    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.

    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.
