    Hence why the ps3 fail and private key findings was so epic :D
    EDIT: Too slow to post :(

    You sir are technically correct. "The best kind of correct." But again, "yet." Where computing stands right now we couldn't hash them. Doesn't mean things won't change where we don't need to or some other unforeseeable factor.

    Edit: Not for nothing, there exists nothing on a computer that it 100% "True" randomization. That's why PGP adds human input for added entropy.

    Pardon my ignorance, but can someone explain exactly what Atmosphere is? Does it run on top of the official OS? Or is it one guy re-implementing the entire Switch OS stack in half a year? If the latter, how is that even possible?

    It's a mix of the former and latter, and it comes with a lot of research and trial and error

    It's probably like say Luma on 3DS. It probably looks exactly the same on the surface, but will come with additional apps or features like a cia installer, file browser, etc, that can then open it up to potentially more features down the line.

    We will have a permanent exploit
    When usb drivers will be finished
    Because now all we can do is read and we can’t write

    Mind explaining why ?
    Is it due to the fact that the eMMC is using asymmetric encryption?

    The reason 4.1 and below are still useful is because of the possibility to launch Fusee Gelee/CFW without it being tethered. You can find the source on Kate Tempkins FAQ. This is why I still haven't updated my switch either past 4.1.

    Atmosphère is a customized firmware for the Switch. It'll consist of a fully custom bootloader/boot stack, a custom trustzone firmware, a custom hypervisor + kernel patches, and customized versions of the OS's system modules. The vision is "Luma but for the Switch and making the right design decisions from the get-go", basically.

    The re-implementation stuff is to facilitate easy extension of system functionality -- example: ROM hacks might want to replace title code content. Normally this might be complicated (replacing installed title file, signature checks...) -- why do that when you can make the loader just check for executables on the SD and load them instead of the normal content? Reimplementations are better than patching for extensibility and support for multiple versions -- and they also serve as a good reference for those who want to understand the system, so that's win/win/win.

    No, it's because the switch will normally only run signed software. Various exploits allow you to run unsigned software, but if you cold boot then that ability is lost and the switch reverts to rejecting unsigned software. I believe there are unreleased exploits which auto launch on coldboot, if/when they are released is anyones guess.

    even if we do not have the private key I think its possible to have something installed along side the bootloader that takes over on boot and boot what ever we would like off the sd card and be gold. If we can do that tethered there has to be a way doing it untethered with out the private key's. Remember guys this is hacking we are talking about so almost anything is possible.

    ah, just to clarify I wasn't getting upset over the tethered thing - Just wanted to learn about the state of the exploit. Tethered is fine for me - i'm willing to ride the whole experience start to end with the switch. I've been pretty blessed - acquiring all my other consoles/portables for so cheap - and hacking them all to a permanent state so far. I'm confident it will happen with the switch - seems like there's something about nintendo systems that really get the hacking groups to puthrough

    The comments are mainly asking what it is, or saying something but with a question mark. Is it for backing up your NAND?
