    Heya I wanted to know if I could use the SX OS boot menu to somehow get out of a bootloop I got into because I accidentally removed my SD card while the switch was on.

    That sucks man. Were you doing any kind of emunand? Like running a newer firmware than was on nand?

    I gues on earth.
    That shouldn't cause bootloops. Try recovery mode (vol up + vol down + power).

    EmuNAND is not a thing yet right?

    Idk what they call it, but when you have say 3.0.0 on your nand, then you boot 5.1 somehow, that seemed like an emunand to me, but I'm sure the term wasn't correct.

    That's not EmuNAND. That's just bypassing the fuse check.

    Sounds like something got corrupted. Did you make a NAND backup? If the answer is no, you may need a new Switch.

    Then something went wrong, and you may have bricked the Switch beyond recovery.

    If it boots into RCM its not beyond recovery. Might need a donor nand to extract/replace stuff though

    Try holding power button for 30 secs then plugin power cable without SD card inserted.

    Ninty might have something to say about it! Even though other consoles post their firmware, Nintendo does not. End users are not supposed to have them at all.
