    Do you guys think the Switch will get Homebrew till end of this year?
    I mean it seems like the Homebrew Scene gets very much work done in no time!

    What are you thoughs?
    How many months till Homebrew Release?

    This year? Very, very unlikely.

    I'm betting mid/late 2018.

    Yes the hackers are better are each days and after each hack, but this year no, I think it's very possible in 2018

    Funny how you people saying no think you're right. You do not know when or if homebrew will happen. For all you know, it could happen today, tomorrow, next week, 4 years from now, or even 10 years from now. You do not know when, so stop saying not this year.

    Maybe an exploit that will allow unsigned code execution will exist by the end of the year, but I doubt it would be released by then. We're probably looking at sometime in the next two years.

    There will probably be a basis of it but I'm sure devs will hold onto it for a while

    Do you mean just unsigned code execution (basic Hello World stuff) or an actual homebrew loader with different homebrew available for it and a SDK?
    If it's the latter, that's going to take way more time. SDKs take a while to make considering hardware support needs to be implemented so you can actually use the controls, output graphics and sound, create sockets and so on, and it all has to work properly so a lot of testing is needed too. A basic Hello World just requires printing a line to the screen. And then people have to actually make homebrew with it, some quickly made homebrew will pop up within the first week or two after a SDK release probably but there won't really be a homebrew scene.

    I could imagine that it would be possible this year. Maybe even a game loader... But not for public.

    yes but it wont be shown off due to instability and not wanting to risk tons of users who dont read
    instructions and the off chance it will not only patch that exploit but bricking consoles also all future
    ones so it will stay out of the public eye until its ready so yes and no
