    I recently installed Firmware 9.0.0 and the latest Kosmos/Hekate.
    When I tried booting into CFW, Hekate told me it panicked and reset itself. When it did that, I lost all touch functionality.
    So now, I can boot into Hekate, but I can't press "launch" or anything. I am essentially bricked even though I can boot into Hekate.

    Any help would be much appreciated. I really don't know what to do.

    I think I may have installed Kosmos incorrectly the first time and that's why it panicked.

    Just do a fresh install and make sure your payload is up to date as well

    Fresh install of Hekate? I did and it's still the same. I put on the latest Kosmos with the patches and nothing changes. Can you link me what things I need for the install? Maybe I am doing it wrong.

    I don't know about kosmos but here's atmosphere and the latest signature patches
    all you need to do really is dump keys and choose an installer

    Yeah I tried that and it still doesn't work. I have no clue what is wrong with it. Maybe I will give ReiNX a try again.

    I'm still willing to use Kosmos or Atmos if anyone can help me out.

    I'd check your sd card at this point for problems. Maybe try another card or reinstall tegra drivers

    as far as I know Reinx doesnt support 9.0 yet
    As he said try the latest Hekate if that works
    if not then maybe try a new card or format and put newly downloaded files

    Does my switch have to be plugged in to reinstall tegra drivers? I think I reinstalled them and nothing happened.

    I reformatted my SD card and put a fresh install of hekate/kosmos on and it still does the same thing. No clue what is going on here.

    the pic loaded for me and yes. you're using fat 32 so that doesn't seem to be the proble.
    have you tested this sd card to see if it legitimate?

    https://3ds.hacks.guide/h2testw-(windows).html this is for 3ds but the steps apply to all sd cards make sure it is fully empty and let the test run fully

    Yeah it's legit. It was working fine for like a year or two until I tried upgrading to OFW 9.0 and putting the latest Kosmos on it.
    I did that fine I think, then when I tried booting into CFW, it said some error about panicking and reset itself to hekate, then I couldn't use any touch functions in hekate.
    I'd say maybe something has happened to the Switch, I'm not sure.

    Your sd card could bust at any time sadly (has happened to me for no apparent reason and it can throw people off because it seems unrelated)
    maybe try factory resetting then trying again
    or a different sd you've tested

    Also what did you use to format your sd card? people reccomend fat32 being formatted with guiformat
