    hey, thanks for the donwgrade tutorial, i succesfully downgraded hte switch to 6.2 , i had only resotred the boot0/1 and system partion (i dont have bkp for user partion ) the switch booted fine into cfw but when the consol goes into sleep mod im stuck there i tried to use hekate (copied the bootloader folder and injected the hekate payload added cfw payload too in bootloader/payload ...) but i think im missing somthing ... any idea ?
    thanks in advance ^^!

    Use latest hekate, if using reinx make sure reinx is the latest payload (if chaninloading through hekate update that) make sure it isn't on the sd root.

    Same with atmo

    okay, hekate 4.6 is the latest, what you need to do is update the fusee-primary.bin in that location and the fusee secondary on the root of your sd card

    if that doesn't work, try kosmos

    how long does it normally take to what?

    run? Install a game? Be updated?

    You need to be a little more specific lol

    Hi,

    what is the exact reason for not recommending it?

    Possible brick? Possible ban if used connected to net?

    No possibility to go back to official horizon once downgraded?

    thanks

    It is complex with a high chance of bricking (possibly permanent) if you do it wrong. running CFW triggers a ban flag if you aren't careful, even if you revert to stock, the ban flag is still there


    those are just the hashes, not the actual key, we can't do anything with the hash

    Downgrading using choidujour from 7 to 6.1 works fine, there's no reason not to do it. Using a nand backup instead is easier sure. But choidujour isn't complicated. Rajkosto updated biskeydump now for v7.
    I restored from 7 to 6.1 with no issues as I was curious then updated to 6.2 again with choidujournx.

    Still a lot of people out there using cfw without a clue how the switch works on a fundamental level.

    Of course you can restore a nand, if you're in RCM.

    You see compare choidujour to placing files on sd card and pressing a few button on the switch once you've launched hekate, in comparison it's complicated

    The only issue is if you don't have your biskeys. Wrong, flat out wrong, people skim over stuff and follow it without direction, they do this with the text guides same with video guides, that's why so many consoles ended up bricked, even when show what to do.

    It is possible to downgrade without first having your biskeys (I know cause I've done it) it's even more complicated than simply downgrading

    you are overestimating people, ergo why it's suggested to restore with a full nand backup or just wait for 7.0 support

    How would you mount your partitions and write to them without BISKEYS?

    back before biskeydump was updated you could do boot0/1 which allowed you to boot far enough to get biskeys then continue with the other steps

    Okay that makes sense. Would using etcher be enough? Or would you need a boot0/1 restore?
