    they tend to follow the self rule of don't release till it's patched to give them less of a chance to patch it

    There isn't many games you can play if they put new required firmware versions up on the coming games to get around a released Kexploit though...

    I am not sure it has an immediate connection. But snooping around could possibly lead them onto something that else would take more time to find. Are you sure it isn't (did they say how to got to it) or are you assuming? Just asking.

    Guess I'm disabling updates while I'm still on 3.0.0. Now that the Switch is region free, fan translations are going to be huge for this system.

    Nope. They're not using the SDK, can confirm. Not like it would help much with RE anyways, it's just standard C/C++ libraries with clang compiler. Can't even debug without a dev unit anyways, so for all intents and purposes, it's useless in this scope.

    thing is, cracking the files cause some games can't get a translation still sadly on 3ds

    The biggest one I'm looking at is MHXX. That already has a patch for 3ds I think. If someone gets file swapping to work on Switch, it probably won't take long to port the translation over.

    this is one of the examples of games that unfortunately haven't been able to be done yet
    http://gbatemp.net/threads/wip-final-fantasy-eshop-translation.418445/page-4#post-7443050
    so my point is, please don't assume one game being possible means they all are, but it will be nice when it comes around
