Switch Mariko SOC and bootrom vuln plugged...
switch modrobert writes: "This is a speculative post, so bear with me. After analyzing the Switch firmware 5.0.0 changes and reading SciresM's tweets, it looks like Nintendo is adding support for a new hardware revision of the Tegra CPU/GPU which is a SOC (System On Chip) dubbed 'Mariko'. The new firmware also includes a RomFS update with what seems like new crypto and support for the upcoming 'Mariko' chipset. My guess is that Nintendo is doing what Sony did with PS3 SuperSlim (déjà vu lv0.2), they are adding a new bootrom which plugs the current vulnerability and locking the lowest firmware to 5.0.0 for the new hardware in silicon. I agree with SciresM who wrote: 'Might be a good time to pick up a console with a vulnerable bootrom ;) '"

Upcoming CFW for Switch called Exosphere
switch [source: SciresM @ Twitter] Exosphere (A TrustZone re-implementation in Atmosphere, my Switch CFW) just successfully performed smcCpuOn, turning on a second CPU core for the kernel it loaded for the first time on hardware. Lots of debugging/work ahead, but great progress. :)

Happy Switch-release anniversary, everyone! :)

Homebrew Launcher released for Switch!
switch modrobert writes: "Plutoo just announced in a tweet that the Homebrew Launcher for Nintendo Switch has been released! The exploit is browser based and currently works with firmware 3.0.0. After installation the Homebew Launcher can be started by accessing the 'Album' icon on the Switch. The installation requires DNS settings hack pointing to either external HTTP server or your own local one.

You can find the official site with usage instructions and FAQ here:

hactool released for Nintendo Switch
switch [source: SciresM @] After much work, I'm finally satisfied enough to release a 1.0 build of hactool! The tool currently supports most Switch formats (NCA, XCI, HFS0, PFS0, RomFS, NPDM, Package1, Package2, INI1, KIP1):

hactool is a tool to view information about, decrypt, and extract common file formats for the Nintendo Switch, especially Nintendo Content Archives.

WIP: The Homebrew Launcher for Switch
switch modrobert writes: "plutoo tweeted a screenshot of the homebrew launcher for Switch which is work in progress hinting it would be released on February the 1st, 2018. Quote: 'Trying to not create a toxic environment -- will boot both libnx and libtransistor homebrew.' Looks promising so far.

Team ReSwitched octrelease
switch [source:] ReSwitched is proud to announce that a large portion of our development, previously done behind closed doors, is moving to the open. From the beginning, we have strived to be as transparent as is possible; today’s shift follows through on that commitment.

PegaSwitch 3.0 is an extensive exploitation toolkit for Switch OS 2.0.0-3.0.0. With complete support for IPC, a brand new API, and automatic gadget hunting, it gives us a new window into the Switch platform.

libtransistor is our open-source SDK for the Switch. Designed from the ground-up to make use of the LLVM+Clang stack, we intend for it to be a highly-accessible, community-driven platform for homebrew development.

Mephisto is a high-performance emulator for non-game Switch binaries. Mephisto features a high degree of determinism, GDB debugging support (even allowing source-level debugging of sysmodules in IDA), and compatibility with a large number of Switch OS features. To clarify again: Mephisto is not for and will never be for games. But it is an invaluable tool for development.

Flogging the switch paid off!
switch modrobert writes: "After a few busy days and mainstream media attention the usual suspects over at #switchdev on EFnet managed to figure out how to trigger the hidden golf game (title: flog titleID: 01008BB00013C000) in the Switch console. Quote plutoo: 'This is a tribute to Iwata who was headed Switch dev until he passed away in 2015. He is also the one who wrote the Golf game back in 1984.' As far as corporate Easter eggs go this one had a humble reason, respect with hats off to Nintendo in honor of their fallen CEO Satoru Iwata. Read on for instructions how to launch the game...

