    Their program is really stupid. All they are doing is encouraging more people to try to hack it so that they can earn money.

    No update = the vulnerability is still there, plus always remember Hardware Flaws cant be patched ;D

    Remember RGH? C:

    For us what want it hacked? Yes, very stupid. For Nintendo who wish to have it more secure? Not bad at all.

    endergamer probably disappeared because they sold an exploit that wasn't theirs, and then the real discoverer revealed it afterward.

    So you'd rather get paid off and never get homebrew on the Switch? Huh.

    Yes. Of course I would. If that was an option for me.
    I got bills to pay so... yeah. Money is a good insentive. I probably would hold on to some exploits privately as well.

    Well, many people wouldn't, but I respect your point of view.

    Also as I said in the old thread. It looks good on my resume if I gotten paid for finding a vulnerability. It's just common practice with in the IT security sector.

    The people that are trying to hack it now are doing it just for the money. They wouldn't even have tried to hack it if there was no money involved. The people that hack the switch for the "homebrew" are going to release the exploit regardless of how much nintendo pays them.

    He didn't disappear, he's still well around here, not ashamed tho.

    Its not, they're defending their own property.
    Google also paid a couple of hackers to find exploits within their services, same goes with Facebook.

    Nope. As long as we don't update, we are 100% safe. Additionally, we don't even know what these people reported.

    Except that we wouldn't profit from hacking either, only black-hat hackers. If we could homebrew the Nintendo Switch, we could watch movies and make our own tools. And, for us, what Nintendo is doing IS stupid.

    The only thing that pisses me off is seeing "ryanw" on the list, because if he's who I think he is, we all know he's just leaking other people's shit to get a quick buck

    Yeah, let's kill those bastards because they're helping Nintendo and not us and we won't be able to pirate games sooner and Nintendo will earn more money!
    /s
    I don't get the point of those threads. Hackers don't have to publish anything. If they want, they can help Nintendo. If you're against it then do something, help the community, discover an exploit before them and publish it.

    A penny for your thought?

    Don't make a stereotype out of the community. From where did you get the idea that we would use homebrew to pirate only? I never had the intention, ever.

    They're there to bring good, not bad. Stop blaming everyone.

    I just hope they won't prevent us from homebrewing the Switch. I don't care about piracy.
