    Team-Xecuter revealed in a teaser a method to bypass all Switch security in a manner that they claim will never be patched by Nintendo and is compatible with every firmware available!

    In the video, they show a custom boot image and have publicly posted the Stage2 Bootloader key (package 1.1) which has been confirmed to be legit as proof of their pwnage over the device.



    This is expected to be a DRM/paid "device", speculated to be a tx1 glitch style modchip that will enable CFW and full access to the system, which unfortunately(?) includes piracy.

    A T-X forum admin expects release around Spring of 2018

    That was quick.

    Although I could be the sceptical one and just say this could be a video playing on the console.

    That's true, but Xecuter has a very reliable history and product line, so it wouldn't make much sense for them to try and fake it.

    Seems skeptical but the team itself has proven themselves in the past. Either way, it's quite an interesting time for the Switch homebrew scene.

    *NEW* Nintendo Switch XL incoming with marginally better hardware to hide the fact it's just an anti-piracy revision.

    I hope it'll be an option not to replace the Nintendo logo with this abomination.
    Why would you watermark hax anyway?

    If true all FW are powned then Ninty will have to revise the hardware like Sony did. Only time will tell.

    It’s not possible to “pwn” a device forever...
    In the worst case there will be new revision of the console that will have a different bootloader and the modchip won’t work on those models
