I'm trying to send an RCM payload to my Switch but nothing detects it, and when plugged into my PC it shows up in the device manager as "Unknown USB device (device descriptor request failed)".
I've read all the other threads and posts here on reddit and nothing seems to work for me.

  • The Cable is fine. I can transfer data between my phone and my PC
  • The Drivers I assume are fine. I have a second Switch that shows up correctly as "Nintendo Switch" in Zadig and the Device Manager.
  • The correct pins are bridged for entering RCM (1 and 10)
  • It shows up in Zadig as unknown USB device.
  • The switch can charge and dock correctly.

Is it the USB C port on the switch or is something corrupted digitally? This is frustrating me beyond belief and I'm not going to buy another switch just to hack. I'm not sure if I should just give up or take it to a cellphone repair shop and have the USB port replaced.

Have you previously been able to send payloads on it before?
Are you sure its an rcm hackable model(non patched)?
Are you sure your in rcm mode(after attempting to turn it on, it still remains on a black screen)?

I bought it on launch day. I was able to send payloads to it around 2018. I have never sent it to Nintendo for repairs.

I already said the correct pins are bridged and it enters RCM mode. (The USB plugged in sound effrct plays on Windows)
