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.

    lately I downloaded super mario galaxy for wii, but in the first phase, right in the first cutscene of the game, the game freezes in that part, with the image appearing but completely frozen. I already had this problem with pikmin 2 but in the end I couldn't fix the problem. Has anyone had this problem, and if so, did you find a solution?
