It has been 4 full years since the Switch has been released, and 2 years since Mariko was released. Yet, we still have no softmod for Mariko. What's taking so long?

Unless Nvidia make bootrom mistake again it ain't happening on Mariko unit, that why there is no softmod on Mariko unit, Fusee-Gelee took about 10 months to be discovered, seriously if you want a softmod then discover your own.

I guess if you really wanted you could transplant an exploitable motherboard into a new switch.

yep you can even buy only OG v1 boards from ebay much cheaper then buying the whole console or buy broken with damaged screen or with dead battery and bad usb c port so lots of options there i got several OG v1 units for very cheap just by looking on local sites 2 of them just opened never used

Dude, Nintendo doesn't sell non-patched switches anymore. And used ones will be banned.
So what if used ones are banned? A hackable console is far more valuable than an unbanned one. Think about it, what is more worthwhile: having the entire Switch library at the palm of your hands or the ability to play online?

The latter. There's only a few games I played through out of the ones I pirated anyway.

Just for the record, as a hacker who's been involved in every cfw-related exploit for the switch and works on this stuff regularly: it's probably not going to happen.

I've sunk ~300-400 hours of my time investigating Mariko exploit stuff.

There are no trustzone bugs. This means no custom firmware.

There are no kernel bugs. This means no shitty fake custom firmware where you pretend you hacked trustzone, which is something I was prepared to work to support if I found the right bug.

Nintendo got the security right this time. Waiting for a software exploit is almost certainly not gonna do anything for you.

if you don't mind me asking, (since you are here) for unpatched units Is 7.0 software cfw exploit realistic or not? I don't mean now or the near future.

(I don't want to hold you by the books since you already do so much for the community, and would be really rude and unrealistic to ask for a time or date. As I'd imagine your more busy keeping up with Nintendo's shenanigans per update and continued implementation/expanding features of atmosphere)

But I heard that 7.0 is the last software entry point that can have cfw. Has something got in the way of that by any chance?

So what, am I seriously just going to shell out $60 when Nintendo releases another game I want?

This should also be deja vu. Useless for mariko units because deja vu were patched with fw update 8.0.0. And mariko units come with 8.0.0

read part in bold I never mention mariko units, I was specifically mentioning unpatched units, so switch units that can use the rcm exploit/non mariko. Please read my whole message next time as the context matters.

you can buy SX Core mod chip on Aliexpress or just get OG v1 RCM exploitable second hand
plus developers have no reason to focus on Mariko since theres hard mod and so many OG v1 Erista units out there
so if you want Hacked Switch you have options
so theres no reason to complain and act like entitled school girl
DM me a link, please!

I'm not sure, but isn't every firmware on unpatched units hackable?
He’s asking about a software hack (like deja vu). You’re thinking of RCM, which a) requires hardware to trigger the RCM, and to send the payload (whether that be a computer, phone, or modchip). And b) it also runs code on bare metal, before any ofw is loaded, so it’s not exactly “hacking” the firmware. “Hacking” the firmware in this sense would be permanent and not require hardware to send a payload.
