  1. Hi again. It's been a while, hope you all didn't miss me too much Today i am coming at you with some relatively new news! Recently CTURT has released a new exploit for the PS2 called FreeDVDBoot. This allows you to load homebrew from an exploit in the PS2's DVD firmware. It is believed that this will work on any firmware PS2 DVD drive, although support is currently limited to 3 versions at the time of writing this. I believe the support will grow over time, but might not be as fast as scenes for newer consoles at this point in time! With this being said, the latest drive version has been exploited, so PS2's which previously could not be exploited with FreeMCBoot, now have FreeDVDBoot! Today, i will walk you through installing FreeMCBoot on any PS2, which has a supported drive firmware, and i will show you how to check what firmware you have and weather or not it is supported! I have attached a video below, and then a write up below that! Written TUT: Step 1: You will need to boot up your PS2 to find out what drive firmware you have. Do this by removing the disc from the PlayStation and powering it up. You will then go to the boot menu with the spinning balls. If you see this, press triangle for info, and you will see your drive firmware version. Note this down (Mine was 3.11) Step 2: Go to the git hub found here and then click on the pre-built releases folder to see if there is a pre-built release for your drive firmware. Step 3: If there is a pre-built release for your console drive firmware, then proceed to download it to your computer, and i will link the required files below. If your drive firmware is currently not supported, then you will need to wait a bit longer. Step 4: You will need a USB formatted to FAT32 and the following downloads - FreeMCBoot - IMGBurn Step 5: Install IMGBurn onto your pc Step 6: Extract the contents of the FreeMCBoot package to your usb, you should now have a "Languages" and "INSTALL" folder on your usb, along with the FMCBInstaller.elf Step 7: Use IMGBurn to burn the .iso file you downloaded earlier, for your drive version. You can do this by clicking the first option which is "Burn image to disc" (Make sure you click verify once you start burning) Step 8: While the disc is burning, make sure you PS2 has the language set to english in the settings, or this will not work. Step 9: When the disc has finished burning, eject it and put it into your ps2's disc drive, and insert the USB stick with the files you copied to it earlier. Step 10: boot the PS2 and you should see the screen flicker and then it will open ulaunch.elf. From here you should press circle to load the browser, then scroll down to the "MASS" folder, and click it. You should now see your USB contents. You will need to scroll down to the FMCBInstaller.elf and press the circle button on it to load it up. Step 11: Follow on screen prompts to have it install. I recommend using the multi option, but you can do as you wish. Once it is done, you can power down the PS2 and remove the disc. Step 12: Boot the PS2 back up with the memory card you installed FreeMCBoot onto. Step 13: Profit? Let me know how you go and if you need any help. As always, see you all next time, peace!
  2. Hi all! Welcome to another tutorial, this is quite similar to a previous one i have made which is installing SYS-Modules on your switch. This one here will go a bit more in depth on installing the switchback module to disable SuperNag, the nag which asked you to always update your switch to play games or open the internet browser. So without further ado, lets hop straight in! Written TUT: What you will need: - An exploitable Nintendo Switch running Atlas/Kosmos CFW - A computer or device which can access your switch's SD card, and which has a text editor - A good text editor (i HIGHLY recommend notepad++ as it works on many different platforms and it amazing... You can download it here - https://notepad-plus-plus.org/downloads/) - The SYS-Tweak SYSModule which can be downloaded with browserNX homebrew from their github - https://github.com/crc-32/BrowseNX/releases - A way to enter RCM Step 1: Make sure you meet the above requirements. Step 2: Power down your switch and remove the SD card Step 3: Place the SD card in the device you are using to complete this tutorial Step 4: You will need to copy the SYS-Module into the appropriate directory, Simply copy the whole "atmosphere" folder from the zip file, and paste it into the root of your SD card, make sure you also enter the "atmosphere" folder on the zip, followed by the "titles" folder, and then copy the folder with the random numbers, should be "00FF747765616BFF" as at the time of writing this, and paste this folder into your contents folder which is located in "/atmosphere/contents/" if the folder does not exist, create it step 4.5: Once copied, open the folder with the random numbers and leters (for both contents and titles) and make sure that that there is a folder in there and a file called "exefs.nsp" if the .nsp file is names something else, make sure you rename it to "exefs.nsp"! Step 5: Copy the name of the folder with the letters and numbers, keep this on your clip board we will need it shortly Step 6: Go back to the root of the SD card and navigate to the following directory - /switch/kosmostoolbox/ - In here, you will see a file "Config.json" you will need to edit this. If you are using Notepad++ just right click and open with Notepad++ Step 7: Copy the last entry in the document, and paste it below to duplicate it. Then add a commer to the end of the previous entry to signify that there is another entry after that one. It will be something like the below extract From this To this Step 8: Change the details to match those of the module you are installing. For example: - "name" should be how you want it to appear in the toolbox. - "tid" is the title ID i had you copy earlier from the folder with letters and numbers which we placed in (/atmosphere/titles/) and (/atmosphere/contents/) - If you do not know if the module required reboot, set that to true to be safe! Step 9: Save the edited file and safely eject the SD and place it back into the switch. Step 10: Boot into RCM and then into the atlas/Kosmos CFW Step 11: Open the Homebrew Browser and then open "Kosmos Toolbox" Step 12: Open "Background services" and then you should see your module there. If you cannot see your module, you may need to repeat the process again. Step 13: Profit? Hope it all worked out for you. If you have any issues, please drop me a comment down below! Goodluck everyone!
