    Hello,

    My switch is on 6.0 updated by official means.
    When i run Hekate how can i tell if i can downgrade or not?
    I understand it has to do with the number of fusees burnt.

    Also when i shut down my switch i go to turn it on again and in most cases its flat.
    Like it has stayed on rather then shut down.
    Is there a way i can fix this?

    Thanks

    Just the fact that you updated via official means, means you can't downgrade cause the fuses were burnt

    Depends, are you sure that
    A)You don't have AUTORCM on?
    B)are you actually turning it off and not just putting it in sleep mode

    You can't power off from Horizon OS when you have AutoRCM.
    After 10-15 seconds it "secretly" powers back on into RCM, where it uses up battery as if it was turned on and not in sleep mode. And since RCM is a black screen, you can't tell.

    Details here:

    tl;dr: if you want a reliable way to power off with AutoRCM, inject Hekate and power off using Hekate.
    Or just keep your Switch in sleep mode, and leave it in the dock when unused, like most people usually do.
    Then you'll never run into the powering off hassles associated with AutoRCM.
