    Unless you plan on opening that baby up, Hekate is the way to go. You're going to need to find an SD card that will cooperate with Hekate. Try formatting them within your computer.

    EDIT: In order to be extra cautious, it might also be worth using something like h2testw if you haven't already to determine if your SD cards are fake or not.

    It's not fake I've tested it and I've been using it for months. My switch just started bootlooping overnight and I can't get it to boot no matter what I do. I've made no modifications I've just booted hekate and made nand backups. Hekate wont boot with any sd cards I try, I've tried 3 different ones. I've never ran sx os but I tried the loader just to test and it works fine.

    Hmm, its strange that the SX OS Loader works but not Hekate. It might be worth posting in his thread and asking for his advice. He usually responds to everyone's problems (when he has the time to). The only other thing I can think of trying is using different versions of Hekate and see if any of those work.

    Maybe another problematic SDcard slot?
