    I wanted to reply something like that but decided I shouldn't. SX fans going to complain and then when we will respond they will be like "oh atmos fans are always trashing us". If they can only see it in black and white "because it's got the word stealing in it anyway", that's their problem, they won't understand that people can get pissed off when they actually steal something.

    Anyway, this stuff looks pretty good for now, we'll see how it goes when it comes out.

    I beg to differ , Usually the cheap Chinese clones are nothing but that clones. They don't do anything to contribute to the scene or to improve existing products they are just in it for the money. Yeah they drive down prices but at what costs? If no new developments from the original creators such as Hardware revisions or Software revisions the clones just die along with the original product.

    Why do the devs give up on the projects u might ask ? Well to put it in simple terms its not worth all the time & effort they put into the R&D. If it was that simple everyone would be doing it but for there are things that require the need of complex specialized equipment or even skills sets to accomplish things like a mod chip etc.

    Yes there are devs out there that do & release their work for free and that is perfectly fine & big kudos go out to them nothing but respect, i personally done it my self with many projects. Hell ill buy a clone of something if it was better than the original but if it was just a 1:1 clone then there is no benefit for me apart from a couple dollars and even then they are usually cheaper because they use inferior parts to drive down the costs, without caring what damage etc it may cause to the end user.

    I do not think so. If this mod becomes successful, then the tiny soldering guy will have a lot of work in modding common people nintendo switches.

    It doesn’t say anywhere they are not interested in unpatched units being tested I have dropped them an email and I have two for them surely TX would want to test all units.

    You clearly don't get it. Or you're doing it on purpose.

    My bad! I didn’t read that bit it was hidden lol

    Tbh you can still use these mods on an unpatched unit I’m surprised they didn’t want those testing as well just to be sure

    More like "they stole first, now it's time they face the same fate" or in other words justice.

    Hmm... I actually wonder how the production of them might gotten a hit. I for one can't even get one if I wanted one (I don't have any new Switches) since our local postal service refuse to send and pick up mail from China because of COVID-19.

    Sounds like you just described capitalism. Yes, thank you for listening to my TEDtalk.

    Obviously China is superior. Like, who wouldn't want to get a TX device and a free coronavirus? Like come on, that is a steal of a deal. You get a TX device you probably can't use to mod your Switch because of inexperience and a free get out of life for free, card.
