What can we do with the key to decrypt stage 2 of the bootloader?

    Team Xecuter released this key as a proof, for 1.0.0 - 2.3.0 firmware users?

    Can someone help me understand this better: Why can’t we run unsigned code if we can decrypt the bootloader?

    Do we need to decrypt stage 1 as well or what exactly is the problem?

    Buddy, you have made 3 threads within an hour, slow down a little.
    If you have a question then ask it in the noob paradise thread or whatever.

    You can use it to turn the Switch into a time machine, and go back to the glory days of GameCube modding! :)

    Sorry, i had it infront of the hypetrain trying to get it up to 88, but it fell down into the crater as the train pushed it over the bridge and broke into a million pieces of lego bricks, only got it up to 87.89 was not a enough hype power. :)

    Ok here is a true story, I once saw someone open 3 threads for no reason and then asked me to tell him a story.

    Ok stop it

    For “no reason” - excuse me? Those are question regarding the development of homebrew and they interest me quite a bit

    Is it wrong to ask?

    Im sorry if i seem salty i just found it funny how you transitioned so quick from asking the question and then asking about stories.
    If you are interested in the development of hombrew and hacking and have a lot of questions, I think the ReSwitched discord server would be a good place.

    guys why dont you chill a bit... on this forum when new members ask same question everyone get pissed because "oh ive seen this thread a thousand times" but when a not-so-new member asks a new question then its still not good... what the hell do you want...
    if you dont want to answer questions go back to facebook and twitter, and stop browsing forums...

    I found a Viper GC in my modding tool kit yesterday, hadn't cracked it open for a while D:

    I remember watching that team in the GC days freezing videos and switching out blanks for real games and booting and the debates that raged on of legitimacy, and then the day they booted a cracker :')

    Presumably they have the other 3 keys. 1.0-2.3, 3.0, 3.01/3.02 and 4.0+ by looking at the switchbru site above.

    If we could dual boot ignoring efuses then there's no reason we can't have an online and an offline dual nand setup.

    The only question no one is asking so far is can we boot BBB's original dumps, or will we need the PROPER releases. If we need the propers, will the just be booted off an SD card as NRO's and what about download only games like snipperclips? (I'm asking for a friend)

    And everybody complaining about the potential price of the mod(Not in the post but all the others), I don't know about the rest of you but I have 8 physical games worth a lot more than the cost of this will be to sell!

    It means that if I have a 2.3 fmw Switch, maybe I will not need the Xcuter mod chip or it does not change anything?

    It will probably either be booting the binaries in a similar way to Loadiine on Wii U or it will make use of signature check patches and require you to install titles grabbed from NUS or generated from an installed title. Given that their exploit seems to grant full kernel and bootloader (maybe even TrustZone?) access, the latter is easier to do and will probably be the route they will go.
    The dumps we have right now may be useless until a flashcart comes out (if a flashcart comes out) but without knowing more about the system I can't say if it would be possible to convert them to installable format.
