    My switch with cfw is not turning on anymore. I press the power on button and I see the nintendo, then that screen with the low battery icon in the left corner. I plugged it in and the screen with the low battery icon appears BUT this time the screen dosn't just appear and disappear as usual. Instead the screen just stay frozen. I think nothing of it but after a while I check on it and it still says low battery and wont turn on propely.

    Whats going on?

    And how can I fix it?

    just leave it on there for several hours and try again. I bet it will fix itself.

    Are you using AutoRCM?
    It's probably booting into RCM mode and draining your battery. You can try either one of those:
    - Plug it into the dock, and wait several hours as the user above said; or
    - Press and hold power button for 15 seconds, and try to recharge it (it might turn RCM off and allow a faster charging and power on)

    You didn't answer the question , was it on AutoRCM when it ran out of battery?

    I misunderstood the issue. It's basically freezing after you try to boot into CFW, right?

    Could you elaborate more on the issue? What CFW and payload are you using? It started to happen out of nowhere or just after a update? Do you have custom themes installed?

    Edited (for clear understanding)

    1) If you try to boot normally into OFW (without injecting payload) it also freezes?

    2) How long have you been using CFW before the issue? It's the first time you're trying to boot into it?

    3) When you say that you inject payload and nothing happens, it means you can't even access bootloader? (the menu with the options to activate RCM and Nand stuff)

    4) Have you ever done a Nand backup?

    Ok, see if you can enter Safe Mode, by doing this:

    1) Completely turn off your switch.
    2) Press and hold both Vol. Up and Vol. Down
    3) Tap (do not hold) Power button, while you still hold Vol. Up and Vol. Down
    4) Keep holding the Vol. buttons till you boot into the safe mode (which gives you options to format the system)
