    @squee666 Incognito isn't needed anymore. You can just edit the exosphere.ini file and make it blank the prodinfo. Much safer imho.

    I already checked the chip inside. What did installer do with my switch..... I may should consider to contact other installer to correct problems....
    Thank you for answer:)

    Make sure the whole chip is inside like this.

    Can you take some pictures for us to help you better?

    Make sure your nand chip is actually clipped into the SX Core modchip itself like in the picture.

    Also make sure ribbon cable is plugged in correctly into SX Core modchip.

    I am using an iOS app named Parcel. It has a subscription (around 3$ per year in my region), and works like charm. I just added this track code to the app, and the next day the info started to update. It is Yanwen, yeah:)
    I wrote to txswitch around 10 days before, to ask about any updates, but nobody answered of course ‍♂️

    Same here, I wanted to order from this reseller but they didn't respond to my question so I decided to place an order on aliexpress. I have tracking number already and it has been sent via Aliexpress Standard Shipping which is really fast so I am glad about this decision.

    In order to verify that the mod chip is installed properly you can take the MicroSD card out of the Switch and power it on, if you see the "sad" microsd card logo asking for the boot.dat file that means that the modchip is installed correctly.

    Another way to test it would be powering on the Switch and open the photos app from the menu and see it the SX menu opens.

    I know it might be confusing bc some people expects a different OS when the SX core is installed, it looks exactly the same as the original OS but with the big difference that when you open the photos app you have got access to the SX menu..

    Try those steps and let me know how it goes

    When the sx core installed, should the memory card always be inserted?

    I'm not sure why, but the website I'm using for tracking isn't giving a delivery estimate this morning. It was earlier though. If you want to track your shipment I believe this one, parcelsapp.com/en/tracking gives you the most detail for your shipment when you put in that really long destination postcode.

    A little update from me, I canceled my order at free-switch.com because they didn’t ship it or gave any information.

    So I messaged peggy.xie1 and placed my order. And she shipped it the same day.
    Very friendly and very fast!
    It’s arriving this thursday.

    Why are you guys speculating so much when the chip itself literally has a light that tells you whats wrong:
    Green - good to go
    Blue/purple - bad solder connection
    Red - no solder connection

    Also whats possible is that the nand module wasnt put into the chip, since the manual is pretty vague about it.

    Btw. yanwen isnt yanwen. The cheap yanwen from alieexpress takes months, othet sellers use the premium yanwen shipping which only takes a few days.

    Whereas you have the sucker and you don't power on the console, everything is fixable :)

    Tanwen from sxswitch is really fast, in about 7 days I had the item at home :).. I couldn't understand those people who paid 30 bucks for an ultra-mega-express delivery only to save 5-6 days

    So is it best to keep an extra sd card with all your files on it in case your sd card gets corrupted? Or is keeping them on your laptop fine, just have to reformat it and copy the files over again?

    Might be nice if SX Core had an off/on switch like the old chips on the xbox, would make it easy to make it invisible to the original firmware.

    Let me mark the lines; the file itself (the one you linked) says that is not know if it is safe to use:
