    You make a keys.txt with the following quoted format without the bullet points and replace the X's with the actual values of the keys.

    Well if you're trying to use ChoiDujour, you can use the guide in this forum.

    I need help creating the keys.txt file. I just dont know how to do it. I paste the templet in the word.txt file and dont know what to replace the X's with what values.

    Like what does actual values even mean? sorry about so many questions I am just really lost.

    The Nintendo Switch keys are 32 character long values that contain random letters and numbers. The X's are so you have an idea of how long the key is supposed to be. There are also 32 X's which means if you find the actual value of a certain key, you can highlight the actual value of the key and replace an entire line of 32 X's with the key.

    Oh, I see. So I just use the templet, replace the Xs with the thier corresponding values? and are the key values the same for every firmware, excpet for the addition of the master keys or all the values different for each firmware?

    Yes just replace the X's. And all of the key values are the same except for the masterkeys which are added with every major firmware update.

    Oh thank you so much this clears up many things for me. I will give it a try and see how things go. But my original problem is very different. If its ok I would like to ask about it if this method doesnt work. :)

    I had the boot logo freeze issue before after using ChoiDuJourNX.. do you have nand backup? I tried several things and this is the only thing that worked. Restore the nand backup, backup your saves, enter maintenance mode, initialize system keeping user information, reboot , update again with du jour , this time it should work successfully then all you have to do is reboot and restore saves. Of course if you don't have a backup you're kind of screwed..

    Ya, I think I am screwed, like I dont have a NAND backup, but is it possible to do the same thing with someone else's NAND backup?

    I don't really know. I know using someone else's backup is a bad idea. The console-specific keys won't match and you won't be having a good time. I think somewhere along the line I heard you could use ChoiDujour PC to build a NAND image that can be flashed to the switch but that's all I know. I think that's what you were trying to do. It's also possible to order a nand and swap yours out I believe. Maybe you could get a bricked switch from eBay and swap the chips. Find one with a broken screen or something so you know the nand is still good
