If the SX OS /Atmosphere/ReiNX and any other CFW still can work with the Nintendo switch 8.0?

From what we have found on the Nintendo Switch 8.0 update, we can find that SX OS/Atmosphere/ReiNX and any other CFW can't work on the Nintendo Switch 8.0 now .

What should we do ?DO NOT update your EmuNand to 8.0 manually using ChoiDujourNX )

Updates: About Emunand, SX OS 2.6.1 – 2.6.2 works on Sysnand 8.0 to boot Emunand 7.0.1 – Sleep mode works as expected, but DO NOT update your EmuNand to 8.0 manually using ChoiDujourNX, your EmuNand will boot to BLACK screen. There is no reason to update your EmuNand on 7.0.1 to 8.0, but the game sorting feature would be nice.

About Downgrade, because no fuses were burned, can we downgrade to 7.0.1 and have no need for RCM to boot into horizon? If you have a previous nand backup then yes you can downgrade to that, otherwise you need to manual downgrade to 6.1 then go back up to 6.2 or 7.x.
