    Im gonna go out if topic, can anyone recommend me a soldering iron kit for this specific task(micro soldering). What thermal paste to use etc. I’m willing to brick(if i fail) a lite/v2 just for the sake of learning so no need to tell me to go to a professional(it’s also hard to look for someone who does this in my area )

    Before you ruin an expensive bit of tech. Why don't you look at purchasing a few test practice boards? Have a look for SMD boards, and specifically ones which come with the components.

    I'm in the UK but I'm sure you can pick something like this up in the US too - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Gikfun-Welding-Practice-Soldering-Training/dp/B00VWB8F8K

    As for stations, you're going to want something temperature controlled and it all depends on how much you're willing to pay. A good option at a reasonable price is the KSGER T12 station, you will also need to look at purchasing some additional tips. I picked mine up from Banggood but I know other similar sites sell them.

    Maybe watch a few youtube videos too, through-hole soldering is easier the SMD but I'd suggest learning both.

    +1 for using those surface mount practice kits. Also take apart old bits of kit and practice soldering wires/ribbon cables etc. To existing components. Have fun while you're at it

    This is pretty much what we already had. Not entirely sure on the diff but I would guess if there are any its at boot. Once in HOS its exactly the same as we had

    Single boot not safe

    Dual boot is safe - Done almost 2,000 switch mods and no bans on dual boot with both TX/Hekate kosmos/Atmos

    So to prevent ban what are best practices? You could keep the switch always offline when running CFW.

    But is SXOS’s stealth mode sufficient, or maybe 0 out your switch’s serial number and blocking Nintendo Servers also needed?

    Thanks for the advice, I just ordered this kit to test soldering on. Seems they have it on Amazon in the US too when I searched.

    Not a problem. There's a lot of good videos and information out there about the basics, if you need any more information then just drop me a message.
