    Ok I ran GPT restore, just want to be clear when/what to format. I need to format USER and SYSTEM partitions via hacktool?

    No you have to use guiformat with 16k cluster size whilst mounting the partition using hacdiskmount with BISKEYS nothing to do with hactool. Same as you did when you transferred files directly.

    Screenshot looks okay though via imgur link.

    I saw a glimmer of hope, when I booted with the custom hekate.ipl after you do all the steps it briefly flashed the red Nintendo logo, then immediately skipped over to the Nintendo white switch logo.

    After a roller coaster of a ride since Wednesday, I finally got to boot back into CFW. I followed the ReiNX guide setting up my sd card and after a few failed attempts to boot up, the 4th time I tried to send the reinx payload via tegrasmash it worked. All the other failed attempts after the Chodujour long guide I was trying to boot cfw from hekate 4.6; not sure if that had anything to do with it or not.

    Thanks to those who helped me troubleshoot, especially Pretzal-you rock!!

    Booting with the 4.6 hekate payload should have worked with the custom ipl. Strange it didn't work, I'd suspect a possible corruption on the sd card since the rebuild is done directly between pc and switch.

    Either that or a suspect usb cable.

    Glad you got it all up and working though.

    you took us on a rollercoaster of emotions lmao! I felt like it was my nintendo switch at stake of being fully bricked xD just glad this is finally fixed holy crap! If it went unsolved we all would of felt some type of way. I thought the issue could have been the cfw at 5.1 but who knows, probably just sd issues.
