This is strange as i have had the exact same issue with mine a while ago. I ended up fomatting the micro sd and setting up everything again.
Every time i was pressing the settings button the console crashed and wouldn't even execute the payload after.
I now have emumand on sd and everything seems to be ok...

Thats weird because I had an issue in system settings whenever I'd hit "test connection" under internet settings my switch would crash. Formatting my sd card solved the issue.

Exfat corrupts files on the Switch. Old fat32 is the only safe way to use homebrew and game backups without corruption.

Yeah sometimes it can get corrupted. I don't think you needed to format the whole card but just put sxos on it again. I've seen similar things happen with exfat and some files getting corrupted so it could have been that the Dat file got corrupted. Next time just delete the DAT file and redownload it again.