  3. Hello and welcome! Today I will be showing you all how to downgrade your Nintendo Switch Firmware on your exploitable Switch! Please see the video below for a visual instructional TUT, or see steps i have written out below the video! So to complete this tutorial you will need the following: - Switch Vulnerable to the tegra exploit - A way to enter RCM mode and launch hekate boot loader - You will need ChoiDujourNX which you can get here - https://switchtools.sshnuke.net/ - The desired firmware to downgrade to (you will need to locate this one on your own... Google is your best friend ) Step 1: Make sure you meet the above requirements. Step 2: Copy the ChoiDujourNX.nro into the following directory on your Switch SD card "/switch/ChoiDujourNX.nro" Step 3: Copy the firmware folder to the root of your usb. It should look something like this "/firmware 3.0.0" Step 4: Safely eject SD card, and insert into Switch. Step 5: Boot into hekate and then into your CFW. Step 6: Open the homebrew Menu, and launch ChoiDujourNX. Step 7: Open the folder with the firmware you copied to the SD card, in my case, it would be "firmware 3.0.0" Step 8: Press the select button down the bottom right. Step 9: wait for it to load, and select which version you want to use, i would suggest using (exfat) as it supports both fat32 and exfat, you can do as you wish! Step 10: After the checks are complete, you can proceed by pressing "Select firmware" again. Step 11: Wait for the firmware to be extracted and prepared, to the left you will see a menu, unless you are using a specific exploit where you do NOT want the switch to have auto RCM, or if your switch has been patched, i suggest keeping this selected at all times! This will prevent you from accidentally burning fuses and will just make your life easier when booting! Step 12: Confirm the target firmware is correct, and i would not select system initialize unless again, you need to for some special reason. Step 13: When it is all extracted, press "Start installation" and wait a few min for the process to complete. Step 14: When step 13 is complete, you can press "Reboot" and then followed by "Reboot now" to be rebooted back to the payload "hekate" Step 15: Boot into your cfw (i use SYSNAND, maybe you use EMUNAND? Just boot as you normally would) Step 16: Check firmware version in settings. Step 17: Profit? If you have any further questions or issues, please feel free to drop me a line and i'll be more than happy to guide you a bit further! Peace and catch you next time!

  5. Hello Switch Hackers/Modders! I bring you another Helpful Tutorial Today!!! I have not seen this posted anywhere else and it has been frustrating the hell out of me as it took me a while to find this info myself, so hopefully this makes it nice and easy for everyone! SYS-Modules are used to keep things running in the background of your Nintendo switch in the spare ram, these are used to perform some special tasks and functions which give a better user experience, such as allowing you to use controllers from other consoles, or FTP to your switch without opening any homebrew, or disabling the annoying SuperNag! The possibility are only limited by the devs ability/imagination, and of course the little free ram which is available to use for this function XD So lets get stuck into it! There is a video linked below for a visual explanation, or a written tutorial below that for those who prefer to read or cannot watch the video! Written TUT: What you will need: - An exploitable Nintendo Switch running Atlas/Kosmos CFW - A computer or device which can access your switch's SD card, and which has a text editor - A good text editor (i HIGHLY recommend notepad++ as it works on many different platforms and it amazing... You can download it here - https://notepad-plus-plus.org/downloads/) - The SYS-Module you want to install - A way to enter RCM Step 1: Make sure you meet the above requirements. Step 2: Power down your switch and remove the SD card Step 3: Place the SD card in the device you are using to complete this tutorial Step 4: You will need to copy the SYS-Module into the appropriate directory which is in either of the following (/atmosphere/titles/) and (/atmosphere/contents/) If the module is compiled, it will come in a folder with a string of numbers and letters, you must place the folder with the numbers/letters into the previously stated directories. Once copied, open the folder with the random numbers and leters (for both contents and titles) and make sure that that there is a folder in there and a file called "exefs.nsp" if the .nsp file is names something else, make sure you rename it to "exefs.nsp"! Step 5: Copy the name of the folder with the letters and numbers, keep this on your clip board we will need it shortly Step 6: Go back to the root of the SD card and navigate to the following directory - /switch/kosmostoolbox/ - In here, you will see a file "Config.json" you will need to edit this.

