Switch Game Scene Warez Releases Are Getting Better Now!

There been alot of Nintendo Scene action recently, and on the dark underground 'net side even more action with BigBlueBox releasing at first Proper Complete Switch Game Cartridge Dumps, but now their recent 50th Switch game warez ,nfo release file contained also some very useful NCA 'key encryption' info! :)

Still missing is the NCA 'body keys' which there is three of them so far, that is what is needed now before actual dumps of like 'Super Mario Odyssey' can be unpacked, but of course none of these 'warez' releases are any good without a nice Team-Xecuter modchip with CFW running, or the Rumored Switch Flashcard, but it looks like it all going to be coming together very fast over the next few months For Switch owners to enjoy, so Stay Tuned as the Switch is on Fire! :)

Just a clever 3D Printed Fake? - (OR) - Is the NXFC really coming soon in Summer 2018!

There has been lots of Nintendo Switch Scene News recently, first with the 34c3 Conference, then with Team-Xecuter video, then later on Team Fail0verflow Coldboot Exploit Demo, and now recently @NicoAICP whom developed the 'XCI Reader' app has announced on his Twitch channel that an actual Nintendo Switch Flashcard is currently in development with a planned release in Summer 2018, but all was shown was clearly an 3D Printed Case, with discussion that PCBoard is still in development design stage and it will be sold both as DIY Kit and also fully-assembled, but you can only flash one actual Switch game at a time onto the device.

YuZu.jpg
The team behind popular 3DS emulator Citra have announced an emulator for the Nintendo Switch called Yuzu, just 10 months after the console first hit stores.

The Internet was destroyed yesterday when Yuzu was announced on Twitter, that a emulator for Switch is in development, of course right now its just a basic framework of code on GITHub which you have to compile yourself and it doesn't do much, but it is start and it has caused the 'net to start dreaming of playing Super Mario Odyssey in 4k at 60fps at some point in the near future on their PC Gaming Rigs.
If you into playing around with compiling code, and trying out NRO binaries on your PC to see what works and doesn't, check out their official GITHub page, and their official development...

"We made a nice scroller for Switch"

Hot on the Switch scene hype started by Team-Xecuter with their 'TX Logo' booting up instead of 'Nintendo' on the Switch console, Team Fail0verflow has decided to release their own video that goes even more, adding a nice 'demo scene scroller' to the boot-up process.

But others have pointed out clearly fail0verflow video shows it running on v3.0.0 firmware based on the final 'home screen' ending, so not the latest Switch firmware, and other developers have pointed out they didn't replaced the start-up logo which is at start-up, before state2, so clearly TX has a way to access the lowest level of firmware state1 or state0 to be able to resign the logo graphics area.

It was almost two decades ago that the Gameboy Advance system was released and people are still playing it. With AGS-101 backlight mods being abundant these days and plenty of flash cart options being available over the years, there is still demand for the most compatible and technologically advanced flash cartridge for the GBA.

The hidden Switch tribute to Iwata's passing has been scrubbed clean from the latest Switch firmware release!

Soon after the Switch was released, scene developers discovered there was hidden executable code called 'FLOG', and it turned out to be triggered on Iwata's passing to better life, and it was fully playable version of NES Golf with even two-player Joy-Con support!
But big 'N' has removed it and replaced it with 'signed' garbage in their latest firmware update for the Switch, so R.I.P. FLOG! :(

FlashHax.jpg
Amazing Enough An New WebKit Exploit Found On the Now 11 Year Old Nintendo Wii Console!

This new webkit exploit has been named FlashHax by its designers and is based on a code execution via the Internet Channel which is still available on the now retro Wii console and is very reminiscent of how webkit exploits are running on newer consoles like the PS4.

The main advantage of this FlashHax is to be able to launch only through the network, therefore there is no longer a need to use or own an SD card to install it.

Hopefully in the near future this evolves to an online homebrew store where the exploit will be integrated to trigger and you will be able to easily enjoy homebrew games and emulators without having to install any file on your Wii console.

Here is the current FlashHax guide:
