    If this hasn't been posted yet, here it is. (I'm too lazy to search). So would it be possible to access the kernel (FreeBSD) of it? I know I probably sound stupid...

    The Kernel is basically the 3DS one but re-written(from what I heard), it said its based on FreeBSD because of some small stuff on its kernel that comes from it(I think, if someone can clear things up, thanks :) )

    It's possible it's the network parts since FreeBSD is a beast on network.

    True, nmap on Switch gives me FreeBSD so the network parts must be from there...
