    Oh yeah, I know she is. She touts that she doesn't like that TX stand for piracy and to profit off it, so to combat that she informs Nintendo about the Tegra exploit and then says she will release her own exploit for others to produce 'homebrew' for. A free version that will stop TX's profits, yet to do that, you would need a backup loader which is the very thing she says she's against. It's all a bit daft.

    I must be honest though, I was expecting something wholly different from Tempkin the way she's been hyping it up, not a clone. And whilst that might be a cheaper option for a lot of people, I dare say that most aren't going to have the knowledge to do that. When she originally spoke about hard mods, she had discussed how easy the Switch was to solder and how clean the points were and that they weren't that small so anyone with a basic level of soldering experience would be able to do it. So it seems she's chopping and changing her mind if the dongle is the hard mod.

    Anyway... it is what it is. TX or Tempkin.

    That's typically how PR people usually work. They fluff up their product/company to look better than the competition because that's their job. Or at least that's how I saw it since she had no proof to backup her claims and consistently insisted we believe her out of her good will. Regardless, thanks to a fourth party, it has helped clear the air and settle what the actual differences are between the competition. Also note that she consistently downplays the warmboots in favor of hardmods. SciresM is so far the only one to have shown off that type of exploitation meaning all she can be accredited for is the Tegra exploit so its no surprise she would favor her own exploit over others. And thus because of her actions (as well as several others), most of ReSwitched's name is not held in high regard. If not for SciresM (and TuxSH), the community would not have much hope for Atmosphere.

    If your system firmware is 2.3.0 and you didn't update to 2.3.0 with the method to prevent burning fuses, there won't be any extra fuses burnt. It only occurs when you have updated to a firmware, not matter which one, without burning fuses. LayeredFS recognizes this and doesn't burn fuses, but SX OS does burn fuses right now. They've already confirmed that they're working on it and will prevent burning fuses in future SX OS updates.

    I'm quite confused, does this mean that there is absolutely no reason for me to stay on 3.0.0?

    I've stayed on 3.0.0 so that I have coldboot and wouldn't require the jig. But does this video mean that other firmwares can have what 3.0.0 was meant to have?

    No, 3.0.0 will probably have coldboot and a software solution. It's not useless to stay on 3.0.0.

    To add onto what pLaYeR^^ said, the exploit that was shown is not going to be the same exploit that will be released for firmwares 3.0 and below. That is because the one shown in the video may not have been patched out in 5.X and thus they are holding out on its release until they can test it on 5.X. The softmod for 2.0-3.0 will most likely be released around the same time Atmosphere is completed meaning 3.0 users will likely see a softmod before users on 3.01 and above. So, just to reiterate, 3.0 is NOT useless.

    So, I have a 3.0.0 with latest updated v1.2 (non fuse burning allegedly) SX OS installed and I'm fed up with the splitting hassle of FAT32 so want to get exFAT set up. Is there any problems with doing the tutorial here https://gbatemp.net/threads/how-to-...tch-console-on-any-ofw-without-update.505182/ ?

    Or should I just upgrade to a different firmware entirely? If not using the method linked above, what firmware do I need to get to and how?

    Cheers

    being that exfat support is installed with some carts files, wouldn't it be possible to use sx os to install it from dumps?

    I'm on 2.0.0 and formatted my SD to exFAT and no issues running full sized games. Or was that SD update on 2.0?
