    Someone spilled the beans earlier today, and took photos of their Switch console with the new TX Switch Modchip installed!

    Pictures they say are worth more than 1000 words, and in this case earlier today MaxConsole posted 3 of them, showcasing what appears to be the new TX Switch ModChip installed on console. :)

    Let's hope it gets reverse engineered and the method is exposed.

    Damn, it's been a while since I've opened a Switch. That's not the original charging port, right?

    Interesting, I don't think that we've seen a true modchip since Gen 6. I had thought that consoles had become too complex to be defeated by pure hardware, but I guess that might not have been the case after all. Hardware used to be TX's bread-and-butter, so it'd be fitting if they were the ones to bring it back.

    Looks like it interrupts the NAND data to allow cfw. So it sits between the NAND and mainboard.

    if this isn't stolen..... then it's PHOTOSHOPPED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    i still refuse to believe it!!!!!!!

    but yeah, congrats to them. I don't need it (yet?) and I'm sticking to Atmosphere but this is a great thing for the community either way!
    i probably missed it but will this modchip just allow injection of SXOS? or will there also be a new CFW?

    I'm confident they'll lock it out to their own sxos only, not allow for other CFW.

    Would have been sweet if they could have added another internal micro sd card slot, but still cool to see there is some sort of solution for now .. any idea how many wires ?

    Obviously fake, their "evidence" is png. Real hackers use tif

    I'm more interested where they "claim" their "modchip" connects to.

    (I'm being ironic btw)

    Oh totally, just a matter of time : )

    I just hope that people get other CFW's working on the modchip easily

    So exciting, TX releases a true hardware modchip. It's like to good old days in the early 00's. I'll get it just to fiddle around and reliving the good old nostalgia.
