    Why would R4 come back for the Switch? Well come to think of it, it's probably just a clone of SXOS that will brick your Switch like their Gateway clones bricked many 3DS systems :P

    See me curious, in this case.
    This really came out of nowhere.

    What's truly bizarre is that it shows a 1.0 3ds home menu screen in the Quick Start PDF.
    (and lol Customer Firmware)

    Screenshot 2018-08-03 23.13.45.

    Overall it seems like they're using OSS homebrew software to power this thing. No surprise there.

    Anyway, competition is good. Glad this is happening.

    Not seeing any mention of a License activation. That would be a huge advantage over SX.
