    soldering was easy enough 0.6 mm solder could really have been smaller i got frosted joints but my tip isnt the cleanest and i had overflow

    didnt realise how long a nand dump would take so waiting all year to reassemble

    Paypal doesn't allow the sale of modchips as they come under, "items that infringe or violate any copyright, trademark"

    The paypal account TXswitch are using is something like "[email protected]". In order to disguise the transaction from Paypal you are instructed to 'not leave any information about products and website after Paypal payment'.

    The paypal account they are using is probably disposable.

    Trying to getting money back from Paypal when you've bought a banned item, deliberately obscured the nature of the transaction and colluded with the seller in doing so is not going to work.

    There is literally no insurance at all if something bad happens. Chalk it up to a bad decision.

    I also used txswitch they cant use paypal through normal means for obvious reasons. I had to pay to a @123.com email which is china specific.

    Other sites like mod3ds are unable to accept anything other than Mastercard and then they ramped price up to stop buyers.


    Out shopping 50% into my dump when left.

    These screws really are ridiculous

    I have 2 phillips adjacent to the charger, 2 phillips on the joycon rails and one bottom right tri wing to remove. All are impossible to remove. I guess i have to invest in a drill to have any chance of removing the backplate -_-

    i just feel like ripping it off

    i had no problem removing them, i used the screwdrivers i got for when i replaced joycon shells and a small amount of pressure worked fine.

    my triwing from 2008 worked better tho even though its way larger

    perhaps you’re one of the lucky ones with a switch that was manufactured with the screws not so tightly in place

    just done a quick google and i see that so many people have the problem of stripped screws on their switch

    mine we so tight, when twisting, the screwdriver just kept digging into the screws and they simply wouldnt turn, which eventually wore them away and stripped em

    No one is going to "already have the chip". you'll have to order yourself or give them some time to get one shipped in... that is if you can find someone willing to install in the first place.

    Yes I know is disposable

    But this is only for the seller, I'm covered even if it's fake, they will ban the account and paypal give my money back.. this is better than just a transfer

    I have emails and messages than relate this account to this shop

    And also this is no ilegal I just want to use this modchip to load android :D

    Received my SX Core from Elewelt today :)
    Soldering points looks doable, it's the same size as a xenogc for gamecube.

    How new or old is your switch? Wondering if they are tightening the screws down tighter to discourage people from getting inside. Could even be using locktite. I haven’t tried to disassemble my switch. Hope it goes ok!

    hmmm you might be on to something, who knows. My switch is quite new, only bought it a couple of months ago from a retailer, brand new. It’s a mariko switch

    my hatred against nintendo has increased over the last few weeks. If they are indeed doing this then wow

    Just tried on my switch (bought last month).
    I had to use a PH0 instead of PH00 on the top screw as I was starting to damage the head with the smallest screwdriver tip but I managed to unscrew it. the other phillips screw came without too much effort.
    I only had a PY0 for the triwings and it worked too (a little hard since this tip almost too big for the hole).

    Now I just have to receive my modchip (bought june 11 on elewelt, shipped with yanwen express to france, still in transit)
