    So I updated to SX OS 2.0 yesterday and for the first time I installed autoRCM on my switch.
    Turns out that my switch will now boot into a pink screen when I inject the payload via TegraRCM.
    If I run the SX OS Menu and try to run CFW from there, my switch just reboots into black screen.

    I tried to uninstall AutoRCM and downgraded to SX OS 1.9 but no luck.
    Anyone else?

    EDIT: Problem solved! Scroll down for Solution.

    Does OFW work for you?

    Nope, same problem here.
    As soon as I start my switch, I get a pink/purple screen.

    You can try taking out the battery and reseating it again and see if it works for you. Else it's repairs that is needed.

    Now that I look at it again, I'd say it's purple.
    Also tried to fully shutdown anderen restart my unit but no luck there either.

    Could my boot0 got corrupted by the autorcm installer?

    I haven't tried it yet but didn't 2.0 come with a GPT repair option in the boot menu?

    Thanks for your recommendations! I will try to repair GPT later and post some feedback.

    EDIT:
    It worked! My switch is working fine again. Here is what I did, if anyone else has the same problem:

    1. Shutdown switch and release SD card
    2. Copy SX OS 2.0 boot.dat onto SD card and boot into RCM
    3. Repair GPT and shutdown switch
    4. Takeout SD card again and copy SX OS 1.9 boot.dat onto SD card
    5. Boot into RCM and inject payload to boot into SX OS

    I have to use v1.9 since the new version doesn't seem to boot on my 3.0.2 switch.
