    if you turn it on and just get a black screen you might have accidentally left it in rcm and the battery died.

    1. If you remove the sd card, it passes the nintendo switch logo and you can see the horizon's home menu?
    2. In hekate you tried "Print sd card info" and "Print emmc info"?
    3. When you are saying that sx os booted, you mean the sx os menu or the boot.dat missing logo? Did you enter horizon with this?
    4. What configuration you tried to boot horizon? [Stock]? [Atmo with homebrew]? sth else?
    5. You use autoRCM? (this does not play a big role, just asking)

    Did a full re-backup of my 3.0.2 Switch for all 4 options using the newest 3.2 payload.

    Got about ~62GB in backups compressed down to ~4.5GB using 7zip, and everything went flawlessly!

    Dang that's pretty good!
    Glad to hear it's that compressible.

    1. No it still wont boot
    2. When I try any features in hekate that have to access the sd card, such as ( print sd card info) it just hangs at a blank screen and does nothing.
    3.the whole menu loaded for me when I tried it, I put the boot.dat on my sd card.
    4. I was booting completely stock
    5. No I've never used auto rcm or messed with boot at all

    If what you say is correct (booting OFW, not even through hekate), doesn't boot without sd card), that's not good.
    That probably means that's something wrong with your sd card reader or with the sdmmc1 clocks, so basically a hardware failure.

    I can't help you today, but tomorrow I can send you a debug version and check where exactly hangs.
    On the other hand, I don't believe that this will help you with Horizon though (I hope I'm wrong!), because its sdmmc1 init is similar (but more complete) with hekate.

    By the way, sx uses proprietary sdmmc1 and dram init/training, taken from google/nvidia, so that's why it works. Try to boot into horizon with this (so we can know that your eMMC is ok at least).

    @CTCaer, thanks for taking the time to look into the sleep option, works perfectly in 3.0.1 now :)

    So, it probably is what I thought it was.

    If I understood correctly your switch is completely stock.
    Maybe you'll have to get it to nintendo service (without your sd card of course) to fix it.

    But before that (because you may end up with an unexploitable switch), we'll try some things tomorrow.

    what was the last thing you did before you noticed you couldn't boot into OFW?

    Nothing I made a nand backup, rebooted, then played on it for a couple days. One morning I woke up and it was in a loop

    Nope they can't.
    As far as Nintendo goes, your console is untouched. And it is, actually. You never even run any cfw. And when you tried it stopped at boot anyway.
    So if you have still warranty, they will fix it for free.
