    How exactly did you update to 9.2 when the initial issue began?

    I asked because you said ChoiDujour. Did you use the PC application ChoiDujour, or did you use the Switch homebrew application ChoiDujourNX?

    You can't use ChoiDujour to update to 9.2.0.

    How many NAND backups do you have? Do you also have backups of BOOT0/1?

    Did you restore BOOT0/1 when you restored your NAND backup? Were BOOT0/1 backed up at the same time as the NAND backup? Did you make a NAND backup after bricking your Switch but before restoring the NAND backup?

    You didn't answer my questions.
    1. Did you restore BOOT0/1 when you restored your NAND backup?
    2. Were BOOT0/1 backed up at the same time as the NAND backup?
    3. Did you make a NAND backup after bricking your Switch but before restoring the NAND backup?

    Opps sorry

    1) YES
    2) No
    3) Yes

    I’m searching around as I’m sure I had another previous working backup

    1. Do you know which system version you were on when you made your first NAND backup?
    2. When were BOOT0/1 backed up?
    3. Do you know which system version you were on when you made your BOOT0/1 backups?
    4. Did you make a backup of BOOT0/1 after the brick but before you restored your backups?

    1) no idea , I’d say when SX OS first came out
    2) I think awhile ago and then after it bricked
    3) no real idea
    4 ) yes

    sorry feel like I’m not really helping myself here .but again thanks for much for the advice and help

    is there anyway I can’t check the backups and find out what firmware etc they were on and if they are ok and not corrupt???

    You've made a lot of mistakes. If you have a backup of your NAND and BOOT0/1 from after the brick, I would follow this guide:

    I literally told him that a page back. I think he is trying to find a way to do it with mac instead of pc but not sure.

    No, none that I'm aware of.

    One should not expect to get very far in hacking anything using a Mac. Most enthusiasts don't take Apple products seriously.

    Well after days of trying an trying , I seem to be getting somewhere

    switch now boots ( downgraded to 6.2 with a lot of help from Lacius )

    But still isn’t booting .
    Used the guide , followed every step .
    But getting error code 2005-0005
    Loading using FUSEE Primary.bin just goes to a black screen.


    with and without a micro card in it

    cfw also throws up that error

    weirdly when I use Lockpick or Biskeydump I get a error of KeyBlob 0-5 is corrupt , but I know all keys are good as I checked them in Hactool when I downgraded.

    the good thing is that it boots , but still not working .

    many ideas before I have to send it away to be repaired ?

    also if anyone knows a place that repairs these things that would also be great

    thanks in advance
