    He used the TX chip, he didn't hack it.

    We all want a free solution, nobody wants to pay for something if they can have it free, but it looks as though if you want to hack a patched unit you'll need to pay for it. At least for the foreseeable future anyway but nobody knows what's around the corner :unsure:

    We actually did break the modchip's DRM, which goes to a bunch of super paranoid lengths to prevent you from running your own code. They check multiple RSA signatures and clear all the keys -- including the ones we dumped -- to try to prevent other code from dumping them/getting access to them.

    I'm impressed, being completely serious, with how much effort they put into their DRM. They check everything three times to prevent glitching their payload, lol.

    You're correct though that keys were dumped by hacking gateway's modchip to get past its DRM and run our own code instead of gateway's boot.dat payload, though.

    Once our own code was running instead of gateways I used some old, old tricks to a) decrypt and dump gateway's encrypted payload and their internal keys, and b) get the Nintendo keys out of the security engine and onto our PCs.

    So he can already take thing out. Now we just need to find a better way to put thing in than a mod chip.

    I've been tempted to do that also. But, I personally just don't think it's worth it to buy another Switch just for a bit of a better battery life. The Switch's battery is fucking horse shit though. But, I'd prefer to wait for a completely upgraded Switch to blow money on.

    This is just my opinion though. :P

    Yep

    I assume so as there are two versions of the modchip

    Doing that though would probably paint a big target on the back of your head for Nintendo to fire at

    I'm probably going to do the same thing with my Switch that I did with my 3DS, and wait like 7 years before home-brewing it, so by than; running CFW would most likely be more stream-lined.

    Yeah I'd upgrade to a Switch Pro pretty much as soon as it was released. For a second unit OTOH I'm thinking like $75 or less tablet only, so it'll definitely be a while but I have no issue with waiting.

    Yeah, it's ridiculous how bad it is. I feel like some games you get maybe 2 hours of battery life.

    So are they lying when they claim it will work with other payloads including atmosphere or is their boot.dat going to act as a chainloader?
