    That's not true at all. We don't know when homebrew will happen. We don't have a kernel exploit.

    It's not due in December, it's actually due April 1st. I've been speaking to derrek directly and he said they're working on a PS3 emulator for the switch. How cool is that

    Don't forget the multidimensional HTC Vive interface which lets you use the Joy-Cons as the controllers

    Its not kernel access. They just dumped it. There are so many post about this already.

    I don't think you know what a "kernel" is.

    For one, a "screenshot" of the kernel would just show it open in a hex editor. There is no "kernel SDK program". Official Switch developers don't have direct access to the kernel; they use the SDK libraries to handle things.

    Two, they don't have "kernel access". They dumped the kernel binary so they can now examine it on a PC. The equivalent is opening C:\Windows\System32\ntoskrnl.exe on your Windows PC in a hex editor. Doing this doesn't suddenly grant you access to either the full Steam library or the empty Windows Store.

    EDIT: Also, it would help your case if you didn't make consistent obvious typos. Every browser nowadays has spell check, and your typoed words are underlined in red.

    1) Do you know what auto-correct is? Why not try using it when typing your posts next time.

    2) The kernel was DUMPED, which means that they can view the kernel in a hex editor on their computers. It DOES NOT mean that we can access it while running the switch and gain full permissions on the system.

    3) There is no SDK for the kernel, since developers normally do not need access to the kernel to design games.
