    SX lite is delayed further past the 16th for all resellers but I wasn't given a definitive timeframe... I told Mod3ds to just ship my SX CORE since this waiting is killing me and i already got tracking.

    I installed it today without any magnification with a cheapish ts100 iron (cost like 40-50€ on alieexpress)
    Worked first try, but I already had some experience.
    You only have to get a very tiny amount from the joint towards the capacitator - so if it doesnt work you can just readjust a bit and try again - its better to not have a connection than to shorten it


    Also whats slightly bothering me - the back of the switch gets a little buldge, it doesnt interfere with anything and you dont feel it, but you can see it.

    I haven't received mine yet, but I'll pitch in anyway. May sound weird but I'm considering using a 2mm chisel tip for this. Since the job is to pre-tin the pads and then retouch them to flow the solder onto the components, a chisel might actually make better contact with the surfaces. A 2mm would be over twice the size of those caps, though, so I'm still on the fence about it.

    This discussion already came up some 30 pages back and again about 10 pages back, so to sum it up:
    Will it work? No way to say for sure, so it's a huge maybe.
    Is it better than soldering? No.
    Is it easier than soldering? Probably not.
    Is it reliable? Again, no way to know , so another huge maybe.
    Would anyone recommend it? Doubtful. Best-case scenario you'll have the flat cables permanently attached to your console, so if the modchip fails in the future and is no longer in production, or a better alternative comes out, you won't be able to remove them.

    I didn't mean to imply that you should have read it before, sorry if it seemed that way. My intention was just to consolidate what was previously discussed for ease of reading, and in case other people had the same doubt. These conductive glue products are indeed really tempting for anyone who's not very experienced with soldering (it's an expensive console after all).

    sxflashcard.com seems to be the fastest as I've already had a few Cores come in and a lite coming in any day now.

    Is there a way to transfer saves from an old switch to the new one?
    The built in save transfer doesnt work and gateway doesnt work. Both crash (one when trying to login, other on start)

    I second this, especially the bureaucracy part. Getting a package through customs in Brazil is kind of a coin flip. If you're lucky, it'll clear in a day or two. If not, be ready to wait for a few months, and when I say a few, I actually mean anything from one to six months.

    I don’t know, in his tracking screenshot it shows tracking numbers and dates for Yanwen. And after it arrives in the destination country the tracking carriers over to the local post office system right?
