    I'm not too sure. I checked the folder where my backup is nd the USER file isn't there, I don't think it saved.

    It's not turning on. I'm quite sure it's a dead Switch.

    I mean maybe you didn't have enough battery when restoring..it's possible and not necessarily a brick if it's just a black screen try connecting it to usb and see if you hear a sound indicating a connection

    I had about 70% of battery on my Switch.
    Boot 1/0 and everything else but USER was restored. USER couldn't be found as it wasn't in the folder, I'm not sure why.
    I'm quite sure this is a hard brick.

    not gonna pretend like I know but i'm currently restoring my backup and believe I read if the current fw doesn't match with backup fw you need to update to current fw (6.2 being the latest working cfw) with Nujudour...I hope I don't run into your problem but if I do I will be needing help too.

    USER isn't essential, it just contains games, save data, user info and the like.

    How do you use hekate to chainboot I was just using SX os previously. Is this a way to restore my 6.2 NAND using the other tool rather than SX OS ?

    Have managed to restore the 7.0 NAND backup and resurrect the console but really want to go back down to 6.2.

    You let your GF use your Switch ? You should turn WIFI off and airplane on and you should have told her not to update it.

    You dont have any backups ? Then you are screw! You will have to wait until 7.0 CFW is coming. Since 7.0 is already cracked. Next time, tell her not to update and turn wifi off/Airplane mode on.

    I am glad that I dont let anybody touch mine. None.

    Oh, I see I'm confused on why my Switch won't turn on anymore, it did turn on once, it was 6.2.

    I've kind of fixed my Switch, I formatted my SD card to FAT32 and I was able to access CFW but I can no longer have my Switch on without CFW.

    Thank you so much! I accidentally updated (entirely my fault, no "my gerbil did it" excuse) and successfully followed the guide. My only problem is that none of my previously installed games show up now. In Goldleaf, my tickets all say "Unknown Title". Is there anything I can do to restore my games?

    You need to do the old downgrade method using the original Choidujour (pc version) or wait for 7.0 support (soon)

    Google switch master keys

    If your fuses are burnt then you will need to wait for hekate/cfw to be updated to support 7.0 if you want both cfw and ofw

    did you use the latest reinx.bin file?

    Reinstall is the only thing sadly

    Thanks again! I'll get to reinstalling. Do I delete the old games from the SD card, and, if so, where are they on the SD card?
