    Before doing anything I'd make a full copy of your current NAND. It won't be clean, but if you mess up restoring your partial backup at least you won't be bricked since you can just restore that.

    ALWAYS ALWAYS BACKUP UP FIRST BOYS AND GIRLS

    Backup

    Goldleaf
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/goldleaf-a-nintendo-switch-multipurpose-homebrew-tool.527578/

    Fusecount
    https://switchbrew.org/wiki/Fuses

    ChoidujourNX/briccmii
    https://switchtools.sshnuke.net/


    i HAVE A IDEA THIS WILL WORK

    BACKUP
    backup your switch and biskeys with my guide.

    Download GoldLeaf and
    place the goldleaf.nro on your sd card
    Load CFW on your switch with preferred method,
    Open the homebrew menu and launch goldleaf

    And remove all your tickets from machine...


    Then

    Find your fuse count by using the briccmii payload (Do not use any options just restart after you get your fuse count

    Download ChoidujourNX.nro place on your sd card, root of sd is fine

    Download the system update files matching your fuse count
    -You can find the switch update files on the xbin ftp your have to google that...

    Extract the contents of the update.zip that matches your fuse count that you acquired from xbin

    to a folder on your sd card.. Name for example System Update XX

    Load CFW on your switch with preferred method,
    Open the homebrew menu and launch ChoidujourNX

    Select your system update folder you placed on the sd card, and then click choose
    [​IMG]

    Once you chosen the folder Your be greated with this screen
    [​IMG]
    Select Exfat then click select firmware

    Your then be greated with this screen
    [​IMG]
    Your options here do what you want to do to wipe the switch clean..

    Select System Initialize so its ticked..

    Make sure prevent fuse burn is unticked also...

    -(this disables autorcm make sure you chose the correct system files that match your fuse count or your burn fuses)


    Then hit start installation Once this is done, Reboot

    if you followed all the steps correctly and with a bit of common sence your switch is now non modded and clean.

    Do we know what the USER partition is fully used for? I’ve seen other guides saying to remove all files inside the USER folders & remove everything in SYSTEM\save\*.* except 8000000000000120.

    Ended up dumping my tainted USER partition, compiled all partitions into a rawnand.bin, mounting the rawnand with HacDiskMount, formatting the USER partition with GUI format & restoring the rawnand.bin.


    So far that seems to have done the trick!

    This was my other suggestion, i have done this with you ? or did i do this remote with another member ? heck i forget,

    Did all biskey and entropy pass in hacdiskmount ?
    You may need to use gpt restore payload on the switch still...


    But good luck to you

    Yup, once i dumped the biskeys i made sure hacdiskmount passed entropy before doing anything else.

    The switch seems to be booting fine into OFW without any issues after restore.

    Thanks everyone for the help!

    @Canna Wouldn't this still have the logs that Nintendo could see?
    The reason I am asking is because I am in a similar situation I only made a backup of the EMMC SYS partition (which was the first day my switch was opened) that has never been online and I would like to restore so i can play online with OFW.

    you can have a blank user partition and the switch will still load..

    just have to do a factory reset or reinitialize the system.
