    Uuuuhm..

    That amazon page lists a rather large card, for 20$. It is not a namebrand card.

    That is almost classic "hacked nand controller" right there. I would not trust that card at all.

    Yes - lesson learned. As I thought since the 128 GB version of the card has worked perfectly I could get away with the 256 GB version. NOT so lucky! I have ordered a SanDisk as recommended by @DaveLister

    Cheapest 256gb I bought was an $80 Patriot LX series brand. Any lower its fake unless you buy a 200GB card around $60

    It's quite annoying to add the "Dongle" and Jig each time you turn on the Switch. Are devs working on a way to boot CFW w/o inputting these items? Whether it be Team Xecutor or GBA coders?

    I turn it off to charge it as it seems to charge quicker this way. Is that just in my head? LOL

    I haven't done any formal tests but I think that's just in your head tbh :)
    Doesn't seem to be any difference, and if there is, it's entirely negligible

    Like above I turn it off(sleep) found accidental power ons with auto rcm to be the pain in the ass with battery in deep charge mode due to total power drain.

    AutoRCM + Internalized Trinket M0.

    You need somebody with good soldering skills, and an ~8$ purchase from adafruit.

    Sadly I cannot. I have carpal-tunnel afflicted wrists, and cannot be trusted with a soldering iron.

    Be that as it may, that is what the current gold-standard is for a cold-booting NX.

    Worked in an electronics assembly sweat shop from the age of 18 to 20 .
    My hands are not tiny but can manage small jobs with the right kit. Current rig is bigger than what is required.
