We see alot of Switch Handheld part, and Joy-Con's, but what about that Micro Game Cartridge itself containing Zelda!Of Course Licking Them is Fun, infact due to their size, Nintendo Switch Game Cards have been coated with denatonium benzoate - a non-toxic, bitter-tasting agent - as a safety precaution against accidental consumption by young children, but hey we are not young anymore, we are old pirates, so lets crack them open and see what is inside under that horrible bitter-tasting cover to prevent eating!
Some hackers have decided it is better to open up the Nintendo Switch Cartridge, instead of just Licking Them, because well this is where big 'N' is scared, they no longer using the Nintendo 3DS or NDS Design, but a new one, but how much is it different inside!
The above list is from smiba of GBATemp, on what he has 'done' so far, and the following pictures are from his 1-2 Switch cartridge:
But the Zelda Cartridge is different inside its more modern with custom MXIC Secure Flash chip, with pinout direct on the bottom, more like a custom 16gb MicroSD wafer, just a little thicker!
So there seems to be at least two different Switch cartridge designs, but this is just the early baby steps, there is alot more coming, so stay tuned as soon we are planning to get hold of some internal X-Ray's of the custom Secure Flash chip itself for some juicy details!
