    It sounds like you're describing Windows SLIC, which for Windows 7 was trivial to inject the license into ram or bios to spoof that your machine came with a Windows 7 license. But on Windows 10 it needs signing and authentication.

    It's unlikely to be like Windows 7, more like Windows 10. So the license will be written somewhere, probably on the microsd. The license will only work on the switch it's generated for.

    I've not seen a properly cracked version of Windows 10 yet.

    Nah.. i'm talking about illegal programs that are used to crack accounts (psn, netflix, mega, etc..) and are paid
    they have a special license method so it writes the license to the ram or mobo

    I found out that axiogame has the cheapest price for the OS at 25$. Are they reliable?

    Writing to ram is kinda pointless, because it's gone when you turn off. I assume on the programs you're talking about they have to be activated each time you reboot. We know that isn't how SX OS works, the license is stored somewhere on the switch that survives cold boots.

    Writing to the motherboard sounds like some UEFI thing, which wouldn't be that hard to investigate. The only thing stopping you would be code obfuscation.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Denuvo is quite resiliant.

    SX Pro comes with SX OS, you can buy SX OS separately if you don't want their dongle.

    SX OS vs. Atmosphère

    SX OS:
    + most likely sooner available
    + runs backups right away
    - costs money
    - no source available
    - you're dependent from a company (TX)
    - no emunand for quite some time (as stated in their FAQ) so no using newest FW while staying as low as possible with original FW

    Atmosphère:
    + free
    + open source
    + emunand
    + mainly developed by a god
    - no one knows when it's finished
    - no one knows when it'll run backups

    It's not a feature of Atmosphère directly but will definitely be "solved" by a homebrew that someone will do at some point.

    I don't care that much about backups though as long as I can use the eShop in an emuNAND or something like that while keeping my Switch on 3.0.0 ...

    Scires has stated that he is not implementing anti-piracy features as its pointless so piracy will be enabled by default through Atmosphere. Someone else just has to make the backup launcher.

    Can you give some arguments instead of speaking void?

    Does a dev need the final release version of Atmosphere to make a backup launcher, or is it possible that they might already be working on it since a few weeks, but haven't announced it to the world yet ?

    I don't think so
    TX was working on this for over a year and they finally achieved it and they are really really professionnal in this domain

    When it comes out, I'll see what people say and buy it if it seems cool. I'd feel pretty silly if Atmosphere came out before it did and I had the preorder still sitting there.

    Not saying that people who've preordered are silly, of course. Just my own preference.
