    Rei is just trolling, when hype is like that, you can say everything, some people will instantly trust your bullshit.

    I wonder if there are also Chinese hackers cracking or making a backup loader for the Switch.

    No, CFW can be real, this is a good member from here and he/she have done several good project for the scene.
    But he/she surely not releasing any crack of SX OS.

    Here's the progress. Doesn't look good.

    PRAGMA: "Well no its not an encryption/decryption issue, but it doesnt freeze so it has to be doing more hash checks on data, stage 2 or the boot.dat, or on the public key itself @dave Devil's Thing is, that would still just result in exact same data as we have it doing now, there wouldnt be any magic being done. It would actually be faster to just do what were doing now, because we would still need the data bin to get its new hash on edit for stage 2's sha Anway apparently theres a bunch of CTR happening behind the scenes to decrypt specific parts of boot.dat it doesnt seem to decrypt the entire thing and read through it waits for registers to give it the CTR or some shit which isnt exactly helping us(edited)"

    It's probably going to get hacked, it's only the arrogance of the people who said it would get cracked on day 1 that is a problem round here.

    The Xecutor's smart, they put decoys in there. They knew people are going to hack it so they turned the boot.dat into a puzzle game.

    On the pretense of the last few stuff he was working on like boginstaller and memeinstaller i would have thought people would understand he seeks attention

    the amount of work put in to cracking it, could have been put in to a backup loader instead, if they actually want to kill them.

    Why work on a backup loader when devs can crack tx and get a new mod launcher with backup loader implemented ?..

    For the amount of work put in to cracking SX OS, the solution would be not free :rofl:.
    Oh, the irony.

    This !

    I would imagine for a fair few it's not about getting a backup loader for free but the enjoyment out of figuring it all out, a good excersise for them.

    good luck cracking it then, and not playing cart 2 games, while the cracking will help in securing the future updates

    If they create a sort of keygen, TX can't do anything. if TX change something, existing keys will no longer works.

    i dont think they will, xecuter knew they will leave the source to the public to sniff around and decompile.
    they wouldnt do that if they werent sure it wont be cracked.
    or there is some sort of booby trap that we will hear about in the comming days.

    i honesty think they will go 3ds gateway or even worse. and if they did, no one to blame honestly

    and if they did i honestly dont think they will release anything.

    No way they make a keygen. As with most keys for a product that connects to the internet, they will have a database of activated keys. Even if they did happen to create a keygen that exactly matches TX, they would have to generate one that has been purchased/sent out... and not yet redeemed.

    EDIT: For example, there were a handful of devs that did the same thing with WoW gametime cards. This required analysis of as many keys as possible (think hundreds of thousands) to make anything even close. I think the highest the generated accuracy was up to 60 or 70%? Blizzard later implemented the system of only activating keys when they are purchased at the register and the success rate became next to nothing.

    from what I read creating a keygen is impossible. you would have to know the crypto keys (server sided). and cracking those is more than unlikely.
    so what they are doing right now is swapping the TX keys with their own key and making the sign process valid for their key pair. this way it is still valid, but unfortunately TX is not that dumb. they have checks for that somewhere that need to be altered as well. please correct me if I'm wrong.
