The updates will also eventually be folded into checking.
This is trivial to fix, unlike the 3DS.
I'm trying to find a way to phrase this...
Now that the Switch hardware exploit is patched up in new units, and assuming it's too impossible (yeah right) or annoying to hack future units, one day the number of unexploitable units will far outnumber exploitable ones thanks to people buying the system now, for Pokemon and Smash, future hardware revisions, muggles not on forums like this, etc.
Does the homebrew scene (which seems to be flourishing right now) survive if it's just the people who have hacked gen 1 Switches right now building for just the people who have hacked Switches right now?
Will a community without the potential to grow will eventually become stagnant?
Hey all, I'm super late to the party on this. Can anyone link me to a guide on what's been going on with the Switch hacking scene? I don't know too much, but it sounds like it's a pretty mature scene already. What is the extent of the home-brew available for the Switch?
I love my switch and have accessories for it, so I might just pony up some money for a tablet only from eBay. Question: When people say the hacked Switch isn't online safe, do they mean it cannot connect to the internet at all to download firmware updates? Or go to the e-store? OR does it simply mean that I can't play games online but I can do other things while connected to the internet?
Hopefully in a few years the scene will have everything worked out for everybody. :)
The older hardware is hackable no matter what because it's a hardware issue. Sometimes you might have to wait for Homebrew to be updated to run on higher firmware, thats all.
I bought a Switch on amazon that was delivered 10 days ago. It came with 4.1 on it.
What are the odds that it is this revised switch?
It's always best to wait on this sort of stuff until the kinks are worked out, I know I wouldn't want to permantly brick my $300 dollar system.
so, iPatches can't be downloaded to the old switch? or they are hardware?
I wouldn’t mind dumping everything into a newer Switch then blow the vulnerable one wide open as a portable homebrew machine.
New Super Mario Bros. U come to fruition.
When reflecting on the release schedule in North America, New Super Mario Bros. was released on May 15th, 2006. This was then followed up by the launch of the DS Lite on June 11th. Despite the gap between release dates, Nintendo (as far as I am aware) exclusively marketed the game with the forthcoming system. Fast forward six years to August 19th, 2012, and we arrive at the simultaneous launch of New Super Mario Bros. 2 and the 3DS XL.
If history is to repeat itself, a true refresh of the Switch's hardware would be another driving force that could aid in selling 20 million units this fiscal year. Perhaps that is why Nintendo is being undeniably keen on hitting their projections?
great news, hopefully this stops switch piracy from becoming widespread. in my country it was already becoming big, many shops offering to do it and fill your systems with pirated games, this would stop that for newer switch owners
So basically a blip on the radar like the early PS4 cloning.
In fact, gaming shops that did do this have some what undermined themselves now since now they have potentially lost customers but cannot sell more of this either. Very short lived and stupid.
that's what happened with psp and xbox 360, getting non pirated physical copied was literally impossible, i would have hated if that happened to switch too.
So let me get this straight firmware updates won't do shit as this is a hardware issue. So all old Switches are vulnerable no matter what.
This is good news for me as when Nintendo launch a Switch Pro or whatever the next revision is I will transfer everything over. And instead of selling my old Switch for fuck all I will use it as my homebrew emulation system.
for people who still on low update, like 3.0
can you launch the GOLF game now?
because today is 7/11
just took delivery of my first Switch and want to play online and everything for now, assuming it's the unpatchable hardware and I can move off to a new Switch after a hardware revision and safely hack the old one for homebrew stuff.
This does mean I would be updating to the latest Switch firmware, but that shouldn't matter in the end, right?
We need to fire up a new '#___ Days since Switch has gone without being cracked...' - counter.
This is an excellent news. And indeed, those who want an emulator/Homebrew machine can always wait for a hardware revision and use their old switch just for that.
Interesting seeing what FW recent switches have been coming in with, I just ordered mine a few weeks ago from a third party ebay seller and it still had 3.x
So how rampant is online cheating and is Nintendo doing a good job banning people or is it haphazard like the 3DS? I don't really have interest in homebrew unless a Switch Pro type revision comes out and gives me a real reason to get another Switch, but I'd hate for online to get ruined by cheaters, I experience enough of that on PC...
Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.
Whatever happened to the person who posted porn pics on their profile picture and uploaded it SMO balloon mode? Did they ever get banned?
Good thing my direct deposit hits tomorrow.
But to answer your question I was replying to a post about announcing a NSMB game along side refreshed hardware.
http://www.ign.com/articles/2018/03/20/nintendo-switch-dataminers-discover-hardware-update-clues So this got a whole lot more interesting.
From what ive read there is unreleased exploits to see if they work on the new Mariko units (Which this is not) so even these Switches & future Mariko ones may be vulnerable.
Nintendo have an uphill battle, maybe they should have got the updated Tegra X2 instead.
