    *1267mhz. And I know, binned CPU speed was also bumped upto 2091mhz, and ram was bumped upto 2133mhz
    But the 1785/921/1600 limitation still applies in Horizon to my knowledge.

    The correct question is "What is tiny soldering guy?"
    And the correct answer is: "A legend."

    What is that for a question? Users with unpatched units doesn't need a modchip like this because they can use fusée gelée (which is by the way futureproof) ;)

    I clearly do get it. If you think it's ok to rip off SX but not for SX to rip off you, then you lack objectivity. Coupled with gbatemp's echo chamber it will appear like people with objectivity don't get it.

    If only that were true most of the time. I wish more console hackers lacked any morals, then we'd have hacks a lot faster. During the Wii-U days, 3DS days, and before the Switch stuff came out, you'd have people with the hacks circle jerking for attention. We got super lucky to get the Switch hacks in the first place. A lot of hackers get mad if you pirate games with their hacks. Some 3DS CFW didn't even allow you to pirate games, and ragequitted when their CFW was made to allow piracy.

    It's because I think some of them want their name to show up for example jobs, as a CV. They don't want their name/nick to show up with piracy. But I'm just guessing here and actually don't know.

    There probably isn't one a common single reason that applies to everyone. Some might not want to get sued, some might have a moral objection to piracy & some might be thinking of their CV.

    People are asking about why we want an open source version, pretty much stolen from TX, and the reason is that so it's not locked to just TX. Which, if I recall correctly, TX's is locked to just their CFW, which is fine I guess it's their product, but me with many others want a different CFW. Now if the TX modchip allowed any CFW, and I didn't need to buy a license(for the software not the chip), I would be fine buying theirs.

    So it's not "just because"

    Also, if it's open source you'd be buying the parts to make it yourself prolly, not just buying it from someone else. :P

    Tho do what you want /shrug

    Well, then I'm not sure why you'd want a Nintendo console on your resume. Or any console for that matter. It will inevitably lead to piracy or any other unintended use. It'd make more sense to have some sort of cyber security patch on a resume than exploiting a hole.

    Does anyone know how much is this modchip going for? I plan on getting 2 one for the patched and 1 for the switch lite. I already know a guy who can do all the soldering

    True but that should be more to the fact there hasn't been a hacked mariko for horizons limits to be increased on

    you are STILL going to have to buy hardware either way so i do not see what the benefit is i think i rather go with TX who were the ones who discovered the new exploit

    Stealing from private groups, not open to make something futureproof and without limitations --> GOOD
    Stealing from open developpers, releasing their work as open-source to make the scene futureproof --> BAD
    This isn't that hard...

    More seriously, we don't care at all who started stealing from who. I just want to see both sides progress in a good direction for the switch's future.
    TX, progress with your chip, make it work, that's fine. Please, just do not abuse your price choice or lock the chip to your OS.
    Others, reverse-engineer this chip, if you want, just, release it as open-source and in a chip of quality.

    Dont matter to me who steals from who, we all benefiting from both sides. We just say is homebrew, when over 90% of the users here are probably here for piracy. So props to whomever created what, stole what, made it better, worst, or started a new chain of competition. At the end we all here for free games.

    I’ve just noticed, if you read the opening post below I’ve copy & pasted, it does say at the beginning “All Switch” even regular unpatched switch but then contradicts later by saying no unpatched units grab an sxpro ffs :wacko:

    Again this is for ALL Switch. Regular unpatched Switch, Patched, Mariko and Switch Lite. But obviously we are not interested in people with regular unpatched Switch (grab a SX Pro FFS!)

    It would make more sense to you, but other people don't think like you.
