    You need to put the boot.dat on your switch SD card for it to work

    Have you made sure the capacitor of your dongle are fully charged? Plug in the dongle and boot the switch normally, waiting a few second until the led on the dongle turns green indicating that the capacitors are charged. Turn off, launch RCM mode and try to inject the payload again see if that works. Alternatively you can also charge the caps by using the provided micro usd cable the is supplied with the Pro kit

    Well, of course. The boot.dat file is there. That's not the issue, since I don't get the error screen asking for the file to be in the SD card. I get nothing, as if the dongle wasn't even connected.

    Yep, already tried that. I've even tried having the dongle connected to a power source while it's plugged into the Switch. Nothing works.

    I contacted Shop01Media to return the unit and get a refund. What a bummer.

    Can i use the pro license code on a friend's switch or will this lock the dongle to his switch making it useless to me? I already have sx os license installed.

    Can't confirm this as I don't own a pro but supposedly the pro license won't activate on your console as you already have one, you might want to try to boot sx os once on your friend's switch and see if that generates a license.dat file on his sd card, it'd be a better idea to just send xecuter an email

    That's not the problem. If it were he would get the "boot.dat?" error. his dongle seems to be defective or not charged.

    Well need, need ... it's more of a nice to have option really.
    In my book not something I want that much because of the portable options of the Switch.
    But it wil come just be patient.

    Will dive into my Yoku Island Express issue tomorrow and get back to you guys on that.
    Besides that only LA Noire is they only no go for me on 1.3

    Ha! I must have been pretty dense to have not realized that SX OS has been booting this whole time. Everything's good, thanks for your help @lukhart @mbze430

    Hmm my Yoku Island Express dump comes out as; Yoku's Island Express v0 (010002D00632E000).xci using gcdumptool but fails with software error notfication on boot.
    Anybody else tried doing this with their own EUR version of Yoku's Island Express (not the scene release available) and had issues?

    My SX OS Pro (1.3) works as intended. I'm using AutoRCM for the convenience of it. For two straight days now, when I power down my console at night, the next morning the battery is completely drained. Am I doing something wrong here? Maybe the AutoRCM drains the battery even when its powered off? Maybe it prevents the console to completely shut down?

    I should note, that I'm powering down the console from the power button and not putting it on sleep. Last night when I powered it down, the battery was at 40%, and this morning was fully drained.

    So, unless my cat, or a gaming ghost plays my Switch all night, I assume there is a problem here.

    I suspect your cat ... for obvious reasons.

    But ... you leave it undocked for those hours I assume right?
    Have not tried it, will do so tonight and report back.

    EDIT; uh wait you power down as in shut it down.
    that should normally preserver battery actually.
    Still gonna try it.

    Yeah, my switch has never been docked, I only play it handheld. And as far as the power down, yes. The hold power button for 3 seconds> power options > power off thing.

    If it's my cat, I won't be mad at her. She's nice and I can live with it. The power drain is a bit of a concern tho...

    Thanks, I appreciate it if you can test it yourself.
    I have to ask tho. You don't shut down your switch when your done for the day? I mean, I'm not doing something unique here, right? Maybe it's the normal thing to do, is to just put it on sleep mode?

    Mainly it just goes to sleep mode but at the end of the day mine usually finds its way to its dock, so it will be fully charged later on ;)
