    It is not Illegal in my Country as long you do the Copies for private use.
    if you sell/Upload or give it to a friend or for example if you Rent a Game and make a copy of that, yes that's Illegal!
    It's also legal to Modify your Console for Private use in my Country.
    I don't need to Pirate my Games since i am not really interested in the majority of Games on the Switch and i own a lot of PSP Games.

    Just please don't respond to this, you don't live in my Country nor you know our Laws...

    Agreed. Yes, a case can be made for protecting your IP. But that's civil court (money), not criminal court (jail time) I'd hope. I am worried this will make them embolden to go after those "grey areas" where they could interpret arbitrary code as illegal circumvention. I do not like this.

    Serves them right for what they did to the homebrew community. I doubt it's the end since they only got 2 people but we will see.

    your a funny one arent you, do you live in a fantasy world.

    so you claim to have legally made backups, not one single game you downloaded off the web.

    hmmm sure, ill leave you to play with the fairy's and elves.

    Yes the PSP Games on my Switch are Legal Backups. It's only GTA:VCS,LCS and THUG2 anyways.. so it's nothing you should risk a fine for.. unless you really wanna save five fucking bucks.

    While I think this was always the end for them, it's unfortunate to see this happen so soon. Hopefully someone will be able to clone their Core and Core Lite chips so there's still options for newer Switch owners. I don't agree with the piracy, but you should be able to do what you want with your own devices

    I feel that most of the "backup" people here (even if I give y'all the benefit of the doubt), are either not aware or intentionally overlooking the fact that SX OS has Horizon modules in it, as well as copyrighted gamecard headers to make their gamecard loader work.

    Pretty sure the other members will still work on this or may leak the Source Code & Chip
    Yea you're absolutely right i really love the Switch but the lack that you can't Backup your Savegames or add Custom Themes sucks.

    my entire point is that its alot harder less worth it to prosecute someone who has no money. You might be right, this might be the last stretch of game piracy, but lets hope we are both wrong.

    One question. What's with this hostility and negative attitude towards TX.

    Sure they are pirates but not the first people to invent piracy. Many others have existed before them and many more will succeed them.

    Back in the days of the 3DS era gateway was a renown and well known team of hackers. Yet no one spewed hate and toxic attitudes toward them.

    This question isn't directed at you specifically but to this community as a whole.

    TX and gateway are the same people :rofl2:

    From the Department of Justice website.

    From approximately June 2013 through August 2020, Team Xecuter used a variety of product names for its devices, such as the Gateway 3DS, the Stargate, the TrueBlue Mini, the Classic2Magic, and the SX line of devices that included the SX OS, the SX Pro, the SX Lite, and the SX Core
