    HI dudes,

    I'm getting a second switch (2017 model so must be hackable I guess) (140 euros for just the screen)
    As I'm using my first one with SX pro (xci only, Don't want to use NSP on the firt one), what is the cheapest way to play NSP games on my second one ? I Don't want to spend another 50 bucks to buy SX pro …
    Thanks ;)

    Do you have an iPhone or an Android phone that uses USB-C? If so, then you can use that to deliver your payload. As for a jig, you can use the one from your SX Pro and then just enable AutoRCM, and then you won't need your jig again on that unit.

    Best-cheapest way is trinket or Gemma m0

    Cheapest is a jig and Rekado to launch payload via android

    Thanks for your answer, Yes I've got one USB type C phone.
    Btw, is there any CFW to install NSP ? I did not follow the news about it as I've got the SX Pro on my first console.

    Check out the guides in this site. You'll want to go with ReiNX.

    Firmware is not the important part here as the exploit is reliant on the hardware. And the way the scene determines the hardware is based on the serial number. Take a look through this thread to see if that serial number is vulnerable to the exploit or not: https://gbatemp.net/threads/switch-informations-by-serial-number.481215/

    It should be Ok, it has been bought in september 2017.
    As the console comes with no box, is there a way to get the serial number within the menu itself ?

    Most likely, yes. However for future reference, firmware is meaningless for this exploit. For example, a firmware of 5.1 can be exploited on a first-generation Switch but a firmware of 4.1 on the new ipatched units is not susceptible; therefore stating the firmware of the unit doesn't denote anything with regards to whether the device is exploitable or not.

    Cheapest would be to use a free CFW like ReiNX or RajNX. Then use the same SX pro dongle you are using on your first Switch to boot it (so that you don't need to buy an extra USB-C cable).

    To use the SX pro dongle, grab the SX Gear boot.dat on the Xecuter site, then rename the ReinNX/RajNX payload file to payload.bin. This will make the SX Pro dongle autoboot that payload.

    Total additional cost: $0

    so Sx pro with hekake.bin should be fine ?
    on last question about transfering SD card as I'm gonna change the SDcard from my first switch (128 Go to 400 Go). Can I put all of my actual data (from the 128) to the 400 Go and put in Inside my first switch and voilà ?

    SX Pro with hekate.bin is fine, upgrading the SD file is easy, just copy your files to PC and put them back in the new SD card.

    Where are you getting the switch from? cause i've got the tablet only for 60$ +12$ shipping, your seems pretty expensive.

    Sure, but then OP needs to keep changing the payload.bin if OP wants to continue to use SX Pro with OP's original Switch, which I thought was the intention.

    What? No. Original Switch has SXOS boot.dat on it, secondary Switch has SXGear boot.dat and ReiNX/RajNX payload.bin. Dongle would be interchangeable between both with no additional work.

    Help a brother out, where did you find one that cheap?

    Now, you could create a custom boot.dat and put that on the sdcard of your 2nd switch so that the SX Pro boots your 2nd switch to hekate and your first switch to SX OS.
