Hey all!

TX's jig has 2 pins that are close to each other. I see other jigs online where they pins are spread out further. Whats the difference?

Also, is the TX one a high quality one? Safe for repeat usage? (I am not going to autoRCM)

Thanks!

It's been a general consensus that the TX jig is the best, most high quality jig you can get. The contacts shouldn't be any different on different jigs as they are all meant to connect the same pins

The first one bridges pins 1 and 10, tx's bridges 9 and 10 I believe. Both work, and it doesn't matter either way.

you need to bridge pin 10 to ground. there are different ground pin in the controller, some are easier to use (it can brick your console if you make a wrong short circuit with another pin)
someone even use this, as long as Pin10 is grounded it works.

All jigs are different, and can be what they want to be.
They are not all meant to connect the same pins what a earth are you on about....
As long as you ground pin 10 it will work,
I see your still talking out your ass..

I Think the tx jig Shorts pins 7 and 10,as the spacing is wider..
I Could be wrong

I would like to leave this information here for you.

So long as you bridge just pin 10 off anything metal it will work :3 don't need pins 1-9 for entering rcm

You can bridge pins 10+1 or 10+7 or 10+9 (this is the worse to use as pin 9 is not 100% always ground and latest Joy-con FW detects it, so stay away from it specially for permanent shorts).

It also works pin 10+ metallic rail/screws/any metal part inside switch that is grounded... One user even reported using his skin as ground, but he never reply, so its almost likely fake and I dont think it will work with our skin even wet :).

I think he never replied cause hes a idiot and grounded him self with his skin on a power line :rofl:

Which pin short circuit is supposed to lead to brick ? I've never ever seen that in any guide.
But that seems super important

I don't think its a brick, but actual physical damage to joy-con, console or both, I think Pin 4 is the worse with 5V, no idea...

And if your talking about my post about pin 10+9 being detected by joy-con updated FW is not really that problematic, you can still use it, just don't make a permanent short on them (or use a resistor for a permanent short), but its just better to avoid it and use like 10+1 or 10+7.

The Joy-con can only detect it after the OS is loaded, which means if you have a button\magnetic switch to short only to enter RCM and then stop, you can still use 10+9, but I would still go with the others.

https://reswitched.tech/hardware/joycon <---Read this

Pin 4 is 5v,
and they say not to permanently bridge 9-10 pin, but thats on the joycon side not the rail side
Pin 10 to ground or pin 7-10 or 1-10 should be fine

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's

    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range

    "OLED's have a 3D look" no they don't lol

    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
