Can someone recommend an easy way to short pin 10 without taking apart the joycon?

    Btw, do you really need to open your joycon? I can see them (pins) very well without any dismantle. I think i can make a tiny metal plate and just put it in that small hole, so i can short pin 9 and 10. Or am i missing something?

    Yes. Remove the joycon and look in there at the pins. If you have a friend around to hold volume + and hit power while you make sure you're on the correct pin that might be easier.

    I used a flashlight and a small safety pin to lift up pin 9 slightly, then bend it over pin 10.

    Yeah thats exactly it. Going to solder a usb port onto it or just use a ras pi if it is not easy enough. I still have a 1.0 switch that I'm hoping will be the holy grail but have a ton of friends who i know want me to mod their 4.x+

    For the people who built the RCM jig from f0f, does anyone have pics or instructions on how to build the microusb part of the jig?

    was i supposed to do it from the switch's rail all along? i was trying to do it with the pins on the joycon itself not the ones in the switch rail

    as long as pin 10 is grounded then it will work. theres no need to ruin a good joycon. you can always order joycon rails on ebay if you need to replace one.

    Doing the solder will not ruin it by the way. It works the same just the other methods will probably mess things up

    Anything conductive.
    just splice an old USB cable or something. make sure not to jam into any other pins though. just pin 10. if you touch 9 its okay because thats already a ground.

    I'm referencing the bent pin method, I would solder before doing anything else, I just dont own an iron. I ordered a rail to replace the one on the joycon I bent and another that I'm going to use for launching RCM