  6. Hi all! Welcome to another new TUT! It is important to backup your Nintendo Switch Nand every now and again, or when installing risky home-brew or upgrading or downgrading firmware and such. The reason why is because a backup of your Nand is like taking a snapshot of your switch's state, so if you brick it in the future, or happen to cop supernag (i have a tutorial on getting rid of this on the way by the way!) you can easily restore an old backup and be on your way! There is no hardware required apart from an SD card which is more than 32GB, so i recommend a 64GB sd card! If you are interested in learning how to do this, there is a video below for visual explanation and written TUT below that! Written TUT: Requirements: - 64GB SD card or larger - Switch which can run the tegra exploit and running a CFW (atlas kosmos is recommended as it is made by the same people who make the hekate payload) - A way to push the hekate payload to your switch Step 1: You must ensure you meet the requirements above Step 2: Reboot your switch into the RCM mode Step 3: Push the Hekate Payload Step 4a: If you have kosmos/atlas installed, you can navigate to tools and then backup using the touch screen Step 4b: If you do not have kosmos/atlas installed you will have to use the volume and power buttons to navigate to tools and then backup Step 5: Backup eMMC Boot0 and Boot1 Step 6: Backup eMMC RAW GPP Step 7: When this is complete, you can turn off the switch and eject your SD card. Step 8: Plug the SD card into the PC and you will notice a "Backup" folder on the root Step 9: Place this somewhere safe on your PC Step 10: Profit? That's it folks! Hope you all have fun and safe modding Let me know if you have any questions and i will be more than happy to help!
  7. Hi guys! I'm going to keep this tutorial short and sweet. please see the quick video i have below, for a visual tutorial, and the write up below that if you are unable to watch videos where you are at the time of reading this. Written TUT: Ok so trust me when i say this is going to be a walk in the park. All you need is the following: Nintendo Switch with CFW An SD Card in your switch (you will have this if you are on CFW....) An FTP client - i use Filezilla - https://filezilla-project.org/download.php?type=client The FTPD NRO file - https://github.com/mtheall/ftpd If you have Hekate and the latest version Kosmos Atlas installed, you can use sysFTPD which i show how to do in the video, and i will explain below, its so easy Step 1: Download the required files above and install filezilla if you have not yet. Step 2: Turn off Nintendo Switch and remove SD Card to insert into PC once switch has powered down. Step 3: Copy the FTPD.nro file you downloaded from the site, onto your sd card in the "Switch: Directory. Step 4: Safely eject SD card and place it back into the switch. Step 5: Boot into your CFW. Step 6: Open your homebrew menu, most do this by clicking on the album icon and you may or may not need to hold R while doing this. Step 7: Open the FTPD file and you will see your switch's IP listed above, if you do not see an IP address, you may need to connect your switch to your WIFI. (if you are connecting to wifi, i recommend using the 90DNS DNS's to block connections to official Nintendo servers which can cause you dramas ) Step 7b: If you need more info regarding 90DNS follow this link - https://gitlab.com/a/90dns The following is an extract regarding how to set up 90DNS, just skip if you don't want to use it or already have it set up Step 8: Open filezilla on your PC/Mac or whatever you are using, and enter the switch IP as the host address, leave user and pass blank, port is 5000, click enter and you should see the contents of your SD card listed! Step 9: Profit? Alternate method below if you would rather use inbuilt function with kosmos/atlas Step 1: Power on Nintendo switch running Kosmos/Atlas CFW Step 2: Open homebrew launcher and then open Kosmos Toolbox Step 3: Press on "Background services" and then Enable "sys-FTPD" or "sys-ftpd-light" Step 4: if you know your switch's IP, you can connect by opening Filezilla and entering the IP into hostname, and port as 5000 Step 4b: if you need to find your switch's IP, you can do this in the internet settings in your switch, it will need to be connected to the WIFI, follow my instructions above for setting up 90DNS if you have not connected yours to the WIFI. Step 5: Profit? I hope you all enjoyed this quick write up and i hope this worked for everyone. Let me know if you need any help, and i will be more than happy to assist y'all further! Peace out and see you all next time!

  10. Congrats on the release @TheDarkprogramer! Can't wait to see what comes next
  11. Shame they're putting DRM on this. Would be great for it to be released to everyone. Let's see if it makes online subscriptions more encouraging for the end user now. good luck big N!
  12. Yeah i didn't think so might need to go to a proper shrink. XD
