Hi,

My dongle from Xcecuter SX OS is defective.

Now I want to buy a new one.

Which would you recommend ?

- Xcecuter SX OS PRO Dongle
- R4S Dongle
- RCM Loader One
- DragonInjector

I need to run and install the SX OS Cheat menu and to the NSP and XCI.

Thank you.


Greetings..

Merlin

Not rly an answer to ur question, but there is an android app called rekado, which pushes the desired payload with an otg adapter + usb-C cable to the switch. I shouldnt recommend a dongle if never used one. good luck

RCMLoader One. I'm using it right now and it works perfectly, it even has a jig slot thingy that you can slide a jig into.
Only problem is it's a bit hard to get it out from the switch once you connect it, but you'll get used to it.
If you want to buy it heres the link (I got the link from another member so I think I can link it)

In here you choose LOADER 1PCS.
It is the loader, trust me. they did it like that because all sites ban loaders, so they made it very hidden. if you still don't believe me, look at the comments.
PRO is the SX Pro Dongle btw.

I think Dragoninjector would be great and very practical... If it ever releases

Thanks for the hint on how to order it. I tried to buy one a few weeks ago but just wasn't able to find it.

Seconded on the RCMLoader One. Functionality wise it is far better than SX Pro since you can dual boot SX along with other payloads, something that you can't really do with SX Pro, you would have to actually load your other payloads through the SX menu by holding the button combo on boot to show the menu, as the SX Gear (for chainloading other payloads) and SX OS payloads both rely on boot.bin, and you can't change the payload on the SX Pro for anything else.

The RCMLoader One supports 6 custom payloads that are switched with the button.

The battery charge also lasts a long time. I have only charged up my RCMLoader One once, when I initially got it earlier this year.
And I really like the form factor/design, it's small, looks good, and comes with a high quality jig that securely slots into a slot on the dongle so you don't lose it.

My RCMLoader One doesn't seem to click in place in the USB-C port so it does not stay in place on its own, maybe I just need to press really hard, but it makes it really easy to quickly insert and remove. No issues with it being hard to remove from the Switch.

Like everyone says, RCMLoader One is the one to get right now. I was actually interested in the DragonInjector, but I needed my dongle before 2022, so I ordered RCMLoader One instead. It's very nice.

True, but you don't need to insert it fully. Since it automatically injects the payload, you just insert it halfway until you see the LED light up, and you see the payload app showing on your Switch screen. Then you remove it. Done.

Didn't know that, thanks.

If you can wait a bit get the Dragoninjector. The final design is done. Production in bigger volumes should have started by now (1-2 weeks ago was the last time i checked and it was ready for mass production). It's small (fits in any gamecart case or the slot in your Switch), it will last you more than a year on a single battery and should be better quality than your generic china dongle.
