    Why in one of the pictures the dongle has battery and in the other it has capacitors?

    Switching it out on the SD Card. That's how all the others work. The payload isn't actually the injector itself, it just inject a f-g payload and looks for a certain named bootfile. Like SXOS look for boot.dat

    I know that it's not the injector.
    Didn't saw/doesn't seem like there was a sd port tho.

    Nono @mariogamer. You need to have a payload on a SD-card in your Switch. That's where the injected payload look for a file.

    I'm pretty sure the pictures of the internals show it with a female micro-USB
    Where as the completed dongle has a male USB-A

    Then I meant changing the internal payload. At worse tho, I can repack the boot.dat. (And i know that too, but I don't want to leave it like that)

    There is currently a $4 coupon for first time buyers from the aliexpress app. Download it click the $4 coupon sign up a new account. Then search the dongle.
    You will get it for about $12.

    I've ordered one thanks. I will let you know in 30 days if it bricks my Switch

    ordered one too. Now, I wait.

    From the looks of it, you can plug it in a pc and put the payload.bin internally. I think thats how this works. But im just guessing.

    By the looks of it, it's a SAMD21 based board. Essentially a trinket m0 with an adafruit battery backpack and an extra USB-C port for ease of use

    it first popped up on eBay a couple weeks ago but I haven't been able to find it since. I used PayPal for payment and it charge me $0. 80 to use it. Worth it if you don't want to give up your CC number.
