    Flashcarts like the sky3ds might be viable for the switch?
    Then again, there is nothing worth pirating on the system

    Reminder that Vita dumps existed years before the thing ever got hacked.

    Earth, bro-dude.
    Deeeaaaamnnn. I'll say by February, it seems like we'll have a "big menu" or "Sky++" to play with. And by 2019, Switch will be replaced by New Super Retro Arcade Classic Neo Nintendo 1CubeDS 4HDK with FIOS X AT&T.

    Wonder if this will be like the 3DS where it took another two years for things to get going but with the news the kernel has been dumped it might already be a little while before something shows up - they can read out version numbers and title IDs too...

    EDIT - dumped with the hardware - so code execution is possible then.

    Is this true because I cant find them on any site? no private P2P has them or any private sites. @T-hug I'm not sure were you got your sources from but I think they are fake.

    What are the implications of this? Does this mean, the dumping was software based or was the console hard modded?

    Piracy might be bad for the Switch development as it scares people away. But yet again this are just raw game dumps with literally no way to use them

    Yes, but when they release exploits, these dumps will be playable
