    Do you have a NAND backup you can restore?

    Whatever you do on your emuNAND should not affect your sysNAND. In other words, it won't install AutoRCM if you're using your emuNAND.

    I gave up reading that thread when it says: It should go without saying but I’ll say it anyway: This method is very dangerous. It could brick your Switch even beyond recovery and RCM if something goes wrong.

    I'd like to see some proof that you can do anything in RCM that would prevent RCM from launching.

    It's not a brick, its an intentional recovery mode boot loop. I'd accept an argument that ipatched units are semi bricked. I'm not going to join an anti autorcm cult.

    I don't need your money. I'm glad everything is working now.

    If you don't want your Switch to coldboot into RCM, remove AutoRCM.

    I was able to fix it on mine, Just saying that i had simular issues. And was able to get it back after som tries. I hope MITSMOTS DO the same. Dont wish a bricked switch on anybody..

    Sadly i dont have my Old switch anymore, i gave mine to my nephew fore his birthday. And i bought a new/ used switch. And i manages to buy a patched switch with firmware 7.1 on it... Stupid me

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    At least the serial number say its patched on some sites. I have t tried to inject payload. But i guess i dont need to trie aither so.... Sad...

    AutoRCM is an intentional softbrick that allows for a convenient way to enter RCM. As you said, it's an intentional RCM bootloop, and that's a softbrick. AutoRCM itself should always be able to be removed, and it's is relatively safe. There used to be concerns regarding the ability to charge a dead battery in a system with AutoRCM installed, but those concerns ended up being unfounded.

    If AutoRCM is somehow installed onto a patched system, I can't think of any way to recover from that kind of brick without a hardmod.

    That all being said, in principle, a malicious RCM payload could potentially fry hardware components, but I'm unaware of this ever having happened.

    Make a nand backup and use emunand, then you shoul be quite safe in the future. And do a backup after every firmware update..

    AutoRCM could be fixed if signed code was injected.
