    Okay, when I inject the hekate payload it tells me "error while injecting payload (RC =-3)

    So my switch is patched? :glare:

    Tried again and now it it tells me it was successfully injected?

    But I should see something on my switches screen?

    When I try again the TegraRcmGUI tells me: "Invoking TegraRcmSmash.exe with args...

    But it doesn't do more. If I click on the TegraRcmGUI apllication it it freezes (not responding)

    Check your serial number against what is known as ipatched. Just search this forum. There are lots of posts about it but my bet is you're patched

    OK are your drivers in?

    Think you might need RCM drivers.

    Not 100% sure, but a program called Zadig might help. We use it on our SDR receivers. It can put the "libusbk" driver on there. (Is that the right one?)

    I think it is a lack of drivers on your machine.

    Just tried on another computer. It won't work. Always the same problem.

    TegraRCMGui freezes, Zadig won't let me install the drivers.

    Is it possible that my USB-C cable doesn't work with it?

    Hoe long should the process of injecting a payload take?

    It says "successful" instantly if I try it for the first time when my switch is getting connected.

    My serial is a serial of a switch that is possibly patched.

    But I should get a boot screen on my switch if the inection was successfull but my screen stays black.

    Or could it be that it doesn't work for me because I don't have a sd card inserted inside my switch?

    Can somebody help me?

    Do I need to inject a payload while a sd card is inserted inside my switch?

    I don't have a sd card at home and don't want to buy one until I know for sure that my switch isn't patched.

    You cannot use CFW without an SD card. However, you can launch a payload like Hekate without an SD card.

    I don't mean to be redundant or disrespectful, but bumping your post isn't going to help. What you need to do is read through the guides and links provided. They have more than enough info on how to get started.
