    I was pretty active in the Switch homebrew scene a while back, but since around March I've sort of dropped out of homebrew news. Could someone catch me up on what I've missed since then? (Just a basic list of bullet points of big releases/news is enough.)

    Is there an objective benefit to the deja vu exploit? As in, is the entrypoint different and etc.

    For future reference, the /hbg/ thread on 4chan keeps a little update log in each OP. Good for recent events and advancements. People there aren't very nice so I would recommend limiting interaction with /hbg/ to just lurking.

    SX OS patch 1.4. Can find information here.
    https://team-xecuter.com/sx-os-v1-4-announcement

    Team TX says they found new exploit for the new patched Switch models released in July. Can find information here.
    https://team-xecuter.com/team-xecuter-versus-the-unhackable-switch

    Switch March SDK was released. Nothing of value for non-developers. Not ok to distribute on GBATemp.

    Atmosphere 0.7, first release, coming out at the end of this month. Can find information here.
    https://github.com/Atmosphere-NX/Atmosphere/wiki/release-plans

    ReiNX CFW is now legal to distribute. Auto patching. Prevents gamecard reader from updating too. Can find here.
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/official-reinx-thread.512203/

    Tinfoil can install game, game updates, and game DLC via .NSP files. Can find here.
    https://buildserv.stayathomeserver.club/tinfoil/

    With the .XCI to .NSP converter, there isn't really a need for SX OS anymore unless you really just need to have .XCIs. Reminiscent of 3DS and the .3DS and .CIA conflict. Can find here.
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/4nxci-open-source-xci-to-nsp-converter.513758/

    RajNX CFW is a thing. Not sure why you would want to use this instead of Atmosphere or ReiNX. Can find here.
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/rajnx-c...free-starter-pack-for-nintendo-switch.513785/

    ChuoDujourNX allows for automated updating without burning Switch fuses. Still forces AutoRCM to prevent fuse burning. Can find here.

    You don't have to boot into RCM every time you want to use CFW

    In your mind
    im on 5.1.0 switch (before new july model)
    im keeping it on airplane mode + DNS blocks
    :vul1:
    still gotta buy a micro sd card (size recommendations??)
    also saw the R4 team is getting their switch hands dirty.

    ive got a fully softmodded 3ds and used an acekard for my dslite...

    hope i didnt update too much and can still setup a custom firmware.
    i dont have a jig and the R4 team is looking like a good purchase.

    im a student and going back to school in the fall, (essentially im broke) so homebrew has always been a logical path for me.
    and im an introvert and dont mind losing my online privileges.

    any input on the matter would be deeply appreciated.
    im super thankful for this forums existence. :switch:

    As much as I want them to bring out Deja Vu since I am/was a 3.0 user but updated without burning fuses, I doubt they will and they'll probably keep it private for a long time to come till Nintendo patches it sadly

    They wont release it until the new hardware revision is out IMO. They need to protect that exploit, especially since we don't NEED it right now.

    It's truly sad that there isn't any software vulnerability on 5.x.
