    On the heels of their massive success on pre-orders for their SwitchMe internal dev board, plans are in works for a dongle:

    RebugDongle.

    Team Rebug has been overwhelmed with the support they have been getting for the pre-order launch of their SwitchMe internal dev board, as such they have just recently announced plans on their Twitter for an upcoming SwitchMe external dongle, which they are calling an Xecuter SX PRO on steroids. :)
    @evilsperm is saying they are about a month away from launching the 'dongle' version, but so far its looking great, and with the massive support and quality they are putting into the internal version that will be landing with resellers in few weeks, we can't wait to see how amazing their dongle version will be, plus they are saying it will be 'cost priced' affordable like their internal dev board is. :)

    Dongle is still better because it's easier to use and inject payload on the go.

    Nice where the preorder link
     
  8. I'd buy one. My main concern with the TX Pro dongle is that the caps die and then I'm screwed while out and about because my phone doesn't support payload launching and I don't always have a computer with me. Plus, replaceable CR2032 battery!

    Hell, I paid $40 just for TX's dongle. (No interest in the OS at all.) I'd pay about the same for this one too.

    The dongle is a lot smaller and more convenient to carry around than a phone and a USB C cable

    You carry a phone regardless

  11. That isn't a very good argument. I don't always carry a USB-C cable. Also, my phone won't send payloads.

    What does this have over the Xecuter SX Pro? I already have a SX Pro, would this be worth buying?

    I'm looking forward to this esspecially if it's going to be much cheaper than the SX Pro since that costs $80 to get in my country, I know you can use a phone which I have been using but there is a convienience to having something small just plug in and work without needing to get cables out.

    It's basically an all-in-one trinket m0 + lilypad coincell holder + usb-c adapter. I made myself one of these on the cheap and works flawlessly.

    This has the added advantage of not having to carry extra adapter cables (in my case micro-usb -> usb-C) and of course, the build quality and sturdiness of a factory made PCB.
    Might be a great option for the ones that are unable to get affordable trinkets or lack the soldering skills or equipment.

    The info is there on the post. This is my home-made dongle based on a Trinket m0 + Lilypadpad CR2032. It's a trivial build. Just connect trinket's BAT pin to Lilypad's +, GND to - and you're good to go. There are a couple of mirrors with the trinket m0 payload implmentation for both Hekate and SX OS variants. Pick your poison or compile the code yourself.
