    What kind of Switch is it even? What did you do when the brick happened?

    A nand backup would have helped. It will have everything there.

    the old incognito nro is comfirmed safe to use

    since you are on mariko, *must* lockpick your biskey, backup a bootable nand image at least, make an emunand for daily use, do not use any tool writes nand unless you have ability to fix it on an emunand

    just google the bis keys.... hopefully they are the universal keys you need and not the console unique.

    do you have the original prodinfo (encrypted, not plain text, mean no plain text CAL0 header)? tinfoil should have auto backup though i never use it. check your tinfoil folders in /switch.

    if you have just directly backup your system partition within sx bootmenu, save another copy to pc, no matter it's broken or not (to prevent you do silly and mess up other patition resulting a forever brick). then replace prodinfo in the backup with HacDiskMount (use blank key for no crypto), then restore it you might do the trick

    if you have plain text backup then you are fxxkup at biskey, then you have to wait lockpick_rcm to support mariko unit, then boot the payload to get it, step is like wise but you have to use biskey for crypto.

    if you just lose any backup, you still have the chance to fix and boot, but losing nin online feature for good

    anything potential brick should go 1step 1backup, or just dont do it

    JUST, DO IT! YES YOU CAN

    They're console unique.

    Hey, did you manage to solve this? I've made the same mistake and can't turn on my switch. No nand backup though.

    Lucky for you there exists an universal 5.1.0 floating around, you'll need to use your biskeys and hacDiskMount to manually inject everything. once that's all done do yourself a favor and make a nand backup. You'll never have a legit install even when updating but at least it will not be a black 300$ Brick. Cheers

    Wait for Lockpick_RCM mariko support, if you don't have biskeys. No way to unbrick it without biskeys.

    My console is not Mariko, it's a patched old one.
