    I have a problem, I have done everything correctly without any problem, but now when I leave my switch in standby it turns off by itself, and when I try to turn it on only with the power button it remains in black screen
    What can I do?

    hi, i have the same problem.
    all do as well without any problem, but a the step 9, i initialize the configuration and i turn off the switch.
    i unabled the autorcm but i can't turn on my switch normally (black screen)
    when i use sx os i can launch the CFW and OFW
    .
    i format an sd card with only boot.dat ands license.dat inside , but with this sd card i can't launch CFW or OFW
    thanks for your help

    Hello,

    I'm trying to use choidujour for firmware 5.1 but i keep getting the errors

    ChoiDujour.exe --keyset=keys.txt fw

    ChoiDujour 1.1.0 by rajkosto
    uses hactool by SciresM (https://github.com/SciresM/hactool)
    visit https://switchtools.sshnuke.net for updates and more Switch stuff!

    Using source firmware files from folder fw
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "ChoiDujour.py", line 517, in <module>
    File "ChoiDujour.py", line 225, in call_hactool
    Exception: Error: section 0 is corrupted!

    [15216] Failed to execute script ChoiDujour

    In fw folder are the files from firmware 5.1, i think i'm having trouble with finding this populated keys file from hactool, i cannot generate it myself since the firmware of the switch (bricked else i would use choidujouNX) is 6.2+ and for exemple this tutorial : https://gbatemp.net/threads/how-to-get-switch-keys-for-hactool-xci-decrypting.506978/ is not working, i tryed it just in case

    I found a big keys.txt online and when i try it i get this error

    Anyone can help me out please?

    Thx

    @zakwarrior remove the keys that it’s complaining about from your key file. Also remove the keys from you post, most of them are violate this site’s rules

    I just checked and I have 10 burnt fuses. Is that bad? How do I not burn anymore?

    10 fuses means your sysNAND must be on 8.1.0 for it to boot properly, and it means nothing can ever be gained from a downgrade.

    To avoid burning fuses, either don't update your sysNAND or keep AutoRCM installed at all times.

    Hi All

    Need some advice here. My friend used this method last year to get me from 4.1 to 5.1 which I have used ever since.

    As my son wants to play the latest games on 8.1 offline what are my options?

    1) am I best reverting to original 4.1 and then using sxpro emunand. If so how do I revert back to original?

    2) use another method to update to 8.1 keeping the same setup? Ie RajKs other method? If so where do I start from there? Lol

    Apologies for these questions as I’m new to all this and my friend has moved away from the switch scene.

    Many thanks

    Since this program only supports up to firmware 6.1, you will have to use the homebrew application ChoiDujourNX to update your firmware instead. You do not have to revert your firmware in order to use EmuNAND.

    Boot into recovery (not RCM) to remove the downloaded update if it has not been installed yet. Then, use something like 90DNS to block updates.
