    It's not "abuse", technically, it's just how the copyright system works

    I mean you're not wrong. People keep saying "Ohh i just use cfw for this random thing but i totally not pirate games" but we all know they have a couple of pirate games in the system cuz "I'm just trying up the game to see if i like it so i can officially buy it"

    So yeah people in here can say whatever they want to believe but deep down we all know they do it for the piracy.

    Yeah but when something happens that I don't like it's abuse
    Hell, when people say "I just wanted emulators" that's piracy too, most of yall aren't dumping old cartridges, get real. At least own up to the fact that ya wanna be a little piratin' bitch, no one here's gonna judge you, it's GBAtemp for heck's sake.

    Yeah that was going to be my response to the other comment about 95% using homebrew for piracy, the other 5% usually argues they use cfw for emulators but somehow have every game ever released dumped and ready to go even unreleased ones.

    Did people forget the ambitious projects like L4T Ubuntu and Android LineageOS for the Switch? I can now play Magic the Gathering Arena on Switch. I can also pirate Smash Bros for local play.

    Also, you can still buy RCM Loaders from Amazon. This lawsuit defaulted against one guy on a brand we don't even know about.

    Fake news.

    As someone who loves to hack out his consoles and is personally annoyed by moves like this. I can't deny that I understand the merit for the move. Sucks, but I get it.

    Cut off the head, three more will rise. Nintendo is fighting a losing battle here. What's next, banning trinkets? banning any and all FPGAs? Banning any and all micro controllers and Arduino boards? This shit is getting ridiculous, and Nintendo is over-reaching.

    The RCM Loader was never the problem. It is a very essential device to have if you have a modded switch. My personal take is Nintendo should let it go why focus on a small minority of people who are not even going to buy games in the first place if you are making record breaking console sales and your game sales are doing good.

    But then again the lawyer fees are a tax write off so Nintendo has nothing to lose really

    I love RCM Loader I had bought 2 recently life is so much easier with it.

    I just use a cable and that Windows RCM program; works very reliably, and portability's not a factor for many reasons.
