    That's great, always nice to know that the temp still has people who don't completely lose their minds when someone disagrees. But, arguments where both sides are pretty resolute aren't usually all that fruitful.

    Why would I install firmware that has potential to brick my Switch?

    Same here tbh, i think they have done an excellent job and with the speedy updates its getting even better. The only negative thing i could say is that they never mentioned anything about the brick code.

    You just have to trust these guys are good enough to remove the brick codes completely.

    It's like cracking Denuvo. A bad Denuvo crack will crash the game. A bad SX crack will brick your switch. :D

    Switch games cost only around $50 (sometimes a little more, sometimes much less), why don't you just buy them if you want to play them? Same end goal anyway, right?

    Nope that wasnt it, it was something that using layered created custom errors, and that the modified one was using an unfinished product so if those errors were sent to nintendo that would get you banned

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    found it

    Quoted from SciresM's warning:
    Btw, I had assumed it went without saying -- if you're playing with unofficial builds of work in progress layeredfs stuff that is broken (and crashes frequently, consequentially), you shouldn't be anywhere near online and shouldn't even have online enabled. I use custom error codes for debugging, and if a report with one of those goes up to N's server from your console, you will almost certainly get banned from online. If you're concerned about that, don't use stuff until it's done.

    Ah I see, is it conjecture or is it something that will happen?
    If it's the latter, then, if SciresM never gave any warnings, yeah I'd agree that using layeredFS would be a worse idea than SX. Though it's not like playing online with either of them is a good idea.

    Well he gave the warning after the banwave started, because I guess he was made clear that dont pirating games was enough, but well the wave happened wiping a LOT of layered users

    For the sake of clarity, that doesn't appear to be what he said at all.


    Q: "All this is cool, but we (community) would like to receive a direct answer - will you release that crack on public or it's personal challenge only?"

    A: "I don't see why this would be kept private so..."

    Both his tweets and his blog post are referring to his decryption of the bootloader. He has not progressed any further than that. Maybe someone should ask him to clarify.

    In the blog post he linked to from his twitter page he explicitly says he's cracking the DRM. Just decrypting the bootloader won't do that.

    I know that. But right now all he has is the decrypted bootloader. There is nothing else to release right now until he is able to progress further. People seem to think a full working crack release is imminent, which is simply not the case.
