    Would you consider SX Lite? Or know anyone that does them?

    not gonna lie the switch lite doesnt look hard to solder compared to the v2 mariko, its just extra solder points on board that are way easier to solder than the cpu smds literally just pads.
    if was installing I would do the lite also as the difference is minimal

    My current solder is 60/40 rosin but looks cold for some reason no matter what I try it's a solid connection tho heres an example.
    Looks a little unclean cause I've been practicing alot on this pad but otherwise its perfect contacts

    Its defo my solder though as my other solder is coming up shiny even on lower temps.

    Atmosphere and payloads dont work due to needing updates. Ppsspp didnt work for me but could be my rom.

    Tesla and overlays and sysmodukes worked for me fine.
    Homebrew and installing nsps worked. Tinfoil works
    Installing a theme with nx installer worked

    What about incognito? Can that be used to remove serial if on V1 Patched Switch?

    Can Atmosphere work with V1 Patched Switches?

    Thanks.

    I will assume yes on both because payloads still work etc, its just v2 switches that have these issues atm

    thanks.. i'm not sure how small smd size in switch. but looking at other smd's in GPU, motherboards, looks like can be done without magnification. it looks like i need to find a magnifying glass if you say much easier with it.

    Switched retailers, reason, big delay plus more money.
    Ali Shipped, should be here by the estimated 7/06

    I'm watching stocks for Mariko. If I can get one, I'll sell my v1 patched. Really would like the almost double battery life

    Do you guys think it would be ok to break apart the backplate? I’ve managed to remove only some of the screws. I can already half-open the backplate so im wondering if i could just tear it off when some of the screws are still in place:

    the centre screw on both joycon rails
    Bottom right tri wing
    2 screws adjacent to the charger

    halp

    Fun fact: if you dont connect the solder points and just put on the chip you get a red light and the console just boots into ofw as usual.

    Had a buddy prepare his switch before coming to me for soldering and he apparently was curios what would happen.

    you could try soldering your small screwdriver to the rail scres and centre because if your rip off your backplate the that spread of plastic its gonna be harder to remove the bits

    Have you considered trying an 'easy out/screw extractor? There's a 1.3mm one in a kit on Amazon, but you might be able to buy them separately.
