Wanted to do a quick write up for people on OSX. I had to ask around a lot on IRC today and wanted to share how I managed to get everything working: Step One: Install Python 3 Step Two: Install Brew Step Three: Install libusb in Terminal ('brew install libusb') Step Four: Install pyusb in Terminal (sudo easy_install pyusb) (if this doesn't work try sudo python3 -mpip install pyusb) Step Five: Download Fusee.bin and https://github.com/reswitched/fusee-launcher Step Six: Get your Switch into recovery (I had best luck stripping both ends of a decently thick copper wire I had around, like in the Fail Overflow image, and attached it to pin 10 (furthest away from the screen with the right joycon removed, and the other end attached to the metal of the fan housing at the top of the console). Power the system down and then hold volume +, press power. If you don't see the Nintendo logo you did it correctly. There won't even be a backlight. If you did it wrong keep trying. Step Seven: Run the Python payload command in terminal after you navigate to the directory you have it in, AKA sudo python3 ./fusee-launcher.py fusee.bin And you should be good to go.
