Hi Guys,

I have a switch lite with Xecuter switch lite modchip installed.

SX OS boot.dat is 3.1.0 and OS is 11.01 I believe.

Everything has been working perfectly for months but the other day I was in tinfoil and it crashed (black screen) so I did a hard reboot and tried to get into OS but I just get a black screen regardless if I go into original firmware or custom (the SX OS boot menu still works)

I have tried deleting the files on the memory card bar the boot.dat but I get the same issue.

Do you guys have any idea what has happened and how I can fix it?

Thanks

I think SXOS only supports firmware 11.0.0 and not 11.0.1.. So I think you should switch to Atmosphere for your switch to work

choose one of these guides:

https://rentry.org/MarikoEmuNAND use this guide if you want to set up Atmosphere with Emunand

https://rentry.org/AtmosphereSysNAND use this guide if you want to set up Atmosphere with only Sysnand

If you don't know what to choose, I recommend doing the Emunand guide over the Sysnand :D

You have to downgrade to 11.0.0. SX is dead so may as well move on to Atmosphere.

Thanks for the help guys it is much appreciated.

I followed the guide to install Atmosphere but it failed on the last step with the error "Failed to init eMMC!" could this mean my eMMC died?

That would suck but if that is the case would it be fixable by replacing the eMMC chip? I can have this done if need be.

Thanks

Check to see if the SD card is fake or not.

Its definitely a legit card, I got it directly from sandisk and have been using it for over a year, the card works in other devices also

That doesn't answer the question nor help you solve the issue. The SD card could have been a fake all along and you're only just seeing the issue.

I understand your point, but the card is working in my PC and I also tested it in another switch and it still works so I am thinking its not that.

Can you check your SD card on your PC and see if it's exFAT or FAT32? if it's exFAT, can you try formatting it to FAT32 and do the steps on the guide again?
