Switch Has Only Been Out For Few Hours, And Already Neat Pictures Are Being Tweeted Out By Sceners!We have already seen various 'teardowns' and 'pictures' of the inside, and Switch menus, guides and all that stuff, but what about the true underground scene stuff, what is the Operating System powering the new device, and will it be exploitable by modders and hackers and of course when, and do that what with it besides of course the ultimate goal of running homebrew, emulators on it, and of course pirated games, and already within a few hours of launch we have gotten some clues on what the OS might be and what might be attack-able to reach those final end-goals.
Whenever a new video gaming system gets launched, there is always many reasons to be wondering what makes it tick inside!
#1 - @Marcan42 the world famous member of Team Fail0verflow got his Switch in which he is only going to play Zelda on and has no interest in 'hax'ing it' but he was quick to point out that it seems the Switch is also FreeBSD based just like the PlayStation 4 console is, at least from reading Nintendo's own fine print legal scroll up of rights, licenses, etc. it all points in that direction, as shown in the main news picture above.
#2 - Does or Does Not the Switch have a 'web browser' that is the question to be answered since it was hot point of exploits for the Nintendo 3DS, and while officially it does not, it does seem to have an mini-web applet, that is needed to be able to authorize yourself onto some nearby WiFi hotspot like at Starbucks, and as such that app looks like you will be able to be easy redirect to other possible 'login' pages like Twitter as shown below by @enMTW:
#4 - And then finally, we have that big chunk of Plastic, the DOCK for your Switch, what is inside that, as that was the only missing picture from the previous teardowns, and @naehrwert decided to answer that question for everyone to see for themselves, is just a plain USB-C Split-Out Box, and there is no EXTRA FAN in it at all!
So there you go folks, only out for less than a day and already some neat 'underground scene' info is flowing out from usual sources.
