    Mod chips suppliers (or flashcards for that matter) only stay in business as long as it generates money.
    After a few years when sales are down (nintendo found a permanent way to block) they disappear as quick as they appear.
    SX will do the same... In the meantime... Enjoy

    How can you say that....??? Past experiences showed that support and updates from companies making modchips, flashcards and so on are not reliable...it is the shady business they are in.
    3DS gateway and stargate and a lot of ds flashcards, wii mod chips .... and I know that there are CFW for all these but just to make a point.
    When Nintendo finds a way to block sx modchips or dongles or newer games have some way of detecting modchips and fail to start, the sxos-business plan falls apart and so does support.

    Team xecuter has provided support from the beginning of the Switch hacking scene. It's not to idiotic to think they will continue.

    yes you mean the dongles they cannot block on a hardware level which forced them to update the swithc hardware to patch out the RCM exploit.
    or the current modchip they made when the switch was mostly blocked with mariko units.
    Or you mean to current bypass which runs on a hardware level aswell for mariko units and cannot be fixed without another hardware revision. (so currently 57million units are affected)

    or the fact it supports payloads ( that need updated to work at this moment)
    so when they are you can boot other custom firmwares which will have their own updates

    wii didnt really have a modchip scene because the cfw scene was really strong with bypasses early on and they required updated constantly
    3ds gateway worked all the way to end of life even if it was crappy but it had bad support from the get go
    you know like the brick code they included so clones did that.

    stargate was a meme that was made when 3ds was EOL with ntrboot being around

    yes the 3 objects you compared had custom firmware that worked on all systems easily that anyone could access (from an early stage)
    which is why they didnt sell as well, in this case its a modchip.
    also the price on these are fair considering you get the chip sxos license and etc.

    £40 for a modchip is cheap and also gives you auto rcm

    the homeade auto rcms are like £15 each for an adafruit etc


    tell me more about how sx hasnt been active and will die quickly if anything they just leaped forward bounds again.

    my point is I do think you should not trust a Chinese company (nothing against chinese!!) which only purpose is to enable piracy on the switch. Today they are in business, tomorrow they are gone.

    The OP asked 'will there be support?'.... my answer "until its stops making money.... '

    Anti piracy measures are going to be made...either by firmware upgrades, either by games checking for 'whatever'...the DS and 3ds implemented AP in games later on...and yes they can be defeated but that needs support....and there we have it!

    except the antipiracy on the wii had to do with the way the console read the discs and dual layer being used (which was also an issue with older drives and legit games)
    and 3ds antipiracy was literally the console requiring higher firmware versions.
    the ds antipiracy ran way differently that newer generations because it read from the cards itself and they were easily patched.

    Both of these implementations have no effect on the switch especially with a chip that on a hardware level works on all firmwares, especially on the stage where all games are digital now

    blame nintendos poor implementation of ticket systems and console security



    remember how much of a shitshow freeshop was and how long it lasted

    That would, for instance, mean TX does not support Xbox stuff from previous generations. Their support forum suggests otherwise. They are stil helping out older, non profitable, Xbox en Xbox 360 owners.

    So yes, it's about the money (it's a company of course). But their forum also suggest they care about prolonged support.

    (Edit) I am aware they are in a grayish business so things can go sideways real fast. That's an occupational hazzard all of these groups/businesses have.

    A support forum for other users to help you is not at all what people mean by "support." You want to keep Gateway 3DS in mind for a more recent and relevant example.

    If Nintendo found a way to make games not work with cfw, they would have already. The thing is, they can’t. Nintendo also can’t block the modchip. It takes advantage of the Tegra x1, uses an exploit that won’t be fixed until they use a new and better chip that has tighter security.

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

    Except they ended support because they didn’t want to lose money because of all the cfw that were popping up.

    How is this relevant here? Unless you would like to derail a potential usefull thread into a speculative and wrong gateway=TX thread.

    The thing that make asked that question is cause read Nintendo file a law suits and win they shutdown team xecutor. I was under impression that Nintendo might release an update to block them in the future. But as for now any update that come I can freely update sysnand normally to system update right. And the chip should still boot SX os ?

    Of course, N will update their FW so SXOS wil not work. It'll take Xecutor some days or weeks to make a new version of SXOS that works with the new FW.

    This cat and mouse game will go on untill the updates stop and a new console gets announced.

    Personally I think "Is The Modchip Will Continue" should be TX's new slogan @garyopa

    Somebody will always find a way to get around any roadblock that impedes progress.

    Well.... I hate to be the one who says 'told you....'.. Not for the reason I thought it would be but support for this modchip has become very unsure..
