    Looking to install Homebrew on my Switch-have a 3D printed jig but am not the most confident person with this sort of thing. A while back I had an issue with my 3DS and sent it off to a GBATemp member who faced it and made it even better, but I can't remember who this was.

    Is there anyone who can do this or recommend a trusted site member?

    Honestly, I'd just do it yourself. I get that it's intimidating, and you're probably scared but it honestly takes about 30 minutes.

    You already have the jig, which honestly is the hardest part of getting right.

    Take your time, look at a couple different tutorials, and just go for it.

    You don't need to touch any python stuff lol. Use the web launcher to send payloads, http://fusee-gelee.firebaseapp.com/ and you can browse your SD card with the Mac just fine.

    I'm always up and here to help, just give me a PM or we can chat on another platform if you would prefer.

    If you have an Android phone you can install NX Loader, it boots in half a second. It's so handy.

    It could be an issue with the jig.

    Is it right in? Should just be volume up + power for a few seconds.

    Just to check, you are fully powering the Switch down before trying to enter RCM mode? It won’t work if it’s just standby.

    With the device powered on, hold the power button until the menu comes up. Select the power options, then shit down. Fully insert the jig, hold volume up, then tap the power button. If it has worked then nothing will happen... if the device turns on then you have an issue with your jig. Is it the paper clip or wired one?
