    Sorry if this is in the wrong section but I wasn't entirely sure where to post this. I was just wondering if anyone was able to find the switch Firmware yet so that it can be downloaded and backed up in case ninty updates the Switch further soon.

    That's easy to do. It's just to put up a wiredshark and sniff the traffic on a monitor port on a router. Nothing really special to do for anyone who wish to find it.

    Yes but sadly I won't be able to buy a Switch anytime soon but would still like to backup those Firmwares. If you have one could you send me the links you captured please?

    I can't get it since the traffic I encrypted. But I can see the DNS request. Marcan, smealum or plutoo probably knows more.

    If nintendo isn't stupid everything is encrypted via https or whatever.
    Funny how since the wiiu scene is growig everyone thinks stuff on the switch is possible no one even has done on the wii or wiiu or any other system as far as i know.

    Are we in theory able to simulate an original update for already hacked consoles???
    If yes, why haven't we ever done this? :)
    And if, we are maybe able (with enough rights to do so) install custom updates via official updateprocess inside the console ;)
    (I think on the wii a patched IOS80 would be enough + https to http patch ;) k

    Run Fiddler and connect to it as proxy server. It has an option to install SSL certificates.
