    Default [SWITCH]Huge exploit found on firmware 3.0.0: smhax


    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] have reported that a potentially devastating exploit has been found on Switch firmware versions 3.0 and earlier. If you are immediately interested in homebrew on the Switch we urge you not to update your device to firmware 3.0.1 or later.

    Prior to 3.0.1, the service manager ("sm") built-in system module treats a user as though it has full permissions if the user creates a new "sm:" port session but bypasses initialization.
    In 3.0.1, "sm" returns error code 0x415 if Initialize has not been called yet.

    Switch 3.0.1 fixed sm:h/smhax [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] -- bug that allows for access/registration/unregistration to/of any arbitrary service.

    This oversight by Nintendo may provide absolute control to most O/S services opening the doors for homebrew.

    that was quick
    You know he grew up as a little shitspark from the old shitflint and then he turned into a shitbonfire and driven by the winds of his monumental ignorance he turned into a raging shitfirestorm. If I get to be married to Barb I'll have total control of Sunnyvale and then I can unleash the shitnami tidal wave that will engulf Ricky and extinguish his shitflames forever. And with any luck he'll drown in the undershit of that wave. Shitwaves.

    it already is patched, the exploit was only made public after it was patched in the latest update.

    Nintendo don't really need a hack to boost sales, this isn't the original xbox...

    its not really worth hacking atm , low level hack would kill the system .
