    It's not a joke. You can jump pin 10 with pin 9 with a small enough cable.

    Just jammed two thumb tacks in the audio jack and HBC launched can confirm this works.

    It's not permanent. You just need to insert it when you're coldbooting.

    From my understanding the joycon slides right into the rail and when pin 10 touches the metal part of that 3d printed thing itll be short-circuited by the jumper inside the blue thing and thus you can enter RCM by pressing volume up.

    True, but this is fairly obvious by exploit standards. One of those "forgot to turn the oven off" moments for Nvidia. At least maybe this might speed up development of TX2?

    BOI! Whats going on right now! I cant remember all the "there will never be a release for whatever on switch"-posts. And now in the last 48 hours everything goes totally crazy!

    I love the progress <3

    I gues on earth.
    Talkin about Nintendo FW, it is the most secure FW on any Nintendo console ever. So 90% of the time it is Nvidia's mistake.

    Is guaranteed to be pretty much the same thing since the exploit works the same regardless.

    No company or firmware will ever be infallible. That's life, nothing you can do about it.

    Still not infallible, don't get why people are having an aneurysm about this.

    I am not saying that it would be infallible. I am just saying that this is mostly Nvidia's mistake...

    And that's reason to have people on here getting an aneurysm over this? It is what it is, nothing can stop it.

    I never said anything about being "infallible," but I'm sure they would've preferred to have Switch on the market for a least a couple more years before exploits went public.
