So I've been modding my switch for awhile now and know how to enter rcm mode via my paper clip jig. But recently when trying to get back into modding my switch, it hasn't worked even though I checked every time if the ends are touching pins 1 and 10. Could my pins be broken? Or should I just buy a jig off amazon?

A paperclip is only supposed to be used once. Then you install autoRCM. Besides, $4-5 to get a proper jig is not such a big investment, you know. You risk damaging your Switch everytime you use a paperclip.
P.S. Get a RCM Loader One dongle, it comes with a proper jig included.

Go to a maker shop and have them 3D print one for you. That’s what I did when I got started. It was so small they didn’t even charge me.
