    Hmm, I expected them to not have color info and look like a grey #555555, but these look darker indeed.

    I will consider it. I'll need to create a new color dialog first. The windows default is crap..
    I don't know when though..

    Any idea if there is a way to change the image of the switch controller cuz it would be cool since I have a dpad mod on my left joycon. Also it would be nice if the program let you type in the color hex colors.

    Thank

    Unfortunately no.
    You can use bootcamp or a virtualbox if you want though. (And pass-through the built-in or stick BT adapter).

    Nope, as it is out of scope of this app.
    About the hex values, I'll probably design a new color dialog if my free time allows it..

    When I finished editing my Left Joycon, I accidentally wrote my incomplete work to the Joycon and closed the program. When I try to pair it to my computer, it says 'Paired' but the program is saying that the Joycon isn't paired with my computer. Somebody, please help me.

    As stated before, if you connect the joy-con to Switch, you need to fully re-pair it again with PC. Remove it from the devices and add/pair it again.

    This is because your PC keeps the pairing info but the Joy-Con, now, has a new pairing info with Switch. Because windows bluetooth manager is crap, you need to remove then pair it again, instead of just re-pairing it again (like linux for example).

    Can someone please help me? I was able to connect and change my left joycon no problem. However now my right joycon even though connect through Bluetooth says it’s disconnected every time I try to Dump spi or write the color... I can not get it to work.

    Update just used a different computer and it worked.

    Thanks a ton for this. Really irritated me that the image didn't reflect the custom white shells!

    Pity it's not possible to modify the colour of individual buttons but still awesome!

    Thanks again!

    If you are using windows you have to remove the device from Bluetooth settings.

    Probably not, I doubt they use the SPI chips or whatever the official controllers use. I'd assume you could check by trying to calibrate the control sticks in system settings and seeing if it lets you, if not it probably means there's no storage chip in it.

    I don't think this is true, if it was anyone who used a new joycon colour on old updates would get banned cause their switch would register it as a fake colour.

    Nice! Just a question, does this make me lose my warranty on the joycons or is it safe?

    No. However, when returning them to Nintendo for what reason please flash them back.
