    Yeah, right. You know Switch has a partially-implemented browser for logging into WiFi networks in places like airports and such, right? And it's possible to use a DNS trick to make the Switch load any site you want. This can literally just be a HTML page, something basic like:
    Code:
    <html><body>
    <p>by some random asshole for iOS only<br>may take forever to do</p>
    <h1>done</h1>
    </body></html>[code]
    
    You can even see the Switche's browser running from the button prompts on the bottom.

    Yep, The Pegasus Webkit bug iirc. To anyone thinking it's fake because it's iOS, it's real and originally an iOS exploit because iOS also used Webkit. The guy just removed parts that were iOS specific and it worked (lol). [​IMG]

    But again, we are not shown anything running, it just says "done", nothing else.

    Looks pretty real to me. Pretty nifty.

    It's called a proof of concept.

    Alright, since you seem so sure: what is he talking to from his shell also pictured? Just curious.

    If there actually is anything, I'm hoping they at least hold on to it until the console has more features and isn't exclusively sold by scalpers.

    Just Webkit exploit, not a kernel exploit so he can do pretty much nothing with that yet

    It's a webkit exploit that has been previously discovered. There's nothing really to hide.

    It's interesting to make a note of though. This gives security enthusiasts more opportunities to get a feel for how Nintendo's latest platform 'thinks/works'.

    Actually even if we are not there yet i think kernel exploit will be a thing in the following month and piracy by the end of the year
    i'm neutral towards piracy but i think it is quite realist to say that it will be there by the end of the year ^^

    Meh. An image showing "done" proves nothing. Not saying it's fake.. But it's not exactly showing much.

    It's qwerty. He knows his stuff and already released a webkit-based-jailbreak for iOS (with the same exploit).

    I'm very very skeptical.
