    Literally my point and his, this doesn't mean there's code execution in anyway. They might just dumped kernel and that's it. No reason to get hyped about it

    Also, TWEET didn't work so meh.
    And yes, you can blame my ass for cresting yet another useless thread in here.

    It's still a major step in Switch hacking, which is worth being excited about.

    It would be a major step if it was manipulated, not just dumped.

    You're being a tad overdramatic.

    This is a step forward into the hacking scene, and there SHOULD be hype.

    Now, there should not be hype for pirated software or any 'hax'.

    Guys do you realise that even if there is piracy it won't hurt the sales that much since most people wont use it
    even on the 3ds scene, if the whole gbatemp would have hacked their 3ds that would still be less than 1%
    won't hurt that much nintendo

    Plus if i don't pirate a game, that doest not mean that i would have bought it
    and even i already bought game after pirating them just because i liked them
    ex skyrim
    all portal
    half life 1, 2 and 3
    etc ...

    Game sales are affected by piracy. It's a more complex issue how it affects games being released, because a game can be in development for three years.

    Yes, because there have been consoles that died from being hacked

    *looks on Google*

    Oh wait, there never has been, silly me.

    I got a little excited when I saw there was some kind of kernel access but if it's just a dump that's useless right now. Good luck to them with Trustzone etc though

    What's your point with this link??

    Under the Decline section of this wikipedia entry:

    Reasons cited for the failure of the Dreamcast include hype for the PS2;[57][130][131] a lack of support from EA and Squaresoft, considered the most popular third-parties in the U.S. and Japan respectively;[132] disagreement among Sega executives over the company's future, and Okawa's lack of commitment to the product;[17] Sega's lack of advertising money, with Bellfield doubting that Sega spent even "half" the $100 million it had pledged to promote the Dreamcast in the U.S.;[33][133] that the market was not yet ready for online gaming;[120][132] Sega's focus on "hardcore" gamers over the mainstream consumer;[57][120] and poor timing.[33] Perhaps the most frequently cited reason is the damage to Sega's reputation caused by several previous poorly supported Sega platforms

    No where in that section does it cite piracy as the cause for the Dreamcast's decline

    Explain the Sega Saturn, another Sega console also a failure but with NO piracy.

    No, but the devs can get really pissed and stop making switch games.

    Thank you. We could compare this to ARM11 and ARM9.

    Once in ARM11 Kernel, we have more things to do, but we need access to ARM9 to pirate/have CFW.

    In this case:
    Kernel = ARM11
    TrustZone = ARM9
