Question Would it be "legal" for me to post "blank" boot0 / 1 for repair purposes?

    I haven`t worked out the sums myself yet. But I`m working on it. You can get the keys if your system is booting. First one I have come across. And I`ve done A LOT of them.

    You just never stop learning, do you. Because learning is fantastic and you have created such great software for the community! Please keep learning! ^_^

    My 2 cents: if there is nothing proprietary in it (no keys), it should be okay. If you had to bypass security measures to obtain it, you shouldn't be sharing it.

    ROFLCOPTERLMAO!!!! Oh you, sir. You crack me up beyond belief. Nintendo might not like it because it digs into their repair revenue?

    But it goes into Nintendo, it comes out with homebrew no longer working. I wouldn`t call that a repair!

    Not had chance to work on it today. Will do tomorrow.

    I'm wondering if anyone has used the unbrick pack I posted with any success

    What do you mean that it will recover it to 6.2.0?

    It's a last chance saloon really.

    If people have badly messed up their system, as long as their prodinfo is intact, they can recover.

    Keyblobs aren't needed like with 6.1 0.

    Includes a blank rawnand too.
    With that you can restore raw Hekate partitions (then enter your keys AFTER. Not before)

    Or paste your keys in each partition, mount,then it will format using your keys.

    May do a proper write up at some point

    Brief instructions inside the pack. Need it mirroring as I can't leave on forever. Or can I lol

    Ah okey, To bad you can't generate your biskeys when the prodinfo is broken

    You can. Bis keys aren't the problem. If prodinfo is wrecked, you have no certs.

    You could use a different prodinfo and recalc the hashes etc and transplant it over I guess.

    You obviously won't have a cert in there. Unless you pinch one. Or a serial.

    But yep in theory, we have all the pieces to build a new Frankenstein prodinfo.

    People are reluctant to do this, as if anything is wrong, the cert will get banned.

    And the cycle will continue.

    It's trivial really to make a payload maybe based on lockpick, decrypt the cal0 prodinfo, do the necessary cleaning, recalculate the hashes, convert it back to raw, restore with Hekate.

    People will still need their bis keys to access the partition though as we know.

    So I messed up and upgraded with SX to 9.0 a few weeks back and I haven't been able to boot past the Nintendo logo since. I was told the problem was a corrupted boot file, but I don't have NAND or Boot backups, would this be able to fix my problem?

    As you know, I've tried to get help to develop a method to unbrick the virus killed Switches. So if that would work, it would be a huge success.

    I was thinking if I could find some boo0 and boot1 blank's of the firmware 9.0.1 maybe would fix my switch because I got brick it when I restore that files I havent touch the gpp because of the keys it may work no?

    If your emmc is intact, try it, if its just boot0/1


    BTW: Uploaded new pack to the usual place. v9.0.0 blanks.

    Need some 9.0.1 boot0/1 if anyone wants to email me them.

    Usual password fellow anime haters.

    These are files that assist with UNBRICKING UNITS ONLY. Just before some bloody dogooder tries saying "Piwacey".

    PSX PUPS are allowed after all. I class them as the same. No keys, BOOT0 are NOT encrypted and just exist on the REMOVABLE Emmc. Nothing here of any value unless your console is fooked.

    massive thanks to @linuxares for being a patient soul!
