I am on sxos, i wanted to update the the newest firmware because sxos just updated. I used chor diex or what ever its called like normal but at the end it crashed. now i can boot into the sxox screen but launching ofw or cfw takes me to the nintendo logo and the darkness. Any advice?

I think the best is to Restore your NAND backup and look if all running again.
Have you tested to launch Atmosphere?

you can use this site to get the files for SD card and the Payload
https://sdsetup.com/console?switch

i dont know if it works with the Last version to launch it from the SXOS menu.
I use a Dongle that can change the Payload per Button.
thanks, i will give it a try. i dont want to restore from my nand if i dont need to. i dont want to lose any save data.

i fixed it, i was able to get atmosphere to load, i then reinstalled the 9.0 update with choi dejoir. i then formatted the card and put the sxox files on it. now it works like normal.
