Hey everyone,

I sent my switch in for repair. It had firmware 4.1 on it. They sent it back and it was firmware 9.1. Whatever. However, now I cant use SX OS (and atmosphere of course). Holding volume + plus power and it wont turn on. Remove the jig and press power, switch turns on. Repair is only 100 so for them to update the chip does not make any sense. I updated SX OS to 2.9.2 and nothing. Its like its blocked from turning on with volume +. Has anyone else sent their switch in for repair and had this happen? I removed the license keys from the sd to see if I could redo the license, doesnt turn on. Does Nintendo somehow patch old switches when you send them in? Anyone have any expereince? TIA!

Nintendo will always replace a hackable motherboard when they find one even if it does not need repairing. Bad luck.
