    My MicroSD slot has stopped working. I want to send my Switch in for repairs, but I have AutoRCM on and I upgraded to 6.0 from 3.0 with ChoiDujourNX, and I don't want to send in the Switch without restoring my clean NAND backup. The problem being, I don't have a MicroSD card slot with which to restore my backup. Is there any way to push a backup through USB from my PC?

    Bonus Round: Does anybody have a guess as to how much I can expect to pay for repairs? If it's more than like $30, I might just buy a replacement SD board and try a self repair.

    No, to my knowledge there is no way to send it via USB

    Also the price depends. Are you under warranty?

    I don't think I'm under warranty anymore. I got the Switch on eBay, so I don't know the original sale date. And I did open the Switch up to try to reseat the MicroSD card board (to no avail), and I stripped a screw like an idiot, so they'll be able to figure out I opened it anyway.

    But if there is no way to clean my NAND anyway, I might have to pick up a board online and replace it myself.

    I also stripped a screw before sending it, they repaired it just fine

    You should be able to call Nintendo support, they will ask for your serial number, so have that ready

    Just buy a new sd card socket off ebay and replace it. It would literally take 5 minutes and the skill set of a 5 year old. Remove the back cover and the sd slot board is right there.it snaps in and out.

    I believe that nontendo update your device so in all case you will get your switch back updated with fuse burnt
    What I want to say is that if it is true, just update yourself to 6.0.1 (it will burn fuse and remove autoRCM)

    This is the answer. They cost basically nothing and are dead simple to replace. You don't even have to take off the foil plate, just need a triwing and a phillips.

    Then do what the other people above me are saying and just buy a new card reader part. It's a solderless job to replace it (just unplug the old one and plug in the new one), and it should cost less than $10

    Here's one on Aliexpress (although it'll take longer to ship if you order from there).

    Is the problem only the sd card reader?
