The talented developer Plutoo informs us that he has managed to write arbitrary code in the Kernel of the Nintendo Switch!
First of all, all we know for now that this Kexploit that Plutoo is Tweeting about is that it was not obtained alone, and he informs us that a lot of work has been done to achieve this, and he wishes to thank all those who participated, but he keeps the list anonymous.
Sadly, all this current work by developers is done on the older Switch firmware v3.00, and this Kexploit most likely was reached using the previously published SM:Hax details by Team ReSwitched, and if could be possible to port it to work on other newer firmwares, there would have to be alot of work in finding new possible entry points because sadly all the old ones were patched when v3.0.1 was released.
Of course there is no plans to release this Kexploit info to the public, as everything being done remains in private for now, but at least we know work is moving along with the Switch, and hopefully a way to stay on v3.00 is found as Super Mario Odyssey ships with v3.0.1 which means if we want to play the latest retail games, our Switch consoles will end up being upgraded to non-exploitable firmware.
