    How the fuck Nintendo should patch the MN1's kexploit, if it is not public? With magic?

    If someone is able to find them Nintendo will also be able to do so.
    This is what has happened with since 5.4.0

    What makes you think that because an exploit is not public they can't debug and fix their code on their own?

    not the existing OSDriver exploit. He means the current (private) 5.5.X exploits that haven't been posted on GitHub, nor made public, yet.

    Nothing was patched in 5.5.1. You're probably thinking of 5.5.0.

    It could be from someone leaking it (which happens a lot) but usually its just the company debugging their own code just like the devs here do to find the exploit in the first place. Its a lot harder for our homebrew devs to debug than it is for the company that writes the code and has full access to everything written for their console. Therefor they can find it a lot faster than us. This is why public releases turn into a waiting game based on when they find what we have found and patch it. Then it can be made public to be used on firmware lower than when the revision was made.

    I think they can find the exploit the same way MN1 found the exploit?
