    When signing into a My Nintendo account for the first time, you select other accounts and go to Google. I was eventually able to find a direct link to Google.com which lead me to translate. Since the tiny browser blacklists any domain other than Google.com, I had to use translate to access any webpages. I've also been able to fully access Facebook and Twitter with their My Nintendo login options.

    This could be interesting!

    You sir are our hero. Tell @smealum about this, he could do some experimenting for entrypoints! (I don't have Twitter)

    This has been known, and a special DNS has been created to make it easier as well.

    We need something for a9lh though if this console does get hacked since Nintendo can update your system at any time. Or your going to have to leave your wifi off on the switch and not be able to play online.

    guys, i know you're excited but just because there's a browser doesn't mean it'll automatically be hacked

    Can they? I have my switch in front of my very eyes, and there is a "disable automatic software update" function on it.

    Does this only work once? Meaning if you want to do it again, you have to make another account?

    They already have ROP in the browser applet (at least).
