  • Firmware You're Running
  • 1.0.0 using reboot_to_rcm
  • SD Card Specs (Brand, model, size, format) - SanDisk Ultra 200GB microSDXC UHS-I Card formatted to fat32
  • Backup Name and Origin (i.e. Your own? BBB Release? header included or header free?) -
  • N/A - not able to get this far
  • Details of the error - how it happened. when it happened first. can you reproduce it?
  • Yes - able to boot into SX OS but then not able to boot into Modified nor Original Firmware (black screen, have to hold power for 10-15 sec)
  • Details of Solution - If you already found it, or went somewhere else online to find the solution, add it anyways so that every may know.
  • Not sure yet. Going to try a jig to see if modifying the album is the problem or if it's an issue with 1.0.0 switches

Sorry, but you got me wrong. You have to format the SD using your PC and your Switch because in rare cases formatting with your PC only is not enough. Then you can re-add all files.
Gotcha, Guess I Misunderstood. Just updated it, thanks!

I was talking about Happy Birthdays (a card2 game too).
That was my bad. This still points to SX OS needing an update soon to support these.

Mine is in the latest firmware, but I have heard that with SX OS it is best to the latest firmware for everything to work. If I find any info I will update, but it does seem to be working on 3.0.2 from this video: (

Yes. Should’ve added that in my comment!

No problem! I'm just trying to make this as clean as possible to ensure everyone is able to find the answers they could be looking for, especially when the boards seem to be flooded with "crack SX OS" and "When will (insert store here) deliver my order" Threads. I think we need to avoid the chaos and get as organized as we can as a community to take as little casualties as possible.

Have you seen if this happens when in OFW? I will try to test this out on mine, but let me know so we can add this to the first post.


not me ,
there is another thread, where mightyMoe updated but it does not solve the issue.

I will add a compatibility tab later, I’m also having this issue, so it seems to be a SX Os firmware issue that is not compatible with LA Noir

I think that SX OS not recognizing backups from type 2 game cards is probably the biggest issue right now.. it's probably safe to assume that going forward all games released will be using these.

Yes, but they'll probably address this in a future update.

Correct, that and La Noire as of right now that I can confirm

Yes, but they'll probably address this in a future update.

They will need to address this soon, hopefully by Friday as they start getting more feedback

Kevin, hold the power button for 15 seconds. Wait a second or two and try turning on again, should work. Let me know how it goes.
