There’s been a continuous stream of announces for exploits and hacks on the Nintendo Switch over the past few days. SciresM announced a 4.1.0 Trustzone exploit, KTemkin has a coldboot exploit, and Fail0verflow are teasing their Linux port on the Switch even more this week.
In a video posted on Twitter a few hours ago (see video below), the team demonstrated their Linux port on the Switch, now with fully functional 3D drivers and touch panel.
The video shows the Nintendo Switch running a web browser within Linux, as well as multi-touch gesture support to zoom in and out. Later on, the video shows a simple 3D application to demonstrate 3D drivers support.
Also, in a taunt that reminds me of the good old days of the hacking scene, Fail0verflow used their demo video to tweet some congratulations to KTemkin and Team reswitched for their coldboot exploit. Definitely true recognition of the work of other hackers, but also a pretty direct way to say “we’re ahead of you”. 🙂
