    I'd like to know if its possible to get the save data from games saved on the system of the Switch with PegaSwitch.

    Maybe eventually it could be used as the base of a tool like that, but as of now, PegaSwitch is purely a developer testing tool.

    We need an exploit to gain access to files that are not browser-related.

    Right now we only have access to what the browser has access to, which is it's own files. We would need some exploit to either escalate privilege or somehow just add file read/write outside of the browser.

    This and Android running on the Switch is the real reason I want root access, starting to feel the burn of not being able to backup saves...

    Perhaps if Nintendo releases a fix to this allowing users to backup game saves to a Micro SD then I'd have less need for a hacked Switch.

    Cloud saves from Nintendo tied to users Nintendo accounts also work for me as long I can get my game saves back somehow if needed.
