  2. I wanted to watch this video. But you need to learn how to speak.

    Stop speaking slow then switching to super fast squishing all the words togeather then not fully pronouncing them.

    I could go on.. But man I'm trying to tell you as nice as I can if you can't communicate clearly you will never have a successful YouTube channel.

  3. I'm looking to get a rcm jig and I've seen a few on ebay, but I'm interested in knowing which one do you have? Or did you make it yourself? Just seeing if you have any recommendations. Thanks! This was a great video

  4. Checkpoint now works on latest firmware. PLEASE USE THAT INSTEAD!
    It's the "Alternate Save Backup/Restore Tool" in the description. Just drop Checkpoint.nro into the switch folder on your SD card.
