    If a V3 comes out... so what, that would still make about 60 MILLION (or more) units hackable!

    "wait till EOL and rake a shit ton of money" ??? So wait until the system is dead has no more new games for it and THEN release the modchips?? because we all know how much people LOVE buying EOL outdated tech!
    When has that EVER happened? .. My god , that is the dumbest nonsense statement so far made on this thread! They did it NOW because switch is HOT now!

    As for your support to SXOS -- who had these keys and could have shared them 8 months ago and didn't strictly for profit .... but had they, mariko's would have probably been hacked by now , and if they weren't think far we would be. And keep in mind we STILL don't have public chips available. A presale is not an availability! I'm just shocked they didn't find another brick bomb in this... or at least not yet.

    If there was software to hack mariko units why would it not have been released at this point? Now seems like the perfect time to release a hack that doesn't require hardware. Even the Atmo devs were saying it wasn't possible at all until the SX testers stated getting the hardware.

    Why are you using a leaked dat file that clearly wasn't done being tested to the extent that they felt it should be made public? There is a free CFW called Atmosphere if you haven't heard of it.....

    My statements are very valid and far from dumb. If I was SXOS I already hold the market and I'm already sitting something that nobody else can do doesn't make sense to release a modchip now and then V3 comes out just to send a revised modchip in the following years. EOL is better because not only you can mod all units guess what all the $$$ is going to come to you with no problems. More people buy a vita now since it's dead than they did when it was alive because of the mods. Nintendo isn't going to be on your ass for a EOL system vs a system that they just brought out years ago because Nintendo is going to be focused on the next best thing.

    I'm a pirate and I understand the logic maybe you dont but I do. You seriously think Nintendo is going to sit down and keep on producing hackable units for modchips no they are going to pushout a V3... This going to cause lots of confusion because lets just say they sneaked a V3 without telling anyone and you pop in that modchip just to discover you fried your system not only you are out of a switch you also are out a modchip too. I said it before they relased the modchip they should sit on it and wait... How do you think Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos get rich by sharing everything they know for free of course not.

    A little birdie *tweet* *tweet* told me that we might be seeing an official release of this some time today. I can't go into further details though.

    SciresM is trolling them right now calling them gateway.

    But for previous trolling, you'll have to dig through the threads. There is so much churn because of the atmosphere trolls always posting shit in them.

    After the mod chip was announced there was a confirmation that they've just been shitting on TX because they wanted the exploit.

    I never did get proof of the claim that SciresM was a lawyer either.

    Well, one method breaks GPL terms and the other doesn't. How one feels about that isn't in my control.

    Thanks for trolling I guess.

    I thought it was you.

    Do you always get upset when people you haven't met break contract terms?

    What TX ships is illegal, at that point there is actually no point in them even considering that they might face a civil case.

    It's like getting annoyed that armed bank robbers have a bald tire.

    You aren't going to get a mod chip without buying TX. Mark my words. Anyone holding out, good luck but everyone else will have a genuine TX chip soldered in running SX OS in the meantime.

    I'm not upset at all. I'm just explaining why re-switched's position makes total sense--the bank robbers used their guns. Lol. Be more sincere in your analogies.

    I don't know if what TX ships is illegal. I asked for references and not hearsay, but you gave more hearsay instead. Oh well.

    Exactly. Even sciresm said there won’t be another version out this year. Sx modchip will be the only one.

    In that case you will also know and be aware that this modchip is easily stopped by a simple firmware update

    Care to explain how ?

    It's already known exactly what the modchip does and how it works. Not very complicated to reproduce.

    That's not true. The chip literally overwrites the boot0 partition with a glitch timing attack. So once it's used it's done. (There is no anti glitching at the start of boot.) A new revision is needed to fix this. As mentioned by heckyz, it's a bootloader glitch, so not much can be done.

    No new features at all, it just adds support for the Mariko chip (sadly.) I know they've been teasing us with new features for a long time now.

    To quote:
    Definetly not what anyone really wanted.

    It is beta so unless they are going to sneak in some last minute features.

    I may be dumb, but does this mean that the chip can be pulled out after it does its work ??

    My understanding is you still you need the chip but I could be wrong
