    Well, I've been watching Fusee Gelee tutorials, and I see that not all console models are compatible, so I ask, if I use an internal chip, like hardmod (Trinket M0, Gemma M0, ItsyBitsy M0 Express), I could load homebrew applications with higher firmware?

    I gues on earth.
    FW does not matter. Ipatches matter. Those are the bootrom patches, which make switches unhackable (publicly at the moment).
    You can try these websites to check whether or not your switch is hackable.

    Trinket is used just to streamline the process, so that you don't have to use PC or phone or dongle.

    No one stated there would be a modchip for "new switches". Do you have a source on this?

    I did "unbricked" my switch with trinket m0.
    Only way I can is boot up ubuntu and Lakka.

    Right now, I am attempting to boot up the emunand of nand from my other switch.

    I think new switches will get mod chip to make them hackable.

    I had a dream that I was comparing two switches and saw that I could bypass something on patched switch. I soldered something and I got atmosphere running on patched switch.

    My switch is not patched, only bricked for downgrade 8.0.0 to 7.0.1

    It can be revived via ubuntu or lakka
    Lakka is more fun :)

    my switch was bricked via downgrade by ebay seller.

    Follow ubuntu or Lakka guide.
    you need RCM and hekate working on the bricked switch.

    I think I will have Android working on my bricked switch.

    It isn't "bricked", it is just an incorrect fusee count that is stopping it from booting. Put it into RCM and then push atmosphere to it. Update it back to 8.0.0, just like how you downgraded it, so to match the Fusee count.
    After doing this you should be able to boot back into HOS and be able to use your switch normally.

    I would recommend making a nand backup with hekate first, just to avoid any actual bricks. ;) (With a nand backup it is almost impossible to brick your switch, unless you break it hardware-wise! :D)

    The problem is that it does not start, it remains black and I gave it the option to start Original Firmware and it continues on a black screen, the Nintendo logo appears, it is removed and it remains black

    what format is the sd card if its exfat then you may updated without the exfat update. hekate has the driver so it can read it no matter what but to use the HS with exfat it needs the update.

    without it. it will show the Nintendo logo then black screen so make sure you got latest atmos version too and hekate you can use kosmos v13.0.1 otherwise

    Download

    1, download the zip file i provided
    2. clear the sd card of all files expect you can leave lakka,ubuntu, homebrew apps in switch folder that not included in kosmos zip file
    3, then extract the files in the zip folder to sd card root
    4. pop it back in switch and boot into cfw or stock in sysnand or emummc if its not ban switch you may want to setup emummc for cfw stuff but lets just see if it will boot
    5,. delete the Nintendo folder as well will clear it and the switch will recreate it but all installed games would be deleted but save data is in the nand so thats safe from this

    so how it goes and do u know how to setup emummc? but i get it unbricked before worry about this

    you could try pushing hekate to another persons switch and make an emunand backup, but they would have to have the same fw as you then take the backup and push it to your switch. Or you could reformat your sd card and redo the exploit all over again (this fixed my switch and I had exact same problem try this first though)
    Sometimes this happens because of a corrupt sd card (I know your using fat32 but its still possible)

    Are you sure you had the same problem? I made downgrade from 8.0 to 7.0.1 (and had already blown fuses, so I had 9)
