    not far from a computer
    Is there really any ~7" screen device with better performance than a switch that doesn't cost more than 800 bucks?

    I think it's the right place to speak about homebrew but at this point, we just have to work on the native functions, if we can't handle user input or print something on the screen there is no way to make something up

    And is a phone thats running Android. The Switch is built to be a gaming system and runs in its own OS that is made to play games, which is something a lot of people seem to be forgetting when they compare it to the Shield and other devices.

    With the unfair prices that Nintendo provides right now I just wish the console gets hacked as fast as it is only possible.
    Maybe this will open their eyes, that right now it's an UNCOMPLETE CONSOLE.

    Tablet actually, which means better cooling but it's just passive unlike the switch. No Shit it runs its own OS... Nobody here forgets that it's android (apparently I have to clarify I'm talking about Pixel C) but we really don't have anything else to compare it to because we don't know much about the Switch's OS.

    ...........this hurts my head for numerous reasons, including but certainly not limited to the fact that "uncomplete" isn't a word.

    Uh, who said that it's running Android? Because it isn't.

    What we DO know is that it's comparable in a lot of ways to the 3ds's OS, and ISN'T in fact based on android at all, and likely only has stolen the network stack from BSD.

    has to be 2.0, as 1.0 doesn't have internet access last time I checked.

    U'm what........... what was you checking? There is only one way to update to 2.0 from 1.0 and that is with the internet and the system has you type in your wifi info to get online when your 1st setting up the system and they come with 1.0 out of the box.

    iirc it doesn't have the web applet. That's what I was referring to.
    You know, the only access point known right now. Obviously it has to have internet access.

    gaining userland may happen in a month, but it will take time to develop software to actually make use of userland takeover.

    The way you worded it made it seem like you were saying the Switch ran Android.

    I'm so high, I don't even know!
    Jesus, can a thread ever stay on topic? I had to read 4 pages of useless bickering about piracy for nothing. Go talk morals somewhere else, please.

    Great work with the exploit, Team ReSwitched! Any exploit at this stage is awesome news. Looks like I'll be getting a Switch after all.
