Installers need to stop advertising on gbatemp. Nintendo have been getting moderators to delete peoples comments. Also, multiple people have already gotten cease and desist letters. I would not trust gbatemp to not hand over personal info to Nintendo.
Incorrect, we haven't handed over anything. Since we're in no obligation to do it. We actually only removed comments when the actual author asked us to delete them because said company tell THEM to remove all their correspondence.

These type of services does not constitute crime as long as you limit yourself to soldering/modifying hardware. The console is yours and you can solder whatever you want on it. Crime is to use backups of games you don't own. Nintendo is doing it's job protecting its business. The thing is that they do it threatening people but if they go to court there's nothing to rely on...

Anyway installers should also be more discret to not expose themselves and customers here and other forums. You should limit these things to other secure means that currently exist
We got a section where people need X amount of posts. They should probably on kept it in there.

Sounds like you should delete your account then mate, if GBAtemp is so corrupt.

C&D letters from Nintendo.

yeah OK C&D but for what though , installs but why is his account now gone from here
C&D is BS anyways totally toothless scare tactic
he could have ceased advertising installs i get it but why did he delete his account or was it deleted?
i notice some posts here "removed at request of Nintendo"
honestly i think that was a bad move, and a slippery slope i would have told them to fuck off, because now where will they stop? honestly i am sure they would like to request 90% or more threads on this site be removed , i would not have given them an inch

I'm sure it is. But are you going to give him the money to actually fight it when they sue him?

He's putting the firmware on the chip and installing the SX OS on the Switch's. There's a reason the TX website isn't allowed to be linked here. It contains copyrighted Nintendo software/keys.

If he was able to install the chip and that's it, and made the end user do everything software wise, then he might have a leg to stand on. But again, you need funds to fight a lawsuit. Even if you are in the right.

You're free to start your own install service and fight Nintendo if you want.

nah i don't have that talent and would not want to be liable for breaking consoles/chips
all i am saying is was there really a need for his account to be deleted and for him to disappear from here?
why couldn't he just have stopped advertising his services , seems a bit extreme to go into hiding over a BS C&D

but yeah he was selling the chips too essentially i provided my own but i did see that he was offering instal packages with the chip included

Well if he doesn't stop following the cease and desist, he get a lawsuit.

Maybe he no longer wanted to give support to people sending him messages about chips/installs.

The best way to just be done with everything is to just delete your account.

I could have easily deleted my account but fuck that its 10 years old.

I requested my posts deleted because it was easier than editing that content
I even requested any vouches for my repairs etc removed because even if the site they used for reference was another i may as well remove traces they could use.

But yeah the most i can do now is repair switches and replace sp1 and sp2 smds that people have damaged.

I can do console mods in the sense that If I was sent a switch/switch lite

I could solder the flex cables / nand flex and replace the thermal.

But physically installing the chip itself i cannot you would have to attach that yourself to the flex and screw the console together.
Same for the switch lite chip you would have to solder the last 2 points which is easy.

Obviously I would charge less. Like £35 + postage costs for this kind of job since all I'm doing is soldering a flex that a user sends me.
And prob the going rate if it was a repair to sp1/sp2 ontop

This would be doable as I would have no involvement in actual tpm bypasses as I had not touched said device and the software required to setup it isn't involved with me.

Maybe if atmosphere actually did a release for sxcore/lite. I would go back doing full at the normal rate installs as it doesn't really violate anything


But yeah C and D is a bummer. I never even sold chips but rather not take the risk doing full installs only repairs and the afore-mentioned

Glad you stayed :)

I actually need my switch repaired, got a bad install with a trinket from someone and a non working left joycon rail. Would you be able to help with this?

Well, I would say that depends in how skilled you are, if you have the right tools and knowledge
I mean i've done both. I'm just saying not being able to see pins versus being able to see everything you solder makes it harder. or at least more annoying. Then you have to see if it is the power chip or usb port, so there is more troubleshooting involved. I wouldn't say either are tremendously hard, I was just saying that most people can probably learn how to do the chip themselves with relatively inexpensive equipment. Where with a usb port you need a hot air rework station. your comment is like saying a pizza is as easy to make as a pb and j you just need more ingredients and an oven.

Have less than 5 posts so can't send pm. Please send by pm and would be able to reply with link to the seller I bought to. Arrived to EU in one week, no customs. Installed and worked. Advise you to buy a digital microscope, flux, good quality soder (0,5 mm) and mx4 thermal paste. It was a 2h30 job for me and must be done with calm. You can follow modzvilleusa guide on youtube
Sorry for late reply, but i was able to find someone trusted on Aliexpress and bought it from him, thank you anways! :)
