Nintendo Switch – Hackers Claim To Have Run Linux On The Console

News in the Nintendo Switch Hacking Scene

Every time a new console is released, hackers aim to break the protections in place in order to install their custom programs. A mission that started very early on the Nintendo Switch, and it seems to start to bear fruit today.

The fail0verflow team reported on Twitter that it was able to bypass the defenses of the hybrid machine to launch the Linux operating system. A phenomenon that should give rise to “home” programs, that even the NES had in its days. The hackers claim that the flaw can not be patched, which should lead to Nintendo having to make some adjustments at the hardware level.
