Hey all, bit of a big announcement...I stayed up all night to do it, but I literally just got EL3 code execution on 2.x. Trustzonehax lives! :)
SciresM said:
Oh, @here relatedly, 2.x trustzone pwn works on 3.x without any changes required to it.
Coming from SciresM, the leader of the ReSwitched Hacking Team, it seems that on versions 1.x to 3.x will be compatible with TrustZoneHax.

What does this mean?

If you wondering what "TrustZoneHax" is, it's one of the last layers of security on the Switch. Once we have access to the TrustZone, we have full control of all the system's hardware. Users on versions 3.x and below will be able to enjoy TrustZoneHax once a CFW has been written for the Nintendo Switch.

How is this different from KernelHax?

While KernelHax does give us control over a lot of Switch Hardware, TrustZoneHax gives us more, including "access to the HW crypto engine, with its already set keyslots and whatnot." (stuckpixel)

When will this be released?

It will be released when a CFW is available with it.

wow this is cool.

so 2.x is similar to 1.x when it comes to the good stuff 'hax' is that not so ?

glad mine is still at 2.3
so just like 1.x /2.x users might get CFW.

neat.

One half of me: This is amazing. The man is brilliant and I applaude all his hard work.

Other half of me: Why the fuck did I use Pokken to update from 2.2.0.
Because Rohan was the big thing and I myself thought "why update? No dev have told me to do it yet plus there is no homebrew out". some think that.
