    Very curious as to how they got into the files in the first place.

    That's what I wanna know as well. Since it isn't as easy as plugging the cartridge in to a SD Slot.

    Plutoo (@qlutoo) has discovered a method of obtaining Switch files over a wireless connection. RTB likely used this or a similar exploit.

    ShinyQuagsire provided them with the files iirc, but it probably isn't worth badgering them for information. They'll share what they know if and when they're ready.

    Nice to see so many people attacking the Switch. Haven't heard of some of these devs before.

    Homebrew when. On a more serious note the switchbrew recent changes log is indictive of them having some private exploit, seems like they arent immediately disclosing it to prevent what happened from 2.0.0 to 2.1.0 again. My guess is we won't learn about it until they 100% have a homebrew launcher or what they are using gets patched.

    Smells like... a disaster. Piracy this early on switch = ruined console. :creep: (LET THE HATE FLOW THROUGH YOU ALL TO QUOTE MY POST AND COMPLAIN HOW WRONG I AM) :tpi:

    YES! That is always my favorite answer to homebrew! I honestly just want emulators, SNES9X with MSU-1 and rewind support on switch? 10/10 Kega Fusion (or Genesis plus) 10/10 EPSXE (Or some other good psx emulator) 10/10

    Your post gets perfect score of 30 points. :D

    I like how open the devs are being this time around, it's great to know where they're at related to switch hacking, but imo it also just generates empty hype from people thinking they'll actually release things that enable piracy the first year into the switch's life.
