    Added to the main post:

    Before you get too excited, please be aware that the payload injection feature is currently not guaranteed. Due to the recent popularity of my projects and recent information I've been made aware of regarding TPM laws, I've decided to seek legal counsel as to the lawfulness of including this feature. It may be included, it may require an update after you receive it, or I may not support it at all. In such a case, the USB adapter would officially only be used for firmware updates for the DragonMMC, and modification of the device by any user to add additional functionality would be unsupported. Discussion surrounding this would also be banned from any of my official channels. I do not support piracy and want to keep my projects legal!

    You can already do that using a Trinket M0. It's not solderless like this proyect tho, and it just handles the payload injection, and nothing else.

    I'm fully aware of this and that's why I asked whether it can be done with DragonMMC as well. :)
    At least I was hoping so. And I'm happy that it's the case.

    It triggers RCM
    It does lots more besides ;)

    BTW if nobody has seen yet, when messing around with eMMCs, GPT tables can be sorted quite easily for bigger eMMCs...

    Please correct me if I am wrong, this is a feature for the current unpatched switches. Not a solution to Mariko units.

    With that you manage to replace the EMMC and the MicroSD with an HDD, I buy you several units.

    You are correct. Reloads creator might be working on something though

    Hey Matty, hoping you can help me with something - I'm toying around with UF2 firmware upgrades via the Switch USB port and the solderless adapter board I'm making. I was planning on firmware updates being possible with the Switch powered off to avoid USB conflicts, but I'm noticing that while powered off, inserting a USB cable causes the Switch to be powered back on, no matter how it was shut down. This is true with both AutoRCM and without. Obviously I want to avoid two USB devices talking on the same bus, but iirc using the Switch USB port for firmware updates was a feature of some internal modchips. Do you happen to have any idea how this is done?

    OHMYFUDGINGGOD!

    Sign me up for one of these! This is a simply genius idea! And the ability to have multiple microSD in one console is amazeballs!!

    I can answer part of it.
    Yes, the Switch will ALWAYS power-on when you plugin the charger. It doesn't matter if it's AutoRCM or a vanilla unit.
    I'm not sure why it does but it do.

    I will definitely be getting one, regardless of if it can do payload injection out of the box or not. The hardware holding multiple SD and swapping them via flick of a switch beats carting around loose SD and removing and replacing them and rebooting....

    operating on the assumption that it is all technically legal

    in a sense it is not necessarily about legality, because even if it is legal, nintendo has the resources to make things they don't like go away if you don't have the resources to fight back.

    i am not a lawyer, but i have seen things like this happen.

    on the other hand, and this is where i am just optimistically speculating, since this project (i presume, based on your github) is open source and permissive, i think that the target may be decentralized such that even nintendo doesn't have the resources to file enough spurious lawsuits to stop it

    What is so complex about using a knife to cut out holes for the chip?

    That's not what would happen. I'd be getting custom heat shields made by a sheet metal stamping company. You can't just "cut out holes" in the existing heat shield to make it work, the fitment is a lot more complex than that. Besides, I'm not about to hack up a bunch of OEM heat shields - if I make them, I'm going to make them properly.
