    I was wondering if these are still sold or not. I can't find them anywhere. If they aren't sold anymore, can anyone link me to a place where i can buy a broken unpatched switch so i can get the motherboard from it so i can transfer it to my patched switch.

    not yet at least though the price point is nearly twice as much as sx core/lite was and (hopefully) nintendo won't be able to do anything cause it only runs atmos so no piracy OOB unlike SX

    Sigpatches are not included with Atmos, they're hand made by some people, and distributing them isn't also illegal since they're not really doing anything on their own.
    So yes, you're a pirate, go get an eyepatch, but the solutions you're using aren't really tied to piracy.

    There are still some sellers but it's overpriced at least in my country. There's apparently a clone coming out.

    You've got too many thieves in your country.

    Yes, but it isn't included w/ atmosphere. The user has to locate and install the patches on their own, where as TX solution included them.

    I have on the search for one as well. There are a few people on here that have some stock but the prices are easily double the msrp if you are willing to pay

    I'm very out of the loop on all of this. Actually trying to sell my Switch with an SX Core installed.
    Why are people still trying to buy an SX chip if they're no longer being supported?

    You can use it to run Atmosphere if you want to keep your system updated.

    You can still find SX Cores. It's just hard to locate any because Nintendo sends C&Ds to any resellers. Best thing to do is ask people you know in the scene that do that sort of thing. I know a couple of people with stock but they only sell to people they know. The price they're selling for is double what they use to be but it's cheaper than the price of the clones.

    The clone version is already on the market, check Aliexpress or Taobao. It's also very expensive (3x the price of the original chip from one seller on Aliexpress).
