    Im perhaps hoping for a Team Rebug SwitchMe UP one unless theres a better one (where can I buy one btw)
    and once received, is there any tutorials on what to do with it (I have soldering stuff, noob but I know just enough)

    I gues on earth.
    You have trinket m0, rebug switchme, custom one from Aliexpress or someone else or you can even strip down the sx pro dongle and use that.
    This thread has probably the most install diagrams and info you can find.

    No having to use a jig or push payload via injection

    Coldboot for quite some time. It might be only possible for up to 3.0.1.

    Get a trinket m0. There's no reason to buy a chip from any specific company. Support is better with arudino devices.

    Look at the modchips forums here there is always a thread at the top from mattytrog with support on install.

    Depending on how your soldering skills is, I would say decide whether to do it yourself or have someone else do it for you, Trinket M0 is an excellent choice.

    I used a RCMX86 thats cost about $12 from china had it in 10 days its probably the smallest option and easy to fit inside the switch’s case

    As for soldering that can be hard without the right tools and alot of practice first. I did mine under a electric microscope

    You should also look into emmc upgrade too that way you get the most of your switch

    I purchased an RCMX86 mainly as I have seen videos using it and with the trinket m0 id have to take off the led + usb which will probably be a bit too difficult for me considering my soldering lvl.
