    The ReSwitched Hacking Team has done it again. motezazer, ktemkin and SciresM have achieved code execution on 4.1.0, the latest version at the time of writing this, via deja vu at TrustZone level. This means devices on 4.1.0 and below will be able to gain access to the whole system. SciresM strongly advises to not update in the future.

    After less than a year, the Switch hacking team has moved extremely fast and now have got full access on the latest version. The progress being made is incredible, and in comparison, the 3DS took around 2 years to get ARM9 access. The scene is looking very promising so far and we are very lucky to have such talented people working on the Switch.

    If you are on 4.x or below, you will be able to gain access to the whole system's hardware. Users on lower firmwares will get CFW first. If you're on 4.0.0/4.0.1, just update to 4.1.0.

    I'm assuming it's the same as on 2.x/3.x, since they're called the same thing (deja vu).

    I'm really curious how they did it. I remember SciresM saying the lack of memory controller access made it extremely difficult.

    Congrats either way.

    Good work. Expect 4.11 incoming otherwise this wouldn't have been released .

    I wonder if I should update really quickly so I can get access to the eshop, download the games I want then sit tight for the release since 4.x is cracked. There's no telling how long it could take for a 3.0.1 release, 4.x could be longer, but at least I'd have the games I wanted. lol

    They're amazing credit where credit is due. Good work :)

    TBF until one release though you won't see any software. It needs one release to start the Devs beavering away at the amazing software they craft

    You must be looking for people to jump down your throat. Stop being an ungrateful dip, it's unbecoming. Be happy they're making progress. No one thought 4.x was pwned completely, just goes to show you that they're working hard.

    Nice. Healthy competition is always good, seems like TX might have lit a fire under ReSwitched's asses a bit. :lol:
