Review Video: What Causes Bricking?
We have less than 19 hours remaining. Thank you all so much for your support! It has been an exciting journey from the beginning and we could not have done this without you!
Regarding the bricking issue:
We understand that many backers are still concerned about the safety of the 3rd party dock, so we have been trying to find out what causes bricking.
We are confident that our product is safe to use. We have been testing and using the Jumpgate for more than 9 months and NONE of our Switches have been bricked. We also collected some other dock samples that have been rumored to cause bricking. Our video might give you an idea as to what causes bricking.
Watching tests can be very boring and findings cannot be adequately explained in just one short video. Also, it took a lot more time to collect the samples than expected, which made for a very tight schedule making the video before the campaign ends.
We appreciated your patience and understanding. This review video might still be insufficient but we will keep testing to investigate the bricking issue. Please share your thoughts with us by leaving your comments down blow.
