The Nintendo Switch’s Unpatchable Hack

The Switch has gone longer than some without being hacked, although a few consoles still beat it; its direct handheld predecessor, the 3DS, took three entire years to get hacked. Nintendo actually had a contest where anyone that hacked the Switch would get up to $20,000!

The hack is possible because there’s something wrong with the unique Nvidia CPU it runs on, something with the way it starts up. Not only is it incredibly obvious and easy to exploit, it can’t be fixed unless the CPUs are physically switched out.
