    It can't be done. You can only power it on when the joycon is connected to the computer.

    Would it be possible in the future to change individual button colors?
    I'm using a white shell with the 4 different colored buttons.

    Nope. It's not worth it to even support it in CFW.
    Only if nintendo adds it.

    I'm totally new to this app, so apologies if this has been asked already, but would it be possible (in the future) for this app to enable RCM? Perhaps by holding a combination of buttons?

    I suppose that would be another ban risk.

    I used the toolkit to change my controller buttons and body but when I connected it back to my switch only the control stick works. Also, it will not connect back to the computer so I cannot restore the SPI Flash.

    You can't, because of a pull up resistor connected there. So it can't be soft modded.

    This happened to me before and I just use the option to disconnect all controllers in Settings and I also pressed the sync button once. And then the joy con paired again and was fixed magically.

    Press the sync button once to "turn off" the controller.

    Thanks for the reply.

    A bit off topic, but do you happen to know of any cool projects that make use of the IR camera?

    Try to use the disconnect button from the app.
    (After reconnecting the joycon).

    I saw in an earlier post that not all Pro Controllers have a body color of x323232 (normal one), with the Xenoblade Pro being x323132 and the Splatoon Pro being x313232.
    Now that the Smash Pro is out, would anyone be willing to supply the body color code? I have the controller but unfortunately forgot to backup the SPI before messing with its colors. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Is there (or will there be) support for other "joy-cons" such as pokeball plus or the NES joy-con controllers?

    @CTCaer I'm wondering if I can get some help with my two right Joy-Con (both firmware v3.91).

    The controllers work normally in every respect except with this app. I can open the app and see the Joy-Con colors, but as soon as I try to do anything (backup SPI, change colors, etc), it throws a "device was disconnected" error in Windows 10. It happens on every version of the toolkit and with both controllers. This seems like the same issue brought up by Rinabow on page 40. Both of these Joy-Con worked when they were on v3.48.

    Any ideas on what's happening?

    Edit: I just tried my Pro controller and the app can't even see it despite it working on my computer. It's on the latest firmware as well, I'm guessing 3.91. So the only controllers that do work are the left Joy-Con.
