    How can I fix it?

    I'm on autorcm. I unplugged my battery and then plugged in again.
    Hold 15 seconds power off. But I'm still stucked at the black screen.
    TegraRcmGUI says that I'm in RCM. Payload inject is sucessful but as I said before I'm stucked at the black screen.

    I think I'm the first lucky one with a real bricked console :D

    I gues on earth.
    Trust me that there are hundreds of people with a worse brick. Connect it to PC, hold the power button for 12 secs and see, if it disconnects from PC. Also, try pushing the payload multiple times.

    You may have a patched unit Look here >Link
    What payload are you trying to send ?

    And what do you mean you unplugged the battery did you open your unit ?

    But he has autorcm which you install via a payload to begin with.

    Thats right, and yeah ofcourse autorcm needs to be able to run the payload, My mistake not reading..
    But then again if he cant send a payload and gets black screen how he get autorcm.

    Yes I have autorcm enabled and now it works fine but I can't boot into sx os menu I want to disable autorcm...

    Now I know that my switch isn't bricked and I use now the payload hekate_ctcaer_3.2.bin.

    If I want to "launch firmware" my switch says "failed to init sd card" I bought my SD card today and my old one also didn't work.


    EDIT: I have no patched unit I played 100 times my backups.

    Sounds to me like you have a bad sd card, or reader. if you said the other was bad...
    You cant run SX OS from hekate Fyi

    Did you use the latest sx os payload and boot dat ?

    Whats your sd card format also.Did you also put the sdfiles by tom ger on your sd, as hekate will spit out that error if it cant read your sd files required for hekate

    sounds like the sd card reader is not plugged in correctly. Did you open your console?
