    If its hardware based then yes. As for soldering iron... A hot one with a small tip should suffice :)

    Not every hardware based mod needs to be soldered. We will see when more informations are public.

    Its stated that there it can be installed without soldering but not recommended due to long term reliability concerns.

    if you are suggesting the pogo pin method then from me it's a resounding no, not an option, that method was temperamental at best with a big brick stationary console - few slaps to the bottom usually got it back - however, a mobile console is a totally different story - solder only no excuses.

    I remember pogo pins from the old xbox days... More hassle then they are worth :(

    Dont come crying when the chip slips out of place and causes a short and destroys your console. Not a question of IF but WHEN!

    I didn't said that I'd recommend the solderless method. I only said that it could be possible that another option could also work.

    A basic solder kit costs no more than $15.

    For this kind of thing, spending a little more money and getting a temperature controlled iron is the way to go. The cheap stuff tends to be low power and unregulated. So the temperature gets way too hot, but it can't retain heat long enough to make good connections.

    Get one of these chinese T12 soldering stations for ~50 bucks. They are pretty good and are compatible with original hakko tips (they are expensive. Reviews show the clone tips are fine but they may not last as long). With that thing you can pretty much get everything console modding done without a problem.

    Exactly. I got mine from Banggood but Aliexpress will do as well. It won't be as fancy, but it will do the job -- plus you don't have to worry if it stops working because you got it so cheap. Just ensure you've bought flux as well, as a typical kit does not usually include flux.

    TX Updated their SX OS to support v9.1.0 today, and they had this to say about their upcoming solution:

    So hopefully we will not have to hang on much longer! :)

    "please hang in there"

    Not native English speaker here... the use of this expression / and the words chosen, could this mean we are talking about +20 days window release or could it be sooner.

    If any of you have the xci autoloader on your sd card, your switch will crash on boot with 9.1.0 and the new 2.9.3 beta.

    Just remove the autoloader from your titles folder to resolve this trouble.

    WAIN may have to release an update for compatibility.

    The expression doesn't insinuate any specific time frame. It just means "please wait".
