    Thank you wololo for the news! So glad that we have you.

    No need to link anything here! We use this site just for VERIFIED RELIABLE news! No need to risk the shutdown of this website!

    Keep up the good work!

    I still can’t understand why would that leak “force/precipitate” the release of already announced CFWs. Doing such thing would, without any doubt, result on uncomplete and buggy CFWs, and even more, that would mean that the possibility of causing major issues with the system would increase exponentialy, and that, is something not desirable in any way.

    As already stated, that leak is useless for the “common people”, and it might help researching for even more ways to temper the Switch. Being the first to release a CFW doesn’t make it the best by default. Ask about early CFWs for the 3DS and you’ll understand my point..

    How ironic, the files are .IDC lmao
    I really hate Nintendo’s direction they’ve chosen to take.

      This is not a Nintendo specific file format.

      What exactly did they do, lol? Nothing has really changed with Nintendo since the DS (the Nintendo I got to experience personally) – and of course they wouldn’t want any of their systems to be vulnerable.

      • Dmaskell92

        I wasn’t suggesting Nintendo created the .IDC format. I was referring to how I don’t care about the switch or its exploits, but I still read every Wololo article.

        Also by direction I mean wanting too much money for cheap gimmicks, and pushing lame games. Have you seen that ball counting game?

        • M o r o n

          Yes I saw it. Like I saw Zelda, Splatoon, Mario Odissey and I will see Metroid. Go f**k yourself idiot.

        • Dmaskell92 who is signed up on every ps hacking site on this earth and who write articles on sony console speaks of a one year old launch collection of mini games and pretends to forget other major games launched and “hurr durr muh powa grafix” to push his agenda. HOW SURPRISE!

      Many hacking experts here.

    glad to hear that. will most likely buy a switch when the full hack is released(especially considering that nintendo will most likely release a hardware revision that fixes this exploit.
    hope it is released soon 🙂

  6. Brandon

    Someone released the bug too, with a very small writeup

  7. Sohel

    Hi there,

    Kate strikes back and released on test POC payload + docu.


    Scripts here : https://github.com/reswitched/fusee-launcher

    @ Wololo, hello from France, cheers guy

  10. Switch ehhh

    I’d love to be excited about this. The problem is that there is nothing for the Switch that hasn’t been repeatedly nostalgia released to death by Nintendo. Having a *** over the backgrounds in Zelda isn’t that enticing either.

  11. Spandaman

    Reminds me when reloaded got leaked and many ppl soft bricked lol… patient ppl got a fully working version

  12. HypeTrain!

    Wow, so much great news coming out today. Can’t wait for the Switch to finally be free of Nintendo’s shackles.
