuke.net/RajNXv072.zip

    Latest version.

    then my next suggestion would be to download dark meteos's 3.0.1

    Be sure to delete your ReiNX folder and then extract those files to your SD card.

    Unsure whats going on, but its definitely abnormal.

    What payload are you using? I would stick to hekate 3.2 for now.

    Its for use with LayeredFS however this causes issues on firmwares below 4.0 as those are not supported via LayeredFS meaning the console cannot boot using it. Higher firmwares should be fine using LayeredFS however Tinfoil has issues when LayeredFS is running.

    There should be a sticky that just says if you think your switch is bricked hold the power button down for 15 seconds. So many times on this forum people have thought their switch was dead while it was actually just stuck in RCM mode or something else....

    It means Nintendo did a poor job if hardly anyone ever seems to know about this "feature". You would think anyone with a PC would know about long press power button though.
