The people that are able to figure out entrypoints are the ones that will come up with new hacks.
The people that post entry points, and want other people to do the work, will be ones that probably have nfi what they are talking about.
Overall I think it would be a pretty useless thread.
If you want a hackable switch, buy an older unit or buy a mod chip.

Having such a thread here is asking for trouble.
It'll end in a guaranteed shitfest of noobs posting the maddest ideas and codemonkeys bickering/trolling.

There has been countless threads of people suggesting an idea for a exploit and all of them where met with negativity and flaming.

No, we don't need a exploit suggestion thread.

At one point in time it might have made some sense to at least collate data -- if we were still at a point where simple buffer overflows worked then having people note which games allowed you to store your own name might be something to note and be tested later.

However not every crash is an exploit vector (few are really, at best you have potentially found something that a speedrunner might do something with), buffer overflows might still be used but modern security measures mean they are generally of minimal use (it is almost like the device makers are learning, took them long enough but hey), and anything that notes the option to use user data/receive notable external data tends to have it broadcast as a feature.

To that end I would say anybody capable of doing anything that wants help will ask, and anybody that does not know what a hypervisor is would be exceedingly unlikely to have any kind of useful input off their own back.
