    I tried to get Shofel2 running on the Switch without an SD card (original SD card got completely corrupted), and as soon as the coreboot loaded, darkness.

    Symptoms:
    • Switch not responding to long-presses for power button, tried 12-50 seconds
    • Running completely cold
    • Screen not lit up
    • RCM not responding
    • Factory reset doesn't do anything
    • Not powering on when charged
    Specs:
    • Very early model (only serial I have: XCW10009836111)
    • Firmware 8.1.0 for console, third-party JoyCons
    • Paint aggressively scraped off of metal railings

    My Switch has been sitting doing nothing for the past day, and it still won't turn on. I actually need help.

    Did you have autorcm activated ? Maybe it's only the battery and actually need to let it charge a very long time for being able to boot it up
    I'm a huge noob and this is probably not the solution but at this point you should try it, let it charge the whole night and try to go on rcm mode again

    edit : Nevermind it's probably not the case/solution at all since you got the problem as soon as you booted it up, I wish for you to get a solution

    I didn't enable AutoRCM. I know that.

    Also, I forgot to mention that plugging it in doesn't give any charging indicator, and that I did it while the Switch was at an extremely low battery.

    SD card contents are unrelated to entering RCM. Ensure that the console has charge and that you are entering RCM properly.
