    Yeah I always wondered what happened to their original exploit. They advertised a "soldered and solderless" solution. Then the RCM exploit was released so it kind of made their solution useless for the original switch revisions.

    I don't personally have any opinion on the matter.

    Huh good catch. Probably why they didn't bother with photos (giving them the benefit of the doubt that this alleged encounter even happened) - "here's our new hack for Mariko switches" / "hurr durr that's not Mariko".

    Thjs is such a toxic community at times. I don't get it

    None of you (me included) are entitled to anything. Yet you all act like it

    First everyone complained and said that having an exploit like this is highly unlikely(understandably so) and said to take everything with a grain of salt until proven otherwise

    Than Costello(our admin) was able to confirm that the exploit was indeed real, and you all started complaining about how you want to see it with your eyes otherwise it is fake.

    Now we have another source confirming it's real and you are all still complaining

    You guys don't know what you want do you ? Sounds like th switch scene isn't happy unless you are all complaining about something. It's honestly a miracle that any devs release anything publically at all at this point.

    Nothing is ever good enough

    "Another source"...

    Gary posted about the mod.

    Gary confirmed to Costello that it was real (as far as we know, this confirmation was only words).

    Gary posted this latest "news".

    I gues on earth.
    Costello said what TX told him. They gave him no prove. So even if Trump were to say it, it would still have the same weight as before.
    Putin told me, that I can have all of his inheritance. Trust me because Putin told me.

    what a silly statement. This really shows such a immature mentality.....none of this is a competition. This isn't a market. Atmosphere does not do this for commercial motives. Only TX does.

    You're "us vs them" mentality is everything that is wrong and toxic in this community.

    Everyone benefits for any amount of security research done at any sector of any ecosystem. Whatever TX puts out will be reverse engineered just as they themselves have reverse engineered (if they don't just straight copy and paste as we've seen) others products.

    Im super stoked and can't wait to see what they put out. It will be nice to see TX *actually finally* contribute something meaningful back to this ecosystem instead of the copy and paste job they've been profiting off of for the last 2 years. The only nice software SX has "put out" has been purchased from blawar, which is a vastly improved version of tinfoil. Not even a in-house job. Props for good software engineering should be given to blawar, not TX. Im happy he got paid I guess? Skilled labor should be compensated, though financial compensation is not the only form of compensation that matters.

    The best engineers in the scene do their work for attribution and for the continued education of their hobby. The real security work is done behind the scenes by people who are not in it for commercial gains.

    Parting note - This isn't the first time TX has made claims about bypassing a specific security. All im going to say is that they have a history of fibbing about this. I will believe this when the product is in the hands of reputable members and fuctional on units. Don't hold your breath guys. If this was truly already accomplished production would be underway and it would be 1-2 months before we have a finished product. Don't buy the hype, believe what you see only when its real. The fact that no timeline was given should tell you the truth - They probably don't have a working product. Maybe they have good idea's or plausible solutions....but we've been saying the same thing about fusion for decades. Doesn't make it a reality.

    Hardware mod... this will be interesting. Considering this will make it a really unreliable exploit.

    Also still taking this with a grain of salt. C'mon @Game_Over_Tom show us something.

    actually, video proof is enough. The thing with costello is that TX could be lying, not costello.
    Scene isn't as toxic as you think. It is just cautious.

    Costello also said I was going to regret writing that post, yet here we are: a fabricated rumor made them move and we just got confirmation that it is indeed a modchip.
    I believe this experiment successfully highlighted how most people in this scene (probably in others as well) are far more eager and concerned with fighting each other than to actually work at their own pace on something to be proud of and that TX is just as vulnerable to these tactics as anyone else.

    That brings it to point two. Yes TX could be lying, its always a good idea to take things with a grain of salt. That being said however, TX's track record of real vs fake exploit/news tips very heavily in their favor thanks to them being in the scene since the xbox days...

    Love them or hate them, there is no denying this is excellent news. For TX people, it's confirmation of new entrypoints. For haters of TX, it's confirmation that there are ways to get things like Atmosphere running on patched units.

    Reading your post it can be clearly seen that you actually are part of your said " us vs them " mentality..
    And yes.. sx has things no other cfw has if you havent seen.. people got sx because:
    1 - xci / usb 2 - Emunand till recently 3 - Easy of use
    If this turns out to be real then you can add 4 - Works on all consoles

    1 & 2 are valid. 3 can also be applied to Atmosphere. (Because Kosmos makes installation and usage very easy). 4 we'll have to wait and see.

    Huh. Neat.

    Well, assuming its real (did a quick check, the guy that got the chance to use their chip is a MaxConsole user so they're probably not fabricated), that'll be interesting.

    Still wish their would be some more evidence (video evidence ideally but photographic evidence would be acceptable too) but then again, I wouldn't be surprised if TX just smelled the money after the aforementioned "we have Mariko hax" was inserted in their rumor mill and pulled up their glitching attack solution again.
