    ...they're on the switchbrew page ...someone provided the link just after your original question in this thread (...tho, I'm still hoping someone posts the hex codes for the Dragon Quest XIS Loto Joy-Con! ...they are definitely different than the new "dark blue" values)

    Just a curious question - is the firmware stored in the SPI flash? If not has the 1.0 firmware from the Joy-Con and Pro controllers been dumped? I imagine 1.0 wont be available on Ninty's servers, and it may become difficult to find this version in future if its not dumped.

    I would ask you if it could be used on a Android Device, but you would probably say no.

    It's open source so you could start porting it to Android. :)

    I keep getting an error message when I click on the body color button. I don't know what else to do.

    All it gives me is an error message when I click on the color button. What do I do?

    Is there a way to change colors on specific buttons because I have the SNES shell for my pro controller?

    This has been a thing for almost three years and I'm just finding out about this. Underrated.

    Hello! Hope someone can help me.

    This tool worked perfectly with my left Joy-Con, but after changing colours on the right one, it's only usable *while not attached to the console (1P or 2P).
    (Edit2: Re-reading this again, I used the wrong word here. Fixed the description. Sorry.)

    I used the tool because I spray-painted the Joy-Cons (and console) myself. I was very careful, had no hickups, it all went well. There is not the tiniest dot of paint anywhere it should not be. After painting and before using the tool, the Joy-Cons both worked perfectly fine, in both console and handheld modes. This problem only occurred after I used the tool.

    If I attach the right Joy-Con to the Switch, it makes a clicking sound and shows the correct (new) colour flashing on the screen, but it doesn't register any input once attached. A different right Joy-Con (that has never been used with the tool) immediately works perfectly fine and without any issues in all modes.

    I've searched in this thread, in other forums, and on YouTube for several hours and can't find a solution.

    So far I have:
    • completely unpaired the left Joy-Con from the PC to avoid any interference
    • updated both controllers
    • restored the SPI (-> original colour, still the same problem)
    • rewritten a new colour onto it
    • disconnected & reconnected the Joy-Con from the Switch
    • disconnected & reconnected the Joy-Con from the PC
    • turned the Switch completely off & on again
    • refreshed & disconnected the Joy-Con in the tool
    • cleaned the connection thingies on the side of the Joy-Con
    • did a Full Restore via the tool and the backup

    I've done most of these several times over, and in different orders. Always making sure I disconnect the Joy-Con from the tool, and unpair it from the PC's Bluetooth before trying to pair it with the Switch.
    The backup file has the correct name ('right' in the filename), and the correct size (524.288KB), so I have no reason to believe it to be corrupted.

    If nothing else, is there a way to undo any changes done via the tool? As OP said on page 62, "you can't brick them with the toolkit in any way, even if you write zeroes to SPI." So I'm just gonna trust that and hope I didn't brick it.

    Thanks in advance!

    Edit: I want to add that, oddly enough, right after trying to connect it in handheld mode, sometimes, just sometimes, it works for a maximum of 3 seconds. Then it just doesn't anymore.

    Is it possible to have different colors for different buttons? Like have a red A, green B, yellow X, and blue Y.

    Perhaps in a future update you could allow users to create an external list of Pid and Vid pairs so that the tool works with third party pro controllers.

    You don't have to wait for someone doing this. Use the "Eyedropper" function. Very helpful for specific colors. Or when you need a specific color ;)

    Anyone have the new Animal Crossing joycons hex code? I eyedropped the color from photos but I'd like the official ones.

    The eyedropped color is the official one.

    I have now also exchanged the inner part of the Joy-Con that connects to the console body for that of another Joy-Con that did work when attached to the console. Just to make sure I didn't mess up anything while reassembling.

    It still doesn't work...

    If noone knows of this problem, does anyone maybe at least know a way to undo all changes made using the tool? This is so sad. I can absolutely not recommend this tool as of now. It ruined my Joy-Con.

    Did you created an spi backup? That's the firmware iirc.

    I did. I know my original post is quite long, sorry, wanted to provide as many info as possible.

    I can only imagine that somehow, the SPI did end up corrupted? But I wouldn't have had any way to know this, as far as I can tell.​
