At a recent German hacking conference, a team of hackers have successfully hacked a Nintendo Switch. Taking advantage of the Switch’s off-the-shelf Nvidia Tegra chip, the team demonstrated that it is possible to install a program to allow for unofficial homebrew software. The video that showed users how to do so has since been scrubbed off the web and as always, we do not advocate hacking here at My Nintendo News. Hacking a console brings a good chance of voiding your warranty with Nintendo and, with regular updates being distributed by Nintendo, expect your console to work abnormally – or not at all.
This isn’t the first time the Nintendo Switch has been hacked. We reported back in March that a popular hacker posted his findings and highlighted the system’s hidden web browser that showed some vulnerabilities which were inevitably exploited.
