    Yes. Most of the code was from Yellows8. Yellows8's cfw was leaked by giovanify.

    Actually, we can. But only in Userland mode, currently. Software used for kernel mode exploits haven't been made yet, but the exploit is already public. A Nintendo Switch has to be on firmware 3.0.0 or lower though.

    Homebrew on Nintendo Switch in the future may also be able to prevent the Nintendo Switch from burning eFuses, so that if anyone wants to remove CFW at any time, they could restore the original bootloader and burn the eFuses to the amount that the current OFW requires.

    why would i tell you stalkers where i live?
    the title should be changed to "yes we know some things about homebrew but not enough to make a huge deal and bitch about it"

    Hm, it's just a thought, but if the eFuses are only checked on boot, it simply would mean that we can't spoof the switch permanently. Don't know what this means for the standby, if they are also checked on wakeup. The other thing is if/when we'll be able to extract the keys from further updates to access the nintendo online services. Can we extract the current keys?

    Well, until the Switch can run a full Homebrew app or a dumped ROM this thread still has relevance.
