Once they got the kinks out of development and manufacturing they opened up pre-orders for the switchme modchip. They had an overwhelming response to how many people wanted to buy it.

With the success of the pre-orders, they decided to take a crack at a dongle for sending payloads and with break out pads for future development. The only type of dongle that’s out there that does such a thing comes from Team Xecutor.

It’s not like you need the dongle to send payload since you can do with your pc or mobile device but the convenience of the dongle is very nice. Now the dongle from Team rebug is a work in progress. There’s no ETA on them as they probably got their hands full with the switchme modchip and once that project settles down the dongle will most likely be next.
