    [Edit: could mods change the title to Switch Hacking News please]

    Here are the latest news:
    - Derrek got the kernel who has no kernel address space layout randomization according to plutoo
    - He also published a key (boot0 maybe ?)
    - Plutoo dumped some sysmodules

    Hi there,
    As you can see in this Tweet:

    Plutoo (qlutoo) has dumped some code binaries of the Switch sysmodules.
    As I'm not an expert, I'll let you debate about what this could change about Switch homebrew.

    Not super relevant to end users atm: basically, the code for all Switch sysmodules (other than builtins + kernel + trustzone) have been dumped -- this'll allow for the services to be REd and documented, and for vulns to be more easily found in them.

    That is a huge dump. :creep:

    So what does it all mean anyway? I can't read matrix code. :wtf:

    It looks like he's dumped Boot2 as well?

    Oh wow. Only a few months since the console has been released and a bunch of system stuff has been dumped.

    Well now we have a hardware key -> not fixable

    Why should they not at least tell us precisely what this is

    Hypothetically speaking, if this were a key of any kind it would violate gbatemp's ToS and thus not be allowed to be posted on this site.

    If a mod thinks that should not be allowed, he's free to remove it from my posts, as specified in the ToS.

    Wii U was less than a month, so no :P
    I'd say it's pretty big news, even if it's not useful to end users. The first step to finding exploits (besides actually learning asm and all that :P ) is getting ahold of the binaries, or at least a RAM dump, without that you can't even begin to look for exploits.
    So it might be months, years, it all depends on how vulnerable the Switch OS is and how willing the hackers are to share their findings (I'm sure you already know all this though :P)
    Anyway, main point is, I think it's relevant to end users, because of what it means for the Switch scene. Not because it means "hax are coming soon hurr durr" because it doesn't, but it's a good sign of things to come.
