    Hello,

    So a coworker of mine put CFW on my Switch. Not entirely sure about the exact details, but it has Atmosphere, Goldleaf, and Kosmos stuff on it last I checked. If it helps, "nx-hbloader v2.2.0" was visible on the menu.

    Last night, I mistakenly removed the SD card thinking I shut down the Switch. It was in sleep mode and gave me an option to shut down when the card came out. I tapped on the shut down prompt and now the Switch wont turn back on. Could I have possibly bricked it? I haven't done anything on the Switch. It's a completely clean system that happens to have CFW on it, so it wasn't in the middle of doing anything important.

    The "Hold Power Button for 15/30 seconds" solution isnt working, and I've tried all the official solutions online. I've been seeing people mention "AutoRCM" or making sure a dongle is charged, but I'm not able to try that since I'm not the one that did the CFW stuff and my coworker is currently out sick haha.

    If anyone has any ideas of what I can do in the meantime, that'd be appreciated! I'm not TOO stressed about it since I do still have my "legit" Switch that I use 90% of the time. I just thought it'd be fun to have a CFW Switch to mess around with to see what it can do. I'd just hate to waste it and am hoping I didnt brick it.

    My guess it is stuck on AutoRCM, where you need to push a payload first before it will boot again. You got a black screen.

    Basically follow that guide, bearing in mind you already have the files on your SD card, and are entering RCM automatically so can skip bridging pins etc.

    Also remember to hold power down for 12 seconds to completely shut your Switch down first, then press power again to turn on into RCM.

    You may as well read the whole guide and skip using your friend from now on, it's easy.

    Have you ever turned it off before? You're for sure in autoRCM. You need to push a payload. It has to be "hacked" again every time you turn it off. It's not a cold boot solution. CFW goes away when you power down.
