    Long story short i updated my switch lite by accident to 11.0.1 and had SXOS installed. I had created a nand backup prior to do anything else and i have the backup safe.
    The issue is i think i broke my switch lite in trying to get into hackte switch CFW. I was able to successfully restore from my nand backup to 10.2 which worked. Then i tried a
    few guides to get astophemere CFW running and pulled out my sd card while my switch lite was on. i assumed i turned it off but i didnt. so after this issue no matter what i do
    my switch lite wont turn on at all or boot into SXOS. its just showing a blank screen. i tried hard reset, tried to factory reset via volume down -+ and power button it wont turn on either.
    tried to leave it connected to a charger for a few hours and still wont turn on. is there anything else i can try to get it at least booting again or did i damage it permanently by pulling the SD out
    when it was on?

    Hold power 30 seconds then release. Turn back on.

    I assume you are using spacecraftNX?

    Reflash the firmware to the modchip, then boot hekate and restore your backup including boot0./1

    Okay we'll start with first thing

    Is your sd card corrupted? If so - reformat it and replace the cfw files

    Did you restore the boot 0/1 files with your backup? Yes or no

    Is the modchip detectable when you plug it into your pc?

    No its hardware modded into the switch lite itself if that makes sense

    Update: I was able to unplug the battery from my Switch lite for about 2 hrs. Plugged it back in and plugged in the charger. Noticed it blinked blue for a few and then turned green. Does that mean anything?

    Well it sounds like the console isn't dead.
