    Sounds like he means he dumped the kernel, not that he actually exploited it. But dumping is the first step to finding an exploit, so this is still big news!

    34c3 anyone? :tpi:

    I still don't get why anyone thinks hax will be released this year, the chances of it are so slim.

    No doubt it will be held on to until a FW update blocks methods to get it, which is wise, but let's hope it's not another year + before we get to do something with it.

    I respect Derrek and the other devs, yet i'm taking it with a pinch of salt for now. Not holding my breath yet, like those who want a PS4 exploit release.

    However, would be funny though if it was v2.00 only and those that updated got shafted:)

    Damn that was fast. Then again it seem to be closely related to the 3DS.

    Well, this is all happening a lot faster than expected. Much as I would love some emulators on my Switch right now, I do hope that they hold on to this for a while before releasing.

    Nothing for us yet, but since they have the kernel now they can find privilege escalation vulnerabilities (kernel exploits) which leads to all the good stuff.

    The fact they got this far in just 4 months is spectacular.
