    They were first to market with a cfw, ahead of everyone else. Now IF this news is true, they'll be first with a solution for newer patched units. That, my friend, is the very definition of competition.

    Trust me, I get you. I am a huge Nintendo Fan Boy and a member of the PC Master Race! Nothing but love for what Sony and Microsoft do, but I don't have enough time or income to support them all. 2020 is going to be an interesting year!

    SX OS wasn't the first CFW. Atmosphere was being used long before that.

    They sold something that they stole from someone else, that didn't develop a single thing about it. That is NOT competition. Also that is a very big IF, especially since there has been NO evidence of something like that even being in the works. Again, this is not a competition nor have they "won" anything

    Well, it's technically even funnier. SX OS 1.0 is just an Atmosphere with the serial numbers filed off and XCI loading added to it.

    I’m pretty sure old stock won’t work with any late model switch hacks if One does exist

    @guitarheroknight,
    Your comment, which i can't seem to quote for some reason, maybe because it's just two long quotes,does not address the fact that there has not been a single clear piece of factual evidence that an exploit exists or is being worked on. Ever heard about hype? That's all this is, people being hyped for something that may or may not exist. No evidence was presented, therefor you can't claim that the exploit exists nor that it's being worked on. And before you say" Well you can't prove otherwise either", burden of proof does not fall to me but to the ones making the claim, in this case TX themselves

    So, no real proof of this but having it in the front page is for sure increasing a lot of traffic and views for GBATemp. Hence why it's kept in the front page and not removed/tagged as rumor or something like that... cannot trust any news source nowadays.

    Updates are one thing, hacking an entire console revision is another.

    Publicity is publicity, yes, but credibility is another factor as well. If they announce an entire deal like this, then don't deliver (if it is indeed fake), they're going to have a very large and apparent stain on their reputation from the entire scene, sx fans and haters alike. That, no matter what, is a loss for them.

    Because it does come from a source that isn't a random kid saying "but what if 4k dolphin on switch gais". This is a storefront divulging "exclusive" information. You have a piece of information from a person claiming connections to the company itself. TX hasn't come out to deny it, and considering gary's rep with tx, if he wants to further blast that announcement out, then it's clear there's something to it.

    ...That happens with literally anything SX ever, though. Half the comments are always unfounded hate from other CFW fans, just like how Atmo updates get unfounded hate from the SX bandwagon. And again, as minimal of a source as it is, it still is a source claiming they spoke with TX, with the resident TX spokesperson appearing to back it up. Had I had any input on this, I woulda added a rumor tag, and changed the wording of the title, but I wouldn't have found it entirely unfit for the front page. I still think there's enough to be relevant to blip onto people's radars.

    I'm one of the people who writes GBAtemp's news lol. It's pushing down the topics of an overly slow week by 1 tile. I mean, I get it. It's a weird topic and the information behind it is sketchy. I'm not going all out defender for this post, but it's not like some atomic sin of mankind for it to be there.

    While I don't own a switch anymore, all I'm seeing is a bunch of people upset that they just didn't steal code and sell it off as their own work before SX did. Some people are acting like SX is going out and raping children, like god damn calm the fuck down.

    Tbh it's so funny to see the TX fanboys getting mad about the hate even before it came.
    Who cares about TX anyway, if they release the first hack for the patch consoles, who would blame them ? If this is real, it's still a great achievement, no matter who did it. There are only the little fanboys who are taunting each other, I don't think the teams gives any fucks about who did it first or not.
    Well, maybe Xecuter will check into opensource stuff but hey, it's opensource, as long as they don't break the licences, that's cool.
    But I don't get people getting mad over that. People getting mad over people who didn't started to taunt TX users. Atmos users getting mad over TX getting it working first, or whatever. I don't think SciresM gives a shit about anybody here "defending him against TX" on gbatemp, so people should stop that. It's just useless and dumb, given the fact that in the end, we will all benefit from it.

    Well, we will benefit, if it's real lol

    Should have clarified: They boasted about being able to hack unhackable Switches in a changelog.

    They already have one I'd say.

    Fair enough, I gues we'll see.

    Yeah, I think this would've sparked less uproar if it were made clear it's just a rumor.

    Never claimed it was, don't think it is. I'm just a little amused by it. :P

    Atmosphere, the CFW, was being used on the Switch by users before SX OS was out.
