Hoping for some help on this. I was able to procure 11 switch kiosk consoles- OLED, regular and switch lite. 2 have power issues, but the other 11 give an error “could not start the software”. Does anyone know what is causing the error. They can be put in maintenance mode and update just fine. When I am reinitiailizing the console does nothing- other than unlink the micro SD (tested on 1 console). I’m open to ideas as I would love to return these to functions kiosk or demo consoles, instead of using them for parts or selling as broken.

Yeah I saw a couple on eBay but decided against buying them, any idea on the revision? Hacking one or two could definitely help if we could dump the firmware.

No idea on the firmware. I’ve been selling them in eBay and am almost out of the OLED and lite.

For the regular switches, hacking them with a jig might be possible if they're compatible and then dumping the firmware wouldn't be too complicated.
