Using paper clip jig, but it wont boot into RCM.

The clip is now in the right place because before it would just boot normally, but now i get nothing

Hmmm

Probably going to get the sx pro if i can't do it today.

picked up a NEW Switch today for $260. Got super lucky. Pretty sure dude got it in Mexico or something cause the box and instructions look like it's more Spanish than English.

Got a screen protector on it

It's serial number / firmware clears for it being moddable ( firmware 4.1)

Gonna go out tonight and buy everything I need. Can someone help me? I'll need a microSD card to load games (gonna get a 256gb one), I need a paperclip to do the RCM sh*t, I need a USB C to USB A cable to connect the Switch to my PC to load the payload?

Anything else?

Gonna pick up 3 Hori Switch controllers tonight too

You won't currently be able to run XCI files without converting to NSP unless you have SX OS which is a paid CFW that goes for around $25 or bundled with a SX pro dongle. Most games are readily available in NSP format though and yeah that 32gb ain't gonna cut it LOL.

Yh

I will get SX OS at some stage, but for now this is fine

XCI files are so much bigger than NSP

I got so many games downloaded
Got a google drive link with near enough all games in NSP

Yh the 32 was for when I was using the switch legit
Ordered a 128gb just now.

SX OS isn't really needed if you are already up and running. XCI file sizes are usually around the same size as the NSP as most NSPs are converted from the XCI cartridge dump. Not sure if you may be looking at the game update files that are normally in NSP format.

What firmware you on 6.2?

I'm sure at some stage it can be hacked.

6.2 has already been hacked. He probably has a switch that was made after June 2018 and Nintendo patched the exploit used to hack the switch units at that time. So glad I bought one earlier. Hell before I even knew about being able to hack this sh*t I was NOT even playing this sh*t

How's it going?
Good bro. Got everything I want on it. No emulators yet but I'll get to that.

I bought a 256gb card as shown in the pic but I've only used about 90gb and I have more games than I even wanna play (I went stupid and downloaded a lot of games I really didn't have much interest in playing but said fu*k it).

I believe 128gb is more than enough for most people. It's certainly more than enough for me and my uses. 128gb is only $25 and a 256gb card is $60 so in hindsight, I probably would have bought the 128gb sd card and used the extra money to buy an accessory or two

But really this is the best thing I've bought in years. The switch is mad fun. I love the fact that me and my girl can go from playing a game on the TV to putting the switch in portable mode and eat dinner at the kitchen table and still play while the switch is on its kickstand. Or that you can take the joycons off your switch and use them as 2 controllers for you and a friend. Little sh*t like that is mad cool.

All in all I probably spent about $385 or something for everything I bought and it was mad worth it. Can't justify spending nearly $400 on too many electronics imo.

As far as modding it goes the only trouble I ever had was getting the paperclip jig to work but that's cause I'm a dumbass. My girl made the paperclip jig in 5 mins and after that it was smooth sailing for the modding part.

I got a little confused about .XCI and .NSP files and how to convert .XCI files to .NSP but I figured it out and it's pretty easy.

If we're being picky I wished the Switch had a browser. I wish it had netflix and more video apps but that's me trying to nitpick and have a reason to use my Switch for more than gaming.

My 128gb card should be here in a day or 2, but might get a 256gb

Like you I got so many games
I don't know how I'm going to get through them all

I love that we can get all DLC as well.

I nearly gave up with the paper clip
This one lil thing was holding me back....
But I sorted it and having fun.


I download all my games in NSP
They are way smaller then XCI

More than likely it is not.

Serials beginning with XAW1:
XAW1007800X and below are safe to buy
XAW1007900X and above not safe to buy, possibly patched
XAW1012000X and above definitely patched

Been trying to get the right cable for my phone so I can use my phone to push the payload to my Switch if it's ever turned off and I'm not at home (mostly because I'm going on vacation and don't wanna bring a laptop with me or worry if my switch is gonna die and I can't boot it back up cause I can't push the payload to it). Bought the wrong cable 2 times now so I'm just gonna buy this



It's portable and sh*t. You would think you could just make your own by using a USB flashdrive and a USB C adapter but guess you need an actual computer (like a raspberry pi) to actually send the command to push the payload to switch (I'm just guessing).


Also looking to get a good portable battery not just for the switch but for my phone and headphones I carry to work with me every day. This one looks solid and works for Switch (atleast in sleep mode. May not be strong enough to charge it while you're playing- at the very least it may sustain a charge while playing)
