    Not even not having a web browser can save Nintendo from browser exploits.

    Not interested in piracy, yet you want to play emulators. Where do you get the roms for those emulators? Do you dump your own physical cartridges? No, you pirate them. You look like an idiot, oh I'm not interested in piracy, even though that's exactly what I do when I emulate games.

    Oeh... 2 questions;
    1] Is it < 6.2.0 or <= 6.2.0 ?
    2] In userland, is something like Checkpoint on the table?

    I wonder how long it's going to take to pry open these ipatched units like the original models, if it hasn't already been done behind the scenes.

    So if a system has firmware at 6.2 or higher it can't be modded? Would it be tough to find a new system sold at a store like Best Buy or Amazon with lower firmware?

    Great news. Sadly I wouldn't be also surprised if most ipatched units are on 6.2.0 by now because of smash.

    This is great for ipatched switches, but where's the warmboot exploit for 4.1.0 and below? Also, from looking at these replies, doesn't consoles need at least some form of a web browser, since there are wifi connections that require authorizations (which is how the 3.0.0 web exploit even worked)?

    But what about the risk of a ban using this compared to RCM?

    Consoles don't ship with anything higher than 5.1.0 currently

    Neat. Hopefully it leads to CFW/other exploits soon.

    Haven't been watching the Switch scene much.

    I've been wanting to run homebrew on my Switch console, but I didn't feel like doing the RCM jig thing, and risk a brick if done wrong (at least, that's what I've heard). :P
    Assuming this also works on non-iPatched units, even though this is just userland, my console would be banned from using this, right?

    EDIT: Found @LovesSwitch223 already asked this. :P

    Why couldn't he dump their own cartridge? You are assuming they download them, you have no proof. I myself dump my games when I play them on emulator, since I am against all piracy.

    You have to unlock bowser mini in smash brothers and glitch masterhand to get exploit.

    Sir, this is a BROWSER hack, not a common BOWSER hack

    It sure is no new exploit. I would guess it gets published because it was closed in 6.2.0
