According to MaxConsole’s writer ‘ub3r1337’, the pictures of the modchip, which is shown installed on an ipatched console, were leaked by an individual that’s part of the Team Xecuter’s inner circle of beta testers which lends a good deal of credibility to the report. From the images, the modchip doesn’t seem to be too large and appears pretty compact although it’s important to state that the final design may vary from what’s currently being shown as the product isn’t finalised yet.
When will Team Xecuter release their hacking solution? Should I go get a Switch?
With the release of TX’s hack seeming closer than ever, it may be a good idea to grab a Switch before Nintendo even gets the chance to think about patching it by releasing a new hardware revision
Keeping in line with Team Xecuter’s claim in late December about potential availability in early 2020, MaxConsole’s source disclosed that the first shipment will likely happen sometime after the Chinese New Year (25th January 2020) meaning that a retail release may not be too far off. However, it must be noted that the Switch Lite version will probably be released at a later date as previously reported in articles from last year.
As of right now, the latest news on the matter is that all Nintendo Switch units, including the Switch Lite, are compatible with Team Xecuter’s hacking solution (the Lite requires a different version) although this may change when the hacking solution is actually released. As a result, if you’re thinking about getting a Nintendo Switch, it might be wise to think about getting one soon because there’s no telling how fast Nintendo will patch the hardware vulnerability that makes hacking newer Switch models possible.
