Today Nintendo of America tweeted news that their upcoming NX console is now officially called the Nintendo Switch which arrives in March 2017 with a preview trailer video below! :closedeyesmile:

To quote from the video's caption: Introducing Nintendo Switch! In addition to providing single and multiplayer thrills at home, the Nintendo Switch system also enables gamers to play the same title wherever, whenever and with whomever they choose.

The mobility of a handheld is now added to the power of a home gaming system to enable unprecedented new video game play styles.

And for Sony PlayStation fans, here's the PS Switch version: :closedeyetongue:

Switch Linux repo also:

Nintendo Switch Tegra X1 Boot ROM is also leaked now alongside the .IDC file:

Download: Tegra_X1_BootROM_Nintendo_T210.bin / / .IDC File

To quote from ub3r1337: Because glitching is hard; the Tegra X1 Boot ROM.

SHA256: 1c629af8a34adf21771630822a77ff78f57d0ba3e4953d96f0f68e5ab2b38dec

"Capture the flag. Offense."


It's of no use to any end-user, and all important teams have this file long time ago, and its missing all the 'ipatches' that are added onto it by Nvidia and Nintendo with each new firmware revision, but still packed away inside this 96kb file is whole bunch of bugs that most likely have all been corrected with the upcoming 'Mariko' T214 silicon die of the newer Tegra X1 which still at least 6 months away, but if you do want to comb thru it, attached is the matching IDC file from q3k released earlier on Twitter

Tegra X1 Bug (Nintendo Switch)
And because hacking is easy; the Tegra X1 Bug.

Tegra X1 RCM forgets to limit wLength field of 8 byte long Setup Packet in some USB control transfers. Standard Endpoint Request GET_STATUS (0x00) can be used to do arbitrary memcpy from malicious RCM command and smash the Boot ROM stack before signature checks and after Boot ROM sends UID. Need USB connection and way to enter RCM (Switch needs volume up press and JoyCon pin shorted).

Team Xecuter

Reminder: Real hackers hack in silence. You all suck.

"Game Over."

Some more Nintendo Switch scene updates: The.Snack.World.Trejarers.Gold.JPN.NSW-BigBlueBox

Û²Û    ÛÛ                                                            ÛÛ    Û²Û

ÛÛÛ   ÛÛ                        Release Notes:                         ÛÛ   ÛÛÛ

ÛÛÛ  ÛÛ                 Time for another Switch release                 ÛÛ  ÛÛÛ

ÛÛÛ ÛÛ                                                                  ÛÛ ÛÛÛ

ÛÛÛ ÛÛ      Wow its Game 100 release time, and boy did we pick one       ÛÛ ÛÛÛ

Û²Û ÛÛ         this XCI is different than all the others so far          ÛÛ Û²Û

Û²Û ÛÛ           how can that be you wonder, well let's begin            ÛÛ Û²Û

Û²Û ÛÛ            first we have a new Partition on the Cart             ÛÛ Û²Û

Û²Û ÛÛ              previously its was Update.Normal.Secure              ÛÛ Û²Û

ÛÛÛ ÛÛ              this one is Update.Logo.Normal.Secure               ÛÛ ÛÛÛ

ÛÛÛ ÛÛ         this new Partition Logo contains a Plaintext Logo         ÛÛ ÛÛÛ

ÛÛÛ ÛÛ    so guessing this means they want to go after people hosting    ÛÛ ÛÛÛ

ÛÛÛ ÛÛ                    and file a copyright claim                     ÛÛ ÛÛÛ

Û²Û ÛÛ        Secondly the Normal Partition is Completely Blank         ÛÛ Û²Û

Û²Û ÛÛ  still there but Blank, assuming this is the force the new ASIC   ÛÛ Û²Û

Û²Û ÛÛ                  so no displaying on <4.x Firms                   ÛÛ Û²Û

Û²Û ÛÛ                                                                  ÛÛ Û²Û

ÛÛÛ ÛÛ                so that sums up this strange XCI                  ÛÛ ÛÛÛ

ÛÛÛ ÛÛ            Switch tools will need to update to support            ÛÛ ÛÛÛ

ÛÛÛ ÛÛ                                                                  ÛÛ ÛÛÛ

ÛÛÛ ÛÛ                now onto the 100th release present                 ÛÛ ÛÛÛ

Û²Û ÛÛ    we are still astounded we are the only Scene group dumping     ÛÛ Û²Û

Û²Û ÛÛ          though I guess it made this release come faster          ÛÛ Û²Û

Û²Û ÛÛ              and it's not the last boring master Key              ÛÛ Û²Û

Û²Û ÛÛ                          so enjoy these                           ÛÛ Û²Û

ÛÛÛ ÛÛ                                                                   ÛÛ ÛÛÛ

Also from GaryOPA on, to quote:

Going to be similar setup to the existing 3DS and WiiU 'titlekeys' websites, used by programs like wii-usb helper and freeshop, its a little harder on the Switch, and we still need a fully patched CFW, but when it comes, the 'tickets'/'titlekeys' will be available, for now before that it will help to unpack game updates, dlc for modding the textures, sounds, and updating the games offline.
