    Hello, I would like to know if there's any risk if I use the rawnand.bin backup on a new switch.

    inside your crappy old PC
    yes cause everything is console unique it will brick a different switch if you restore it

    You backed up the bricked nand?
    You can't just restore your nand to a new switch... especially a fucked up one

    You know what's better than one bricked switch?

    Two bricked switches

    First thing you shoulda done before doing anything with the switch was make a nand backup.

    I just don't get the logic behind flashing a bricked nand image to a new one

    Common sense ain't common at all

    True, I just answered the user in question with what we know a bad DevMenu NSP is capable of. I feel like OP does not have a bricked console but a video game console that cannot play games, well, is about as good as a paperweight.

    That would be a semi brick, since you can't play games.
    If that's what happened to OP then it looks like it's fixable.
    Might be fixable anyway, depends on what exactly OP did.
    @ecchilada What exactly did you do in DevMenu?

    Have you done the basics like hold power down for 30 seconds and then try rebooting. Or even unplugging the battery letting it sit for a few minutes then trying again just to be sure it's not a hard lockup.

    You mean on purpose, since you can't remove it on accident unless you were sleep walking or possessed by Nintendo telling you to remove the SD card.

    wait what how on earth you remove an sd card on accident from a Switch? Gonna need to explain what actually happen if your looking for help
    Did you use auto rcm? most ppl claim their switch is bricked b/c of that, but it really isnt

    How does that "brick" even turn out?
    Did you try holding power for 12 seconds?
    Did you try going into maintenance mode to fix things from there?
    Also you could (theoretically) edit the NAND backup that you made after you messed up and remove the devmenu (or whatever NSP you installed) from it before restoring it. Not sure if and how this works, but theoretically it should be possible.

    Correct me if i´m wrong but isn´t the "bad ticket brick" fixed by reinitialising the switch via recovery mode?

    Even if OP removed the sd during nsp install process it should result in a faulty/broken ticket (though why the heck would someone do this??)

    If you mean a factory reset, that's what I meant by going into maintenance mode. This could even be done through hekate to prevent fuses burning if it matters to OP.
