    Hold the phone. The way this is described, it sounds like you need to trigger bootrom > charging to bring the switch back to life if I am understanding correctly. People better be sure this isn't reliant on the bootrom as autorcm corrupts that. Autorcm can charge, but never trigger the battery / bootup sequence without first deploying a bootloader.

    Has anyone confirmed bypassing this step by deploying a payload?

    The re-enablement of the BATFET, aka battery re-connection, is triggered only by plugging your device to USB (wall adapter or PC).
    This re-enables it and you can inject a payload, or with no autorcm it will power on the console.

    Thank you for the clarification. Sounds like this is the way to go then.

    Do you recommend to use this if I only did a nand backup with Hekate?

    It will fix the battery desync issue regardless of payload.

    Does nand backup cause battery desyncing?

    There have been a few reports in the "battery after" thread that did report battery desync with random payloads including hekate; however, the most common desync occurs from Linux.

    Its a manual shutdown to ensure the Switch is not in RCM or some other mode before you try turning it on again. If you don't do step 4, then try to turn the console on, but it doesn't, its either already on or in RCM.

    It freaking worked.
    Even though I didn't even use Lakka that much.
    Thanks a lot, OP!

    Well, it was a mess to set up. At one point, I thought my Switch was bricked but it turned out it wasn't (what a relief). Right now, I still need Paragon extFS before I can transfer my ROMs over to the Switch.
    I will probably use Lakka not very often, but only when I really feel like it.

    This payload is brilliant, solved the battery desync issue.
    was about to disassemble the switch to disconnect then reconnect the battery
    thx
