    Hi,
    yesterday, i was normally adding new games to sd card (fully poweroffed switch, removed sd card to pc and moved new game to in, than insert back to switch)
    I have no autorcm, cuz i jig only once per 2-3 months.
    Well i did everything normally without problems, but when i want to go to rcm mode to payload sx os, tegrarcm didnt recognized RCM mode.
    Switch was at 100% battery before its been power offed.

    now, switch cant load even OFW, i cant do anything with that switch now. 15 sec hold powerbutton didnt helped me. What can i do more ? I have been 24 hours in dock and still same.

    Please help me, im actually in panic rn and testing everything

    Force reboot it by pressing the power button for like 30 seconds.

    Because it probably wasn't in RCM mode, also if the connection between the computer and switch is no good, it won't pick it up, good idea to use a dongle or modchip.

    Sounds like your "15 second powerbutton" didn't work. I've ran into 2 rare instances like yours where disconnecting and reconnecting the battery was all that was needed. Luckily the Switch is really easy to disassemble should this happen again in the future, at least to that level.

    Hi to all. I tried in the Nintendo Switch downgrade, but now is brick. Not responding to anything, rcm or press power button + volume up. I used the Nevercholt Tech guide, FW 9.0 to 8.1.0.

    You people don't learn, don't go around downgrading your NAND.

    No it is not completely bricked, just that you might have to rebuild your NAND, enter RCM mode and sent Hekate as your payload and see what happen.

    But now I can't go into rcm, I can't do anything, nothing starts. I even have an rcm loader and nothing. Do I have to wait for some time?

    Look like you messed up your NAND , should never follow any youtube video, ChoidujourNX flashing a lower firmware isn't downgrade. You might have to rebuild if you can't boot into Horizon OS if you unit actually turn on, you should figure that out first.

    4 hours of stress and I was able to run rcm, now I'm trying to restore a backup, luckily I got it from the beginning of switch hacking, maybe it will work. BTW, this version 9.0.1 works terribly in some applications, the buttons for example edizon, checkpoint do not work at all. in 8.1.0 there was no problem

    You need to stay off YouTube and lurk around here more. Everybody already knew this, you could have saved yourself a lot of trouble.

    Details can be found on Atmosphere's release page:
    https://github.com/Atmosphere-NX/Atmosphere/releases/tag/0.9.4

    Basically, 9.x made changes to how inputs worked. Homebrew needs to be re-compiled using the latest version of libnx in order to fix the button issue. The latest version of Atmosphere includes a temporary mitm module to get homebrew to work without being re-compiled, but I don't think SX OS has any such module.

    So either switch to Atmosphere or download the latest version of any homebrew you use. If you're already on the latest version and they still haven't released a newer version, you can either recompile it yourself if you know how, or just wait until they do eventually update it.
