Hi :cry:

I destroyed Horizon OS on my Nintendo switch. I tried to update my switch with choidojournx to 9.0.0. I know it was a bad idea but I had to do it, because I'm not very patient but now I regret it. Anyway now when I try to boot Horizon OS Hekate says "failed to apply nosigcheck"and if I try to boot stock firmware it will stuck at a blackscreen. I mounted the switch emmc to my comuter with hacdiscmount but the files at the System Partition dont look like they're corrupted or somehow else broken. Can you please help me to unbrick my switch?

Why not disable nosigcheck first and see if it gives a new error?

Damn you running windows 98?
its windows 7 by the looks of it (from the back button), but with the classic windows style

but iirc you can rebuild your nand as long as you didn't mess up your TSEC keys and stuff, afaik ChoiDujourNX doesn't do anything to mess with the console unique stuff, so you should be good.

No it's Windows 10 (3D Objects shortcut and win10 icons), with Windows 7 style for back button and stuff and windows 98 theme for everything else...

did you update your cfw files and sigpatches?
Yes I use the latest komsos sd files

I already tried to boot stock Firmware which should load horizon OS without nosigcheck

Thx but how can I rebuild my nand? and is there a way to recover my save data? I also have a very old nand backup with Firmware 3.0.1. I did it bevore hacking the switch at all but I'm scared to restore it, because I dont want to accidently repair boot0 and boot. I still have Autorcm on and 4 burnt fuses.

lol we should stop this
I mean... You bumped a thread 4 months old.
However, to install Arm9LoaderHax on your switch's nandnand, you need to brick your HorizonFW approximately 32 times, then unbrick it 3 and then install a Windows Update on your c:\ drive.

tf.. you´re right. I didn´t notice that its that old. I thought it was a new one because it was featured on front page...

Possible, that's why it would be preferable if bumps wouldn't be taken into account on the front page ;)

Yes i'm a time traveler. I got to the past, just to say that i will be bumped in the future.

Do not forget to unzip the winrar in the switch folder, would be useful to restore your nandnand once you put a pipe into it ;)
