    Alright, so I have an updated 6.2 Switch. My friend has one that's on a lower firmware. If I backup his nand, factory reset, backup that nand, install the factory nand onto my switch will I run into any problems? I know about the stuff that makes it so I can't use sleep mode while on a firmware that's lower than the fuse count (I may have said that wrong but hopefully you get what I mean) and I don't really care about the sleep mode thing.

    On a related note, if it does work and I can do the 6.2 downgrade thing, will there be any telemetry data (I think it's called that) left from the temporary downgrade that the big N will be able to detect when I restore my nand? I'd assume it might do something to the fuses that leave data for them to detect.

    Do that and your switch won't boot.

    Regardless, just wait a 6.2 solution and do a full nand backup in the meantime.

    Cause if you did your idea without a backup, you are screwed.

    You "CAN NOT" do such a thing. NAND backups are console specific. You will brick your console if you restore a backup from another switch.

    You cant just take another switch's nand backup and flash it onto yours. You can only flash nand nand backups that you have backed up from your console. Doing something like this is an easy way to get your switch bricked.

    Just wait it out. I'm sure there will be a solution for 6.2 soon.

    I see. Thank you for you're help. I thought nands were universal and keys and whatnot were created from hardware :P
