    I recently redownloaded Skyrim via HGBshop and unfortunately, it's stuck infinitely displaying the switch splash-screen with joycons in the lower right corner. Cannot quit to home using the home button - console hangs on a black screen. The only way to get the switch working again is hard reset by holding the power button and resetting everything. I'm running the latest SXOS and Nintendo Switch firmware.

    Your SD Card is a knock off.

    I have no reason to think that - firstly this is the only game that does that. Secondly, I have purchased the card from one of the major retailers in my country and paid full price for it. It's a SanDisk Ultra 400GB Micro SDXC UHS-I Card

    Bethesda considers that a 'feature' in most of their games. : D

    Seriously though, Have you tried a copy from another source to make sure that it isn't a messed up copy that was downloaded? Also, you are running a clean copy and aren't trying to load mods right away? I had an issue once with a Skyrim mod for Switch that gave me a freeze similar to what you are describing.

    Get it from another source, then.
    What Athmosphere modules are you running?
    Disable them one by one to to see if one of them is messing with the game and find the culprit.

    I'm running SXOS, no atmosphere modules at all. Downloaded games from different sources. None works. What's worse, I tried to launch the game from friend's physical cart and I get the same results. I also deleted all the save files and tried again. Same result.

    There might be a ticket that needs to be uninstalled. Use Tinfoil or something. There's a topic around here that explains further.

    Besides that, I cannot help you, unless a willing and sincere hug helps.

    Does it?

    ive just noticed the same issue, no my sd card is not a knock off and my game is what i already had stored and used to work.

    only difference is that i have since updated to latest nintendo firmware and sx os.

    when i try boot it will stick on the switch logo and forced to power down, when the power options come up im unable to select power or reset so have to hold power until it shuts down.

    I have exactly the same problem as you. The only thing I managed to do is to buy a physical copy of Skyrim and run it without the SXOS.

    My Skyrim .xci was crashing my switch at startup with TXOS among other games.

    I noticed it happened only for games with updates installed. I deleted the updates and used Tinfoil to reinstall them and the games all worked that used to crash. Including Skyrim. Possible fix for you?

    I can´t run the game without the update, it always ask me to download the update. How do you skip that?

    Triplayer did this to my switch. Had to remove it to play some of my games.
