    well that's one reason why i bought the sx pro, tx were first with the complete package of os/dongle and rcm jig.
    i think i paid just over $50 shipped, but if you bought the dongle and rcm jig from someone else, separately , then you'll pay 2 lots of postage. it made sense to just buy the complete package. I've got nothing against ReiNX or Atmos or even the dongle you bought. choice can only be a good thing

    But you get an rcm jig plus the dongle for 14 euro/dollar and if you use the new customer coupon it will only be 10 euro/dollar plus it has an RCM jig clipped in the dongle itself

    Yeah but I was using autorcm till now but my reed switches arrived today so just got done installing one. Never again because those tiny ribbon cables were a bitch to put back. The soldering by itself was an easy job but it took so long before I assembled it back again because of the tiny ass ribbon cables. Guess my hands are 2 big lol. But glad that I'm done with using jigs and Autorcm. Glad that I installed one

    i was going to use a reed switch but I didn't think it was worth all the trouble because I only turn off the switch when i'm taking out the sd card to put more games on or delete some. I've only used the dongle about 15 times in 3 months.

    I use it a lot of times actually since I never use sleep mode since I always have it in my backpack so I wanted a proper way of turning it off without using a jig hence the reed switch. It just depends if it suits your need ofcourse.

    I was going to, till I saw this in their description:

    "Note:we don't accept return for any reason because one piece can be bound to one console only,pls consider carefully before buying."

    Don't worry about that, I saw that most aliexpress sellers put that on their page. It's just copy paste from the Xecuter website. The atmosphere-+

    I will probably order it.....lol I have been ordering and trying all the cheapo injectors off Ali just to check them out. I figure I will be modding some friends/family Switch's in to coming months so having some of these low cost injectors to give away will be a plus. I have now tried the RCM-X86 v3 unit and the NsAtmosphere. This looks like a clone of the NS but I would likely recommend the NS just because it has a power switch and external reset button. I also appreciate their website which has decent turorials and they also have a ReinX package with everything you need pre built for easy download and deploy. Really for $15 you can't do better.

    Yeah I just got mine today. Took 4 weeks to get here and the USB-C port on the dongle doesn't work but using a USB mini to USB-c adapter worked.

    Just received mine last night. Took two weeks as OP and others have mentioned.
    I only had time to flash it and try it once. I'll use it more as time allows it.
    But from what I saw it seems to work pretty well, and flashing was fairly straightforward.

    Just got mine today, 3 pieces actually. Ordered them last Nov.29 via Aliexpress Direct. Performance-wise, it does what it's intended to do. Cosmetic-wise, they could've done a better job but all in all I'm satisfied.
