    SX OS has been out for a few hours yet several layers of crypto are already defeated, using redundant crypto such as AES 128....

    Nwert has released a python script to decrypt and extract the contents of the boot.dat file, revealing 4 new payloads:

    data_80000000.bin, fb_F0000000.bin, arm64_80FFFFE00.bin and stage2_40020000.bin

    Source: https://gist.github.com/nwert/9430a454c64248dd1186868c00b682c6

    boot.dat keys: https://twitter.com/hexkyz/status/1008802666846121984

    There is also more private and public development going on for the lower levels, it seems SX OS is getting very close to being cracked.

    Warning: There could be anti piracy measures, such as what Gateway had on 3DS that would brick your system on conterfeit cards, so wait for trusted sources to report back and do not run random payloads claiming to be "SX OS cracked".

    EDIT: Original OP claimed that there where "several hints to TX and Gateway being affiliated" this has been removed due to it being speculation rather than informative.

    There are no 'hints in the code' as to TX being behind Gateway. It is known who is behind Gateway. The people have nothing to do with TX. Stop spreading nonsense.

    For bricking - this time even if brick code IS put in, they can't actually screw people this time, the exploit they use basically allows you to do a full recover too.

    Everyone who pays for piracy deserves to get screwed over. This is coming from someone who bought Gateway.

    I also bought GateWay and even SX Pro....i'm just pissed that people bought the cheaper license only code are getting to play backups before people that bought the more expensive option.

    Not entirely. AFAIK they could blow fuses, causing weird frankenstein consoles.

    Actually they could implement a Auto RCM brick where a user couldn't boot the console without a valid OS.

    We do not know, but the GB rom could be a hint. Regardless we don't know if there is any brick code yet, so best to be safe.

    The Gameboy homebrew is a long time scene thing. It's a reference, it's not a hint....

    There are plenty of ways to brick the system irreversibly from RCM. They only need to pick one. Just use some incorrect voltages in a few places and you are bound to ruin that users day

    Not wrong... at least, a full brick in the sense of completely broken isn't possible - but, yeah don't run anything cracked until someone smarter talks. Hehe.

    People who bought sx os or pro will not care
    if its cracked also as said before these devs dont release piracy stuff so if release then they do condone piracy.

    This is really, really, REALLY, misleading.

    I agree, dont run any payloads and yes, its best to be safe, but thats one thing. Claiming that "there are several hints" for TX guys to be the same as Gateway is just not true (at least from what we know now).

    Again, it's super easy to permabrick a system via frying electronics with incorrect voltages and other shenanigans. Bootrom exploits are brick resistant, but not brick proof. Even the 3ds with b9s has ways to brick beyond recovery.

    If not crack it, at least the code might be useful to build a backup loader, which is essentially TX's golden egg

    It actually isn't - garyopa essentially made a ton of fucking cash from the Gateway, this is his work from any way you look at it.

    GaryOPA is a long time warez scene figure. He is not involved with any specific group of team, he takes all comers. Stop saying stupid shit.
