PegaSwitch is an exploit toolkit for the Nintendo Switch

Team ReSwitched has been formed recently, and their end goal is enable full 'homebrew' support on the newly launched Nintendo Switch hybrid, and they are strongly against 'piracy', so any exploits released by this new team of scene developers will only be for 'homebrew', such as your own games you have coded yourself, or hopefully some kick-ass emulators that we can run on the Switch.
The Nintendo Switch has only been on the marketplace for just under two weeks now, and already we have posted news that amazing enough the Pegasus 64-bit iOS v9.3 JailbreakME Exploit works on the Nintendo System, as it seems big 'N' in all their wisdom used an old unpatched webkit for their hidden web browser from 2 years ago, so lucky for us for now those using Switch with current firmare v2.0.0 can explore a bit of the inner workings of the Nintendo...
