My switch does this too it seems to goto sleep as soon as it finishes loading because of the long start time. I always thought it was because of the chip and mine is a Mariko switch

My Switch doesn't do this and it is a Mariko. Maybe your SD Card reader isn't seated properly? I think I remember this being a problem on unpatched units ages ago, iirc Hekate still has an option to check. If you just unplug the read and plug it back it it should fix it (assuming that is the problem).

Thanks your help, but i think it isnt sd reader problem..if i install nsp its very fast to copying..if its limited to 5 mb/s..it should be slow right? the boot is very slow because it takes almost 1 min for the blue blinking light on the chip to turn green and then show sx logo. My doubt is if its normal to take so much time to turn on the green light..i see many people saying that takes 5 - 10 seconds.. for me its 30 - 1 min...do u think its sth related to chip instalation or faulty chip? i payed someone to install it..im have weld skills

Could be bad solder job, yes. But you could try to reflash the chip, i think that would trigger the learning process again, maybe it helps.

I would test atmosphere to see if you are having a software or hardware issue.

I'm facing the same problem, it can actually take up to even 5 minutes. I don't usually turn off my switch lite because of that, Just sleep mode it instead. A lot of time have passed, did you solved it ?

How is your SD card formatted?
I'm pretty sure is FAT32 but it is showing as "Generic Hierarchical” ? Never saw this type of file before, strange lol. Anyway, I must be crazy or something, but I found out something interesting, at least, I tried it 2 times and worked the same. If I turn off my switch pressing the power button and then turning it off completely, and afterwards, after 5secs I turn it back on, If I connect the charger, the boot will start in about 30sec. I don't know if the charger is actually doing anything, I usually just let me switch in sleep mode for the sake of convenience, because of the time it took me. But surprisingly, in those 2 times in a row, I even timed the boot, it actually boot between 30 to 40 secs

Edit: I did it again, and took a screenshot of the timer when it booted

You checked to see if the SD card is legitimate or not?
