    Team Xecuter appears to be working on something in regards to the new fusee gelee patched Switch units. TX supposedly is having issues with getting their hands on the f-g patched revision, and they want users to contact them if they have a new HAC-S-JXE-C3 model Switch that the SX Pro/OS won't work on. They're willing to offer money, or trade a hackable Switch for one with a XAJ7004XXXXXX serial. The intended goal of this, as stated by them, is to discover what new Switch models exist now, as well as looking into a potential new exploit or workaround on these patched consoles.

    I really like their provocative approach to this. Interested in seeing what comes from it.

    A patched Switch for a hackable one with all shipping costs covered seems like a fine trade, I know at least a couple people on here have the patched version, so they should take advantage of this :)

    This all is total BS.

    First, they had been offered a patched console by a member of this forum and never replied.
    Second, they always rely on someone else's work if it comes to things like finding a new entry point and writing an exploit.

    Just no. TX has already written dozens of exploits in the past, just because they stole a bit of CFW code doesn't mean they're incapable of finding their own vulns & writing their own exploits.

    People forget that TX did independently discover the current exploit.

    They may have discovered FG independently, but they're not going to find some magic bullet to these patched units that somehow re-enables the specific thing stopped. This is really just theatrics.

    Like their rush to 'prove it still worked', its PR to keep people buying and not be worried about patched units as that looming reality of market phase-out because reality reality.

    Nintendo reacted quickly and TX really blew their load too quickly to spin up the marketing buzz, and this will bottom out their market prospects very quickly if users have to start jumping through used-market hoops to find a unit. Piracy losses its luster when it becomes inconvenient and as word of bans spreads as even more bad PR.

    ... That reminds me, they even had theatrical PR for the bans and trying to blame LFS. But there's evidence beyond doubt that SX is causing bans in one way or another.

    I don't recall reality being 'hating'. There's a thread on this very board about how they blamed LFS for the bans.

    Do you think anything of this isn't just theatrics?

    News of the patched units very much impacts their bottom line, that is why they rushed to prove it working before even understanding what they were doing.

    they just missed 1 number in the serial. it seems like an honest mistake. other than that there's 15 million switches if not more, already vulnerable out there, i dont think they have much to worry about.

    Thanks.
    Well, they did reply.
    I think it was on weekend so it took extra time for them to reply.
    Everyone needs day off, I understand :)

    Comput3rus3r is right, your posts are exhausting.

    Let go of your hate, it will only lead to needless suffering.

    Sounds like a great deal but as always I suspect this thread will generate alot of hate since this is TX and because haters will hate I guess

    Agreed, loving the SX and pro dongle and their updates, no regrets at all. No comment on the other devs as I have not tried their work, and haters will always hate, i don't give a shit, i'm enjoying my pro and that's all I care about. lol

    I have SX OS to, but really though, your comments will generate hate . If people want to use other ways, so be it. My interested is SX OS and Lakka ATM but I will test out the others when I feel like it.

    Let's all just get along for real. Such a good community here at GbaTemp
