    TX is adding more products to their SX Family, now they are offering SX GEAR, check out their official PR details below:
    It is basically, an empty SX PRO dongle with their JIG, with no forced SX OS, and no forced 'payload', so you can use it as way to upgrade from just owning SX OS before, or for use with other 3rd-party payloads, its TX giving you freedom and choice, at good price. :)

    It is without SX OS. You can use it with any CFW. I guess they had demand for it now that there is various solution beside SX OS. I own a SX Pro so useless for me. I guess also some people who bought SX OS fast (i waited myself) might buy it to have the full kit.

    I'm not understanding either. It sounds and looks like the exact same thing, but in a cool color now.

    since it mentions "SX Gear is the perfect solution for SX OS owners who want an easy and safe way to boot up Team Xecuter firmware."

    my guess is its identical but they are trying to get people who bought the license only that may regret that choice to buy a dongle.

    whereas currently if they bought a pro dongle, they would have the licence they 1st bought and a unused one that came with it

    There's a dongle on AliExpress for $16. This really needs to be $20 to be competitive.

    Price is higher tho. Seeing how retailers went way higher then the suggested price, I will see them doing the same with this and asking like 30 - 35 dollars instead for this. Price needs to be maxed out at 20 euro/dollar seeing there are cheaper solutions to boot sxos

    I bought the os as I'm impatient and then I bought the Pro for convenience, wonder if I could now sell the pro and just get this dongle instead
    Haven't used the license from the dongle.

    Maybe an idea

    So basically just a RCM jig without a license, I guess TX have realized they can't keep selling SX OS as the "best" CFW once a XCI loader is released on free alternatives, so this is a smart business move.

    They're getting priced out of the market by knockoff payload delivery vehicles and free solutions which no doubt has greatly impacted their sales tail, and their OS-only sales are a nice double dip of sorts to prolong revenue.

    Basically trying to squeeze some more $$$. But this thing is more expensive than the equally functional knock-off payload pushers so it's pretty much pointless.

    Indeed, you are basically paying for branding at this point... TX has become the Apple of the HB community

    Ok, so if I understand, it's the jig and the dongle, without the OS, so at a lower price than the Pro version?
    I was planning to buy SX PRO just for the dongle and jig, as I don't care for their OS or even piracy at all, this is perfectly what I want then.

    Just buy the far cheaper knockoffs tbh. It's the same stuff internally.

    This really needs some extra explanation as for what this is supposed to do.

    They should hire you to do their marketing.
