First off, I'm not trying to step on anyone's toes here, but I do see a market coming very soon and Id like to be a part of it. Lets face it, Team Xecuter will provide an ultimate solution and it will most likely require a lot of soldering (YT "Xecuter Mod"). No, you dont know me, I've spent my 2 years here as a lurker, but hopefully the pictures I have attached below can show some sign of my legitimacy. My service fee is $100 (excluding parts) and it comes with a 30 day warranty (NOT hardware/software damage done by you). All devices will be tested both before and after soldering, shipping to me will be handled by you, shipping to you will be handled by me (standard).

Selling goods and services outside the trading area is against our rules. This thread is only open because of the following discussion. / Issac

LOL... The professional company where I RGH my X360 was like half with the chip included and a few months of warranty.

You better spend 100$ on a hooker than paying that for just soldering a chip.

Even a professional reballing of like PS3\X360... Cost half of that and gets a higher melting point solder and corrosion resistant and made with huge expensive equipment.

All I'm saying is that your gonna need micro soldering, have you guys seen the size of the switches PCB? if you think you can get this better/cheaper somewhere else then by all means, do it! I'm leaving a stamp because I see a high likelihood of the need. My solder is shiny because it is not oxidized, I prefer to use SN63/PB37. (PS, all reballs use lead)

why don't we wait and see what it is before you advertise your shiny solder? :rofl2:
"Cost half of that and gets a higher melting point solder and corrosion resistant and made with huge expensive equipment."
was why shiny was said. "Sn63/Pb37 is a eutectic alloy with a melting point of 183°C (361°F). Typical applications are wave soldering and plating where Sn63/Pb37 is primarily used as a coating for corrosion protection, and as a base for soldering."

We don't even know if it's a modchip yet. Hell, given how fucking tiny the Switch is, and how delicate it is, it could just be something you pop into the usb-c port as a dongle to install it or some shit. Who really knows at this point? Maybe it's some external thing that doesn't require fucking up your system.

That said, you're obviously trying to spread your services, and I suppose that's not a bad thing if it is a modchip, but hey, let's not jump the gun, yeah?

For how small the Switch is, so few people are going to go after this if it's something you solder on. I think they would want as many people to get this as they can if it is a chip. At least be solderless. I can understand the Xbox since from the videos I've seen, soldering wouldn't be too difficult, but if you're limiting to people who solder that small, they're not going to make much out of it, because people would rather learn to solder for this than pay hundreds of dollars to do something for them while the chip itself would be pretty cheap on its own. If it's a software based mod, I'd love to see how it is compared to Pega.
