Unlaunch.dsi is the first ever [released] bootcode exploit for DSi consoles.

It's been crazy day for 'Nintendo' on heels of Switch drama, an 'coldboot exploit' for their old DSi is now out! :)
Manjaro Linux PS4 v2 is now available and incorporates the latest contributions from the Psxita team and the latest Linux kernel from Eeply.

Logically, all PS4 firmware 4.05 / 4.55 (FAT / SLIM / PRO) should now be able to launch and use Manjaro Linux, which I pre-configured by default.

The 'scene drama' has not stopped, as now the same anonymous source has released the details on the Tegra X1 Bug, which also takes digs at all the various scene developers:
Going to be an uphill battle now, to see whom of the above list comes out on top of all this ongoing Nintendo Switch 'scene drama'.
Modding Project by @WiiuGold, turning an Amazon DIY Mini-Cab into nice finished box for your Retro Switch Gaming!

The other day, I was chatting with @WiiUGold from GBATemp, helping him out with some info on getting his ESP8266 device working on his Switch using the @RetroGamer_74 payloads, and he posted some cool 'Mario Cab' photos, and then decided to show his thanks for our MaxConsole UnderGround help, by making another 'Switch Cab' this time with an skin matching our site, so check out the cool photos below of the whole building, sanding process, and the finished artwork afterwards, then all you got to do is slide in your Nintendo Switch console like shown in his early Mario one and enjoy some cool-ass Retro Gaming in pure Arcade style! :)

@q3k Also releases matching .IDC for the leaked ROM, so now everyone can enjoy combing thru it looking for exploits!

Earlier today, a similar anonymous source that previously leaked the 'master_key_03' (trading card version), has now leaked the Tegra X1 Boot ROM (Nintendo Switch).
It's of no use to any end-user, and all important teams have this file long time ago, and its missing all the 'ipatches' that are added onto it by Nvidia and Nintendo with each new firmware revision, but still packed away inside this 96kb file is whole bunch of bugs that most likely have all been corrected with the upcoming 'Mariko' T214 silicon die of the newer Tegra X1 which still at least 6 months away, but if you do want to comb thru it, attached is the matching IDC file from @q3k released earlier on Twitter:
Enjoy, and please remember that sharing in the scene is caring about the scene! :)
UPDATED: 201804.22 - With HACToolGUI v0.03a and all the released keys in the right format, ready to go for you!

There has always been 'scene drama' over posting and leaking of 'keys' that are needed, and there is going to be more fights soon as you can see above this news story, the Tegra X1 Boot ROM (Nintendo Switch) has now leaked, and it also seems to include a unknown Switch SHA1 keyhash F8001BE1190CAED74BBDDAD78667877C84D1A128 so for sure there is soon going to be more updates, in the meantime enjoy our latest 'pirate flag' package for your own internal in-house Educational and Research needs! :)

Microsoft is getting set for E3 to kick off this summer and ahead of that event, Microsoft is adding some new features to the Xbox One.

Do your eyes get tried when playing for many hours on your Xbox One? -- Even tho, you upgraded your monitor with 120hz support, the poor outdated XB1 still is throwing you horrible flicking 60hz refresh to your tried eyes, well soon you will be able to wipe the tears from your eyes, because May is just around the corner and its blooming not flowers, but features for all those with Xbox One consoles.
After the Switch brought in $30 billion (U.S.) since its debut last year, Nintendo’s new line of interactive cardboard accessories, Labo, might signal a new direction for the company.

Before there was 'video gaming' there was LEGO bricks, now LEGO can barely stay afloat, but big 'N' thinks the future of 'young gamers' is 'cardboard' in this case LABO for their Switch which has not really captured the 'under-16' crowd, so there is alot of optimism for their sheets of cardboard that you can turn into toys which interact with the console, but so far its not taken off with investors, they are waiting to see if it will be big 'N' next 'billion-dollar' hit, or will it flop like pile of wet worthless cardboard that it really is! :)
