    Yes and yes.

    Rajkosto verified myPRODINFO and BOOT0/BOOT1. Keys were all correct. We now believe the switch is getting the orange screen (happened only once) and I just cant see the orange anymore.

    Guess I'm SOL.

    if your console's stuck on the bootlogo (switch2 ɴɪɴᴛᴇɴᴅᴏ SWITCH), one of these things are probably busted:
    - your PRODINFO. (did you run a bricker?)
    - your USER partition is unmountable. (If you resized it, are you sure you formatted it with the right BIS key?)
    - your SYSTEM partition is unmountable. (Did you corrupt something?)
    - your partition table is messed up.
    - if you're using Atmosphere: you're booting it with a badly-formatted SD card, or corrupt Atmosphere files on the SD card. (via SciresM)

    It means it is getting as far as loading BCT, package1/package2, and that's it. No titles load, not even fatal.
    If you have an RCM-vulnerable Switch, you may be able to recover this; if your Switch can't boot Fusee from RCM, you're out of luck, unfortunately.
    Try restoring from an eMMC backup. If you don't want to lose your data/progress, you can try restoring PRODINFO by itself, but that's a bit more of an advanced process.
    If you don't have any backups ..... you have a brick. Your data can probably be recovered, but that is a bit tedious.

    If your console is stuck on the Nintendo logo, you've likely corrupted one of the boot stages. You can restore the BCPKG2 partitions if you have a backup.

    It's stuck on Nintendo Logo.

    PRODINFO is fine (rajkosto confirmed).
    BOOT0/1 are fine (confirmed by shchmue)
    Formatted partitions all with Tested Good keys.
    Corrected Partition table.
    Its a brand new SD card.

    It boots RCM.
    Have tried restoring eMMC backup multiple times.
    I have tried restoriung partitions via Choi like 7 times now.

    I've literally tried everything. :(

    You're not putting BISKEYS where you shouldn't be are you.....only should be used for the Safe, System and User Partitions


    You also said you formatted partitions did you format using fat32 16k cluster with correct BISKEYS?

    I would suggest you check your BISKEYS against your partitions, make sure you haven't got BISKEYS entered for the bin package files. Sounds as though it's unable to read your partitions, maybe you put the wrong keys when you formatted or formatted the wrong FS

    Yes, very sure.

    Yes, Rajkosto also helped me format FAT32 16k.

    HacDiskMount says all keys match partitions, I’m not entering keys for the package files. I followed guide 100%.

    Hacdiskmount will only mount partitions with the biskey you formatted, if you formatted the wrong biskey then the switch wont be able to mount it even if you can

    Go on. When you say "formatted the wrong biskey", what do you mean. The word "formatted" is throwing me off.

    When you format a partition in hacdiskmount you must make sure you enter the correct key, mount and format.

    If you dont enter a key or the wrong key for the partition, the switch will attempt to access the partition using the correct key and fail

    This applys to the SAFE,SYSTEM and USER partitions

    I have replaced the switch.

    Great news, Best Buy still sells switches that are vulnerable to FG lol
