    You got any Proof it's FW dependent? Since that's what everyones crying for in this thread anyways.

    For right now, the only speculation I've seen is, the modchip might be a direct mod chip as in you just push agaisnt the board and solder. The reason I think for this is because they say there's two different boards, for lite and the newer switch model.

    the "solderless" version, if it's not a usb-C dongle is pretty much most likely going to be Pogo pins, because anything else is pretty much dogshit so to speak.

    Also will the launch model switch mod chip differ from the newer model, or is it the same exploit

    What makes you think it's any more or less firmware dependent than the current methods? This claim is completely unfounded.

    I am curious about one thing: what could be a reasonable explanation for the present absence of “physical” proof (e.g. photos or videos) of TX’s new solution?

    I promise I’m not being polemic (I like Atmosphere and I’m a happy TX customer) - just curious.

    Wonder that if there will be a chance for a permanent CFW (instead of injecting payload all the time) since the Tegra exploit won't be used. I mean it's feasible theoritically.

    It still uses a form of the Tegra exploit a chip has to be used to insert a glitch so that the code which allows the loading from the dongles. But once a chip is used you also no longer need a dongle.

    Weird. I don't recall anyone telling or forcing anyone to go pre-order or buy anything. If you don't want to wait for an Official Announcement before doing anything, whether resellers have pre-orders or not then that's kinda on you.... :blink:

    "You can't have permanent CFW without it being properly signed by Nintendo; that's why we need an exploit to load any unsigned code aka homebrew/CFW" so far this isn't possible

    Why would he make a statement denying any of the bogus claims that get dropped in these threads? What incentive does he have to engage?
    Sounds like you know an awful lot about this chip. The chip allows you to use a dongle but you don't need a dongle anymore? Which is it? You're clearly just a troll that made a new account for this thread.

    I wish they said something useful like "don't update from this firmware" or "there will be no firmware restriction"

    If this required everyone to stay on a lower firmware, don't you think that would be something that is stated as early as possible so people could use it?

    edit: I wouldn't go any higher than the firmware versions that are supported by SX OS (obviously).

    Thank you for the valuable information, may we get a source? Or are you the source?

    He's probably saying, that if they already need a modchip for the new "exploit" they could probably include something like a trinket m0 on the same board, which would be the equivalent to a dongle but mounted inside the switch.

    The way I see it TX did a heads up with their resellers to inform them of the upcoming solution without it being perfected so they can get ready. There was a leak by one such impatient reseller and now TX either has to show some ghetto / incomplete / buggy setup as proof or wait and drop a finished product. Maybe them showing us a preview would alert copycats (irony, I know) of some exploit that they could also get out to the market in the same time TX releases theirs? We can only speculate but this is how it looks to me: Something's close but we heard about it before we were meant to.
