    Not really, Schrödinger can only be applied if there´s no information.
    In our case, TX has already proven that they can do modchips for various consoles in the past so it is kinda "safe" to say that they already managed to get CFW running on those Switch units otherwhise they wouldn´t give out informations like that.

    Is spreading lies a forum bannable offense?

    Can you prove it's a lie?

    Do you think this mod will work in every Switch Lite or just in those with the oldest firmware (8.0.1)?

    I know we can only speculate, but I have a Switch Lite (version 8.1.1; it was the firmware that came out of the box) and I'm afraid that maybe it won't work in my console. Also, I really want to play PK and it requires an update to link my account (to be able to play online). I don't want to update, for obvious reasons but I also want to play online. :unsure:

    Just wait till any news appear . Then you will act regarding the situation . OR you just can return or sell your switch and buy hackable switch (so you wont wait for the hack ) or wait with the money (this give you chance to buy a classic switch (not lite ) in case the hack wont work) .

    I bought my switch (firmware 8.0.1 marico unit) before any rumors and news . So i am just waiting .

    no way to know of course but if history is any guide then i would say it will support all FW to date or else we would have heard something from TX telling people not to update
    remember when GW had an exploit for the new 3DS they got the word out to not update past 9.x ( i think it was 9.0 ,9.1 or 9.2) if you wanted to use GW
    TX wants customers if their exploit was in any way limited to a specific FW range then i strongly suspect that they would have either told us directly or leaked something through one of their back channels to preserve their maximum customer potential

    That´s not what i said, i said that TX has done such things IN THE PAST, you can say they got a reputation when it comes to modchips and they always kept their promises.
    So, imo it´s plausible to believe TX when they claim they found a hardware exploit and preparing a launch.

    Sure we can´t be 100% sure but it´s a huge difference WHO makes such claims, a new company with no history in modding consoles or a company which is in the business for over a decade and delivered working products

    I believe waiting is the smartest decision, but also the hardest...

    It really makes sense.

    Thank you both for the replies. :)

    My guess is, there IS a further exploit - and TX have been extremely lucky in finding it.

    However, I`m thinking it will be hardware-based.

    From what I can gather, there appears to be a way to glitch the Tegra into running unsigned code, from a power-on scenario.

    A bit like the fusee-gelee exploit, but rather than being triggered by pushing a payload and corrupting the stack, using improper ipatches, this one will be more akin to the RGH hack in X360.

    They must be glitching a line to make the Tegra think it has dementia and running a payload to it, again via RCM.

    But this method is neither consistent or guaranteed and will require hardware to connect to whatever point they are exploiting(in X360, it was the reset line, a 200mS pulse high if I remember correctly.

    This new one will be doing something similar. But they probably cannot get the timings sorted, and due to production errors, every unit may require a different "pulse".

    They will NOT have found a new exploit in Horizon. TX are good, but they are not THAT good.

    None of this is fact, just my opinion based on what I have managed to scavenge on the web

    The question is will it lead to console ban or not

    Ban risk will be the same.

    Why people would ever risk going online with CFW is beyond me...

    Do you think it's going to require soldering on the lite model as well? If so, which soldering iron would you recommend?
