    Haven't checked the scene in awhile, can I run backups on my 3.0.0 switch?

    lol thanks guys, good idea to stay at 3.0.0 then? I can already run emulators on my wii u. So I might just leave the switch in the box for now.

    I dont really have a wiiu but i do have a 3ds and i can pretty much do what i want, like snes and stuff. So lets just wait patiently to the time we can do this hacking process in a clear way. Until then, i ll be sitting on the 4.1.0

    Any FW up to 4.1 is exploitable, stay as low as possible.

    Unfortunately 4.1 is just userland, so unless a new exploit is found we're out of luck for the foreseeable future.

    @OP, currently, it is not possible. Do not update at all if you are on 3.0.0 as it is compatible with SciresM's current kernel exploit (yet to be shown but he is reputable enough to believe it). I recommend reading up and joining ReSwitched's discord if you have not already.

    The toxicity on GBAtemp is kinda sad.

    To throw in some heat: I bought by 3ds back in the day to run 3ds backups on it. I bought the switch for the same reason. I can play emulators elsewhere, and they will most likely run better than on the switch.
    I don't need portable linux either, and even if I needed it, I'd run it on my phone rather than on the switch.

    The goal of hacking scenes is to be able to run backups in the end, whether you like it or not. If you just enjoy homebrew, that is great, but there is no need to attack those that are waiting for the possibility to play backups.

    It's like saying "We all like sports. I prefer football. Those of you that like basketball should s my d."

    @SirGray since many would attempt to ruin your question with retarded jokes, let me sum it up for you...

    There a 2 different teams working on hacking the Switch at the moment to enable modding (so no backup loading with them for the longer while).
    And then there's team Xecuter with 2 types of hardmods (solder and solderless) that will most surely enable backup loading.

    First two teams will likely release their software mods for free but limited to specific Switch software version.
    Hardmods are claimed to work on all softwares (and I believe future updates as well) but will cost you.

    Hope that's a good answer for your question.

    Can be patched via hardware revision. What's the other "team" TX is the only ones that will release something, if your referring to FOF, they won't release anything, even if it's a free solution. FOF is strictly against piracy, why would they release it for free to the masses?

    As I recall, Fail0verflow are indeed against piracy but pro modding and developing; warranting a release.
    Maybe I'm wrong, though, as I myself don't tend to trust my memory that often :toot:
