    Hi,

    My SX OS PRO dongle stops working at boot time.
    RCM mode is on.
    If I start the Switch over Payload and am in the switch,
    the light shines red with the dongle. What does red mean?

    If I remember, a red light is low battery. Charge the dongle for 30 seconds with the Micro-USB cable and you should be fine.

    You can do about 5-10 boots before you have to charge again.

    Thank you!

    30 seconds bring nothing.
    The light must be green?.
    The next time it's plugged in, it's still red.
    It will flash red over time.
    The dongle is getting hot, should I let him charge even longer?

    No, it's only charging capacitors so only needs 30 secs. Then will last roughly a week or 10 boots.
    I can't see why it would get warm, mine doesn't.

    Okay, will load it longer, or several times.
    Does the lamp have to be green?

    It should be green if you charge it. Its off when you plug it into the switched of Switch and turns green after you go into RCM mode.

    charge it with the usb C, plug it into the switch while on the main menu. it should charge in between 5 to 15 seconds. the micro USB is only for firmware updates
