    Latest News:
    • Someone was able to dump the Switch Kernel and they're now investigating how to hack the Switch further. Stay tuned!
    • Nintendo has finally disallowed older firmware Switches to go online... Update to 3.0.0 as long as you can.

    ------------

    To get rid of the update nag:
    • Set 173.255.238.217 as your primary DNS in the settings
    • Complete power off the console (hold power button > Power Options > Power Off)
    • Turn back on

    Proof of Concept Exploits

    These exploits are of no use for non-developer people and only show what will be possible soon!

    Current Userfriendly Exploits

    Exploits that everyone can easily set up and use.
    • None

    FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
    • Can we run Homebrew yet?
      No. It's far too early but the hacking community makes steady progress.
    • Should I stay on FW 1.0.0?
      Probably not. You'd have no way to run the exploit since there's no browser or anything else helpful.
    • Should I update beyond 2.0.0?
      No, stay on 2.0.0 for now since everything still works like online play and downloading games when using the above mentioned DNS.
      Yes, Nintendo has disallowed low-firmware Switches to go online. Update to 3.0.0 as long as you can.
    • What's with all these Emulator videos popping up online?
      All fake. These are simply videos played via the web browser with some of the above mentioned tools.

    Surprised to see that there is already a kind of an exploit for the Switch xD

    It's not really an exploit, many things can crash the Switch. As example I tried running some exploits from the Wii U on my Switch and all it did was to crash the console on most of them.

    Well, it's really easy to do a fake-thingy with a Proxy ;)

    Here's me playing around with it as example:

    It's not a fake thingy! Qwerty is very credible (released an iOS-jailbreak using the same webkit-vulnerability as the entry-point) and someone else already linked this poc of it.

    Also can you maybe add a link to this? It's essentially an easier way to go to any website (through it should not be used for something private because it's possible to redirect some traffic to bad websites, I don't but I could in theory).

    EDIT: Thanks!

    I was, but lately that guy proofed to be somewhat "less dickish" than he was back in the early days of Wii U/3DS exploits and well, I laid off the "hate boner" I had against him ;)

    Yeah it means nothing for the end-user at this point. So adding it to the list probably would just result in noobs asking for a tutorial.
