    from what i read, some guy testing pin readings noticed that pin 9 is sometimes grounded (so it works sometimes for some), but sometimes not (nothing happens). and it might sometimes even carry a current which could cause damage (as far as we know, has not happened yet, might be that this state is only ever set sometime during use and not during bootup.
    if a joycon is inserted, it apparently always grounds though (might be that it grounds inside the joycon without ever reaching whereever the pin connects inside the switch or something)

    i've also heard varying information on pin 2 to be honest.
    1 and 10 seem to be the safest option if you're not using a specially designed jig that always guarantees an identical connection.
    with things like bent paperclips that connect say 10 to 7, they could be moved around (accdentally) and hit the pin with the current in the middle (pin 4?)

    ok, i hope so. though you should still make it a habit to like, check before shoving in a joycon ^^

    The point is we do not have the full read out of the trace; thus, pin 1 is recommended; however, software cannot set anything if RCM is in place.

    Also I've never seen documented behavior where pin 9 shoots to 5Vs. All observations of this pin either lead to floating with LOW current or ground.

    I mean a linux driver or something. We mostly use software written for other devices at this point, and it may set pins that serve another purpose in other devices.

    Anything is possible since we are exploring unknown territory. Linux can even overvolt the display. No need to keep GND active once RCM is reached though

    Using a Reed switch is also an option to have a permanent mod that only temporarily shorts pin 10 when you need it.

    Pin 10 & 9 just wouldn't work for me, Pin 10 & 1 on the other hand is a perfect match. I had a spare (broken) joy-con around and decided to turn it into an rcm-con, works everytime and no fear of breaking any pins :yayswitch:

    Ive ordered a replacement joycon rail.

    Is it easy to see what points to bridge where the ribbon is attached

    Going to remove ribbon or cut it depends on how it's attached or just may leave it on[​IMG]

    this is my mod

    I have put inside a small pressure switch (the R and L of the 3DS) to operate with the wire that comes in the phones to remove the sim, so it is always disconnected. To activate it I just have to press + and connect the cable, then I press the button before the battery charging screen comes out.

    Tried doing that (like 15 times already), and it doesn't work.
    Maybe I'm not pushing hard enough?

    nx-python works on 4.1.x and 5.0x so why not code a script to reboot into rcm and load the payload of choice until thier is unteatherd way?
