Hi to everyone!

What is the current status of Hwfly modchips?
Do you think hwlfy current price will be cheaper in the future?

Could it be used to find another entry point for the patched switch?

Thanks in advance!

According to the people who know what they're talking about, it's highly unlikely that they'll find a useful soft entry point in the patched switch; and if the Hwfly is just a clone of SX, then it won't make it any easier to find one.

The price will only become more cheaper with more competition and manufacturers. Modchips are not used to find new vulnerabilities however.

Do you think at the end of life of Switch we'll have an exploit software?
If they have a Webkit exploit and a bug in a TSEC is it enought for homebrew?

We already have both of those and as you can see, its clearly not enough. A webkit exploit only allows for access to userland and TSEC is just a security bypass. Neither of those gives us enough access to run a CFW which requires kernel access. I don't know what the future will hold on but there is no guarantee that we will see anything at the end of the Switch's life.

What do you think has nintendo fixed in the past? There are no more trustzone bugs on 8.0.0+!
