    You have to remove the battery first ;)
    But this might not be the case.

    That's only for the actual switch console and only if you remove the battery

    My bad.. Thought it was as simple as pressing a button :D

    And I think he was talking about the switch battery, not the joycon.

    Yes, I was talking about the Switch battery. After removing the tin foil from the Joycon, the battery is back to normal. Strange...

    Oh so your problem only exists while the tin is in? It might be normal.. I never actually kept the tin in since it won't recognize the physical connection.. I got it on a tape and I remove it as soon as I inject the payload. So scratch what I said about me not having your issue.. I just don't know if I do.

    I bent pin 9 over to pin 10 on mine, and they still show as connecting properly

    And how do we solder 1&10 or even 1&7? Been wondering about that one as some claim it's the best method...but so unlikely.

    you could just use something conductive like a small copper cable or a paperclip or even some foil

    If they're not connected as normal when inserted, then you moved pin 9 too far. They need to be literally just touching. I had this issue when pin 9 overlapped pin 10, but when I bent 9 back to where it's adjacent and just slightly touching, the joycon worked just as like it wasn't modded and RCM still worked.

    Actually I wanted to permanently shorten my joycon instead of having something extra for RCM.

    Best method and very easy to do, you don't even need great soldering skills for this one is what a few members told me on here. lift the black sponge of your test pads, just give it a good pull the one above your pins that your supposed to bend together, on your right joy con. Then stick some black electric tape down right over the soldered pads that your not going to solder together apart from the end two of course 9 & 10 I think they are called but make sure the rest are all covered properly, run a knife down the edge of the last ones just to make sure there both covered properly with the tape and put a blob of solder between the end two pads to connect them both. Let the solder set properly and take your black tape off and job done, all clean and tidy!

    You can also pop your sponge back on if you like, just to be a perfectionist!

    I think i will just mod my joycon by soldering the two between a switch and drill a hole so i can press the switch when i want to go in rcm

    That’s a lie pin 9 and 10 work I bend my joy con and works and gets charged

    Yes you can make a hole on the joy con and put a switch or button so like this you safely use your joy con or buy a used or new one and mod that one

    First I bent 9 to 10, then I soldered the same pins on the pad and tried to unbend the pin 9. When I was trying to unbend the pin went slighty "downwards" and doesn't look like the others (I guess I applied more force than needed). But even after that it still being recognizable as attached and charges well too.
