    even if the nand is bricked from auto rcm cant you still boot rcm and just fix it? you dont even need the nand to boot rcm mode

    Lol that has nothing to do with the topic. It's just an obvious thing about how autoRCM has always worked.

    "This firmware is UNHACKABLE! All Switches will be bricked! Even unmodded switches!"

    -Garyopa, probably.

    It was me that mentioned bricking, Was a mistake on my behalf about bricking in auto rcm, Not been well and not thinking straight and forgot to mention it actually only applied to patched units

    The AutoRMC is a permanent patch that is made in the system, from which it can be reversed, but the warning is always there. And in 8.x what they have done is change the way they should be patched, so AutoRMC as we know it is not only unusable, but it also causes a brick. You can perform AutoRMC but changing the address that corresponds to the new system.

    In short, the old or current version of RMC is obsolete, it must be updated.

    All autoRCM does is it changes a bit in BOOT0 so the signature gets fucked, the systems sees it as invalid and has nothing to boot from, and when the Tegra has nothing to boot from it goes into RCM. Current autoRCM can and does work just fine on 8.0.0

    Exactly, it just corrupts boot0, so it panics and goes to RCM. It's on all these Nvidia units, not just Switches.

    So, what causes the brick ?. Do you think it's worth upgrading, will Atmosphere still work without using AutoRMC?

    Atmo does not support 8.0 yet, so updating now will leave you without CFW. Unless you want to mess with downgrading and if you didn't prepare to be able to downgrade it's a headache. Just wait till they have a working version.

    The brick is BS. Uneducated guess by two people.

    If your system is an unpatched system, it's fine. Just wait until Atmosphere got 8.0 support before you upgrade.

    So, I just have to be more cautious when modifying my console.

    You always have to be. Just have a full backup and you should be fine for the most.

    if you got an iPatched Switch, AutoRCM is off limits for the forseeable future.
