Great catch! It looks like I forgot to import that prerequisite. The guide has been updated, thanks!!

Blake Klein -

No problem, also if you can update it to include how to remove the Game card slot too, that’d be great.

I tried replacing my left joycon rail since my original rail was too stiff and i find it really hard to remove the left joycon. I managed to do it, but afterwards, the left joycon is not getting detected by the switch when i dock it. It’s charging though, but the issue is when playing a game, it always ask me to dock the left joycon to play in handheld. Now im stuck playing in tabletop mode. Any help?
