It seems everybody is getting into the rap game these days oh wait I mean the modchip scene. Since the release of Team Xecutors modchip (if you want to call it that) there hasn’t really been anything else to use to send payloads other than your mobile device or PC which works fine.
Now team rebug has the new Switchme modchip which has started to appear in some modchip stores. They are also working on a new type of dongle too. The next Contender is team R4 with their R4s dongle but has yet to be seen for sale other than last week’s hiccup, where it appeared and then disappeared from modchip stores on the net then reappeared again.
The newest Contender is totally different take on payload injection its call the Dragon Injector. This one’s going to be a modified trinket board that can sit in your game slot when not in use. “This does NOT allow you to inject your payload through the game card slot.”
It’s still a work-in-progress and is far from being a product to purchase but the progress seems to be steadily going. The mock-ups/3D renders look amazing and can’t wait to see more progress on this.
I want to share a project I’m currently working on – a payload injector with the form factor of a Switch game cart! As I seem to always forget to bring my phone, cable, OTG adapter or dongle with me, and I’m not a big fan of AutoRCM, I started thinking – wouldn’t it be great if I could just store my jig and dongle inside my Switch? I don’t really like the idea of opening my switch and soldering to it for warranty/resale reasons, and my card slot is always empty because, well, we live in the age of digital. Thus, DragonInjector was born.
This project is based on the open source Trinket M0…I did not want to compromise on usability and convenience, so I deemed the reset button, power switch, and status LED as “necessary”. The cap for the USB plug will also function as the RCM jig holder. To be clear, this project does NOT allow you to inject your payload through the cart slot. Without heavy modifications to your Switch, this is unfortunately impossible.
Here’s what it DOES let you do:
– Store your payload dongle inside your Switch game cart slot.– Always have your RCM jig on you as it’s stored in the cap.- Inject your payload with a USB Type C connector so no adapters are needed.- Charge it up with the card slot or any USB Type C port thanks to the supercap power source. Charging via the card slot means you can even charge it from the Switch while docked!- Forget it even exists until you need it.- One screw holds the board in and removing it will give you access to the SWD and SWC pads so you can reprogram it for whatever you like, including non-Switch stuff if you want.
