So here is some context, I have emunand with SxOs and I decided that since I have my OFW on 5.1.0 that I will prep it to play online with the new pkmn games coming out. Now I have never gone online with this switch in the history of getting it since I got mine at launch, so it has never been connected to the internet via wifi with the ofw and i've connected only with stealth mode on with the emunand under CFW. My CFW is updated to 8.1.0 w/ ChoiDujour same with OFW, updated with ChoiDujour so the fuses are not burnt. Here is my issue, I was checking my system firmware under OFW and I had that issue with the cart and other games to where when you press it to launch it'll pop up with the "Start firmware > Cancel > Update Software" now my switch is in airplane mode and i've already made a nand backup, I accidentally clicked on the update software button and panicked because it was just a heat of the moment thing, my switch restarted and when I checked the firmware it was now on 9.0.1 and I have no idea if the update from the CART burnt my fuses or not. Yes I have a backup of my nand, I just don't know if it's useless or not now.

    I swear, in the future games are gonna be paid for in frames. like 1.00$ for each frame of the game. and you have to pay like 1 million dollars just to beat like the Elder Scrolls 6
