A Custom Nintendo Switch #NintendoSwitch #Modding @Arantius

Anthony Lieuallen posts about a custom Nintendo switch unit:

I got a Nintendo switch console just under two years ago. I’ve been loving it. I’ve also got a huge collection of other video game consoles…

The extra detail with the Switch is that the original units have a built-in hardware vulnerability which makes them trivially easy to hack and thus run anything you desire. I like to mod all my consoles to run whatever I choose, whenever I can. But these early Switch units are becoming more rare and expensive.

As for some of the mods:

 I replaced the plastic shell with this pictured transparent green version. I’m really happy with it. I also took the time to paint the labels on the buttons in white… I elected to not install the metal plate across the main unit. It serves a minor role in heat dissipation, but I believe things will be fine without it, and it makes the transparent back look extra awesome.

While I had it open anyway, I also installed an internal “RCMX86” chip, which makes the unit automatically boot up in completely open and hackable mode.

See the entire blog post for details. Lovely!

RCMX86 mod chip completely installed.
