    A friend of mine told me that there's a new update for the Switch (which is 3.0.0) and as soon as it hits 95% the switch didn't received any signal from the internet. I moved closer to the router so I could try again and it failed to do so.

    I rebooted the console to then receive the error code: 2168-0002. I tried rebooting it, no dice.

    Then I hold the key combo to access Recovery Menu. And started the System Update again. When it finished, the console rebooted and now it hangs on the Nintendo Switch logo (Basically the HOME MENU doesn't boot). And if I try to access the Recovery Menu it stays on black screen. I guess I need to send it for a repair to Nintendo, but I wanted to ask here before I do so and see if there was some other way to fix it?

    UPDATE: Its doing the exact same thing again... If the problem persists, I will go visit my aunt so they can call Nintendo. (I suck at explaining stuff sometimes.)

    Do it respond to anything? Like putting on the joycons or even plugging in the power? Tried to dock it?

    I haven't tried using the dock, but when it hangs on the logo, both Joycons can connect and work properly, and when I plug it in, the charging indicator appears when its booting up.

    So odd, seems like something went corrupted during the update. Can you call Nintendo and see if they got a solution? I hardly believe they have to change any hardware in your Switch. At most (this sucks) is to format your NAND.

    And with that you lose your 200+ hours of BotW saves.

    I haven't called them yet since it happened a few hours go. I will give it a shot and call them tomorrow and see if they have a solution.

    My switch just acts like there's no update available, can get on eshop on 2.3 with no issue.
    Fine by me.

    Yeah... it freaking blows. They got to get some backup method implemented asap. I got no idea how Splatoon 2 will work with saves, but just imagine a big esports teams lose one or two members because of corrupted saves or whatever.

    Try to just turn it on and see if it runs out of battery if it makes any difference. Probably not but what the heck

    If that happened then Ninty isn't really good at testing new updates. I suggest waiting until a new update arrives and then using recovery to update to it.

    Never update unless you absolutely have to, that's my motto. Good luck with your system, I hope you don't wind up losing your saves.

    The thing is that I can't access the Recovery Menu at all, it hangs on a black screen.

    I updated it in order to add my friends from my Wii U to my Switch. I kinda don't care much about the save data. I only had FAST RMX installed, and a few demos.

    Also this update is actually a bigger update with an actual changelog. I will update to this version as well.

    Its fine. I just hope they can fix it. I don't care if I lose my save data since I don't have BOTW.
