    Just over a week ago, team Xecuter announced that they are working on a soon-to-be-revealed modchip for the Nintendo Switch. This was big news because modchip devices are usually used to circumvent anti-piracy measures on many digital platforms, but mainly gaming systems, and to see one already in the works for a machine that is only 10 months old is very rare.

    Since then the team have been quiet, no one knows what the device will look like, how it will work, or when they can get their hands on one - but GBAtemp can exclusively reveal today that there will be BOTH a solder AND solderless option of team Xecuter's Nintendo Switch modchip.

    Here is a direct quote from team Xecuter:


    The difference in pricing should be interesting in the two versions of the device, but at least you can now rest safely, knowing that the team will be providing options for whatever the Xecuter Switch modchip turns out to be.

    Stay tuned to GBAtemp for more info in the upcoming weeks.

    I imagine the solderless chip is probably a brick the size of a switch

    I'm hoping it'll be a dongle or something along those lines

    If anything the solder less is probably going to be a clip on like the PS3 used to use. Let's just hope that if it is that it isn't nearly as fragile

    Looking forward for this, solderless for me, guess that will be the more expensive option but it will reversible with no trace

    Am I the only one thinking that there must be something more useful about the soldered version than the solderless one? Why even make a soldered version if the solderless one would work just fine? What do you guys think might be the disadvantage of the solderless version?

    I wonder if that solderless option is actually some kind of Sky3DS and not really a mod chip :unsure:

    probably that the so0lderless version will cost more

    I'd bet that the solderless solution will be at least 20 dollars more expensive

    Flashcart are not really possible on the switch.

    Or the 2 different versions are for varying FW versions, like for example higher FW's may require the soldered version but the lower ones can get away with the solderless option, just throwing that out there
