With custom chips included to add various hardware features (aka 'coprocessor' and 'enhancement chips').

Currently, redguy is developing SA1 support for SD2SNES which is an advanced open source FPGA based SNES copier (flash cart).

The SA-1 core has reached private beta stage and SmokeMonster recently posted a video testing it, check this forum thread over at krikzz.com for more info.

Thanks goes to...

Nintendo has filed a lawsuit against the alleged operator of the popular console ROM sites LoveROMS.com and LoveRETRO.co.

The sites are among the most notorious online hubs for pirated games, according to Nintendo, and face millions of dollars in potential damages. With the launch of NES Classic Games on their Nintendo Switch coming up soon in September, it means we are in for another wave of crackdowns by big 'N' over any site that offers Emulators or Retro ROMs for playing Nintendo games on other platforms.

This script requires python 3, although I think porting it to python 2 shouldn't be too hard. No library download is required.

This neat script was released by @rkk on Sunday, at the time it was basically useless, but now with the nice update by Xecuter with their SX v1.3 you can now make better usage of packaging up your items as 'NSP' containers and installing them via the devmenu.
NOTE: Using this script to download unowned content (and most probably owned too) will lead to a ban. Don't hold me responsible for decisions YOU decided to take.

CDNSP is a Python3 CDN downloader. It needs the requests library (pip install request). tqdm (pip install tqdm) is optional and will make your progress bars look better. Maybe some more, I'm not sure.

Before I begin my review I would like to thank Team-Xecuter for giving me a review copy of their SX OS.

Hence this review is specifically for the SX OS which is meant for people who already has a jig / tool and a usb cable etc.... If you don't have those then I recommend you getting the SX PRO instead.

Enjoy my review! :)

Honestly, I had my doubts about the SX OS but after spending less than 10 minutes with this my doubts were gone.

What took me by surprise was that how easy it was to set up and how quick and well it operates. To set it up it was just a matter of going onto the Team Xecuter SX official website then downloading the required files they even have an easy to follow manual which I followed to a T and had no issues what so ever.

Once I had everything set up and clicked Inject Payload in a few seconds my switch was into the TX Boot Menu

MaxConsole Official Review of the: RDS Industries Officially Licensed Nintendo Switch Game Traveler Deluxe Travel Case
This is the official Nintendo carrying case for the Nintendo Switch home entertainment console.

Features listed on the package:
  1. Deluxe Travel Case
  2. Game Card Case 2 pcs
  3. Micro SD Card Case 2 pcs
As with any handheld console, one must take care in owning it. This travel case promises to hold and protect the switch as well as being durable with a 1680D hard shell for maximum protection. To be fair, this case does cost a little bit more than other, more plain, cases available, but it has a much more stylish look than the competition.

At MaxConsole, we strive to give you reviews on the latest and best quality Nintendo Switch products and this is no exception. We will take a close look at this carrying...
Right ladies and gents, I won't be covering as much as @realtimesave, as I am certain he has done an amazing review that I can barely add to, But here goes:

I received my review unit on Saturday, but was away so have not had a great deal of a chance to play with it fully.

This came in a very nicely packaged box containing the slide dongle to go in the right joy con, The USB-C payload dongle and a Micro-USB cable, I quite like the packaging logo matching the OS background logo.

20180623_120039.jpg 20180623_120124.jpg

Now as to start with I inserted the USB-C payload dongle into the USB-C port at the bottom of the switch, And then sliding jig dongle into where the right joy con slides in, Obviously make sure the pins are to the bottom with the ON to the bottom on the outside. Also pulled the Samsung 256gb SD card and put the boot.dat file on from the SX OS 1.2 zip file....
Team-Xecuter along with MaxConsole are excited and proudly present to you:
The TX SX Pro Modification Kit With Custom OS

This is the worldwide premiere of the first and only soft mod / USB-C dongle kit available for the Nintendo Switch console entertainment system has arrived, and the following review has been updated today (June 24th), to match the latest SX OS v1.2 release earlier today, so if you read it few days ago, please read it for all the 'improvements'.

It has been over a century since Nintendo was founded in Kyoto, Japan and started selling their first games: the Hanafuda playing cards. Since then, this multi-billion dollar company has made arguably the greatest and most popular video game systems of all time, each of which eventually has been a playground for pirates as well as homebrew developers. Nintendo’s current flagship home system is also...
Touchscreen support, an audio player, an OSK for entering names and more!

Once you have a nicely hacked (modded) Nintendo Switch console, you need a easy way to manage all your homebrew, games, and custom files on your SDCard, without using the PC all the time, and this homebrew does just that, install it, and manage away, plus this latest update adds a ton of new features, and even an 'audio player', so its well worth upgrading to and using on your Switch console.
20/06 – Summer is coming, cheats as well!

The development team behind the very useful N2 Elite device (the little cool box, that allows you to backup, clone, copy, change your hundreds of Amiibo's has released a major big update for their users, and totally for FREE, check out their official PR release below:
Team-Xecuter is well known for their high quality console modification products, having especially made a name for themselves in the Xbox 360 scene.

SX Pro moves them into the current generation with a plug & play solution for Nintendo Switch. Inside the package you will find the SX Pro dongle, a small plastic “tool” and a USB cable.

The installation process itself is simple. With the unit powered on, you insert the SX Pro dongle into the charging slot on the bottom of the Switch and wait five seconds.

Then power off (fully, not sleep mode) the Switch and put in an SD cart containing the SX OS boot.dat file. Remove the right Joycon from the Switch and slide the small tool all the way down. It is conveniently labeled on and off so you can see which way it is supposed to go.

All The Keys Needed To Rule The Switch Kingdom Of Mario And Peach!

Evil Bowser is back and has stolen the keys to the Nintendo's EDEV castle, whom cares about the used up Princess when you can have all the development master keys instead, the rumor is an EDEV unit was sold recently on eBay and so of course it didn't take very long before all that good shit like TSEC+Fuses+NAND was dumped and shared.

Just like the other leaked 'XCI-Dumper' but with 'source code' and hopefully will be updated with more features!

GBATemp'er @jakibaki has taken the 'leaked' WAINCartDumperNX which is closed-source, and rip it apart and added the changes to the previous GITHUB repo that clearly the leaked author had taken the code from, and as such now we have 'open-source' dumper that can be updated!
Leaked from ReSwitched Discord Server, but it does work on your older (cart1)-type games on your exploitable Switch!

The piracy scene is on fire again (with a ton of usual scene drama on top to fuel the flames), after someone 'leaked' an 'Cartridge Dumper', but as @AnalogMan points out below, it does have some limits, like no support for newer (cart2)-type games, but the version attached is now updated with features to dump to FAT32 and to dump only your 'private certs', so check it out:
This is a tool to make switch hacking easier. It not groundbreaking, but it certainly isn't bad.

Even tho the SX PRO is coming next weekend, there is those that want to do 'Switch Hacking' on their own, or just use SX OS with PC, and if you one of those 'down-to-earth' (bare-bones) modders, then check out this handy-dandy All-In-One package of Switch tools!
Exploit for homebrewing DSi

FlipNote ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
Includes PSX, N64 and PSP!

I was bored waiting for my SX PRO to arrive, so was browsing the forum sites, and noticed this nice post by @natinusala on GBATemp, so I decided to steal it and copied it here for all you to read and enjoy trying out, as I like playing Retro ROMs on emulators! :)
