    Kate has collected and answered the most common questions she's gotten regarding Fusée Gelée. Most notably she explains the three "types" of FG hacks, software, hardware (temporary) and hardware (permanent).

    Enjoy!

    Kate herself responded to this thread on page 26, thanks Kate!

    Is this the CFW, or something different? I'm confused. Why does it mention soldering, and tethering?

    Great read! I already read most of this on her twitter, but having it all organized is helpful. Kudos to the Reswitched team!

    Fusee Gelee is the exploit used to gain access to CFW / HB

    You can brake it down like this:

    - Entrypoint: A place where an attack can be done (e.g a specific area of the web browser or a game that loads stuff of a SD card)
    - Exploit: The code that will "run" unauthorized code through the entrypoint.
    - Payload: The code you want to run such as the HB launcher.

    Are you selling for a profit or updating? She does say...

    This is a method of hacking the Switch to gain access to it. It's a vulnerability at boot, and it can't be patched via software updates.

    i got that answer of her from twitter but what i understood is that each firmware will have its own method.
    i dont mind modding the switch, i used to mod 360's and ps3 so its a walk in a park for me, the unclear answer is that i know i have better privlages on other firmwares, but what use will i gain from that. thats my question.
    im not looking to resell it, im just looking for a clear answer to the 1.0 user like me and others thats all.

    That was a pretty fun read. It's really nice of her to be as transparent as she is, too

    Very transparent read that they made. Wish that people would invest more on firmwares Bellow 3.0.0 and above 1.0 since they stated that those too had lots of exploits but alas that seems like it'll never be the case. Doesn't really matter anyway since we'll get CFW on just about all of them.

    Well that was a good read, lots of good information

    Completely unnecessary especially coming from a person who got offended by another users user name

    He clearly wasn't actually offended, he was just being super contrarian in a poor attempt at a troll (which a shocking number of people took the bait to, if I may add)

    One thing I am still not sure of, is if this will be a permanent kind of CFW like what we have for the 3DS currently.
    By CFW I mean full-on system firmware WITHOUT the need of an emunand.
    I do hope it is basically a "take control of everything" on boot and that we don't have to rely on emunands at all.
    I find the use of emunands to be cumbersome when it comes to storage space.

    I believe this technically would allow that, but they are going with emuNAND.

    So, there are going to be different versions depending on FW or ease of use?

    I liked it, but how can you say that they’ve(TX) enabled piracy? That’s unfair considering that they ban people asking for help in the USB Pro/Drive FW help section if the ABGX logs show the game as pirated. @DinohScene knows the FW scene better than I do, but I know for a fact that Martin C, Oggy, NoFel, Krafter, and a lot of others that help there hammer piracy related stuff. The 0day thing, I just found out what that meant so I can’t really argue lol.

    Edit: and now I see this shit...

    Wow... that’s faaaaar from what I’m used to seeing. I’m honestly disappointed they’d allow it just dropped there like that. What happened to “backups”. Maybe that’s why you don’t see the old names anymore....
