    I really, really hope that this doesn't lead to piracy in anyway.

    And, have fun bricking your consoles, it'll be hilarious to watch all the tears from people.

    Great news!

    Hopefully we'll have a cfw soon once all the writeups are done.

    The only thing that matters is if they can get us a proper backup solution before any other people do it.

    I don't think we yet know if the 2.0 exploit also works on 4.x. If it does, the exploit needs to be kept secret until Nintendo patches it and it would be foolish to release information about it now.

    Same, I noticed they updated the Changes.md Today with "SWITCH: Initial Nintendo Switch port, based on libtransistor SDK" it's coming! :P
     

  8. The main guy said it’s for up to 3.x only so think that’s a given at this point.

    Not a developer here, but I have a question.
    Wouldn't be possibile, in the future, to create a CFW like the ones Dark Alex made that took part of their features from FW 1.0 and 1.5 on the PSP in order to reenable vulnerabilities in later firmwares? Asking this because I've read that CFW may become a reality on newer firmwares and I find similarities with the PSP scene's early days (but maybe there aren't any). So to summarize my question: do you guys think it is possibile, one day, to create some sort of hybrid firmware like the first PSP CFWs were?

    I swear, if I close my eyes for even 5mins.... ( I've literally been up all night, and dozed off sit'n upright in my chair, just mere mins before this was posted. *heavy eyes*)

    @SciresM - So the issue with CFW on 2.x+ is that you would need to coldboot -> sleep -> warmboot w/code execution, in order to begin the CFW. It is not a problem with losing access to the CFW when going to sleep, but rather that you would need to run the code exec on every reboot. Am I understanding the write-up correctly?

    Well, as a lot of users, I prefer a soft (and free solution), but even paying for it (don't know how...) keep in mind an hardware mod has a price, and if it's the way TX team chose, well, they couldn't predict how fast develpment was going to be.
    In a sense, even if SciresM does what he does as a hobby, he doesn't want people to screw their consoles with a f*****d up solder job, he knows every bit of his hack and knows how harmful or harmless it can get, and maybe, I'm theorizing that maaaaaaaybe, having TX in the run for hax made progresses go as fast as it's going now.

    So in a sense : Thanks TX team (and if anyone has to be fucked it's the tiny solderers for tiny motherboards ;))

    Come on! almost a news everyday, I never saw that, and when homebrew will appear, it's going to be a real news fest!!! we may have the ultimate gaming handheld system right now, those who wish piracy will have piracy, but beside of that, having CFW so early opens the door to a PSP equivalent in terms of customization, control, and homebrews (I presume...I read about the PSP scene but never owned one).

    Anyway, thanks for everyone involved in the scene, thanks to SciresM, and thanks for all the important names that are not daily quoted in gbatemp or Discord.

    Let's share knowledge! it's the first scene I follow where you have so much details and encouraged to be involved in! When you see what Nintendo is going to do with its Nintendo labo, wait to see what the homebrew comunity will do, not just pongs clones and doom ports...

  18. The people on 4.x don’t share that opinion.

    ey mate, i see you in alot of threads writing things like that 'no piracy' etc.

    but i have the feeling if you are given the option to use homebrew (cfw mayhap) etc.
    i think you will be using them too.

    and like someone else stated, lets not turn this thread into a piracy related thing.

    congratz to the OP , he is doing too much for the community.
    thank you !

    Maybe not for another 6 - 12 months, but it will come out eventually. It's all about patience

    Can we keep the noise level to a minimum in this thread please?
    I'd like to be able to discuss the technical aspects of such an accomplishment for once, instead of sifting through countless pages of bickering.

    Thanks,
