    try holdingpower button for 30 sec so that the switch completely shuts down
    then try to push payload again
    If that doesnt work then it could be a corruption in the card so you can try to format the card and then use a fresh set of cfw files ( best to try this with a spare card if you have one)

    If possible do you have another microsd card you can test with? Max 16gb or such? I just wanna test so you can enter RCM.

    Weird that a retroarch crash would suddenly not make your system unable to boot back to cfw unless it's a sd card corruption. I hope this isn't a hardware issue like your sd reader failing.

    Try using a different sdcard, install the Kosmos package and try booting RCM.

    Since you downgraded I think that you dont have autorcm and have a fuse count mismatch

    I want to ask you a few things first -
    1. What cfw were you using?
    2. What is the current fw version of your switch?
    3. Do you have nand and boot0&1 backup?
