UPDATED: 201812.08-v6.2 - So you like being a Pirate Crunch? But you need new v6.2 Keys!
No problem as below is the very latest in Crackerjack Decoder Ring Technology!

Couple of weeks ago, big 'N' rolled out their latest super-duper-protected Nintendo Switch Firwmare version SIX DOT TWO, and it was challenge to extract the keys from it, and as usual those that had the keys were keeping it to themselves, or writing fancy 'auto-generating' scripts, but if you want to unpack Smash Bros. and go around modding, and doing other neat tricks, you need 'KEYS', and well since you are loyal MaxConsole UnderGround supporter, we decided to update our list, with all keys you will ever need!

You no longer have to 'Bring-Your-Own-Keys', this new update has better support in 'auto-generating' them for you!
