    I'm trying to restore the prodinfo before I bricked my switch and hacdiskmount says this error: Error.

    Was your switch bricked prior this or is it this that caused your brick.
    Do you have your BIS keys backed up?

    The prodinfo was backed up before the brick. I have my BIS keys backed up. What really caused my brick was this video:

    in your closet
    Youtube videos are mostly outdated, only use videos when its hardware specific which can't be outdated.
    And you can't 100% clean CFW yet. Only if you have NAND backup.

    For the record, OP and I have talked at length over PM. She allegedly completed this guide correctly, but the Switch still refuses to boot. When I inspected a decrypted PRODINFO from HacDiskMount, I noticed it was corrupt.

    We found a good backup of PRODINFO from when Atmosphere was used, but the above error occurs when trying to restore it.

    I don't know what was done to screw up the Switch so badly, but I know I'm not getting the full story. I gave up.

    Likely you have messed up something else by following that video.
    Yeah video guides aren't the most reliable source kf information when it comes to switch hacking.

    Believe she can try firmware 5.1 if firmware 6.2 fail to boot.

    @Draxzelex could you shed some light on this
    is there still hope for that bricked switch to be recovered?

    The system version isn't the problem. 5.1.0 was also already tried.
