    It was not a "leak", just a case of bug collision. Please check the other tweets for more details.

    Yes the title might've been a bit misleading. How big of a part in the chain was this exploit?

    Enough for Hexkyz to say that they might even give a full release of deja vu, given the exploit bug they were using was found and disclosed by daeken to Nintendo:

    Well then these are bittersweet news, we might get an early release of it, but at the cost of it working eventually on mariko units...

    The bug itself was very useful, but it only affects a small portion of the exploit's entrypoint. Also, I've already replaced it with another one so the chain is still alive.
    The real issue is that the other bugs might start getting patched as Nintendo will probably research the affected system module on their own. If that happens and the exploit is rendered useless then it will be released for sure.
    I just wish it can survive a bit longer so we have an exploit ready for the Mariko.

    He does mention that "there are still plenty of bugs around", so perhaps there's still hope for an exploitable Mariko unit in the future, once it hits the shelves.
    Right now I think users with an exploitable Switch get the best out of everything, I just hope a coldboot solution can be found to effectively make all the dongles and AutoRCM go down the drain once and for all.

    Somewhere, over there!
    Daeken took advantage of the bounty, huh? I'm shocked... Not really.. Kinda sucks, actually. I don't know the story behind it, so I'll reserve personal judgment.

    I think it came down to the fact that daeken found it on his own terms, and disclosed it to Nintendo.
    Afaik nothing was stolen or anything.

    guys, sorry the question, but there are a lot of names, and since I have SXOs I've been following less the atmosphere/dejavum etc.
    but is dejavu the coldboot exploit?

    We'll have to hope that when Nintendo closes some doors they leave others open. From the 3DS scene its seems like they did that when trying to implement new safety checks.

    Good luck on the (entrypoint) journey!

    It is a shame, but nothing was stolen. Just sucks that we won't be using deja vu on mariko.

    iirc Deja-vu isn't coldboot BUT it's warmboot without the need for an external payload deployment, isn't it?

    An exploit doesn't exist until someone actually makes it, until then it's just a flaw/bug.

    So the dejavu/jamisvu exploits don't exist and they are just flaws/bugs?
