    He didn't deliver anything other than news about the updates. Literally anyone can do that, he just happens to be the one who gets them second, another person posts them on his fourms first.
    Actually his actions have effected the scene and created a wave of Gateway users who believed him with every claim that he made. That's only one example of his lies effecting the scene in some manor. Right now his claims are effecting the community because people are worried about unchecked claims from a known liar. Demanding proof from a known liar shouldn't be considered "bullying" nor should it be this heated a subject. He proved himself to not be trusted and I have no reason not to question nor request proof.
    It's worth noting that he did lie about Rei-Six team (which there are only 2 members of, Crimson and myself) and Luma team being involved with an "update" for Stargate. Then when pressured lied saying Luma team was involved, then only came clean after I put pressure on him. This series of claims could have created unnecessary shit for devs if they were left unchecked. So something he did do could have had an effect on others if not checked.
    That's fine to think I am a bully and it's fine that you are willing to accept the claims of a known liar. Also yes, it's also fine to demand for a reputable source to backup the claims in public. Quite honestly if more people started questioning his actions before, he would have most likely started to put in an effort to change his actions to build up a better reputation. Instead people just allowed his actions be unquestioned and he's been allowed to make false claims without without consciences. If you don't like that I am questioning him, then that's fine. You act like this is the first time I've questioned his claims, it's not and it won't be the last either.

    Don’t really feel like updating my hacked switch and even though i kept it offline, it’s probably banned.

    Well the difference is that a bootrom exploit exists so it shouldn't be too difficult to get access to the new keys.

    Yeah, I bought a switch tablet only other day getting prepared for it. £130 in near mint condition off ebay (after some haggling via messaging).

    So it would appear firmware 6.0 has been uploaded to Nintendo's CDN meaning it will most likely be officially pushed out soon. If you have a working certificate and know how to use a CDN downloader, you just might be able to grab it yourself.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    It seems that masterkey 5 has been "leaked" so if you know where to look, you should be able to find it.
