Gonna need some help on this one... I think I bricked my switch just now. I was trying to install CFW for the first time (ReiNX) using TegraRcmGUI, and out of nowhere the switch stops responding. I didn't even make it to the splash screen. Now my switch doesn't turn on with or without RCM mode.

- Pressing the power button does nothing, and booting into RCM mode does nothing as well.
- I'm 99% sure the switch is fully charged.
- All I have is an RCM jig.

Please help...

Try holding down the power button for 12 seconds or so and then try the RCM method again...see if you get a response.

do you have autorcm installed?

hold power button for 12 seconds and then tap it again, you should boot to the normal OS

then power off and try again
