  6. jj says:

    did not take too long. i wonder now how long before ninty releases the hw fixed version of their console. it may already be in production or soon to be.

    • Alex Atkin UK says:

      Seems likely its in production with them already launching firmware support it.

  7. ferky says:

    Perfect! now… someone knows how can we do it? i see the links but it is so complicated understand the first step of compilation…. now waiting for a easily way to do.

    First coment. I hope homebrew comes to 4.1.0 soon

    • Alex Atkin UK says:

      Homebrew will come to any version by booting Linux, its piracy that may be firmware dependant.

    this is it, i am first.

  10. Albytrozz says:

    Yeah except you kinda left out the part about having to short out pins on the switch or right joycon to get to RCM so it’s not as easy as a few button presses…

    • wololo says:

      Yup, I misread the “home” button part, where the “home” button actually is a minor hardware mod. It looks very simple, though, as demonstrated by hackers, it’s really just a tiny wire to connect.

    So, is now the time to run to the next store and buy a Nintendo Switch? Should I be afraid that vulerable Switches will be out of stock and only new revision Switches will be available if I wait a little bit longer?

  13. Rahul says:

    Hey now I need a switch!!!! Is the Mariko hardware something to beware of while purchasing or will it be released in the future. Planning to buy from Amazon USA

  14. SomeGuy says:

    All I want is to multiboot into the nVidia Shield firmware, so my Switch can serve as a multipurpose system.

    I’d also take an nVidia Shield loading Switch firmware.

  15. Linuxless says:

    Hi I made the hardmod wire , I don’t have Linux or Mac OS to try to launch Fusée Exploit :/

    • mb says:

      If you can’t install Linux, you’re not ready. Sorry, kid. Wait until late June for the full CFW release and watch a YouTube video.

  16. Dr.Waka says:

    Cant wait for work to end today so I can start compiling at home… Going to try getting Linux and Qemu running so I can play some Starcraft and Diablo on the go.

    Thanks for the release and all the hard work you guys have done for us!

    I’d really love to be a part of online community where I can get opinions from other experienced
    individuals that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know.
    Appreciate it!

  20. I am really enjoying the theme/design of your blog. Do you ever run into
    any internet browser compatibility issues?
    A few of my blog audience have complained about my blog not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome.

    Do you have any advice to help fix this issue?
