    I have a second Switch that I bought a long time ago. It seems to be a demo unit and always shows "Unable to start software" at boot. The Switch is superbanned (I can't even update from recovery menu) but I, finally, have been able create an account and to access homebrews and install game thanks to uLaunch. The problem is there is no shortcut to settings on uLaunch and I would like to access it.

    Do you think it's possible to boot the settings menu from an other place ?

    Thank you for reading !

    If it isn't a patched unit you might have better luck rebuilding a NAND for it, not overly sure though. @Lacius is always in the know, any clue mate?

    I did it with ChoiDuJour, but whatever I tried I always get the same error message.
    Now that I'm certain that games are 100% playables with it (by launching them trough uLaunch), I just want to adjust the settings and use it as an only-docked Switch on my living room :lol:

    Where do you run into issues with ChoiDujour?

    I had no issues with it, it updated the Switch with no problem, I was able to boot it etc. The thing is, it did not change the problem with the error. I think this is something deeper, it seems like this Switch has been made specifically to launch a cartridge or a demo. The fact that it has been superbanned even before I bought it makes me think Nintendo blocked them a long time ago.
