    300 pre-production units are going out to testers that apply to Team-Xecuter with their modding skills!

    People have been waiting for a while for news from Team-Xecuter, and today they hit us with double-whammy, announcing the name of their upcoming modchips, and at the same time putting out an request for 300 solid modders with skills to help fine-tine their pre-production units that will be going to those that start applying TODAY by Contact'ing them directly via their 'wholesale (at) xecuter (dot) com' Email. :)
    So it seems, during the Chinese New Year break, TX was not sleeping, they been working hard, and both the SX CORE and SX LITE is getting ready for the mass public, but in the meantime get to work and apply to TX today showing them your skills and references and you could be one of the lucky first 300 users out there with full bragging rights to show off to the world they have a working modded 'Patched' or 'Mariko' or 'Lite' Switch Console! -- Don't forgot to also check out their recently launched Official TX Support Chat Server :)

    No thanks, too much of a hassle.
    Summon the tiny soldering guy.
    Perfect beta tester and interested party for this.

    Why aren't they interested in people with unpatched consoles if this is for QA? They say not to contact them if you just want free stuff but wouldn't having a unpatched console make you less likely to just be after free things since you already have access to cfw? I'd be willing to do this but I have no trustworthy people as references and I only have access unpatched consoles. Eh.

    Because if you're on it just to get it for free (the only possibility), but also you have an unpatched console, it's most likely you're on it just to resell it and that will not only hurt their sales later but it will also not provide then any type of feedback.

    If you want in, just go ahead and complete the form and send the email. The worst you can get is a "no". It's worth a shot.

    Because although this chip is supposed to run on all versions (including unpatched) they want to focus and nail the hardware for patched, mariko and lite versions. If they have a bug-free hardware for these, all switches are covered. If in the end, they also support unpatched, it's a bonus. Yes, they always said it will also work on unpatched. But I'm also pretty sure that if in the end they need to drop some support, ditching the unpatched ones is the quick way out.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Nah I don't want to waste their time if they are only interested in unpatched units. I was just curious as to why that is the case. If they say they don't have enough testers and they'll allow patched users to test the product I'll apply but doing it knowing I'll get rejected just wastes their time.

    True but someone who has a patched unit and is well known in the scene / has good references likely already has a unpatched unit so they're just as likely to flip it. Imo all this does it limit how many people they'll get singing up. Which I guess could be what they want so they don't have the entire scene trying to get free chips.

    That makes sense but if the hardware is exactly the same as patched units bar the ipatches (which is just software it won't make a difference) then I don't see why it should matter. If that's case why not say to only apply if you have a mariko soc?

    Edit: I don't know what happened with this comment. rrocha replied after I posted my other comment but before I refreshed the page so I tried to edit it in and now it's two messages?

    Half of the testers will be guys in the cloning industry :P but there will probably be some brick code included so... I hope we'll get an open hardware/open source reimplementaion eventually.

    What difference would an open source implementation make? i mean you will still be paying someone for the hardware right ? so why not pay the original creators so that it can go towards R&D into new products or consoles? Aren't the cloners at the end the ones getting away with daylight robbery ?

    Welcome to piracy, even the piracy tools get pirated. It's been like that since forever.
    What it means that competition happens... better prices for all. Also freedom to pick and select what you wish.

    SX stealing from people = bad

    People stealing from SX = good

    I dont agree with it but thats the mindset of a lot of people who post on this site
