    couple days ago i recieved sx pro i used it like once and i got my sd card otherday
    it is sdxc so switch didn't read it and it said it needs update so i was scared to update cuz of being banned by goin online
    so i searched it.
    found this video:
    at the hacdiskmount part i used a wrong .xci game to patch after i restored the bins i just unplugged the usb cable
    tried to turn on i didn't turn on when i plug the switch to pc it makes a "bip" noise but i can't put it to rcm mode or anything
    is there any solution for this? or should i just trash the switch


    and the hacdiskmount logs:

    In your PC, right click in the modified dump, properties and check if it is 0 bytes. If it isnt, flash it again. If it is, flash the original one and your switch will boot again.

    PS: The log says that you've flashed something and 20s later, something with 0 bytes.

    I that case, i don't know how to help you, wait for someone else... You don't have a NAND backup, right?
