    Without the 32gb eMMC NAND Module plugged in, the Switch goes into NVidia DFU Mode!

    @Maximus_64 noticed right away that when dumping the removable 32gb eMMC NAND Module on the Switch, the motherboard part without it installed, boots up into Nvidia DFU mode, and now @pgarba has modified the 'tegrarcm' utility to support Switch usage!

    Hacking into the Nintendo Switch is moving along at an rapid speed, its only been out just over a week, and another major step has been undertaken, trying to access the 'Secure Boot' area, but what is missing still is the AES key that the Nvidia chipset wants, but one byte at a time, it will surely be discovered at some point in the near future, and then its basically child's play from there on it as we move deeper inside the Switch and discover its secrets to unlock!
    You can check out the official site linked below for more info, and the news source for more links and info from adam235 regarding it.
