    Those errors aren't because it's missing necessary keys. Those errors are because there are keys there it doesn't need and doesn't understand.

    Where did you get your keys.txt (don't give me a link if it was online)?

    For anyone reading this thread, the issue was resolved by using the proper keys.txt file.

    A little off topic, but why on Earth do so many people try to follow YouTube tutorials for stuff like this?

    Maybe I'm just a crusty old man and things are different now, but a video is literally the absolute LAST place I would go to if I was trying to find detailed, understandable, easy to digest instructions for performing a very specific set of steps that would break my things if I did it wrong.

    Like, seriously?

    Best of luck to those in this thread, though.

    Good evening,

    Unfortunately I bricked the system too. I have a clean nand backup but I don't have the proper boot0 and boot1.
    I did a biskey dump and was getting a but I don't seem to get everything back to work.
    Can someone please help me with creating a good keys.txt?
    I tried to do a lockpick within hekate but it's telling me the pkg2 isn't correct.
    Please help me on this matter?
    Thank you in advance.

    Regards sid

    So if you unbrick your switch following these guides you could get banned? Any way to factory reset it?

    Where did you get the proper keys.txt file?

    Even factory reset doesn't clear the logs.
    And yes, people have gotten banned from wiping logs. Nintendo's not actively banning people right now and hasn't been for like 1.5 years so it might be fine for a while until they decide to swing the banhammer again. I thought they'd do it with the release of Sword and Shield since it seemed like the perfect time, but they didn't, so who knows at this point if they'll even bother. Maybe they gave up deciding it wasn't doing anyone any good and that they would instead take people's money for NSO. But at some point they have to make an example to scare would-be pirates from hacking their Switch so they'll likely start mass banning again sooner or later. Surprisingly, they seemed to be more actively banning people on 3DS, although that was just those who were stupid/ignorant enough to use public headers on Gateway/Sky3DS, or play leaked games online early (apart from the first bans when Sun/Moon were leaked, that one was hard to see coming as they had never had a history of banning people until then)

    I suppose once that TX modchip releases, they might start the mass bannings to scare people away from buying one, as that is a whole new market of potential pirates that have previously not been able to hack their Switch and if they can scare even 5% away from buying one that means potentially millions of profit not lost.
    If they don't start mass bannings at that point, they lose their opportunity. Once those people have hacked their consoles, they are realistically never going to go back to stock. If you're interested enough in hacking your console to purchase a modchip and install it, you're going to use it. And if you run the risk of a ban anyway if they can somehow detect the chip no matter how careful you are, there's not much point in going back to stock, really.

    You can google yuzu keys and there's a GitHub repository with them.

    Can I just use my prod.keys that I got from the lockpick_rcm? Or maybe there are missing keys

    You can use the keys from Lockpick_RCM. For the keys file to work with ChoiDujour, you need to delete extraneous keys.

    So I am trying to use HacDiskMount to verify my BIS keys with the mounted rawnand, but each combination of tweak and cypto I have is not working

    NVM might be getting steps wrong here. Will edit with update

    Brief instructions...
    1) Dump all files in Dump To SD to SD card.

    Done.

    2) Install TegraRCMGUI

    Done.

    3) Get BIS keys. Use BISkeydump or launch Switchboot (in tools / info - dump all keys)#

    Done, have my BISkeys.txt file already

    4) Dump rawnand.bin or mount emmc using memloader

    Okay I can mount it using memloader.

    4) Restore console using "Use On PC" - "6.2.0 restore Files".

    So just restore from each file in the 6.2.0 using hacdiskmount?

    Follow manual Choidujour downgrade tutorial, but use these files in this archive.

    Confused about this comment since that tutorial requires raw nand files and these are not raw? Plus Choidujour gives me an error when I put the 6.2.0 restore files into the fw folder and use it:

    PS D:\backup\SWITCH\ChoiDujour110> .\ChoiDujour.exe 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
    file D:\backup\SWITCH\ChoiDujour110\fw\BCPKG2-1-Normal-Main.bin not a NCA, skipping
    file D:\backup\SWITCH\ChoiDujour110\fw\BCPKG2-2-Normal-Sub.bin not a NCA, skipping
    file D:\backup\SWITCH\ChoiDujour110\fw\BCPKG2-3-SafeMode-Main.bin not a NCA, skipping
    file D:\backup\SWITCH\ChoiDujour110\fw\BCPKG2-4-SafeMode-Sub.bin not a NCA, skipping
    Found 0 meta and 0 data NCAs in D:\backup\SWITCH\ChoiDujour110\fw
    System version NCA not found!


    5) Restore from file:

    BCPKG2-1-Normal-Main.bin
    BCPKG2-2-Normal-Sub.bin
    BCPKG2-3-SafeMode-Main.bin
    BCPKG2-4-SafeMode-Sub.bin


    5) Restore using BIS keys... Add your correct BIS key, CHECK ENTROPY...

    None of my BIS keys have the right entropy


    Also which folders do I use, the archive for restoring contains copies, there's a folder called "Unbrick_Your_Switch_iha2" within the archive with the same SD card and PC folders in it

    Haku33 does the trick I do it all the time

    I use youtube tutorials for certain things... when I first hacked my switch I used a youtube tutorial but sometimes the info can be misleading and wrong its better just use the guide but for deleting all CFW and going back to OFW I discovered Haku33 was the best I did this so many times and was not banned.

    So can hakku33 restore a bricked switch when you do not have a nand backup from when the switch was unbricked?

    Unfortunately no I was referring into going from CFW to OFW ... if your switch is bricked but it can be detected via RCM you may can save it but if it is bricked and no RCM detected then it is dead.
