    So I got a Switch tablet and nothing else, because I still had the dock, Pro Controller, cables and whatnot from the previous one I had, minus the Joy-Cons (because those were attached to the tablet I had previously, when it was stolen). Imagine my dismay when I turn it on, and it immediately requests for the non-existent Joy-Cons to be attached before proceeding.

    So I did some digging. Was it possible to bypass this somehow?

    Well, no. Not really. Not unless the Switch is somehow already hacked. Which this one isn't, YET.

    And it seems you cannot use anything BUT an official pair of Nintendo Joy-Cons. Yeah, seems even the licensed Hori (left-side only, WTF?) ones don't work. You can't even use an official Pro Controller, plugged into the dock.

    Which wouldn't be a major issue for me, really, IF.... the official Nintendo Joy-Cons were actually in stock anywhere. Most of them are on back order, as it is.

    So what are my options here? It IS a hackable model, but I'm not sure how to proceed without Joy-Cons regardless.

    Isn't your switch hackable? You don't need the switch to be booted to perform the fix linked if it's an unpatched unit. Is your switch V1 patched?

    Yeah, it's hackable. I gotta get the stuff I need to hack it in the first place, though. I ordered an RCM Loader one with a jig, but those aren't arriving until Saturday, so I think I'm just gonna have to use a paperclip to trigger the short (IF I can even find one... lol).

    EDIT: Found a paperclip, but I can't seem to figure this out. Not working for me. Bleh.
