Hi all,
I'm new to this whole thing, and hoping to get some help.
I've been going by the guide on the sx-xecuter website, but all I get is a black/blank screen when trying to turn the switch on after I use the microSD, sx pro dongle, and jig. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, and just lost in general.
Is there a thread on here for dummies like me? Are there any special features on my switch/laptop that I need to make sure this is working right?
I appreciate any and all help.
Thanks so much in advance.

Check your firmware, I was in the same trouble and I found my switch is updated to 10.0.1 so OS SX is not compatible yet. Expecting Good news soon

I am having the exact same issues. I downloaded the 2.9.5 boot.dat file and dragged into my microSD and inserted into my switch. i never had a microSD in the switch so i was asked by the switch to upgrade to 10.0.1 in order for it to be recognized... i upgraded and the sd was recognized by the switch, but im not able to get into the SX OS Bootloader by pressing + and power button and using dongle and jig. Any help would be appreciated! Im growing frustrated trying so many diff things, not tech savvy as most here
