    Just downgrade it, Pretty easy to do. Make sure to make a back up first.

    Pretty sure he was referring to downgrading with ChoiDujour and just having a NAND backup as a precautionary measure (heck the tutorial tells you to make one before starting). It may not be the most elegant tool for downgrading but who knows how long we will have to wait for CFW to support 8.0 and some people are impatient.

    Well he could but it ain't easy to rebuild the firmware, with the regular Choidujour, people should learn that they should always have a NAND backup or they gonna learn the hard way, imagining this was the Wii U or the 3DS before NTRbootHax. SciresM did tweet telling people to stay put.

    Why can't people use 90DNS or incognito? Filling the whole GBAtemp site with this 8.0.0 crap EVERYWHERE.

    LOL, also there's no such a thing as accidentally updating - it's a choice and you need to press buttons to do it. It's not like tripping up or spilling your tea. It's a deliberate act.

    Not the first and most certainly not the last. Many will update (my kid, my girlfriend etc. Updated) It happens every firmware update. Have patience and help if you can. If you're intent is to belittle or lecture on why they should have made a proper nand backup (raw and boot0 and boot1). Save your breath. Most people now aday's follow outdated YouTube videos. Most of which are outdated and uninformed. Just help if you can and resist the temptation to tear down. Best advice I can give.

    If I downgrade using choudujour/that tutorial, will I lose my installed games and save data?

    Made a mistake..
    I updated my Switch to 8.0.0.
    So, I made backups: BOOT0/1 and rawnand (and partitions saved also) at first point from my 8.0 ofw with Hekate.
    I try to downgrade to my last backup (5.0.1).
    BOOT0/1 and rawdump was used.
    Ended up with BSOD. I think, because my burned fuses.. (Ofw BSOD, CFW blackscreen ReiNX 2.1.1)
    Then I flashed back my 8.0 BOOT0/1.
    BSOD again.. (Ofw BSOD, CFW blackscreen ReiNX 2.1.1)
    Now I flashing back 8.0 ofw complette set.
    I hope, 8.0 rawnand will boot.. or I am in big trouble.. :/
