    Not really, it's just harder and takes longer to find a new exploit.
    So you're fine, it's not like they'll be releasing homebrew a minute right after whatever they'll be explaining.

    Bit over 4 and a half months and it's '18.
    Switch got released in what? '16?

    You still have to deal with scrolling past it on forums and subconsciously getting angered by it.

    I've got a 128 GB USB in me Wii U but I'm thinking of removing it.
    It has no games and the only games I play, I can also read from the original disc.

    It will still be until 2018 for anything to actually be made. This is just the major access point and its been known for a while. Someone has to actually MAKE something out of this.

    Too late, updated for Sonic Mania. I fucking knew this would happen :/ Hopefully something can be done on 3.0.1 some time soon/near future. Doubt I'll be buying any more games for a while anyway.

    Hell, maybe I'll try grab a second hand Switch....

    This won't be the only major exploit. There's never just one.

    Meh, I don't know if I can justify buying another switch just for 3.0.0.

    Nope. That's why I can't be damned to care.

    "Ooo we have an exploit" means nothing for the end users.

    I didn't know how to delete the 3.01 update a month or so ago and didn't know Switch already downloaded it onto my Switch, so I thought pressing update would say WIFI is not on or something and it updated, I guess I will just keep it at 3.01 and wait, I'd rather have homebrew like SNES in HD and on both on the go and TV than for Nintendos way of trickling classic games slowly for years to come, once SNES and NES games come, which is the subscription based thing next year.

    The more talk I see the more excited I'm getting. How cool would it be if we were able to install a full functioned legit browser, Netflix, Mame emulator, or hell it would be awesome to load in Android somehow since this is pretty much a tablet right?

    I bought another Switch 18 days ago. When I saw this "news", I opened the box up and checked the firmware version. It's on 2.2.0.

    It won't exist by fall. It won't exist after a few weeks, the churn rate is too high.
