    He downgraded from FW 6.2 to FW 6.1 by restoring his boot0/boot1 backup on his system NAND. He can theoretically boot CFW via Hekate but for whatever reason it is not working for him.

    You could try updating back to FW 6.2 using ChoiDujourNX as @bodefuceta suggested earlier.

    Just restore nand back to 6.1 then. Use rcm to the boot into 6.1 then update to 6.2 what's the problem?

    The problem is that he burned fuses. Did you even bother to read the rest of the thread?

    I know it doesnt help now, but you should have made a backup of the "current state" of the console before you tried to do anything like that

    I burnt fuses restored to 6.1 and updated back to 6.2 when atmosphere was updated worked fine.

    Sorry if I came off as snippy. OP already tried to boot CFW via Hekate after he restored his boot0/boot1 backup that was on FW 6.1. Obviously he can't boot normally as he downgraded from FW 6.2. His only hope now is updating back to FW 6.2 using ChoiDujourNX and then booting Atmosphere.

    Agreed. But all is not lost yet. He can still boot into Hekate.

    Isnt ChoiDujourNX a hombrew app? If it is I cant use it since I cant get into the switch. But there is a non hombrew app right?

    Does regular ChoiDujour support 6.2?
    Maybe he can rebuild B0/1 and rawnand using Choi (not NX)

    PC app yes

    ChoiDujourNX is on the Switch. ChoiDujour is on the computer.

    Perhaps document the steps you try OP.
    Then if it works, it can help someone else, if it doesnt we can try to come up with different ideas

    Oh I overlooked that. ChoiDujourNX is the homebrew app, and regular ChoiDujour is a PC app.

    or, hypothetically, if someone just very recently bought a new one they could put the "not working for no reason" one back in the box and return it. Long as they dont check serial #s that person would have a very happy day.

    Besides being really slimy, no, that won't work. Newer Switches do not accept RCM payloads, while the OP's Switch does.

    So if i understood you correctly, you have Boot0/1 from 6.1 and sysnand 6.2 and you're unable to restore 6.1 sysnand.

    I would recommend you try and restore your rawnand.bin 6.1 using Hekate 3.2, once that's done, you should be able to boot cfw, you can run choixdujournx to update firmware to 6.2 turning on autorcm, or stay on 6.1 but you can't put your system in sleep mode anymore.

    Anyways start by restoring using Hekate 3.2, if you tried 4.x and got an error (that's what i understood from what i read above).

    Hope that helps,

    I looked at Best buy a few days ago and 1/3 of them had the old fw
