I had the Switch for a year when I decided to hack it and get SXOS installed. 2 days after doing the process I suddenly get the orange screen. I tried everything I could software wise but nothing worked, so I sent it to maintenance. The guy who fixed it told me that the NAND chip was the problem and he had to substitute it, so now I won't be able to use the same SXOS license to hack it.
My question is: Does that make any sense? Will I need to buy another SXOS license after using the old one for only 2 days?

Okay, I get it.
The weird thing is that not even a factory reset was done apparently, all my NAND games and accounts are still there. I don't get why it would think it's a entirely different console, but I'm a noob anyways. Thank you very much.

How are people getting hardware issues with their switch? Are the first edition switches that susceptible to hardware failures? I haven't had a single issue but threads like this make me afraid my switch is going to give out

I doubt they will do anything, other than telling you to get another license. I recall there had been posts on their forum from users that had their switch repaired or replaced by Nintendo.
I know but he can always try, maybe if he writes a good email and the guy who reads it is in a good mood then they might help him

Naw the guy who reads it (@garyopa as above) gives no fucks, he just wants your money. He's also happy to take the weekend off while all his customers are bricking. What a nice dude.
