    So, I can't get my switch to boot at all. When I got home today, my system wouldn't read my cartridges, so I disabled AutoRCM to prepare to send it to be repaired, but then I re-enabled it just for the hell of it and it can read cartridges again for some reason. So I used TegraRcmGUI 2.6 to boot back into RCM, launched fusee-payload as usual, and atmosphere never booted. Now I can't do anything at all. Nothing. I've tried holding the power button for 30 seconds, brought up TegraRcmGUI but it doesn't recognize my console anymore so I can't boot back into RCM... I have no idea how to fix this. Is my console bricked?

    Can you boot into original firmware. Game carts usually wont read in custom firmware from what i have witnessed. Maybe try deleting atmo files and reinstalling (copy to sd card) make sure to remove all atmo files before re copying files

    Thanks for the reply. I was able to somehow get it to boot into RCM again. I plugged the system up to an outlet as if I was going to charge the system and held the power button for about 15s. Then I left it charging for about 30 mins then unplugged it and held the power button down for another 12-15 seconds. After that, TegraRCMGUI allowed me to inject a payload. I wish I had not burnt my fuses though, that really pisses me off because I could go back to 4.1.0 if I needed to.

    By the way, my gamecard reader wasn't reading games simply because of a setting in the file BCT.ini. You just have to add nogc = 0 at the end of the file. Good to know after-the-fact.

    At least my Switch isn't a brick if there is anything good that came from this.
