    NEWS UPDATE: (6/6) - @evilsperm - Looks like I'm going to have some fun tonight :)
    [​IMG]

    Team REBUG tweeted out a picture of there first prototype testing model that has arrived, and @evilsperm is going to install it later on tonight and get to work on the next stage, as they work on a simple 4/5 wire internal modchip for the Nintendo Switch console, which has only been 2 week since they first announced the SwitchME project and asked for few testers with professional tiny soldering skills.

    It has to be noted, this still in very early design stages, first internal tests have to be done by team members before even the selected testers can get a chance and also the final design will be shrunk more and alot smaller over half the size pictured above, so please remember don't bug the team too much right now, and stay tuned for more news updates here in this thread! :)

      hey o/

      I'm interested in testing the modchip.
      Unfortunately I don't have many Reference photos about my soldering skills.
      I repaired many 3DS devices by hardmod which were bricked when there was no other way except a Hardmod + NAND Backup.
      I also worked on a portable Gamecube Device which I stopped working on due lack of time and interest:

      If you were active in the Nintendo 3DS Scene, you probably heard of me.

      Would be cool if I could test your modchip. I have two Nintendo Switch Devices (3.0.0 & 4.1.0) here.

      You can contact me via Discord ( Cellenseres#2571 ), E-Mail ( [email protected] ) or Twitter ( @Cellenseres )

      yea i cant see a mod chip really picking up, when users have to solder.... when they can use simple tools to apply cfw.

      From what I've read, there is some demand for such an item, although I can see it remaining a relative niche.

      I don't know about you but I don't want to have to jig my switch every time I want to load cfw, and have to be tethered to a computer/phone/TX dongle every single time I need to reboot.

      Solder in solution and autoRCM = boot to whatever payload/cfw you want instantly every time without holding buttons, shorting pins, and being tethered ;)

      Just my .2c

      I'd actually take a soldered modchip over one that you have to plug in.

      Having an internal modchip, I think will be good for those that are true-console-fans, not until portable usage, leaving it in the official nintendo dock, as i yet to see how the TX SX solution can work in the dock, without first removing it and then putting it back in.

      Just my .2c :)

      Hello. Really want to join this project.
      I'm from Russia.
      Got a switch on 1.0.0 fw.
      I have 7+ years of experience working in electronics repair shop (cell phones, tablet PCs, laptops, game console and many more) and another 10 years as a hobby. I'm experienced in BGA soldering (reballing, repairing broken pins under BGA ICs, soldering chips glued with compound and so on), soldering to very small points (internal pins of various connectors, repairing flexible PCB ribbons, soldering under microscope and so on), soldering using heat gun or IR equipment (chips in any cases, small smd components, bga chips and so on).

      Too bad that I didn't have many reference photos of my soldering skills but I think this must be proof enough:

      I would love to try out this mod. I used to have a small side business modding xbox, ps1, and ps2 systems for a modchip website many moons ago. Unfortunately I never took pics of my soldering. But to do PS2, that required some major skills. Only pic I could find was this, which was about how many I'd do in a week.
