    Merry Christmas, GBAtemp! Today may be a very Merry Christmas for those that like to dig into leaked data, as the latest files from the ongoing Gigaleak--part 8, to be exact--have made their way online, supposedly. According to those who have already gotten their hands on the illegally-obtained files, within the .zips lurks a beta build for Pokemon: Let's Go Eevee as well as a major bit of data: the source code for the Mariko BootRom, with classified files straight from NVIDIA. As always, sharing these files is against GBAtemp's ToS, but feel free to discuss them!

    I'll wait till we get some real hacks/mods that don't require illegal files and/or permanent CFW

    This is hugeeeeee, it might be the key for a new bootrom exploit depending on the contents of the file.

    I wonder if anything will come out from seeing the Mariko boot rom source code.

    I'm curious about the contents of that code- not for the sake of exploits, mind you; I'm just the kind of guy that checks msinfo32 when looking at a friend's laptop.

    ...said no exploit developer ever... Bottom source code is the holy grail of unlocking the device from power-on.

    But with the source code, you can better understand how and why the functions exist and do what they do, and an exploit can be made around it. Also, there could be hidden stuff. Just look at how the Magnethax for the 3DS was found as an example. Led to an unpatchable exploit across the entire 3DS family of consoles.

    Erista was the OG Switch's SoC name? Neat!

    And with tonight's news, my Switch Lite is now under 90DNS for the foreseeable interim. Future's looking so bright, I gotta wear shades.
