    When dou y´all think that someone wil run unsigned code, or any flashcard seller will come up with a switch flashcard? for the 3ds all this took some years.
    Also I´m kinda curious what the file formats will be, how the fw will be, the NAND etc...
    So what are your thoughts on when someone will manage to run unsigned code on a retail console?

    I just ran a random number generator and it gave me "369".
    I can only understand this is the amount of days until the event. (because crystal ball)
    So it will happen on February 19th, 2018.

    Legit. /s

    Without an internet browser, it may be considerably more difficult to find an entry-point for an exploit. But then again there could be a blatant flaw in the security regardless. Point is we don't know. But if I were to guess, I'd say 3 to 4 years before real homebrew will be able to be run on the system.
