    Modchip clones have appeared on a Chinese forum. The post says this (translated by google):

    "New chips have appeared. Recently, Xianyu has a batch of chips that can be bought in large quantities, which only support the atmosphere, which is different from the previous chips of tx. Chips imitating tx have been secretly shipped"

    Well this might actually get homebrew devs to support Mariko units so I'm here for it. Been waiting for LineageOS for a while

    If you ask me, TX is losing customer base and at a high rate not letting anybody even know what's going on with SXOS.
    I understand people can downgrade, but they have to use the "Competition" to do it with.
    Also as many dumb nuts around as there are, they keep running to the "Competition, because they are being misinformed or mislead intentionally about TX and SXOS. Maybe these clones will finally make them realize that they still have a base they owe it to!
    Sad Times Indeed!

    People who use SXOS usually do it because there's no other choice. Until now, you could not hack a patched switch without their SX modchips. I doubt very many people actually use SX products because they like the company.

    Hopefully these get down to sub $20 as more cloners come out and they also make SX Lite Clones.

    Clones of clones from cloned clones. Or are these clones cloned from the other cloned clones? Very confusing thing with all these clones.

    I have a real question, not sure if I am in the right place. But does anyone know where I can get an SX core installed, somebody with good skills I can pay to have it done for me? I have switch XAW1008490 & I tried to use RCM loader on it but the screen was just black.

    The thing about clones is that it's almost always bond to end up like the R4. Nintendo shuts down one, then another pops up, and becomes an endless cat and mouse game until the system dies and new clones keep coming. It can also just end up being a few clones and eventually, the community finds their own workarounds/exploits and the clones become pointless.
