Probably theres nothing i can do, but I have a clean nand backup of fw 4.1, i updated my switch long time ago using rajikosto method (long guide) to 5.1, had only 5 burned fuses.

I took a long flight with my switchs (autorcm) battery completely drained, i tried charging the switch with the planes power outlets but it was not charging at all, i was in fact losing charge (i was checking with hekate, had about 1% of battery).

I figured that maybe if i removed autorcm with hekate, the switch will charge normally. So i did that but only got my switch to burn the 4.1 fuses. The switch didnt charged normally, I couldnt charged it during the flight, I also never boot to horizon nor i was able to use the switch during the flight, but now i have 6 burned fuses.

I got somewhat annoyed as i have read a lot and thought i knew what i was doing. After thinking about it all, i dont care too much about burned fuses but i do care about my clean nand backup

is there something i could do?? could i edit my clean backup and change its fw from 4.1 to 5.1? so i can use it and restore it if necessary? Is my backup useless now?

how could i create another clean nand backup?

did you leave it in the dock charging over night yet?
I have had autorcm battery problems twice...and an over night dock charge fixed it..

I already fixed that and i have recovered a few times from a dead battery with autorcm

my problem is another, i burned my switch fuses by mistake and my clean nand backup is of a lower fw, i am asking if theres anything i could do to still be able to use this clean backup

Restore your backup, boot ofw with hekate(rcm) so it ignores the fuses, then update to a versión that match your fuse count with a game cart or just go online and update.

Another option is using choidujour, but its riskier ban wise because it involves cfw.

Once you update to a fw with the same fuse count number than your hardware you wont need hekate, if you update to a version with more burned fuses it will burn them and boot normally without the need of RCM.

  • Restore your clean 4.1 NAND backup
  • Boot using Hekate's "stock" option, which skips the fuse check (Personally, I'd just boot Hekate without the SD card inserted, to be 100% sure I don't have a "dirty" Nintendo folder)
  • I'd then update using an "official" method (either directly to 6.0 using OFW update, or to 5.1 using an actual cartridge). Because ChoiDujourNX needs CFW and HB Loader, I personally don't want to use those when making my "clean" NAND backup
  • Then make a new NAND backup after updating

Thank you very much for your help! wow didnt knew this was possible, i thought i was screwed

So, whats the point of doing a new clean nand backup if I still can use the one i have???

I dont have any game cart except for mario odyssey, so my only option would be to update by connecting online. But i would prefer not to burn more fuses, and I still dont see the need to update to 6.0

So, can i just keep my old clean backup and continue like nothing happened?

When using Hekate to boot a lower firmware (which requires less burned fuses than you have), sleep mode is broken, and when the Switch goes to sleep, it crashes:
https://gbatemp.net/threads/switch-...tore-crashes-after-sleep.519091/#post-8301468

Also, "continuity" is what matters most to Nintendo's logging, it seems. It's not only about having a "clean" NAND.
i.e. if some logs your Switch sent in the past suddenly go missing, it means you did something questionable to get rid of those logs.
So personally, I make a new NAND backup every time I go "off the grid" (i.e. going from online, then deleting my wifi settings)
And also after each update.

Of course, you don't have to do this NOW, but I recommend doing it when you finally want to connect your Switch to wifi.

I see, thanks. I use my switch completely offline, Im only interested in the clean backup in case I somehow screw up the switch. At the moment im not interested at all in playing online or connecting the switch online.

I will then keep my old clean backup for now as my main backup, thank again

Bumping this, I have the exact same issue. I have a clean backup of 4.1, didn't know anything about burning fuses and updated to 7.0 without realizing, then tried to downgrade back. My question is, if I boot into 4.1 using hekate after restoring the nand, and I go online and update officially, will I get banned? Do I need to wipe my logs or something?

Your fuse is burn so no point of downgrading as you would always have to use a boot loader now to boot.

Thing is I already downgraded and I've tried using the sdsetup instructions to help but with no avail. My problem is upgrading back to 7.0-7.01

Your fuse is burn so you wouldn't be able to boot into OFW without a bootloader, as for updating back into 7.0.1 you can use ChoidujourNX if you can boot into CFW.

I'm unable to boot into any bootloader, however when I pushed the sxos payloader, it booted into OFW, I'm just wondering if i go online to update, would I get banned or not
