    after launch fs510? Just power hold 30sec. And then boot or custom, or like as "normal" from hekate. My console stuck on logo after fs510 too, and this helped.

    No need fs510 start again. Or custom, or "normal" with hekate. Try again. And i disable auto rcm after first stuck on logo.

    reread the guide, make sure you do read each step twice before doing and that you didn't miss anything. When it comes to booting the console after downgrade, just boot cfw as you normally would

    Yep, I deleted everything on SAFE, and did not copy anything, coz there's nothing in SAFE in the generated files by choidujour.
    I repeated with SYSTEM and USER, and copy the content of both said folder from the generated files by choidujour

    I redid the guide, but this time I'm using 6.1.0 firmware, still the same result.
    Then I try the latest version of rajkosto/hekate instead of CTCaer/hekate, now I get unknown package1, version (= '20180802162753'). Failed to launch firmware. , after running fs_610 or stock.

    And I burned an efuse.

    With CTCaer/hekate, at least it could boot to Nintendo Switch logo and stuck there.

    Alright, I managed to boot lakka and managed to play some psp games and gba games with it albeit no sound.
    This means the switch is fine. I'm starting to think this switch have the emmc module borked?

    I have yet to try layered fs.


    I redid the guide with NX1.0.0 firmware. Now instead of stucking at the Nintendo Switch logo, I got the error 2162-0002 black screen.
    According to https://switchbrew.org/wiki/Error_codes and https://switchbrew.org/wiki/SVC, it's very possible that my switch have some sort of hardware issue.
    It's strange that I can boot lakka fine though.

    make a copy of your key file and remove the ones that it fails on
