    It's a module, so yeah, they can update it all they want.

    behind a parental advisory sticker
    here is a little quote from the linked source
    "TrustZone technology is programmed into the hardware"
    i think that means they cant change it . . . directly . . .

    The switch does use fuse downgrade protection -- you can actually tell this by dumping and reverse engineering its (plaintext) stage 1 bootloader.

    And obviously I can't tell the future, but whatever I eventually work on will be released for people to use, since that's kind of the point.

    Ah my apologies. Read efuses and instantly remembered the 360 stuff

    I said "does" -- you were right that switch is protected similar to how xb360 was (though I've never owned an Xbox and don't actually know how that worked in reality)

    Efuses..... Great.... I'm having visions of endless threads where people bricked their switch trying to downgrade.

    Same. efuses are quite handy to counter hacking, when used right. The 360 showed that much.

    It'll happen. It doesn't matter what type.. Some overhyped weirdos will bite the bullet and brick their systems. It always happens.

    You could always do what I did, I bought the Switch in the UK and sent it to my boyfriend in Brazil and had to pay £320 in taxes. I could've cried.
