Now everyone can enjoy combing thru it with their HEX Editor looking for 'holes' to exploit in this tiny 96kb of goodness!

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...

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 -- Even tho, you upgraded your monitor with 120hz support, the poor outdated XB1 still is throwing you horrible flicking 60hz refresh to your tried eyes, well soon you will be able to wipe the tears from your eyes, because May is just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.

LaboCars.jpg
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! :)

Campo Santo's 'In the Valley of Gods' is now a Valve game.

Campo Santo has already been regarded in 'studio' business as the little engine that could, and it has Cho-Cho so well, that its been noticed by big boys finally, and Valve has snapped the whole train set to make it part of the much larger grand station of gaming! :)

Game Party Play Cards

Joking Hazard is an offensive card game where you compete to finish awful comics! It's a game that is equal parts creative storytelling and feeling bad about yourself. The damaged minds behind Cyanide & Happiness created it, so don't let grandma play unless you want her to die of a broken heart! There been alot of 'scene drama' recently, so why not take a break and enjoy the original 'classic nasty trading card game' and best of all right now its priced at only $13.59 when ordering one or more sets today using the Coupon Code: US1225, but you need to hurry up to get some jokes in your life as this special hazard deal ends on May 19th, so check it out now:

Team SALT developer 'teases' Linux working on his Switch, with pokes at @fail0verflow and @reswitchedteam teams!

Scene developer @ShinyQuagsire a member of Team SALT, tweeted a picture on 4/20 that they got Linux working along with a little dig at the other developer teams for taking months and not releasing anything, now today he has gone live with his 'work-in-progress' GIT page for Linux on Switch which sadly its a BYOB party, (Bring-Your-Own-Boothax), but once Team-Xecuter or ReSwitched releases, at least we will be able to enjoy Linux.

Unofficial Luma & Rei-Six CFW Compatibility Fixes For Usage With StarGate 3DS Flashcarts!

The title says it all. I found the whitelist code that was causing the problem in both of these and recompiled them. I realize there were modified Luma releases already out there, but this is the new one that has the cheat support built-in. The cheat files themselves are not included because they must be added on a per-game basis. Details here. A large collection of cheats is available here. Luma was also built with the Friends patch included, as all of my builds usually are.

I have named the files "Luma3DS_SG.firm" and "ReiNAND_SG.firm" so that they can readily be copied to the "b9s/payloads" and "gm9/payloads" folders of my InScripted AIO (or any other...

The Future is Now! #SNK #SNK40th #NEOGEO #ネオジオ

I can't believe its been four whole decades since the Fury of Gaming world was set on Fire with the original launch of NeoGeo system by SNK, but it seems they are now looking to re-capture the youth of yesterday's Arcade Gaming with possible launch of their own Official NeoGeo Classic Mini, and from the way the cloth is covering the picture above, I think its going to be an Mini Bartop Arcade! :)

The Red Magic gaming smartphone will be available to pre-order on Indiegogo starting April 24 at an Early Bird price of $399.

Gaming Smartphones are all the rage right now, first with the gaming accessory company entering the marketplace with their Razer Phone, and then Xiaomi's 'Black Shark' was revealed recently, and not Red Magic has appeared, with a nice 'customizable RGB' lighting, that all PC Gamers love to see in their desktop rigs, now they can take a piece of that with them on the go.
