So I had my switch on 8.0.0 and I accidentally updated to 9.0.1 . I tried to stop it but the damage was done. after that I restored my Nand which I had from version 6.0.0 and tried to start up an old and latest version of reinx and atmosphere but both got a magic package2 invalid error.
I also had a rawnand which I made from version 8.0.0. but when I restored that I got an 2002-4686 error
after that I updated with the switch recovery mode to 9.0.1 in order to try and get it back to work (i dont really know what im doing)
No when I try to boot up the OFW , I see the switch logo and after that the 2002-4686 error again. even without a sd card inside.

Can anybody help me or is my switch toast?

If the switch boots and give error codes mostly its not bricked then.

Try to enter recovery mode

Power off the console

Press POWER button + volume up + volume down at the same time

Release all buttons when the Switch logo appears.

Welcome to the Recovery Mode

Format or update switch.

I have updated the Switch that way. when I try to initialize to factory settings, I get the same error code

Damm that sucks!!


Mostly a factory reset (without keeping save data) fixe a lot.


Can you still boot in CFW?



Is there a gamecard in your switch? (try to boot with and without)



So long you have RCM try to reflash nand (NxNandManager) keep trying, it took me 3 times with a switch last time to get it working again. (flashing/factory reset)


Hope you get it back to life!

Hey there,
Try the method in the link below, if you fail to do otherwise. I had a switch that was bricked with a wrong update without having before a valid nand dump and that gave blue screen on startup and I managed to bring it back to life, with this tutorial. I do not know if it will help you in your case, but if you do not find another solution try. You see that it is not easy to do, read the steps carefully on the steps you have to follow. If you need help give me a PM. Good luck.

    I suppose you have to resort in buying the components for yourself, after all they cost little.
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    Why not they do the same with the BIOS replacement kits?

    I'd rather wait for a kit to become a available

    I'm happily more confident to do it myself without a kit.

    And If you get a part that might be defective you'd need to wait longer and spend more

    Unless there are additions that need to be done.

    @K3N1,
    You're right.

    Why it's better to buy directly from reputable sources

    Yes, and not from some shitty Chinese store.

    They are many repetable component stores to name such as RS Components.

    But then there's added tax to the mix.

    Makes them more expensive. :(

    USB is fine, but shouldn't it be replaced with bulky, hard to use cables and all sorts of proprietary male-female connector port shapes?

  • Shape @ Shape:
    It's so frustrating to have one simple cable that you can plug in upside down for everything!!!

    USB4 can do up to 40gbps I'd welcome it

    From a Linus video it's essentially just a type c with an advanced chip

    40Gbps is just going to result in even more more lazy developers writing sub-optimal, lazy code.

    How? That transfer speed is insane

  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    That's like saying fast transfers is going to be the downfall of gaming

    Then when devs that actually do take their time makes people cry over them taking their time and having to wait even longer
