Hi

I have a switch with a hardware issue and it gets stuck when the switch logo shows up.
I can launch payloads like hekate and do backups with no issue whatsoever. but I can't launch any firmware like atmosphere or the original firmware.
And I have a second unpatched switch and I want to migrate all the save files and games and sd card from the broken switch to the working one.
Is there a way to do so?
I can make a full nand backup with no problem.

Edit:
Ok let me rephrase my question.
Is there a way to extract a save file from a nand backup so I could use it on a different switch?
Or can I use a nand backup and run it on a different switch as emunand?

Has anyone tried to help you fix it? You can use Checkpoint to backup the system saves, I would do this first. But maybe someone can help you fix it, what caused the problem in the first place?

It's a big issue and I can't fix it where I live

So My only options are extracting the save files somehow from a nand backup or I can access the nand through TegreRCMGUI and putting it on my new unpatched switch.
