    Hey guys,

    I'm trying to hack my Switch and I can get it into RCM mode but can't get it to be detected by Windows. I know the Switch is in RCM mode as I'm able to run an old fusee gelee python script through Linux on the same laptop (using libusb, it shows up as an NVIDIA device on Linux). Any tips on how to get Windows to recognize the RCM Switch as "APX"?

    Did you install the APX drivers

    I'm not sure. TegraRcmGUI says that RCM is detected, but Zadig doesn't show my device (or any device for that matter) under the dropdown menu.

    Do you have another PC to test on by any chance? Just worried it could be a driver conflict, and that can be a bitch to fix.

    Unfortunately I don't have another PC. I'm able to use TegraRCM and load Hekate which is cool, but unfortunately my PC doesn't detect Switch RCM as an actual device connected.
