Hey guys!
Just wanted to share my way of implementing the RCM jig.

Since i didn't want to order a jig online, nor try and fail with paper clips i tought it would be an easier method if i just added the " home button " to the console.
I had some old mouse parts lying around. So i disassembled the console, took the joycon rail apart, soldered a utp cable wire to the 10th pin, routed it around in the casing. Drilled a hole in the aftermarket plastic case and added a button. The ground for the button is the ground of the SD card reader. I want to cut down from the height of the button so it will be more flush with the casing, but i find it way more handy to have the button on the console, than fiddling around with the rcm jigs and the joycon.

Cheers.

In hindsight, i could have put the button over the spongy material pressing down on the sd card connector, and have the button only accesable when i open up the flip stand.

Good idea, but now your shell is destroyed.
Thats why I put the button behind the right joy-con releaee button. It works great and is invisible.
I have shown people the switch itself, noone really noticed it. Probably because of the clear case.

Excellent work!
And I have to say it's a much better alternative than the tinfoil joycon thingy.
Entering RCM with the click of a button, how convenient can that be.
