    I try'd the downgrade method form 7.0 to 6.2 followed all directions made sure all was right. After hours of retrying I noticed even thou I did a full Rawnand and boot0/1 backup. The date Created for my Rawnand was correct but the Date created for my Boot0/1 was very different would this be the reason that My switch legit does nothing except load into Rcm to Hekate or SXOS. I don't even get a Nintendo logo loop just a blank screen or rcm mode. DO i have any options or should i just accept buying a new switch. I also have another Rawnand backup that is 2gb parts i try'd to use the Joiner and i can only get half thru before it shuts down... Any help would be appreciated

    Did you make a NAND backup of your 7 FW beforehand? Do you have a NAND backup of an older FW version like 6.1 or even 5?

    I gues on earth.
    Rebuild your NAND by following the manual downgrade guide.
    Do you have a full backup of anything?

    I have a full Rawnand backup of my 6.2 that is joined. I also have an unjoined 7.0 that when I try to join using the script it cancels have way thru. but the Boot0/1 I think is wrong will a date created make an issue of the boot files.

    Well, do you have boot0/1 for the 6.2.0? That is kinda important. If not, your best bet is to rebuild it from here.

    If you know that it was made at the same time, why don't you try it?

    OP you are in good hands here. @Kubas_inko is quite knowledgeable in the matter.
    But just so you know: keep your 7 NAND backup handy and ready.
    Hope you get it sorted.

    I did, nothing but a black screen not even a charging icon when plugged in. I can get into Rcm mode thru Hekate and Sxos but nothing other then that

    @Zumoly That's a good point. Make a full backup right now (although you can't really screw it up even more).
    Only thing I can suggest (again) follow the guide to recreate your NAND.
    Also, try recovery/maintenance mode (probably won't work, but you should try everything).

    rawnand and boot0/1 (as always). Although it won't really help here, it is always a good idea if you somehow screw up even more.

    Just follow the guide and you'll be successful. I tried that today and it worked. After downgrading to 6.1.0 I installed via CNX 6.2.0. I created an emunand and updated the ofw. That would solution minimize the risk of a ban. You should disable your inet connection etc.

    And with guide I mean this: https://guide.sdsetup.com/#/manualchoidowngrade
