PegaSwitch Updated for 2.3 & more Switch News

Okay, full disclosure, the 2.3 support for PegaSwitch has not been released to us, the public yet. But if you’re like me and were trying to stay on a lower Switch firmware but accidentally updated, you can now breath easy. Now, if you’re unsure as to what PegaSwitch is, we have a nice description for you from the dev’s themselves.

‘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.’

They go onto state their main goal as a group called ReSwitch:

‘Our goal is to fully document the inner workings of the Nintendo Switch, as well as hacking the console to allow homebrew software. We do not, in any form, support piracy; our hacks allow for running and developing homebrew software applications, and will not enable you to circumvent protections to permit piracy or the playing of illegitimately-obtained software.’

The only way that we knew that PegaSwitch has come to support 2.3 isn’t from the main ReSwitched website, but rather a Tweet from @daeken

So that’s the point that we’re all at now is waiting for PegaSwitch to be released for the newest Nintendo Switch firmware of 2.3. But the cool Nintendo Switch news doesn’t stop there. We’ve seen a few promising tweets from @ylws8 in the last 24 hours as well!

So as you can see, he’s working tirelessly at unraveling the files structure further. The second tweet is clearly a bummer, for those of you who know about Nintendo hacks, but nevertheless, where there is a will, there’s a way. And yellows8 has one hell of a will.

Here is the full list of members on the ReSwitch team as the whole group definitely deserves credit:

  • ‘Daeken
  • SciresM
  • SomeoneWeird
  • crowell
  • Dazzozo
  • yupferris
  • Normmatt
  • Jaames
  • & many others’
