    These people that's been talked about so far have always released something. So don't worry, if they do find something, they will release it. Most likely after Nintendo patched it or when they feel the time is right.

    That was before Nintendo gave out a $20,000 bounty for exploits.

    If you give them an arm9 exploit or something, yeah. $20,000 is the max they will give you.

    Actually, they could give you nothing and still keep the information.

    A slight concern about any future vuln being released is the fact he sat on sighax for the 3DS for a looooong time and it wasn't until others in the scene including people like SciresM and co released their variant that he kind of rushed his out

    I hope this won't be the case and it will be another big team / community effort that will be shared with all

    Is there a way to skip updating the system when using a new SD card?

    If you're talking about the update when using a micro SDXC larger than 64GB it doesn't matter, it's a separate update and not a firmware update.

    I know this is super unlikely but i hope it'll be like 3ds where you can play online on your hacked system, this is most likely not the case however!
    Doubt i'll get another switch JUST for playing online if that really is the case, we'll see......
    With the 3ds being able to play online with the system hacked was easier due to the nature of the online system, will it be possible to play a switch online hacked in anyone's opinion?
