    Yes. I haven't tested anything that supposedly didn't work before though.

    i read through all hexkyz's posts in that thread. i'm not saying anything about his statement that those rumours that TX had the solution at that time were false. what i'm saying is that he was talking about the possible solution that TX had (either it's manifested already or not) which is to keep glitching out the boot until they can inject their own code, which is what these modchips are doing now. he said that they could already have a solution and the rumours would force them to provide their demo/screenshots whatever.

    Personally, I'm not holding my breath for an inferior mod chip or otherwise. 50 bucks isn't a lot of money to spend and expecting a free physical mod chip is not practical at all.

    It's funny how some hackers cry their hearts out because TX used some GPL and Nintendo code in their CFW, and now the same hackers and their fans are willing to tear apart TX's work and use their code in the same way they criticised.

    Also funny how some people accuse TX of being incompetent, sloppy coders, etc. yet noone else has been able to exploit Mariko and Lite like them. If they are incompetent hackers, what does that say of the rest?

    To me, these scene wars are just stupid. Ego wars fueled by pointless pride and entitlement only harm the collective.

    Its called hypocrisy, and yeah, theres a lot of drama queens around here.

    I dont understand the blindless hate towards the only group advancing the scene, but meh. At the end they will be using tx method one way or another, lol at the irony in all of this.

    It's not official. I wouldn't use it. Just be patient. What if things are not working correctly, as it was only meant for people testing the chips. Are you gonna come back and cry that your switch is bricked if you use it an it dies?

    apparently, the cheat ram editor bug (MAIN) has been fixed on sx os 3.0
    "Yes. Fixed..don't pay attention to leaks. Official version is better"

    This. Also the scene wars for releasing pirated games is pathetic. Been there and done that. Very childish shit happens in the piracy scene. Shit, look at what timepie did to Trashman. What a fag.

    To be fair to the guy I think we are all waiting for a better version of sxos because 2.9.5 beta on 10x firmware was a disaster so you cannot blame users for wanting to reach out for that desperate solution even if it was only meant to test the new modchip.

    Right, but if it has no added fixes because it's only purpose as of now was to add support for the chips, what exactly would you expect it to fix that was broken in previous versions? I was just stating that people should be wary of things that are leaked or don't complain if something breaks or doesn't work. It wasn't meant for the public yet and you see how quickly everyone just attacks TX when things don't work.

    Just another reason people should not be so quick to just update their FWs. 10.x added absolutely nothing that is worth while to update to and like all other FWs before it, games will not require the newer master key right away. I can't remember if 10.x even has a new one at this point. Only reason to update is to play online in which case you should have an emunand setup which can stay on the lower FW, thus using the older SX which seems to be more stable from what people have said, but also has it's own issues.

    It was just a general reply. As I said above, people are quick to shit on TX when official releases don't work correctly or break things and this wasn't meant to be released yet.

    If you aren't prepared to enforce the license terms then you may as well release it under something that has no license terms.

    The only effect it has at the moment is create drama.

    Do you understand yet?

    Here is a post from when the first announcement came out about the modchips, saying that it's false.

    https://gbatemp.net/threads/team-xe...est-switch-models.551125/page-17#post-8842348

    They were ltrolling TX and coincidentally TX announced something, so they assumed that TX were lying.

    But there was some backtracking when they figured out they'd called it wrong

    https://gbatemp.net/threads/more-in...ds-by-team-xecuter.551848/page-2#post-8853273

    Please explain what criminal law you think I've broken. Libel is a civil offense in the uk, they'd have to sue me.

    Nah, like I said, TX glitches the hash check at the begining of the boot sequence, and overwrites the key with their own encryption key. They used their own key to "protect and encrypt" the rest of the bootchain (except it actually wasn't encrypted.)

    Also, the mariko keys aren't leaked. Sci only posted the hash of them, so anyone else that would want the keys would need to get them on their own.

    Lets see if anything comes of this. Would be nice to not have to pay $50+ per modchip but either way any solution is better than nothing.

    That's a load. Why would you expect a group of people working on a non-profit project to stop working on it and instead spend resources and time to enter a potentially lengthy legal battle that will only cost money to simply silence this other, for-profit group? I wouldn't doubt that there is a certain pride in having their code ripped off--which is why one would talk about it. If you are worried about drama, then stop being so melodramatic about it.

    You have to admit that this reads like speculation that is still unverifiable. There is even leeway offered in it to allow for the possibility of TX to come out with a product, eventually. 8 months fits the timeline if you ask me. Anyway, it reads pretty peacefully and pales in comparison to your blatant shit talking, lol.

    Defamation Act 2013 and Malicious Communications Act 1988, which have both been modified/updated recently, only require a complaint and can result in prison/fines.

    I don't expect them to do anything, you're the one that thinks releasing under the GPL is a good idea. You either expect them to sue, or you don't understand the GPL.

    So you're all about the drama? As you seem more melodramatic than I.

    We've known that TX had this mod since before fusee gelee came out. They did the right thing and switched to avoid burning another exploit, now it's been burned they are releasing the new mod. They were wise to delay until Mariko was out and had been made to work, to avoid prematurely burning a new exploit.

    And you claim I'm melodramatic. https://www.cps.gov.uk/legal-guidan...es-involving-communications-sent-social-media

    But thank you for being concerned for my welfare.

    I'm going to ignore you now, because I'm concerned about yours.

    False. I've only stated a fact about the GPL and how TXOS has violated it.

    I'm not. That was something you suggested that was your concern.

    Speculation.

    I'm not. I only used this as an example of how claims made against someone doesn't mean that the action (or product) is illegal--as you said of TX's modchip. Clearly that went way above your head. Small minds.
