    Yes.
    You have to ACQUIRE A FULLY POPULATED hactool KEYS file. It will need to be able to decrypt the NCAs of the firmware version you are installing, As well as have the XCI keys if you are going to be using an cart image as the firmware source.

    If you backed up boot partition and Rmmc you should have a boot part file and a 32gb file... that's all what you need.

    Are you able to launch the switch and run homebrew ?
    If so use choidujourNX instead

    choidujour only lets you downgrade to the highest of 5.1.0
    i have tried the 6.X.X and none work for me and 7.x.x and dont compile...

    Safe partition is normally empty anyway so no need to change unless choidujour spits out safe files in its output folder. its mounted fine just empty,,,,

    Glad its working now ..

    CASE CLOSED.

    Backup your switch first make sure you have a full nand backup
    can you run home brew on the switch ? if so use choidujour NX method instead.

    if usingchoidujour.exe then you should post your errors or atleast a screnshot,

    if its warning you about keys.. then remove the keys it says from the keys.txt or prod.keys file. make a backup

    Switch is on 8.0 so no way to run homebrew. I removed the mentioned keys and got more key errors after this looks like all the keys. The keys file has been used fine before for xci conversions etc.
