    For what I can see:

    - 5 Solder Points (5V / GND for Power, D+ / D- for sending a payload, R for grounding pin 10)
    - Some kind of MCU to orchestrate all the logic

    Nice.

    They’ve always done software based exploit. Haven’t found any hard mods besides this one

    Not really a fan of effectively soldering a USB dongle inside your Switch permanently when doing it externally is so much safer and easier. Plus with this installed you'll most likely not be able to use the dock or USB OTG.

    I recently seen someone who does tiny smoldering, does that count

    but yeah I'm guessing that design is very early, they could probably end up making it 1/4 that size, but with usb dongles being so user friendly I wouldn't expect hardware mods to be all that popular

    My bet is on this being an internal "dongle".
