    Had some of you used Team Xecuter modchips in the past?
    Can someone tell me how much a modchip usually costs?
    I’m not whining about soldering and I would take the risk if it’s needed;


    Please don’t kill me with answers like “we don’t even know if it’s going to be a modchip” or “we don’t know anything about this lol just wait u moron”

    hard to say, development costs, production, costs all play a factor, that being said modchips have ranged from $5 to $150 in the past, common more popular ones normally around $40-60

    It's most probably a modchip.

    It will probably be relatively easy to install.
    It may need a case mod to fit(Although I haven't jumped inside a switch to see 'room') But I have had external mods before.
    Price? Being first to market, and depending on the solution you could expect anywhere from US$30-75 if it requires a programmer as well(probably will). It will probably get cloned and be released cheaper(If it's easy to clone the original price will probably be cheaper than I posted).
    Is that enough speculation?

    They're a business, it makes no sense for them to research and make a software solution which would be free. While no one knows for sure, If I was to put a wager on...

    Maybe $200 installed, the original JTAG cost the installer about $2. It only really got dearer when it moved to RGH. Which needed a Glitch Chip and a Nand reader/Writer. (which paired together you could get for around US$20-30) The install cost was high because of the time involved. Even higher if you wanted a Dual Nand solution.

    Wtf if it will cost 180$ then I’m passing lol

    I rather wait one year longer for a softmod that is free and easier to install even though I’m excited for emulators and apps like kodi

    3games=$180. so the switch tag will be expensive and will probably require cutting the plastic or mounting an extra case
