    I saw a thread saying 4.1.0 as being the cut off, but limited to only homebrew, which, TBH is what I care about the most right now. Already disconnected WiFi.

    The BootROM is the same for every console that shares the chip. Think about the 3DS. They were only able to exploit the BootROM on a factory device, but once they did they were eventually able to make ntrboot, which works regardless of the firmware.

    This is the NV Exploit, which exploits the nvidia hardware, or Tegra chip. If you read hek's write-up the other day on Switch exploits, this will remain private until it is either patched or released if unpatchable.

    userland yeah but SciresM has a private kexploit that he will release when he has a proper cfw/emunand solution wich he is working on. Atleast that's what i got from his latest post

    As in it doesn't work on 4.1.0 but works on all prior? Because if you mean to say it works on all firmware up and including 4.1.0 but not newer, I'd laugh since 4.1.0 is the latest firmware.

    That's what I meant, it works on all firmware to date. As for the BootROM exploit, are you saying that it works on all firmware as well? Or is it locked to earlier firmware? Well someone has to release something sooner or later. I think it'd be ironic if someone squealed to Nintendo about the exploit as subterfuge just to get them to release the exploit. Who knows if/when they'll patch it.

    did anyone noticed how in the video he didn't even use much force to push the power button, almost as if its a capacitive type power button.

    According to what I've seen in the old SDK leak we had the devkit USB Serial drivers, so if it is software implemented we'd just need to enable it and flash a firmware using it.
    The problem is that it's likely signed.

    That's rich coming from a guy that blows 300 bucks for homebrew/emulation. Your jealousy because others are financially better off than you aside, there's no excuse for being above 3.0.0.

    The only people that are on the latest firmware either didn't properly look for a console with low enough fw (I can go to the store right now, grab 10 and all will be 3.0.0 or lower) or voluntarily updated which means they don't get to bitch about it either way.

    It's ironic that you whine about the manchildren that are part of the hacking scene for attention, yet I could bet my first born that we will see you still throw a fit for the next five Nintendo consoles generations because you will be on a non-expoitable firmware at the time things kick off and need to remind everyone about it getting your daily fix of attention.

    All of this crap about "FOF won't release because it will lead to piracy". Couldn't they include some security measure to make others incapable of using specific types of homebrew? (homebrew for piracy etc.)

    They won't release because that's what they do.

    GeoHot did that with PS3, other devs took what he released and made it enable piracy within hours.

    I'm not going to go into the whole Geohot stole work from FOF or whatever that scene drama was.

    But, don't count on FOF to release anything.

    And yet we don't have access to it.
    YET.

    Regardless, whoever publishes their complete method first is going to be famous.
    Unless it's Team X, in which case;
    Infamous and rich!
