Hi Folks,

I could use some help. I accidentally updated my switch to the latest version without having updated the dongle first, and now I load into a black screen when I try to boot up with the dongle. I’m wondering if there’s a way to update the dongle without launching the program on the switch? Mostly because I’m just getting a black screen at the moment.

Your not actually updating the dongle. You update the boot.dat file on sd card.
Go to https://sx.xecuter.com/ download latest version unzip then transfer to sd card.
Always update SX before Switch. Newer SX will work with both versions of FW but SX version may only work on previous one causing black screen.
