Is Nintendo Switch Already Hacked?

  • You Can Now Jailbreak a Nintendo Switch

Someone over on Reddit going by the name Jolimon has managed to make a travel dock for the Nintendo Switch that is significantly smaller than the one Nintendo ships with the console. The company already patched this particular bug, but Nintendo built the Switch with the vulnerable WebKit version. The retailer has stopped selling the console because they don't have any Switch available in stock.

However, using exploits to jailbreak the Switch, hackers may be able to understand the console's firmware and start looking at how it uses RAM, allow gamers to load homebrew apps, play ROMS that simulate Nintendo classics, and even browse the Internet as one would on a computer. Nintendo, however, did not confirm when the additional stocks will arrive. Another fellow hacker - LiveOverflow - has confirmed that the exploit works on the Nintendo Switch and a proof of concept was publicly released.

SuperData has also said Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has sold 1.3 million copies of the game for the Switch and these numbers do not include the Wii U version of the game.

Meanwhile, Amazon in the United States is also facing Nintendo Switch Supply issues.

After these rules are approved, the fitment of various commodities into the tax slabs would be taken up. The officers committee will circulate the set of nine regulations to the states by the next weekend.

Meanwhile, online retailer Amazon will be restocking its supply later this month. It's sold approximately 1.5 million units worldwide, most of which was during its initial launch week. That game debuted alongside the new My Nintendo account, which required fans to get on the company's website to sign up. Even "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" is experiencing shortages with the boxed version no longer available in Amazon U.K. and US and even in Game.

The exact price difference, Eurogamer reports, depends on the size of the retail print run ordered for the game. By delivering more power, the system can thus generally offer better graphical quality in its games than strictly mobile devices.

The good news for the Nintendo Switch is that exclusives will be coming.
