    Title.

    I can turn it on to the Nintendo Screen, but thats it. Also, I don't think its in AutoRCM, because I managed to uninstall AutoRCM with the little battery my switch had left, and entered OFW. I have been waiting for about an hour but with no results. Though, I can see the little charger icon in the top left corner.

    I can get into SX OS with the adapter that comes with it, so I'd assume I could get into Hekate

    Does it also get stuck at that screen if you start it using custom firmware

    Getting stuck at the Nintendo logo is sadly a sign of a hardbricked Switch. There's a specific chip on the board that goes bad, you can get replacement chips and solder one on but it's not easy.

    It doesn't hang at the Nintendo screen, it gets to the dead battery screen, but it wont charge. Sorry for not clarifying.

    Ah, I see.
    Maybe the charger is faulty? Have you tried with another one? (or even just plugging it directly into a PC to charge)

    I'm using a regular USB C charger, so it might be that (lost the default one). Might just either look for it more carefully or just buy a new charger. Though the charging icon appears when I plug it in.

    Are you sure you uninstalled RCM? Sitting on the charging screen is exactly what happens when the battery is too low to start horizon, if it doesn't get past that screen with the charger plugged in after 20 min then it's a problem (try a different charger)

    You can boot into Hekate and it will have a battery charging status at the bottom of the Hekate menu, and it updates every time you press a button so you can see if it is actually charging (it will be really slow in RCM)

    Should be. Said operation successful after choosing uninstall AutoRCM. Booting into Hekate shows it charging at 43 mA. I'm also not really against charging it all night.

    If you haven't solved it later I'll let my switch die in RCM and see if the official charger gives more mA just incase your one is extra slow

    I can get to the Nintendo screen. I also left it charging for more than 20 mins before (wasn't timing) and with no result.
