    No way! I will regret that I spend 45$ when maybe 2 weeks later a free solution comes out.

    I know this is not related to TXs release but..we havent heard from SciresM for a long time now didn't we? I wonder how the atmosphere is progressing. There arent many updates on github either

    If it supports other payloads, I may buy the solder version (assuming it works without being tethered).

    Ok, I have built a system image for the thing successfully. Building again with basically everything that can be an installable module, as an installable module. (Never know what people will ask for. Just covering all the bases)

    Amazon says the thing is on the way.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Given the issues I have faced trying to get a suitable bare image for the zsun built (due to small SPI flash, only 16mb), I think "candidate 2" I linked previously is a no-go, (Only 4mb SPI flash) even though it would be solderless. (has fully exposed host interface) I will look into other options that could be done that are fully solderless, but they are more expensive, and I am not made of money. (For the cost of 2 hardware test articles, I could buy a switch game and have much more fun.)

    Illegal profit? Do elaborate. They appear to be selling a device which functions to a solution to a problem I have (I want the switch to be blown wide open and allow me to do what I like), any actions I do with it that might be various flavours of unlawful are my own business. We could argue DMCA and equivalents or something but you seem to happily dismiss that in the next sentence, something I will join you in for this.

    To that end I am not sure why I should not support them.

    Where are people in the UK ordering from? I've been out of buying stuff since the xbox 360 so if I choose to go this way I want to make sure to get it from a good site. I've looked at the trusted sellers, a few seem down.

    shop01media, it's a bit more expensive but you'll get it sent from Sweden in a few days rather than China in a few weeks.

    I've bought one, just to have it tbh. I'm not gonna use it much because I'm not that interested in piracy. I might download Mario Kart 8 Deluxe but that's about it.
