    Well, you can't exactly fit a backup of your NAND into your NAND. Also, it would be nonsensical to backup the NAND onto your NAND. I mean, how would you access it?

    I used Hekate to launch ChoiDujour and updated my firmware to 5.1 from 5.0. It was successful but now I can no longer charge or send signal to HDMI. I get a green blinking light on the dock. The only way I can charge is if it's connected to computer, my PC detects the switch fine. I can boot fine and play backups without any issues. I don't know what to try and I don't want to make the situation worse.

    That sounds really weird. Which version of ChoiDujour did you use? The Manual install version or the HomeBrew version, ChoiDujourNX?

    You're probably better off asking the question here https://gbatemp.net/threads/choiduj...ller-homebrew-for-the-nintendo-switch.513416/ for ChoiDujourNX OR
    here https://gbatemp.net/threads/how-to-...nofficially-without-burning-any-fuses.507461/ for the manual version, ChoiDujour.

    Also, regardless of which guide you have followed, you should have a Nand backup as per following the instructions, so whatever is wrong should be fixable by restoring that Nand backup using Hekate. But definitely ask in 1 of the 2 threads I linked, rajkosto can likely help you out

    If auto-rcm is enabled and you ''power off' switch from os, is it safe to remove SD card at that point while back in rcm (before any payload sent), or should it be fully powered off by sending payload, and powering off through hekate first?

    This should teach you the basics from booting into RCM to how to send payloads via USB connection.

    This happens when you don't have an sd card normally. If you have, what's your hekate ini?

    I was able to make a backup just fine. I don't have anything hekate related on my SD though (?) The only thing I did was push the payload and make a backup. Nothing added to the SD card myself

    About to use Hekates Restore Nand option so that I can start using 2 different Nands, one for regular use online gaming and one for homeBrew and offline gaming only. Anything I need to know before I try to do a restore? for example, is this text up to date and what does the "10 second mandatory wait time" mean?

    "Restore eMMC RAW GPP (Dangerous!):
    Do not use that if you don't know what you are doing! No one is responsible for messing with your device.
    You have a 10 second mandatory wait time before letting you start restore by pressing POWER.
    This let's you restore your eMMC general purpose partition. If hekate find the /Backup/Restore/rawnand.bin it will restore it and verify it.
    If it does not find it, it does nothing.
    For now only exFAT is supported. No partial restoring."

    Also, seeing as my Switch is not bricked or anything, do I actually need to restore boot0/1 aswell?

    It is up to date and will always be. Everything that writes the emmc is considered dangerous by me.
    A full backup is boot0/1 and rawnand.bin. Boot0/1 have unknown data written to them in every boot. So..
    The text is to make sure you don't press that by mistake.

    Thanks, I'll try and take my chances for now. I don't intend to do this to often of course.

    Just to make sure that they are not skipped then:

    "This let's you restore your eMMC BOOT0 and BOOT1 partitions.
    It will only restore the files at /Backup/Restore/BOOT0 and /Backup/Restore/BOOT1."

    In this case "BOOT1" and "BOOT0" are not folders containing the boot files, but actually the boot files themselves, right?

    Yeah. Generally, I try to end folders with a "/" to distinguish them.
