Ok so, can the exploit release be delayed?
The reason is the release of the Mario Kart 8 DLC and other stuff.

Because if Nintendo releases a System Update that also patches the exploit(s) before DLC comes out, then it's all over unless we get a firmware spoofer or something...

If anything, It will take them some time to make a patch for the system. Depending how large the security crack is, It unless they know about the exploit now and are working on a fix. But that is doubt full.

I know a lot of threads have been created recently, but hopefully this one will help declutter this thread of repetitive questions and be more focused on the exploits themselves and game mods instead of url blocking and updates.

Also, just trying to understand, is the "race attack" using time of check vs. time of use? Not necessarily in the same way as fof.

The wikipedia page gives an excellent example: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Time_of_check_to_time_of_use

Why don't you do some timing analysis on those function calls and write your own script to exploit that example?

I'll never understand the mindset of an online cheater..

Like the mindset of any bully they seek power and control over their victims. Pathetic really.

I got that, I guess I just never thought that Nintendo would be so quick to patch it (usually there's a slightly lengthy period of time in which they develop the next FW version, from what I've seen). I've been hoping it would be released BEFORE the next FW version, just for that reason, actually


Is there a new update because I am still on 5.3.2 and I can go on the Eshop just fine?

Also is it true that the web exploit releases tomorrow?

I don't believe so, but I'm sure that Hykem is doing everything he can to get it ready. Plus (This is just an assuption, NWPlayer123 could answer this better than me) I think that the recent direct may or may not effect the launch. I.E. Waiting to see if theres a new update and checking if said update patches the exploit or not.

I'm not sure I see the point in releasing the webkit exploit before the kernel exploit is finished. Unless I'm misinterpreting things, surely they should be released together rather than giving Nintendo the heads-up?

I want to register my mewtwo before they patch your exploit.

Edit: Or maybe after the mario kart dlc.

Yes, that's the plan.

As mentioned here, we're aiming for early-to-mid June, so no worries about missing out on DLC ;)

Ah that's good. Maybe hold off until Lucas is released? He's suppose to come out in June too :ha:

Hopefully emunand is on the to-do list

Definitely. Not sure what Hykem's plan is after we're finished with this first Webkit exploit (not sure if we'll release right away but at least it means everyone on the team can test), but it's definitely a priority.

Why do people keep thinking that Nintendo would release a SYSTEM update for game DLC? The Mario Kart 8 DLC never needed a system update.

    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white

    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky

    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares

    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range

    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

    Just get 5 years enjoyment out of it until Nintendy releases something and everyone forgets about switch games lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
