My Switch is originally on firmware 5.1.0, and using SX OS and ChoiDujoirNX, I installed firmware 6.0.0 with exFat.

I restored my NAND backup (made using hekate, before I did any modifications) but after that, it won’t load either OFW or CFW. OFW, I’m stuck with a black screen. And CFW, a blue screen.

Checking the fuses info through hekate (Switch still goes into RCM/SX Menu, and I can load hekate without a problem), it says I’ve burnt 7 fuses — and iirc, 5.1.0 should only have 6 burnt fuses.

Is there any way to fix this, other than replacing the Switch/buying a new one? I don’t think sending this to Nintendo would help either? They’d send it back since it is tampered (tho it is still under warranty).
