    damn I was late & didn't see that. I already updated to 2.3.0. but will no longer update and hope 2.3.0 can get hackable 1 day.

    I hope the bypass update still works for 2.3.0 so I won't have to worry about updating again and can keep my fw.

    HDDs wouldn't really work that well. You'd forget, take the Switch out, then realise that your game crashed or closed.

    Back onto hacking, has somebody looked into the part of Android used in the OS? In the intellectual property notices of a game, Stagefright from the Android Open Source Project is listed. Since Android is open source, we might be able to find the code used for Stagefright. It's listed in the notes for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Zelda Breath of the Wild, ARMS Global Testpunch, Snipperclips, and probably any and all of Nintendo's games.

    You can take a look by highlighting a game and navigating through:
    Options > Other > Intellectual Property Notices

    Edit: Been living under a rock. I don't really check this stuff often unless something actually gets released. Oh well.

    AFAIK there has also been stuff from FreeBSD.

    Is it known which OS the Switch uses?

    Probably not.

    I just know that Stagefright is a possible exploit, just like what they did to the older versions of Android to basically wreck someone's phone, and that code from the original projects could be easily looked up on the internet due to the open source nature. Also did a quick lookup that FreeBSD is Unix-based and similar to Linux, and I already knew Android is a fork of Linux.

    The Switch uses a fork of the 3ds OS, so the kernel is all custom

    Hey guys,

    I know that the best fw to stay on is 2.0.0 atm.
    Quick question. I'm getting a switch in two days so should I update to the current fw (2.3.0) if the switch is still on 1.0.0 OR should I stay on 1.0.0 if the console is not on 2.0.0?

    Just a little breakdown of the title-ids for the Wii U versus the Switch.
    Doesn't look like it'll be possible to make all of the combinations to guess on their servers.

    WII U: 16 characters
    0005000 | $ | 101 | %%% | 00
    %%% = 0,1,2,4,5,6,7,8,9,A,B,C,D,E,F
    $ = 0(Title),2(Demo),C(DLC),E(Update)

    Example: 0005000010130400 = Pilotwings

    SWITCH: 16 characters
    0100 | %%% | 00 | # | %%% | $00
    %%% = 0,1,2,4,5,6,7,8,9,A,B,C,D,E,F
    # = 0,1,2,3
    $ = 0(Title),8(Update)

    Example: 0100E67003A86000 = Disgaea 5 Complete

    Dumb question:

    What are the technical hurdles to making a Switch flashcart? I used DS flashcarts and 3DS flashcarts back in the day. There's a lot of effort towards making a software exploit at the moment. Is it harder to make flashcarts for the Switch?

    Erm... You can update the thread now you know. We can update safely to 2.3 since PegaSwitch now works on it...

    I am on the newest version and just had a crash that I am positive is an exploit.. I replicated 3 times. I am not going to post public but..

    has anyone worked out user mode API, or has dumps? I'm willing to cross share information... PM me?

    Sec and I'll post some evidence..

    I am going to attempt to get the information together for anyone who wants to take a shot.. but i think it'd be smart for people who are already able to exploit the first vuln .. since they would knnow more abouut the internal API, and addresses.. otherwise it'd just go to waste if i post it here...
