    Hi Everyone,

    I decided to install a custom firmware on my low serial switch (Not my first switch to use CFW on),
    When I plug the jig and plug the USB-C on my PC,
    PC doesnt detect a driver and no sound come out of the PC (Though the switch will be charging if the RCM is not enabled),
    I have changned the PC and the Cable, the same issue appeared I even removed the APX driver and installed it again and it didnt work,
    However the same set up on my second switch works just fine, is this a common and is there is a fix for it?

    Try cleaning the port with isopropyl alcohol and a toothbrush. Might just be gunk on the data lines.

    Patched switch has nothing to do with RCM. It will still detect in a PC you just cant tegrasmash it.

    I tried it as well, but I may need to do it in a better way.

    Just to be sure, can you try another cable? It however sounds like something with the port itself is damaged. Does it work in a dock for example?

    I checked several USBs/PCs and the same, issue started with the "usb device not recognized" so I siwtched the Switch off by pressing 12 second on the power and plugged it to the dock, all was good on the dock but when I plugged the switch back to the PC nothing happen on the RCM mode and on the OFW it charges normally but no driver detected on the PC,
    As you said this seems to be the Port.

    Two different PC's and USB cables can recognize my Switch after I installed the libUSBK drivers on both of them. So it can't be because the USB cables or USB ports are bad.

    Try using other cables or ports.
