    it's good if you don't care about the license
    but if you want SXOS then the chip is really only $20 i don't think it will be much less than that if it gets cloned and sold without SXOS licence

    Gratz you quoted potential dmg with static which would that some extreme bad luck and conductivity to cause.

    I see august has never heard the term grounding even though its even partially mentioned in that quote and its whole purpose is to negate what he mentions.


    But hey he can just derail the thread 3 times over about how pirating nintedo is good, then about how the mod is too hard since he could static, then to about how hes never gonna touch his switch and a random story about why classic games are good.

    keep going how all your posts are "high grade contents"

    hehehehe
    It's fine I think he means the 50 dollars you paid, 20 from the chip and the rest for the license, but it's fine.. 50 is the normal price for this product.. I saw some stores selling it for almost 70 euros

    How can i get in touch with you? not sure how to start a private conversation on this website. Want you to do my install when/if these ship. I will tell you though this situation really brings back memories of the old xbox mod chips used to be good times :)

    Burned off a cap

    Replacing it is easier than the actual SX install

    I also noticed some solder splash over 1 of the big anchor solder points

    Send them in to me for correct installs

    using a $5 30w soldering iron which can only go mx at all times

    meanwhile i have a £8 usb soldering iron that maxes out at 8W and has an actual toggle to turn it off,

    but yeah his solder iron and flux application/solder were a nono it was heavy and was forcing him to constantly heat the caps
