Just updated to 8.1 through SX Installer and now I'm stuck in RCM Mode. I can inject the payload and TegraRCM says it's done so successfully, but the device isn't responding. IDK what's wrong with it. I have the newest boot.dat, payload.bin, and got the 8.1FW files from SXOS' forums. Ran the installation just like it said to. People suggested injecting twice but that hasn't worked.

Sounds like sx installer crashed like it is for most people and you were running a exfat formatted sd card.

Most likely it can't read your sd card thus a black screen. Try fat32 format using guiformat then put newest beta boot.dat then inject payload.

Sounds like to me the new sxinstaller has some serious flaws with grading the firmware I have red up on quite a few issues lately. I don’t think I will be using it myself, it’s not something you really want to be taking chances with!
