Hello guys!..

My burning question is — what's the .NSP maximum priviledges on CFW-ed (with atmosphere) Switch?..

Can one, theoretically, make an .NSP (not a homebrew .nro, but .nsp) file, or modify an actual .nsp-gamedump like a timebomb behavior in Windows, that, for example, destroying boot0/1 partitions or messing with the system partition deffered?..

Or if I test some shaddy .nsp, and it's running OK, there's is absolutely zero harm in the future, and attacker may harm only on the first run of the nsp-dump (like "pokemon-brickdump" some time ago)?..

Thanks for your answer.

I seem to remember that atmosphere was update to protect boot0/1 from malicious nsps after pokemon brick case.

But not pretty sure.
