    More dick wagging with something that will never be released, why am I not surprised?

    Other X1 devices run Android, which is already wide open for whatever you want to do with it.

    Well I agree with that, but that's because they want as many Switch FWs open as possible, not because they're worried about running a Switch exploit on Shield TV.

    Its Never Public. That'd be too easy for the end user. Oh and nintendo won't keep paying them not to release anymore.

    There are like three teams working on Switch. Now when something gets released from any of them, everybody is gonna jump down your throat in specific. So great job with the shitposts.

    TX, ReSwitched, f0? Only f0 is known for consistently not releasing anything.

    Switch has been pwned super fast relative to other consoles, people are just too impatient.

    This has ramifications far beyond tablets and phones. Its in cars.

    Releasing this is borderline negligent, and potentially quite legally perilous.

    Don't expect a release from any group... not looking to make a quick buck.

    I don't even know how to respond to this. These exploits are made to hack the Switch's custom OS, which is not going to be similar to whatever the TX1 in cars is running. Not to mention if a person is skilled enough, that hardware is already hackable. Along with the on-board computers for just about every car.

    Airplane mode is never enabled when the switch is docked that's bad advice for anyone who uses the dock ever which I imagine is almost everyone.

    The coldboot exploit has nothing to do with the Switch's OS, its a complete bypass of the bootchain and as such is applicable to all Tegra X1 or forks of the same bootchain.

    Its the Tegra, and this exploit isn't public even in generic Tegra applications because the ramifications of its existence are well understood.

    Simply put: this will not be released unless someone completely immoral releases it with a 'leak' and that person will have a lot of shit on their head.

    I see. It's gonna get out one way or another, so it's on Nvidia to fix in the next SoC. Fuck-ups happen, obviously they had that GTX 970 fiasco, and Intel had those massive CPU flaws/exploits as well.

    Odds are TX's hardware solution uses the same/similar exploit, and I'd bet on them releasing.

    Worst case scenario when this goes wide: Nvidia's stock plummets, I get to buy in cheap. xD
