    I'm not 100% sure on what you'll need to go about this, but that could very likely fix your problem if you know what firmware that backup was on, and your current fuse count. If you're sure the fuse count is 7, then that firmware will have to be 6.1.0 at the most to work. As a last attempt, you could try retrieving your PRODINFO and rebuilding your NAND for 6.1.0, again I'm not sure of what you'll need, just pointing in what I think is the best direction.

    Were you backing up or restoring from SX? Either way you should restore with Hekate, just charge your switch enough and Hekate should work even with a wrecked NAND.

    Just for future reference, but you really shouldn't have even attempted this without having your Switch plugged in to a power source. Even if it were at 100%, it's never advised. I'm almost certain every guide everywhere on every platform mentions ensuring your Switch is plugged in. This is a goof up of the highest degree.
