    Hey everyone, I just got done soldering on my SX Core chip into my switch (hopefully correct). And upon turning it on the light shows red but my switch boots up into ofw. What do I need to do from here? Have I done something wrong? I made sure both chips with "up" on it are visible after being placed in switch. Is this also correct? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    Did you put your firmware on your memory card. Also pics of install would help if you did the 1st suggestion

    If you press [Volume +] on boot, doesn't appear the boot menu?

    9 times out of 10 a red light is a soldering problem. Check your soldering joints with a magnifying glass for broken/missed welds.

    What all do you have on your sd card. Boot.dol and Sxos folder? Also now that you have blue light does the hold volume up on powerup bring up sxboot menu?

    Next time, post the thread in the right section. If you are making a thread about a modchip, then post it in the Modchips sub-forum.
