"the USB loader or an sd loader" nope.

The scenario described is "browser exploit + nvservices GPU dma for homebrew".

This literally doesn't even give you permission to access the SD card, let alone use USB.

Even if you sent game data over websockets connection from browser, there's no way to play it/create a process that the game can execute successfully in.

You would need substantially heavier compromises for piracy, what I described is not sufficient for it and would not enable it.



Not via a software exploit, there won't be. I really do feel qualified to say this, as a hacker and cfw developer.
The only exception would be a Sky3ds esk cartridge.

Is it any better than CVE-201604567 or just another entrypoint

You mean pegasus?

a) I don't know why you referred to pegasus via CVE, given pegaswitch is named after it
b) ... it's a webkit 0-day. Using it compromises the browser exactly how pegasus compromises the browser, which is to say it gives you ROP under the browser process.

This is, as I mentioned in the post you're responding to, insufficient to do anything interesting without further vulnerabilities.

more SX cores, or clones of them would be fine surely, why are we trying to re-invent another vulnerability, when one already exists ?

Isn't the idea to emulate a cartridge 1:1? I'm no programmer
Of course but you cannot simply emulate a cartridge even if you make something that fits into the slot. You need the proper software and that requires proper understanding of how the Switch reads cartridges which has not been fully detailed mostly because it is unnecessary. Similar reasoning can be applied to the Falcon which was largely unused until Nintendo started using it for booting higher firmware versions to which hackers cracked it open. A full understanding of the console is not necessary for all exploits.

Sigh, I just want my Switch to feel less bland, heck even the Wii had more life to it, and it released in 2007. And downgrade my firmware so I don't have that stupid NSO button.

It seems it's going to be another 3 years wait for a Mariko hack.

And no, I am ABSOLUTELY NOT going to purchase a chip from a random sketchy site (as new ones aren't being made already) & solder it. I do not know how to even solder. Plus, the switch has proprietary screws.

Sigh, it's been 4 months and you're still going on like an entitled little brat?

1) Find a non sketchy site to purchase from
2) Learn how to solder
3) Buy the proper screwdriver
4) Shut up already

No one's stopping you from finding your own exploit

Well dont expect a software hack or a RCM hack anytime soon... The only route is a mod chip. This is the router I'll be going

It’s the sketchy modchip or nothing. Mariko will never have proper software hax.

Pay someone to install chip and never publicize them.

Public on forum led Nintendo to crack it down, even they used this forum to do cat and mouse game.
