    Hold power button for 12 seconds to completely turn off.

    Leave Switch for a couple of minutes.

    Turn back on and put sxpro back in.

    Repeat until it turns back on, it will eventually.

    The crash couldve corrupted the sd card, especially if exfat. Try a fat32 sd card with nothing but boot.dat on it.

    Charge it for 20min or more and it'll work

    But wouldn’t it corrupt my license or no

    you are in autorcm, the switch be always on black screen even when it is not fully off
    hold power for 12s then try power on with dongle, otherwise hold power for 12s then charge the Switch for an hour or 2 then try again

    Wow, i would think leaving it in the toilet would have completely killed it, all that water and such filling the toilet.

    Where the buffalo roam.
    Have you ever heard of a run-on sentence?

    It's pretty random so maybe not. The best way to see is to either put a different card in with a fresh copy of boot.dat and your license, or reformat the existing card. You said it's hanging on the SX boot logo, what happens if you hold the volume button while powering on to get into the SX options?
