    Hello All,
    I recently created EmuNAND.
    I then restarted my console and proceeded to enter payload via PC.
    Now it gives me a boot.dat error even though i have a new 64gb sdxc card and the boot.dat is in the folder
    It is fat32 and I just formatted it and placed boot dat and license in the root of my sd card
    and yes My Emunand is using the Hidden partition but I keep getting the boot.dat error any suggestions?

    Look on your SD card when you pressed SD Card Partition then it will format your SD card. so better when you reinstall everything now

    I reinstalled everything and still got the same error.
    I even tried setting up emunand on SD card but that just shows the nintendo logo and gives me a black screen.
    Any other suggestions?

    Let me rephrase.
    So I uninstalled everything installed emunand. Booted up the first time into emunand.
    Closed my Switch went to inject payload and boot.dat error.
    I formatted everything on sd card. Made another emunand using sd card files. I can boot into payload but when I launch CFW emunand it just shows logo and goes black.
    Also while im Injecting the payload from my PC. I have to use and press my volume and power button again when SX OS shows up otherwise again im going to get a black screen.
    So Basically black screens on sd emunand and booting up payload without pressing buttons.
    And Boot.dat error when launching sx os to launch CFW.

    I dont think so. I have it uninstalled from my sx os menu. I've even pressed on uninstall and it happened successfully.
    I've never used AutoRCM though.
    Like I can reformat my SD card since I do not do anything on my OFW switch and have to restore it to remove my homebrew traces.
    So Like Can you tell me specifically what to do after reformat. (It is fat32 with 32kb cluster).
    Like I have 3 files in the root of my sd card.
    The Boot.dat, License and Nintendo Folder. (not going to use Sd card on OFW, Only for EmuNAND (Emutendo)).
