    Hey everyone. my switch isnt booting. I was in Hekate and looked a my TSEC keys there and it says:

    TSEC Key 3 = 0000000000000000000000000000
    But TSEC Key 1 and 2 show values. Is that normal?

    Also BISKEYdump spit out the same numbers for BISKEY2 and BISKEY3. Is that normal?

    BIS KEY 2 (crypt) = BIS KEY 3 (crypt)
    BIS KEY 2 (tweak) = BIS KEY 3 (tweak)

    All 4 should be filled.

    BIS Keys 2/3 should be identical.

    What did you do before it stopped working?

    Did you run one of those leaked NSPS because it looks like some app changed the keys and well if you dont have a nand backup Im afraid you are bricked

    Well this certainly made for an interesting thread title.

    I did install an NSP then my console doenst work. My NAND backup before hacking this is showing this. BISKEY DUMP doesnt show any 00000000000000000000. But when I use Hekate it says TSEC Key 3 = 0000000000000000000000000000.

    My NAND backup did not fix this. Ive been working on this for 5 weeks no luck. Yesterday it booted into OFW then seconds later black screen and I cannot get it to do that again.
    IVe tried rewriting a NAND using Choi computer commands and flashing over. No luck. Complete NAND and boot restore no luck. Im worried Im doing something wrong or am missing something.

    Does it matter ?

    Ah BIS Key & TSEC Keys are not the same. You said TSEC but also talked about BIS Key. Confusion came from this :)

    I'm no expert, but if backup restoring doesn't fix it and it randomly almost works sometimes, it might be a hardware problem.

    well my issue is Im pretty sure its a trusted source. Thats why I have this strange feeling its a hardware problem. or maybe a botched installation
