    Hello guys,
    I updated my switch to 6.0.0 via choidujournx and everything worked perfectly. then I left the console for about 1 week in dock mode and didnt used it. Now it wont turn on again. the 12 second hard reset doesnt work, sd card or cartridge removal also didnt work for me and charging the battery doesnt give me the battery status on the upper left.I wasnt using autorcm mode nor do I think It is in rcm mode So do you guys have any Ideas maybe even a File that manually starts the switch if its connected to the pc?

    Try holding the power button for 20 seconds.

    I gues on earth.
    You sure you don't have autorcm?
    What happens when you connect it to the PC?
    Let it charge for about an hour and then try pushing a payload.

    Your fuses are burned since you did not enable autorcm. Hold Power button for 20sec, put rig and enter rcm mode. Then flash payload

    How would that make his switch unable to boot to 6.0.0?

    He said he updated via choidujournx with no autorcm. So when his switch is dead after a week and the very first time he plug in power to charge his switch it will power and burn his fuses.
    I think he is confused as he did not know even his device is in rcmmode since he didn't use tegrarcmgui to check.

    The sure fire way to boot a dead switch IMO is

    1. Let it sit on a charger for a 1h or so
    2. Unplug and hold power button for 10sec >
    3. Plug in a cable from your pc and let it auto boot up (AutoRcm enabled of course)
    4. Push payload.

    Yea. But burning the fuses is totally normal, so that can't stop his switch from booting.

    Burning the fuses will stop you from booting up into horizon hence a soft brick.

    To be honest, i don't know what OP is doing. Booting a dead switch without pushing a payload ...

    Ahm, no?
    Fuses are burned with every major update. Whenever your switch has fewer fuses than your FW requires, it will burn the appropriate number of fuses. If you downgrade and have more fuses than your FW requires, you won't be able to boot without fuse bypass. That's when the soft brick happens.
    What he is doing sounds pretty normal to me. He thought that he does not have autoRCM, so normal boot should have worked. But he has autoRCM after all.
