    The prices are getting so good that there'll probably be $10 sets by the end of the year.

    won't be much help with the unhackable switches being so common then.

    being that.. my dongle and jig just arrived in Australia.. after being ordered nearly a month ago. haven't tried it yet.

    My rcm x86 seems to have stopped working, it’s either not charging or can’t detect the console. I’ve got it on charge now, it’s got a solid red light with intermittent green flashing, anyone know if this is this normal? The usb-C end feels loose enough to worry me.

    Edit: working now, plugging it into the Switch after the console had booted seemed to either wake the dongle up or charge it. It might only be charging via usb C...

    I might as well ask here, but I saw some really cheap dongles on Aliexpress called 'RCMLoader'.

    Some listing names of them (I'm not allowed to post links :sad: ):
    HeroAngel 2018 RCM Loader for NS Switch dongle SX OS Shorter Injector JIG kits
    HeroAngel Loader for Switch dongle SX OS RCM NS Injector JIG kits shorter Connect
    1PCS 2PCS 5PCS RCM Loader for NS Switch dongle SX OS RCM NS Shorter + Injector JIG kits

    Has anyone gotten one of these yet?

    I checked it out and I saw this:
    xkit.
    Seems like this is xkit.xyz's dongle.
    I LOVED their RCM jig, it's the BEST I've come across, even better than SX pro's... I'm wondering how good this is now.

    More things I noticed about xkit.xyz's dongle from these listings:
    https://www.aliexpress.com/item/New...NS-Shorter-Injector-JIG-kits/32922843755.html
    https://www.aliexpress.com/item/RCM...NS-Shorter-Injector-JIG-kits/32920740333.html

    This was unexpected... so it's internally the same as NS Atmosphere.

    BUT these two listings above, BOTH have this in the description:
    Not sure if it is just them being cheap and not accepting returns/replacements, but if it's true what they say, it's concerning how it's not like other dongles that can be used on ANY nonpatched Switch in RCM mode.

    Perhaps they are referring to SX OS for the one console thing?

    Anyone could make a dongle that used the same method for updating payload, it doesn't mean they are the same.

    But they could be the same.

    I ordered the original dongle from the first post and it took 25 days to be delivered lol. Seems they changed the color of the case to solid black so no more see through. The Jig is high quality, it put my 3D printed one to shame. The current price on the original listing is now $23!

    Got mine a few days ago. It doesn't seem to auto-reset itself after copying a file over. For example, copied their ReiNX uf2 to the dongle, but it doesn't reset, so ejected it. Then copy ReiNX bin and stuff to root of SD card. Vol + and Power gets one green flash, followed by a longer green flash on the dongle, then nothing. :unsure:

    This one mentions you can swap payloads via that button (also supports up to 6 payloads at a time) - https://www.aliexpress.com/item/fre...reak-bulit-in-3-payloads-for/32922234542.html

    Also the same one I bought but am still waiting for it to appear. Bought it as a backup mostly (and for the nicer looking jig as my 3D printed one is looking shabby) as I'll be using a SwitchMe primarily. No mention of "No refunds" on that seller's page either so could be a better one to go for.

    If anyone is looking for this dongle, you can get it for $6.25 USD shipped on Ebay, with PayPal.

    Just use the code PERKMEUP at shopping cart page. Site wide, so if you have any other dongle you want to buy, then go for it, but this is the cheapest.

    I haven't, these are fairly new to the rcm injector scene. A lot of people just recently got the (barely older) white and clear ones.

    This one supports 3 custom payloads according to the manual, which seems pretty cool. Also not worried to spend 6 dollars + PP protection. I'll update you guys.

    The code is only for eBay US.
    It can only be used with accounts that were made on eBay US.
