Hello Team Xecuter Team and Supporters,

i have a problem to boot my Switch from RCM Mode into CFW or OFW. In both situations i get a black screen.
This issue cames with my Update Seassons. I Updated at first OFW and than the CFW.
Auto RCM is UNINSTALLED

Also i cant start my switch without dongle and jig. Only RCM Mode is possible.
Please Help :)

CFW Version 2.7.1 beta
OFW Version 8.0.1

If you can only boot SX bootloader with the dongle then either your sysnand is corrupt or you have autoRCM turned on.

If you boot the hekate payload and turn off autoRCM from there does the Switch boot normally without the dongle?

It is just a payload file that you can put on the root of your SD. You would then boot to the SX bootloader -> options -> other payloads (I think) and click the hekate one. Then just follow the onscreen instructions to navigate the menu. I just want you to try and turn off autoRCM there because either that is in fact turned on or you tried to downgrade/upgrade and the nand got corrupt. There is no other reason I can think of for you to have the problem you are having based on the info you have provided in the 2 threads.

I cannot remember from the other thread that you posted, but did you have emunand setup?

Ladys and Gentleman,

i do this steps to rescue my OFW Nand.

https://github.com/mattytrog/Switchboot_PART_2/blob/master/BOOT_REPAIR_PACKAGE_iha2.7z

1) Unzip file

2) Make folders on SD card like this...

a) Make "backup" folder
b) Go into backup folder and make a BACKUP_1 folder inside of it
c) Go into backup/BACKUP_1 folder and make another folder called BOOTS
d) Drop the included 8.0.1 BOOT0/1 into this BOOTS folder

3) Launch included switchboot with tegraRCMsmash... Go to backup/restore

4) Go to restore

5) go to restore with no size check

6) New boot0/1 will be written...

7) It will take you to RCM menu if you want to enable autoRCM or not... all on screen

8) boot normally.

After this Steps, my switch turning on again.

IMPORTANT to say! ->
If u follow this steps, UNINSTALL AUTO-RCM.

Thanks a lot for all your Replies Guys!!!