Switch smhax plugged in firmware v3.0.1
switch modrobert writes: "The previously known sm:h (aka smhax) bug for Switch which was being exploited privately by a selected few is now plugged in Switch firmware v3.0.1 and made public for that reason. The bug which exist in firmware v3.0.0 and below allows for access/registration/unregistration to/of any arbitrary service with full permissions if the user creates a new 'sm:' port session but bypasses API initialization. Quote SciresM @ Twitter: 'For context: the sm bug is what's enabled basically everything from game-romfs/savefile/sysmodule code dumping to even other known bugs. RIP'"

PegaSwitch by ReSwitched project update
switch modrobert writes: "SciresM just reported the following on Twitter: 'Cleaned up the last pegaswitch memory corruption issues. Stress test of 10000 svc calls + full memdump + available sysarchive dump passes :)' For those who don't remember what it is: 'PegaSwitch is an exploit toolkit for the Nintendo Switch. By taking over WebKit, we are able to read/write memory, call native functions, and otherwise explore the functionality of the Switch from the domain of the WebKit process. This does not currently enable homebrew software, but is built to allow other hackers to work toward that goal.'"

Zelda: BotW for Switch decapped
switch modrobert writes: "The guys over at Texplained have posted an interesting blog piece about the game Zelda: Breath of the Wild for Switch with technical info and decap of the custom flash circuit from Macronix which also includes a secure module (ARM TrustZone SoC core?) for encryption purposes. I know this is part of Texplained's business model as a reverse engineering service, to post teasers of popular circuits without going too deep, and only those who can afford the work will benefit from the complete results, but it's still fun to read. Thanks goes to GaryOPA for the heads up.

Switch reverse engineering efforts
switch modrobert writes: "I recently checked two hardware related Switch reverse engineering (RE) projects looking promising so far. First up is the Gamecard wiki by Team ReSwitched which besides pinout provides some logic analyzer (LA) output and general protocol behavior. Then we have dekuNukem's Joy-con RE work which also includes pinout and LA output, but goes a bit deeper in the protocol analysis regarding identifying individual packet data functions. There is also the HID Joy-Con Whispering project by shinyquagsire23 which is software oriented and focuses on communicating with the Joy-Con over USB HID protocol from a PC with Linux. Thanks goes to GaryOPA over at for the heads up who also posted his take on these projects."

Switch system update 2.1.0 is out
switch modrobert writes: "Switch firmware v2.1.0 has been released by Nintendo. Officially this update brings 'General system stability improvements to enhance the user's experience' according to the change history, unofficially this update plugs the PegaSwitch browser exploit by the looks of it. No surprises there, it's the industry bullshit boilerplate statement for security related patches. For once, instead of spreading lies to the customers, would the truth really be so bad?"

Switch hacking on a roll...
switch modrobert writes: "The Switch hacking scene has really taken off to a degree it's hard to keep up with, lots of stuff going on. I want to thank GaryOPA for sharing news from in the Switch forum here at EurAsia. I also want to take this moment to push for the wiki which is promising regarding hardware and development info in general, and an important part in the overall progress towards homebrew on Switch. You can find the related chat on EFnet IRC channel #switchdev. I've just updated our famous Hacko-O-Meter a notch (down on the right column of this page), keep going. ;) "

Nintendo Switch Launch Day
switch modrobert writes: "That awkward time when media hype and bloated expectations meets reality is upon us as Nintendo Switch launches world wide. Plenty of mainstream headlines out there to choose from, ranging between positive to negative, and some with a bit of both. Also, it wouldn't be a proper launch without customers lining up outside the brick and mortar stores. Personally I'm more interested in what the hacking community can do for Nintendo Switch (as mentioned in previous story), and after checking Twitter today it seems the usual ninty suspects either got the Switch already or just ordered one. Let the hacking begin! ;D

Warming up for Nintendo Switch...
switch modrobert writes: "As you probably know by now the Nintendo Switch has been announced for release in early March 2017. I have added a new tech forum and a dummy wiki page as usual when a console launch is imminent. There are plenty of websites out there posting general news about the Switch, and opinions can be found everywhere, but here at EurAsia we have a one-track mind: Let the hacking begin! ;D "
