    I am amazed they have a beta of the Lets Go Pokemon games, those are not that old.

    Bottrom source code is interesting, but it's not necessary will lead to a bootrom exploit. To exploit something you'll need functions that have issues that can be exploited. Since bootrom is not a very big program (comparing to the whole os/firmware) and Mariko was developed to patch previously exploited vulnerabilities its very possible that it won't have such exploitable functions. If this is the case then source code will not help with developing such exploits.
    In another words this can be very useful, or can be not.

    The question is......did nintendo/ Nvidia knew that the first (non mariko) revision has a huge flaw in security?.....i mean that mariko document is from 2016

    Holy shit. We've reached the motherlode. This could be big for the future of Switch hacking.
    If nothing else we will know once and for all that the Mariko boot process is unhackable in software. If there's anything to be found, people will find it.

    Better wait for SciresM reaction to this, he seemed pretty sure that no more software exploits would be available, and if anyone knows switch modding, it's him.

    Perhaps, but even with a chip required, at the very least, the source code allows a full custom firmware on it. Like:
    • Being able to tap the full hardware potential on homebrew
    • Easier recovery mode.
    • Completely eliminating the need for any keys whatsoever.
    • Brick proof.
    • Being able to spoof serials to get online.

    Using Lets Go games as a base for rom hacks would be insane lol

    it's likely they already gave schematics to the manufacturer, and it was already in production. any major revision would have to be cost justified, as the manufacturer is contracted to make the same exact thing as the schematics they're given at the beginning. they can't just come up with a revision after a month.

    I mean, if I wanted to give my hacked Switch more oomph in the battery department, I'd just use the Gulikit battery I got for the one I already have.

    Sure, maybe Switch Lites can be hacked now, but those still aren't small enough to be pocketable.

    Weird, since mostly people want those illegal files to play illegal files.
