    Without this file or a nand backup is impossible to recover this switch. You can use it to lauch lakka o any other linux distro but not the original system.

    So what if the file belonging to the switch I've installed backup works well?

    So if you have this file, do you write what steps?

    Do you have the biskeys for the console backup you used? as well as your own biskeys?

    If you do there is a very small chance... I'm talking like 1 in 14,000,605 percent chance, so not good odds..

    In short:

    - OP does not have any backups from his original NAND.
    - OP flashed the NAND of a different Switch to his own Switch.
    - OP's Switch is 100% bricked and unrecoverable.

    If OP has their biskeys and different switch biskeys there is a slim chance.... maybe...

    From what I understand he doesn't have any kind of backup from his original NAND. No biskeys, no boot0/1, no rawnand, nothing.

    Yes, the console has its own original biskeys.

    This is unfortunately :(

    I want to try the chance of recovery.

    Yes, true :(

    Friends, I'm doing all the stages with downgrade method and the last stage gives such error when I run this "FS_XXX-exfat_nocmac_nogc" file.

    This thread is sad AF. Guy can't read properly but messes with switch NANDs. And it seems it's not the first time either.

    A lot of people have said no.
    Until a solution to use a DONOR NAND or someway to extract the keys via hardware. You're SOL for now.

    Honestly you're better off start saving for a new one or a 2nd hand unpatched switch because a solution might never happen and you're just waiting for nothing. Next time please consult people here first rather than doing stuffs on your own because downgrading using back up of other switches was a really dumb move. Also can't stress this enough but backup, back up, back up! A simple back up could save you in a lot of bricks and headaches that you'll encounter in the future.

    i think this the source of all ur problem, who make you think you could even use nand from another switch? every switch is unique, you can't use nand from another console.

    If you still have its original nand and keys, then you probably could restore it, otherwise sell it online as repair piece. many people seek screen replacements.

    I have no nand backup. But there's the original biskey.

    Edit: fuses.bin tsec_keys.bin There are also files.

    Gambia, The
    Without your boot0/boot1 and Prodinfo (which are all part of the Nand backup you did not make), you're borked. That's that, get a new console and stop doing really, really stupid shit conducting severely uninformed actions like restoring another console's NAND backup.
