    First of all anyone can use this idea because i don't know how to program or anything i just like cfw and all of that. Second someone might have already come up with this idea i don't want to take credit for it. But if no one has thought of this idea before you don't have to but could I at least be in the credits file of the exploit?

    Anyways with all that out of the way my idea for an exploit is to create a photo album exploit. I know the switch can read photos from an sd card if you put them in the right place and since Nintendo probably does not think anyone would exploit the photo album it could be easily exploitable even on 6.0.0. Basically we would use a similar type of photo exploit that the psp used for it's photo exploit. The one where there was a bunch of photos then you launched one and it took you to the cfw installation menu for the psp. If you could create one similar that worked with the switch then you could exploit it pretty easily I think even on 6.0.0. I know most switches support RCM but for people who bought their switch recently (like me) RCM has most likely been patched so it would nice to have this exploit for people like me. Anyways someone please tell me if this is possible if it is I hope someone can make it happen.

    I gues on earth.
    I hihgly doubt that you can gain a trustzone access from the album. So probably not possible.

    Before suggesting a new exploit idea, I suggest you read up about how the Switch's security works.

    while we are on the subject of exploits my switch can access RCM mode but it and payloads can be injected but they cant be displayed. would a simple update be all that is needed to TegraRCMGui in order to inject payloads into newer switches that can still boot into RCM mode?

    You have ipatched unit then.
    So you can't use rcm exploits ever. You'll have to wait for other exploits.

    I normally don't like to snipe like this, but it's not a good idea to suggest exploits without having a basic understanding of how the system in question works.

    When I got my switch I’d load Hekate and then run a CFW and it would freeze or an error would pop. So I updated to 5.1 and they started to work with no error, unless you got a new patched switch

    Still worth the try but see if it’s a patched one.

    Your suggestion is like saying, 'I have an idea for curing cancer, has anyone tried a pill?'

    It's more that, even if there was an exploit in the album (which is unlikely, as Nintendo would have paid special attention to any way the console interfaces with the outside world) it wouldn't allow anything like the level of access fushofelX gives.
