I have a switch that my friend gave me to attempt to fix, been sitting on it for over a year on it and though I'd try again
It got washed in the washer, in it's current state, it turns on fine, gets to the Nintendo logo then nothing after that.
It is a unpatched unit and I can get it in RCM mode, sending any payload just sends part of the payload then locks up.

If anyone has any ideas, or any chips that should maybe be replaced that would be amazing.

Clean it with ultra sonic cleaner + ipa (alchohol) 70+ will do or really will with a toothbrush and ipa. Dry it up with an air compressor or compressed air can. Check for shorts around M9T236 ic.

    they seem to be getting worse
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    Yeah it seems to have been a pretty rough few weeks/months for spam. Sadly I don't have access to or insight into why/how it's getting past the spam prevention measures we have in place :(
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Disgruntled banned members probably writing script batches
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    Eh I don't think it's that, the content of the spam isn't all that different than what we've been seeing for the past like... decade. I'd imagine if it was a disgruntled banned member then the content would be different, not crypto recovery and illuminati shaman scams lmfao
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Never know
  • AdenTheThird @ AdenTheThird:
    Catboy brought up the idea of a new staff tier specifically for anti-spam to combat the issue, as several of us have noticed it getting worse with no apparent changes to prevent it. Any chance of this happening, or at least introducing a limit to the number of threads new users can post? @Sicklyboy

    135357153715613756 posts by a single member in a short period of time? that seems like a task that would be better handled by a bot than a human

  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    A new staff group isn't really needed
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    That can go bad say they make the new staff group and then start blaming that specific member for not keeping up with spam removal
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    @AdenTheThird, wish it wasn't the case but I unfortunately have no insight into that nor the ability to implement/change anything like that

    Global Moderators don't have that kind of config access

    If anything normal mods should just be brought back
  • AdenTheThird @ AdenTheThird:
    A limit on how many threads new users can start should be put in place. Simple, non-intrusive, gives mods plenty of time to respond to spam before they can do it again.

    It's just becoming more and more of an issue and I don't see it stopping until preventative measures are taken.
