Hi, I'm from Germany and that's why my English is very bad. I have a problem. I have a new switch with the firmware 8.1.0 .. I have downloaded the os version 2.8 beta and have pushed it to the SD card. Did everything for guidance, but the switch does not start with the dongle. the dongle only glows blue for a very short time. the screen stays dark. do I have to do something different with the fw 8.1.0? I am looking forward to your Answers.

with friendly grins.

I have some what the same problem. But then I formatted my sd card and copy an old back up. Now I get to the custom boot menu but when I try to boot custom or original firmware the screen turns black and nothing happen.

@Flashbakk Did you check to see if your Swtich was hackable first?

Same thing happens to me, it just flashes black for a short moment and then stays dark.
Im able to go into RCM mode properly, but the dongle wont work.
I just tried before with 8.0.1 and it worke properly, so im sure my switch is Hackable, and the dongle is working :(!
