so, a friend of mine was using my switch (mistake 1). when he went to start a game it asked to update, he said yes - it looks like it started a fw update..... immediately powered off. looks like a partial update was started when power got pulled (long power press).

now atmosphere crashes on start, says 9.0.1

it was on 8.1

what can i do? it didnt get far into the install at all.... help plz :(

why did you power it of through, better burned fuses then a potential fully bricked switch?

they paniced when i was like wtf?.....

it boots to the menu, but then i get an atmosphere crash just after it says hit any button 3 times. if i hit A 3x fast it will get to the main menu of the switch, then bomb.

correction!

it will boot with my jig/rcm payload....but not without! wont power on..... works when in rcm/cfw tho!

Fuses are burnt the first boot after a update. not during the update. So you just burnt fuses.
Booting by payload bypasses that check so that is why you can still boot that way but not officially.

So. I should just update to 9.0.1 if needed then? I never boot this switch into ofw anyway. It’s a spare switch. I have another that’s stock

So I should just update to 9.0.1? Does everything work currently for atmosphere?

I never really boot to ofw. I have an unmodded switch for that too.

You might as well just update, I can't think of anything you have to lose at this point.
