    Now that's great info! I was wondering if the rail's power could be used or not. So if i have the right, you bridged pads 3 and 5 to activate the power pin, then also bridged 10 and 7 to enter RCM, then hooked pad 4 to the super capacitor?

    Then it sounds like you were unprepared. Also, pin 9 is not a ground pin. It will likely still work, but may stop working in the future or cause occasional problems as pin 9 is not guaranteed to be pulled low all the time. In general, there's a reason we stopped using pin 9 a long time ago.

    Yeah, do this:
    rig.

    The only reason people 3D print rigs, or solder rails or joycon pins, is to have a stable rig that will hit the correct pins 100% of the time.

    If you're just gonna use tinfoil, or use wires without soldering them, you're no better off just directly using the foil/wire, because the point of having a 100% reliable 100% stable RCM jig is completely lost with that.

    If I had a spare joycon rail, I'd personally go to a cellphone/laptop repair shop kind of place, and ask them if they would solder a wire connecting pin 1 and 10 for a few bucks.

    its very easy to do a "jig" with this product, you just need to solder a wire in the pins 1 and 10.

    You should learn. You can pick up the basics on YouTube these days and pick up an entry level soldering iron for next to nothing in the UK.

    It's a super useful skill for anybody who is interested in gaming hardware, computers or electronics to have and this would be a good intro project.

    Learning English should be job one. We won't be able to understand what you're asking otherwise.

    No, your post didn't make sense. That was the problem. If you do actually understand English then go back and read it and you'll see what I mean.

    My point is if you install AutoRCM, you wont need a jig anymore, thats it. You can use tinfoil jig on first time (making very very easy) and done.

    Could anyone please provide a picture where you have to solder pin 1 and 10 exactly? I'd like to purchase a right rail and give it to somebody who can solder.
