After i ran incognito on my switch with sx core v2, the screen freezes at the joycon nintendo switch logo. Can anyone help me fix this? I’m completely new to this.

Do you have full NAND backup? If you don't, you need PRODINFO backup and biskeys to fix it.

Hi Henry, I followed the guide up to the incognito installation, so I should have it, right? I'm just new to this scene and I'm very confused with so many information with different systems.

I have sx core with v2 running sx os 3.0.5. This guide is for 3.0.3. Is it safe to following the guide or are there any ways to roll back using and backup? I tried to restore using nand restore but It still freezes at the joycon logo screen.

I really appreciate your help.

If you want to save an hour, after dumping your sysNand, and saving the content of "sxos/backup" folder to a safe place (your computer, somewhere in the cloud...), you can simply rename the "sxos/backup" folder on your SD card into "sxos/emunand" and your emuNand is all set, ready to be used.
You might want to update your tutorial with this useful information.

Hi guys,

I just got SX Core installed and I just see a red icon with the text below "boot.dat?". I have tried to get into the boot manager mod but it doesn't work. Did some else had the same problem?

I have now the orange button "EmuNAND enabled" but when I start the cfw I see the Nintendo logo and then only black screen. I can then only hold the power button for are long time to restart my switch.

Did anyone else had the same issue? If yes who did you solve it?

Hi there guys, im wondering that since my 256gb sd card is already pretty much out of space, how do i add a hdd to the switch using sx core so that i can put some more games on it.
I´ve tried to find info regarding that matter, but not finding anything useful.
Thanks
