    You must have installed Linux or Lakka then. It doesn't.

    I've been uing autoRCM ever since hekate had its sleep mode fixed. I haven't had any issues with charging, battery de-syncing, or anything. I don't usually let my switch go below 30% of juice though.

    I never installed linux or used anything else, literally all i did was install AutoRCM and restart the switch a few times to test it and the next time i turned it on it wouldn't work.

    It's not a real issue if you're alone. You have probably leave your switch for some hours in RCM mode.

    But that would imply it was a battery drain issue, it took quite a while for the battery de-sync to fix itself after that even after uninstalling AutoRCM it still struggled to turn on.

    You said its a known issue. That is false. No one here speaks of getting a battery sync issue using AutoRCM.

    Battery desync has only been happening to users who tried Lakka or Linux as others have said. You probably left your switch in RCM too long because you didn't power it off properly using the hetake boot menu.

    Well to be fair i'm not the only one who has commented in this thread with this problem.
    edit: Also i have triple checked my switch has been turned off properly so i have never left it in RCM mode.

    The battery de-sync with AutoRCM HAS happened before. The below is one example.

    As you can see, if you leave the Switch charging in RCM with a corrupt BCT, the OS will think its accepting charge but the actual charge rate is diminished due to the corrupt BCT. The following is the differences in charges rates with and without AutoRCM during RCM.
    So to achieve the battery de-sync, you would have to have AutoRCM installed AND have the Switch in RCM AND be actively charging it.

    I've done exactly this on multiple occasions and I know for sure my battery is calibrated properly still. Odd.

    And you left the Switch charging in RCM for copious amounts of time or was it simply idling in RCM without accepting a charge?

    I wasn't aware of how to turn off the switch fully for a while when I got AutoRCM, and would just put it into sleep or turn off via horizon (not hetake boot menu) and then would plug it in to charge, and it would do so very slowly. Never had any battery desync issue to this day.

    It will accept charge with a corrupt BCT, albeit very, very slowly. I'm assuming after you left it charging (which is being done in RCM) that you hooked it up via USB, sent the Hekate payload, and booted into Horizon/CFW? Not hold power for 10+ seconds to manually power down the Switch to exit RCM?

    Yep that's correct that's what I did do. Now I always inject the payload from my phone to hit power off in the hetake menu.

    This is the last thing I can think of. Say you left your Switch at X battery percentage then you let it charge in RCM up to a Y percentage that you see once you immediately send Hekate. Now you use the Switch for some time and it goes down. Do you charge the Switch at all while it is on or do you do all of your charging in RCM?

    ???
    So this boots normally if no payload is found?

    Pressing the power button on your Switch with this will make it automatically go into RCM. In RCM, you cannot do anything outside of manually turning the Switch off or sending a payload. So it will stay in RCM if no payload is no found and not boot normally. It will only boot normally without AutoRCM installed.
