    You can just go straight to the new firmware version. Atmosphere supports 7.0.X so yee and yeah, just don't disable autorcm

    last question: will i have sleep mode problemss because i'll have 8 fuses burned but 7.0 required 9 fuses or not because booting with autorcm prevent fuse checks?

    if you're booting with hekate + chainloading sleep mode should be fine, you won't be able to boot ofw though, only cfw

    Hello Guys,

    I am not a total noob, but still want to be safe, so not to brick my sons Switch.

    I have successfully installed atmosphere on my Switch (it was on 7.0 when I bought it (used)). But since atmosphere is not well working with goldleaf or other installers and i can not install any nsp, i want to downgrade from 7.0.1 to 6.0, so I can update to 6.2 with ReiNX.

    Am I right to just download Firmware 6.0 and then install it with ChoidujourNX?

    1) MAKE A NAND AND Boot0/1 Backup

    2) Use Checkpoint to backup saves

    3) Use ChoidujourNX to install 6.2, make sure you choose system initialisation

    4) Use the latest files from the reinx guide

    5) Restore saves in with checkpoint

    Message me or here in the reinx discord if you need help

    I know, even for competent members of the scene I still stress it

    Did you backup the boot files as well?

    I backed up these two:

    eMMC BOOT0/1
    eMMC RAW GPP

    How do you guys get your MicroSD Card from the switch and do not have to push a Payload via PC?

    Everytime I pull the MicroSD Card out from the switch, i get the info that it will shut down (it goes to rcm) and i have to push a payload to boot it again.

    is there a workaround?

    FTP or power off the switch. You can take the sd card in and out in RCM

    restoring backup is safer in terms of ban, if you dont care about ban then use wifi

    Hi,
    Successfully restored by 6.1 nand backup and was able to boot in cfw and then used choiNX to install 6.2 which was the firmware I was on before my son updated the switch to 7.0.
    Problem I have no is that I cannot boot in SXOS. I can boot into Hekate but I don't know how to boot into SXSO from there.
    If I try to boot into the usual way, using the dongle and jig, I just get black screen.
    The boot.dat file is on the SD card and the dongle is fully charged.
    Any ideas what I am doing wrong?
    Thanks.

    sysnand has been updated, downgrade again to 6.1/6.2 using the backup and setup emunand which can be updated using the latest sxos

    I never used emunand. My switch was running 6.2 before the accidentally update to 7.0. No emunand.
    The only backup I had was a 6.1 version I took just before I added to 6.2 using Choi.
    The steps I took were:
    Booted in Hekate 4.2 (which was the version I was running when I took the backup)
    Restored boot
    Restored rawnand
    Enabled autocrm in hekate
    Launched CFW in hekate, which booted in atmosphere from the looks of it. I must have had atmosphere files on my SD card.
    From there I installed 6.2 exfat (which is how I originally updated from 6.1) via choi then rebooted
    I can get in hekate but can't boot in SXOS and CFW isn't working either.
    Tried with Hekate 4.2, 4.6 & 4.8

    UPDATE - I got it working by downloading SXOS Loader 1.0 and putting the payload.bin into the payload folder of the Hekate bootloader folder on my SD card. Then booted in Hekate, launch, payload and selected the payload.bin file I copied. Tested a copy of XCI and NSP games and they worked fine. Phew.
