    This explanation makes a lot of sense to me.
    Thank you for the insight :)

    On the website dgchips (dot) com, a "German" reseller (can't post a link, yet), they used this picture. Could this be the modchip or is this something else? Sorry if the answer is obvious. I'm not following the scene actively

    Nope, thats a trinket m0. It's used if you dont wanna use a dongle everytime, but does the same as the dongle.

    This claim is just as believable and well-evidenced as the original claim, so this should be added to the first post immediately @linuxares

    Sorry but no. If people want the device, they got to learn they got to stay on the version. Even if it will hurt them economically.

    There's quite a large and comprehensive list of "It won't and can't happen ever" homebrew things, from hackable Sega Saturn to proper homebrew on 3DS :D

    Found something on a french site where all the pics are included. They probably blurred it on purpose so that the serial number isn't readable ^^

    Good luck with the 2^256 bruteforce necessary to crack the RSA-2048 private key :)

    If there's anything homebrew community is good at, it's successfully coming up with alternative solutions for complicated tasks.

    Marketing 101:

    Drop hints/leaks (create/test sales potential)
    Release "some" info (bigfoot footage)
    Maximize/Leverage calendar - (ie, just before thanksgiving / xmas..)
    $Profit$

    and if they are smart they are having part numbers sanded off after they are built.

    There’s only two ways to get the RSA private key:
    1. 2^256 (~115792089237316195423570985008687907853269984665640564039457584007913129639936) bruteforce
    2. break into Nintendo and steal it
    Neither of those will happen.

    I'm implying that there may be just enough trickery to achieve the goal by working around the "key getting" process - something not that uncommon for the scene.

    Anyone from the old DirecTV hacking days is snickering right about now knowing option 2 has a variant.

    The key is locked up in an HSM somewhere within Nintendo, that HSM being the only thing in the world to contain the key, not even higher up Nintendo employees have it.
    To steal the key one would have to break into Nintendo, get to the HSM without anybody noticing, and hack the HSM on their first try without it noticing (they have anti-tamper and will kill themselves if they detect anything funky)
    It’s not happening.

    This was also said during the days of the H and HU cards. In particular, it was the external design team of the actual hardware that leaked the details of how to glitch it. I'm not saying that this is the case here - it's EXTREMELY unlikely to be leaked. I'm just making an amused snarky old-timer comment that there's always Option 2b: Someone stupid or disgruntled can leak it. Nothing more, nothing less, so don't think I'm disagreeing with you here.

    Maybe they are taking preorders to lock people into purchasing an expensive product. The modchip might be released at 100$ and than you are thinking: "I already invested 1$, can't let it go wasted". Unless they have a refund policy for preorders.

    *Raiding Nintendo for Master-Key Facebook Event incoming*

    But to be serious, I always expect nothing. Im perfectly fine with Fusee Gelee on my OG Switch and i would also be perfectly fine if it wouldnt be there. Homebrew is something i really like, and im also ready to do some stuff to get it, but i wont ask for any ETA on something that might not even exist. For me Homebrew is the Extra Cherry on TOp of the Cake the Nintendo Switch is. CFW Wars is bullshit and everyone who thinks that Team Xecuter is an Holy untouchable Entity (These people exist for some Reason) is an Idiot in my Eyes. Tho everyone who feels the need to just Hate on SX and their Users just for the Sake of doing so (ANd oh boy there are a lots of these ppl's) isnt better either. In the end we should just wait and see what happens. If TX has something for Mariko we can be Happy and if they have nothing (Which is more likely in my oppinion) it wont be the end of the World either. Fanboy*ism is the cancer of Every scene and i cant stand it anymore.

    So just chill down, drink an Cup of Tea and wait for the things to come. Everything else, including Hating each other is just Wasted Time in my Opinion
