Nintendo Switch Catch Up Thread

Recommended Posts

For the past several months several groups and individuals have made public speakings, announcements on the next level of security cracked. With the vast amount of twitter accounts, public chat rooms and wiki/websites it may be hard to keep up with what's going down. Also what is most relevant to make a post about any way. I think one of those interesting interactive fancy HTML-5 graph things that look like stock-vector-vector-molecules-made-of-ciwould be the most beneficial to really deliver information from these several entities. But I don't know how to make graphs nor ever know what is called and found that image after 10 minutes searching for 'circle and line chart'


Somewhere to start could be about firmware version. The Switch has had quite a few FW version changes in it's short lifespan however each one is (sort of) unique in their each way. For the interest of those who want to get the most out of their Switch they want to know which firmware they should go with.


What Does Nintendo Switch Firmware Mean To You.

In other outlets herds of people want to know what FW they are recommended to stay so they can get the most out of what the community has to offer. I think there is some certain difficulty answering these questions from an outside perspective because what does anyone know.

First ktempkin posted this 




Afterwards team failoverfl0w posted this as a follow up 






I do not have a ton more to add, no mention of any kind of "release" or something like that. 




Oh but in other big news I seemingly forgot to mention that SciresM released hactool which 


quote from source


hactool is a tool to view information about, decrypt, and extract common file formats for the Nintendo Switch, especially Nintendo Content Archives.

It is heavily inspired by ctrtool.
