    TX have today announced they have shipped out samples of both their SX Core and SX Lite modchips to the previously selected reviewers and testers.
    Unfortunately for the less experienced modders, some soldering will be required, but we should hopefully have more information as reviewers and testers receive their samples. Until then, TX reminds you to stay safe and get ready to enjoy, releasing some exciting pictures of the retail packaging!

    Now I feel the urge to get a Switch Lite even thought I have a V1 Switch. I wonder when are we going to actually see the setup and how much skill is needed. I guess we have to wait for the reviews!

    This is nice and all I just wonder how Nintendo is going to react now. Non patches units can use fuse-glee and patched units can use the modchips.

    Will there be an upgraded dongle version for newer consoles in the future, or is THIS the future? Not including shipping and assuming the customer provides the console, do we know how much installers would charge for installation?

    Any more technical details released? I'd love to know how brick proof this is. Does it glitch the boot loader or the boot rom because if it's the former then it would mean downgrading to an older version of hos which requires fewer e-fuses will brick you. Either way I'm probably picking one of these up if Nintendo hasn't lost my switch during the RMA process.

    Edit: I'd also really like to know if you need to reball the nand on the Switch lite but I guess we'll find that out as soon as testers get theirs.

    Free market. It's not for chip creators to decide on this.

    The more avenues the better. Looking forward to the success of this hardware. I can solder, though just the easier stuff. Have the mentioned the price yet?

    Finally some information. Thanks.

    It's confirmed, Switch Lite needs soldering... well I'm not confident in myself doing the soldering.

    Can't wait for this to be reverse engineered!

    My bet is using a FPGA/CPLD to watch the NAND access to glitch the CPU at a specific time.

    Yes, It's up for pre orders at around 50 to 60 dollars.

    I don't understand why people keep saying things like this. I have a patched Switch. I soft modded it a while ago. It wasn't hard.
