    I have a pro micro, with a 32u8 controller.
    Wonder if this controller can handle it.

    Nope. This one has usually only a cheap usb to serial controller without usb host support.

    Aren't there some mini usb host boards (those tiny ones) that you could use to get usb host support?

    Edit: Quick google resulted in finding this I'm not sure whether this would work tho.. midly interested trying this with a micro pro

    So I've just been looking into this and power is certainly a concern. I tried a tiny USB Type C -> A dongle I have, and power doesn't make it through from the Switch.

    My guess is that because the Switch has Type C, and USB Power Delivery, the Xecuter dongle is somehow able to tell the Switch that it needs power. Apart from that niggle, the Beagle Pocket looks like a nice little board, as does the Tumo (even more so), but I think we're going to need a proper hardware hacker to do the work on this :)

    Even when it's in the recovery mode? My rPi powers up once Horizon is booted, but not in RCM.

    I'm not sure those are actually required for the exploit, they were required because they were the only type of ports that didn't have bugs in the linux drivers. But there are patches for the Linux drivers.

    Granted that is true , i would just like a free TX styled solution . Small light weight agile and easy to use for kids , i got three switches and I cannot afford 3 copies of a game for us to have the lols with .

    Could have sworn I read somewhere that the rate it communicates at needed to be fast for rcm mode.

    I've testet with my Note4 which only got USB2.0 yesterday and it works fine so nope you don't need USB3.0.

    You need a XHCI controller. USB 3.0 ports have a higher chance of having a XHCI controller. On a board like a Teensy, we will be able to patch the controller so we don't actually care about XHCI.

    Would it be possible to do this from a cheap STM32 blue pill board? I think some of them contain USB hardware built in

    It could also be that the TX dongle has a tiny battery inside. Minmal hardware won't require that much power anymore nowadays. I'm looking for something myself now, digging a bit deeper.

    Yep, could be a battery. It could also be so low power that it's able to harvest what it needs from data pins in the USB C port.
