    So, It looks like Executer has a method to hack these new switches. this made me wonder how they are doing it if the iptables are patched. I know you cannot trigger RCM mode with a paperclip or jig anymore.
    Has anyone tried to purposly corrupt the bootloader of these new iptables patched switched? will that force boot0 to fail and force the switch into autorcm mode?

    you will always be able to boot rcm mode on ANY switch,even on the patched ones. What you can't do on the patched ones is inject payloads(the cfw)
    EDIT: forgot to say,it's "ipatched" not "iptable"

    RCM is not being patched out in these Switch units as that is how people are able to test whether the console is patched or not. RCM is a feature of the chip the Switch uses and will not reasonably be removed unless Nvidia feels like it serves no purpose.

    Payloads injected via the current exploit will not work due a shift in the bootrom's code but it only patches the current exploit meaning other exploits are possible, whether they are warmboot or coldboot.

    EDIT: Nintendo ninjas got nothing on jimmyj

    They explain this in detail on the front page of their site. No idea why you felt the need to create a thread about it.

    "Those who are paying attention probably wonder how we know the exact details of this IPATCH entry change, since we can't read out the fuses without our precious USB RCM exploit, right? It is a classic chicken and egg problem.

    The answer is obvious: There is more than one coldboot bootrom exploit, and it is not just the warmboot one.

    So don't fear: we will deliver a solution for these new "unhackable" switches in due time!

    Thank you for attention."
