    Um I'm sorry but how?
    Also what command line are you using? I'm using Windows 10 and neither powershell or cmd works with some of these commands least the first step (till 6 where I'm stuck) it gave errors so I just did so manually

    I have bricked 6.2.0 switch (pkg2 encryption failed), then downgrading to 5.1.0, and updating to 6.2.0 with choidojourNX.
    Maybe if get key for encrypt 6.2 can do all simpler.

    Rcm realized CPU, payload can start anyway. Just freez - hold power button 30 sec, and try again get rcm

    If all bad and power hold dont help, just reattach battery. All manipulation on nand cant affect on rcm mode. Or battery discharg, or system freez

    I have a problem , I lost everything on my computer and have been off line for 10 and better hour's now.
    I have no backup nand and after an update through choi, to 7.0 my switch no longer loads into the firmware...Blacks out after Nintendo symbol.

    Would I do thee above and where would I start?

    Disable autorcm and try start. If cant help try enter recovery mode and recover switch.
    Or follow the manual on first page. If keys.txt cant create find this on internet (its not unique)

    Hello everyone.
    I managed to follow the guide to the T, using firmware 5.1 files.
    However, my switch still stuck on the Nintendo Switch logo upon power u the very first time, rendering I'm unable to complete the first time setup screen, which also mean I cant boot it up officially.
    I had the understanding that after following this guide, I will be able to recover from any brick, but apparently not.

    if you leave first time setup screen you almost complete. Launch any custom with hekate, then update firm with chodujourNX. Console no boot on offical mode if burnin fuses (i gues). And after all operation autorcm mode on (no boot without inject payload)
    Its fix bricks 100%
