    I'm new here and I speak little English. I would like to get tools or learn more about hacking in this console to be able to collaborate in some way.

    I am studying Software engineering and I have loved this subject and as they have done their contributions to access blocked Software, which I am intrigued.


    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Generalmente no se puede apoyar la pirateria, o invertir en ella, ya que es ilegal. Pero se puede crear metodos personales entre grupos pequeños para el acceso a y modificacion del Software para estudiar y entender el funcionamiento de la Consola.

    Saludos desde Colombia.

    I can't help you with your question, but this isn't really a suggestion, just a question

    nothing has really happened as the console is only 2 months old and any progress being done is mostly private work. dive in and do what you can. thats what everyone else is doing.

    He wants to help exploit the system, not make homebrew, I believe

    They prefer to work alone or in their little groups so I didn't bother mentioning it.

    He would even grab $100k from Nintendo if that was case. Just say "100k or release" and money is overflowing your bank account.
    Unless you get sued then you're f'ed.

    About that... there's a private WebKit exploit and thats it.

    I dont think NAND dumping is what's stopping devs from hacking the switch, its whats in it.

    I think he wants to know how to help find ways to exploit the system
    I don't think it works like that, you don't propose a price, they give you money depending on how system breaking the exploit is. If I'm understanding what your saying correctly. Also, I don't see how you could get sued for that

    Hacking is different from software engineering. Here's a good book I read a bit ago: https://www.amazon.com/Hacking-Art-...93271441/ref=zg_bs_3648_6/164-4936246-3476463
    A lot of the other books only teach you how to program in some easy language like python. While technically they deliver (the meaning of 'hacking' is very ambiguous), they are not what you want. A few points about the book I linked to:
    • It only teaches the basics so you can get started, you won't be hacking the switch just by reading it
    • It's a bit outdated as it features x86 assembly. x86_64 assembly is very similar though, the main difference I think is that you have to replace the E in register names to R to use them as 64bit registers
    • I can barely do a buffer overflow on my own code so take what I say with a grain of salt

    Oh I see, only real way is checking for a possible exploit in the WebKit, which could take months just to find and keep secret. Maybe tubehax...

    1: don't know why they would keep it a secret
    2: I'm sure Nintendo made sure tubehax isn't happening again ;)

    1. Well if they wanted actually allow for complete hax then they'd have to.
    2. Its not up to Nintendo, its up to Google's competence, YT on PS4 pro completely sucks.

    1: fair enough, if they let people know immediately ninty would find out
    2: not really, just ask google to make sure (exploit) doesn't work or edit it themselves. Also, the console version of YouTube isn't bad for me. Use it all the time

    Mine just sucks, definitely not my download speeds and definitely not my system. I'm not saying they couldnt nor am I giving a guarantee that there will be, what I AM saying is thats its a possibility.

    I guess it's always a possibility. I guess we just wait for the next cubic ninja to happen
