So recently while in atmosphere my younger brother accidently downloaded a firmware update, resulting in the "Unable to identify package1" screen. After using recovery mode to find out that the firmware version was 11.0.1 . I read online that this is an update error, so I updated Atmosphere to 1.2.2, hekate to 5.6.5, and nothing changes. I then installed the "sigpatches". Now it blackscreens after the hekate splash.
Can someone help me? I use RCMloader OneB to inject payloads. Thanks in advance.

You mean I have to replace the payload.bin file with the fusee.bin file from the release?
That, or the Hekate payload if you need to boot Hekate. Don't forget to rename. You could also install both payloads on different slots on your RCMloader ONE.

Now, using fusee, I blackscreen after the second atmosphere logo. The switch is unresponsive.
Edit: nvm it is responsive just had to restart. still, blackscreen after second atmosphere logo.
Edit2: using hekate to launch sysmmc results in blackscreen after second atmosphere logo but the light on rcmloader is on.
Edit3: and now I don't know how to shut it off

To shut off the Switch, press and hold the power button for a good 15-20 seconds (time it). In your situation, if you're not sure what happened with the update process and why it's not properly booting now, you should consider to restore your NAND backup, assuming you made one before hacking the Switch. Or if you're on emuNAND, just delete it and make a new one.
