    Hi so im attempting to manually update my switch's firmware following this guide (https://switch.homebrew.guide/usingcfw/manualchoiupgrade) and im stuck on Step 4 where it tells me "In the command prompt, type “ChoiDujour.exe --keyset=keys.txt fw” without quotes". Instead of succesfully outputting the adjusted firmware files i am presented with this

    I've also edited the key files txt to only have a select few keys in it (saw this suggested elsewhere here). Tried edited and full keys file and no luck upload_2019-11-16_21-30-51.png

    <leave a space here in your key.txt>
    master_key_00 = xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
    master_key_01 = xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
    master_key_02 = xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
    master_key_03 = xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
    master_key_04 = xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
    header_key = xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
    aes_kek_generation_source = xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
    aes_key_generation_source = xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx8
    key_area_key_application_source = xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
    key_area_key_ocean_source = xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
    key_area_key_system_source = xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
    package2_key_source = xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
    <No space>

    Make sure there is a space at the first row of the text file, and all equals are aligned.

    If you are updating to Fw5.0 then master key is till _04; if you are updating to Fw6.0 then master key till_05 and so on.

    Hope this helps.

    Ill try this. I also made a post elsewhere about this issue and was informed that what im trying to do wont work bc im trying to use firmware 9.0.1 on the pc version and it doesnt support past 6.1. Is this true?

    I maybe wrong. Don't quote me.
    There seems to be no master key beyond 6 hence pc version is not going to work. You need the master key to rebuild the higher ofm boot and raw files.

    I am not sure of your situation. Theoretically, you will need to go below fm 6 then update fm to 9 using the non pc version.

    Bypassed this issue and fixed the bricked switch. Someone on another site was able to send me the output folder from step 4 since its not a console unique thing. From then on out the rest of the steps worked as intended until i got to the end to where it tells you to boot up the cfw. Ended up having to erase all save data but that was no where near a big issue. Was able to downgrade to 6.0 then upgrade to 8.0.1 and installed and ran a new game perfectly fine. I appreciate all of you for reaching out to help.
