I went to AliExpress so buy a dongle for my little brother and to my surprise I found a modchip that uses the SAMD21 microcontroller.
It's a bit more expensive than the switchme modchip by team rebug (theirs is 7.50$ and this one is 11.98$), but hey it's something that you can buy right now. (Even though I've preordered switchme so I'm waiting for news.)
In the listlng you can see a pinout that shows you the solder points and in the picture of the listing itself I've seen you get something that really looks like a magnetic switch, so if someone would like to tell me what it is and what we need it for I'll thank him/her very much!

I expect its a magnetic switch, but you should verify with the seller, because since its ali express, if it doesnt say it, then you might get one without it.

。当我只是通过youtube搜索并找到相同的视频nfi时工作
Would this setup cause the chip to drain the battery if the switch is off?
If I'm using autorcm do I need to connect the cable to the pin 10?
NO , If you turn off the switch, the chip vcc will turn off too.
if you open the auto rcm, not need to solder the joycon pin10
