    Hello people,

    Bought a switch for christmas but it was not possible to run cfw sinds my switch is patched. Now my switch is back in the box and waiting till there will be a new way to hack the system.
    I was wondering if there is allready some progression in hacking the new patched switch?

    Tried to convince my wife to buy a second switch, which will be hackable but she was not very eager to buy another one :P

    thanks for listening

    As long as you don't update it past 4.1.0, you'll be able to use the warmboot exploit when that eventually releases.

    Thanks for the fast response and advice. Good to hear there is some w.i.p. , will certainly stay under FW 4.1.0

    follow Team Xecuter forums for their supposed solution for the ipatched units. it's been a while since they promised it, and never heard any other progress on it personally.

    Just remember there is no timeline for these exploits, it could be in a week it could be in 2 years.

    Obvious solution is to return it to the store and buy a hackable one. I'm sure you've thought about that already. :lol:

    Will watch the team Xecuter forums closely.

    Yes, true. I will burn some candles and wish it take like 2 months max :P Otherwise we are forced to go to plan B ;)

    Great info, thanks for helping! Wish you all the best in 2019.

    Do you talk about the write-up of hexkyz? Is it possible to boot a CFW with that exploit? I read the write-up, but it is not clearly answered. I think this is only a userland exploit and maybe only part of the exploit chain to get full control of the switch?

    NVHax will be released soon, but it only allows Homebrew up to 6.0.0

    That's what I thought, too. The exploit gives you the permission to run Homebrew on the switch. There is no possibility to run custom firmware on the patched units at the moment.

    That's a different thing, on 4.1.0 and lower specifically it's possible to run CFW.
    The exploit chain is developed and works AFAIK, just hasn't been released yet.

    Is there any documentation of the warmboot exploit chain available?

    Those exploits alone won't let you boot CFW. But in combination with a few other exploits, you can boot CFW (and some of those other exploits only work on 4.1 and below)

    Downgrading without bricking your system is impossible.
