Nintendo Switch: Team Xecuter asking for help to get their hands on unhackable models
We reported recently about a new revision of the Nintendo Switch that is protected against the Fusee Gelee hack. Team Xecuter, behind the “SX OS” Custom Firmware, have been looking among their customers for people willing to exchange their “unhackable” console for a hackable one (provided they have reasonable proof they have a patched console).
Team Xecuter’s goal is to be able to study the patched consoles to see if they can find a workaround for their solution to work on these devices. It’s unclear how much they can do though: recently, several hackers have found through reverse engineering that significant parts of their SX OS are just verbatim copies of open source code from the scene.
In the meantime, some of TX’s customers won’t be able to use the SX dongle on their device, despite what SX’s official site still claims at the time of writing. We can expect the number of people impacted by this problem to grow.
Team Xecuter refer to the unpatchable consoles as HAC-S-JXE-C3 models, with serial IDs starting with XAJ7004XXXXXX. Team Xecuter are offering to send a hackable consoles in exchange for the “patched” one to their customers who can prove that their dongle is not working due to owning a patched console.
