    Since there is little to no public news related to running homebrew/cfw on patched switches i wanna setup a bounty to get patched switches exploited.


    So the offering is to the first dev/team that can successfully expoit an patched switch and run homebrew and/or run cfw on it i will reward them 50$



    the payment will be done via paypal, also any one that is willing to chip in be my guest

    should ask the mods about this because there were few bounties for apps/emulators

    50$? Wow, how nice

    (People actually pay thousands of dollars for exploit like the one you asking)

    I know your intentions are good, but you will get flamed for this bounty.

    There won't be any new public exploits until the new Switch models are released.

    All the needed exploits are already public they just need to be implemented

    A vulnerability with such a high severity may give you 20k even from Nintendo. You will probably get even more in other bounties targeting devices using the same SoC. Your $50 is joke.

    Setting up a bounty is a good idea (if the mods are ok with it)! Ignore the people that are trying to let you down: they are just frustrated folks with nothing better to do.
    That being said 50$ is a bit low, but if people want to help and pledge some money for the cause we might get somewhere!

    It starts at 50. If other people join, the value can only increase.
    Good effort by the OP.

    I already have exploit for new devices and I am willing to unpatch new devices.
    Unpatching takes time so send me all the devices that needs unpatching in order for me to fix them all in one go.
    Send all the new (unboxed) Switches to me and I will unpatch them and send them back.

    No charge, free service for GbaTemp users!

    I'm afraid Nintendo is willing to pay 100 times that amount, at the very least.

    People keep saying that but what's to stop someone taking the money and releasing it anyway?
    Genuine question.

    If you "sell" an exploit to a company, they make you sign an NDA before even considering giving you money. You could release it but you'd face legal trouble

    Posting my address will put all those Switches at risk.

    Unless theirs a bounty organized by a trusted person, it would just be best to donate to the devs when the exploit comes out. 50$ probably wont make anything go faster when their already doing the best they can and juggling this with their other parts of their lives.

    I think a bug bounty pool can be beneficial but you have to have someone higher up in the community that can be trusted to do it.

    sounds like a load of bull to me. as far as I know, there is no way to unpatch an ipatched switch, since its a hardware problem.
