    Is your SD card formatted as exFAT? If you didn't install the exFAT version of 8.1.0 with ChoiDujourNX, your exFAT SD card will be unreadable.

    To fix the problem, use a FAT32 SD card to install the exFAT update with ChoiDujourNX or reformat your SD card as FAT32.

    FAT32 is recommended.

    You only have two options, as I said above:
    1. Use a different SD card that's formatted as FAT32 to use ChoiDujourNX again and reinstall 8.1.0 with exFAT support.
    2. Backup the contents of your SD card and reformat the SD card as FAT32.

    Do the following:
    1. Make a NAND backup with Hekate if you haven't already. Store it somewhere safe.
    2. Remove all CFW files/folders from your SD card (that would be folders like /sept/ and /atmosphere/)
    3. Download the latest Atmosphere from GitHub (currently 0.9.3)
    4. Download the latest fusee-primary (next to Atmosphere)
    5. Download these signature patches
    6. Put Atmosphere and the signature patches onto your SD card
    7. Make sure your SD card is FAT32 with 32KB clusters
    8. Put the SD into your Switch
    9. Launch Atmosphere using fusee-primary

    It was most likely a theme that you had to delete. did you have a custom theme installed?

    Most themes from 6.1.0 or so don't work on 8.0+ firmwares, there is a theme folder inside SD:/atmosphere/titles/ that contains the theme, I forgot the folder, but I think it was all zeros and ones, removing that should have worked for you, or was most likely your problem, too late to check though, right? it was in SD:/atmosphere/tiitles/0100000000001000
