I was just wondering how its done like how do the files work and the system. Do they exploit certain files or what.
Hopefully when i learn enough code and stuff one day id be able to also be a part of the community that creates the homebrew softwares and the ones like SX OS

There's quite a lot of knowledge you need to build up before getting this question answered in a way that's going to make sense.

I recommend checking out Andrew “bunnie” Huang's book on how the Xbox was hacked. He walks you through it from beginning to end. You can find it here: https://bunniefoo.com/nostarch/HackingTheXbox_Free.pdf

I know you're asking about the switch specifically, but if you're interested in what goes into hacking a console in general, this is a good writeup to get you started.

Also is your goal to hack consoles or make homebrew applications because those are 2 different endeavors. Hacking requires knowledge of reverse engineering and locating bugs while homebrew development involves making your own program within the confines of particular system.
