    The tester spots were all filled, and most of them had to be within Canada or the states, I say most as there were a few exceptions, myself being one of them.

    Rest assured release will be soon

    That's an incredibly novel and a surprisingly compact design, I approve of this clever tinkery! Very well done!

    I have been following this project for a while. It is great to see such dedication and love.

    Can somebody confirm that there is absolute certainty the DI pins won't damage the gamecart or the switch in any way?
    Also wondering if there is an option to ship without the screwdriver and a minimal case, if it could reduce the price/shipping costs significantly.

    Pins wise it shouldn't damage it anymore than a legitimate game card would. The attached photo is of my DI next to Breath of the Wild.

    As for your second query you would be best to ask in the discord server

    I have no idea of the current wear and tear of my game cord slot, but hopefully it won't have the same design problems as the joy sticks :glare:

    Do you perhaps know if the firmware update tool is compatible with Linux?

    Yes there is a Firmware Update Tool that will work on linux. The version in question can be found HERE. The windows version by Jerome can be found Here

    "a triple sd card kickstand, known as the DragonKicker, this idea evolved so that it will now replace the microsd board with a custom one and have a switch to change the sd card. This is also planned to tie into the dual/tri nand system Matinator is working on."

    wait what can you please go more into detail about this new dragon kicker thing

    A few questions i have are
    so the new dragon kicker is still a kickstand that you can put 3 MSD cards into but the new one actually has 3 MSD slots and a switch in it so you can tri boot , so does this work in conjunction with this internal MSD slot board you mentioned or on it's own , do you need both parts ?
    and what about the NAND replacement board, that you said is also for tri booting

    you don't need that too right that is just another separate project i assume , and that if i want to say boot between Android, SXOS , and lakka without removing the cards and just flicking a switch then i can just get this new dragon kicker
    and the internal MSD board thing , or one or the other or both? or does this new internal MSD board thing make you put the card internal under the housing?
    little confused here

    also stupid question and i think i asked it before but the DI is capable of working with SXOS right

    The kickstand will still house 3 micro SD cards, however, it will be an actual circuit connected to a modified MicroSD card reader board that has a switch on it, that barely sticks out of the OEM MicroSD card slot. (replaces the current Micro SD card reader under the shell), thus both parts will make the new kicker.

    There is also the dragonMMC which is a replacement dual/tri nand system so you can have a clean nand, cfw nand and/or android nand for example.

    This dual/tri nand system is planned to be linked to the new kicker so if you have both when you switch you switch Nand and SD card.

    When the console is turned off you will be able to switch between card slots 1 2 or 3 as well as nands 1 2 and 3. E.g 1 is clean, 2 is custom firmware and the third for android/lakka

    @MatinatorX Can explain how the new kickstands/nand setup will work better than I can


    The Dragon Injector boots whatever it finds on your microSD card in /dragoninjector/payload.bin, so you have have the SXloader in that folder renamed as payload.bin and it will launch SX, alternatively, you have folders and switch which payload is loaded.

    yup that is what i was imagining , this is a great idea so how far along is this project right now?

    "There is also the dragonMMC which is a replacement dual/tri nand system so you can have a clean nand, cfw nand and/or android nand for example."

    interesting , probably not for me as getting the switch to work with and alternate NAND is likely to be a very long complicated process of dumping and patching lots of stuff , but i am just curious if this will include different NAND size options , like 3 32GB up to 3 256GB nand chips or different capacities
    like 2 32GB and one 256 etc. if it will be custom to order or something
    i have seen NAND upgraded to 256GB i think that is the max though
    would be interesting to see different NAND size options for this

    Yes. AFAIK Matinator is focusing most of his efforts on getting the DragonInjector out first

    I think the plan was a special adaptor and payload that cloned the nand for you. Again, Matinator knows all the technical details on how it works. If you want to know more ping them in the discord server (you can access it by clicking the image in my signature)

    Wait...So the original dragonkick kickstand with just 3 microsd slots is no more?

    Matinator isn't releasing that one anymore, however, he did make the .STL for the original kickstand public.

    You can see the post with the link to the STL here.

    Note Matinators post after mine

    There were delays with printing the cases, getting art and batteries. But there might be something happening. Look at the main channel in the discord.
