Hi.

I'm following the Switch homebrew guide & succesfully grounded pin 9 & 10. My Switch is in RCM, I installed TegraRCMGUI (my OS is Windows 10) & installed the driver.
Then I connected my Switch to the PC & it's not recognized. The connection sound plays & the switch stays dark, however it says "unknown USB device" & nothing shows up on TegraRcmGUI.

I used a different cable, no changes.

I tried Rekado on my android phone, there the switch doesn't show up at all.

I tried to install libusbK via Zadig, doesn't work either.

I used a different Windows 10 computer, the same issue.

When I connect the Switch in normal mode with the same cables, everything works fine.
What's going on? I'm pretty desperate right now. Should I sell the Switch & buy a new one? Do you have any suggestions?

Help pls!

*If your phone/computer isnt detecting rcm, how do you know your in RCM mode?
*Have you checked your serial number to see if your switch is patched?
*Have you checked the cable your connecting your switch to the computer with works?

Try using a different OS such as Windows 7.

With Rekado, some android phones like the OPPO need to enable USB OTG in the settings menu before it works.
Just connecting without USB OTG will not work.

But first of all please check that the Switch is an unpatched model.
