    Team ReSwitch has been looking at the 'cartridge protocol' on the Gamecards used on the Nintendo Switch hybrid!

    Scene Development Team ReSwitch, first famous for releasing their 'PegaSwitch' webkit exploit toolkit, has also been busy studying other areas of the Nintendo Switch console, and recently they published their work-in-progress in analyzing the Switch 'gamecards'.

    We have reported before on the 'Reverse Engineering' of the cartridge, but recently there been some nice 'logic analyzer' progress that has helped id some commands and the pinouts used for cartridge which is basically just a 'memory chip' mounted on small PCBoard.

      A teardown was down earlier, AFAIK this is just further work.
