New Nintendo Switch 3.0.0 Hack Allows Homebrew Code

We’ve learned that hacker Daeken of Team reswitched has announced that Pegaswitch, their exploit tool for the Nintendo Switch, now supports homebrew code.

The new exploit runs on the system’s 3.0.0 firmware, and it enables usermode code execution.

The team is currently focusing entirely on firmware 3.0.0, which you can now only upgrade to with a physical copy of Pokken Tournament DX. If you’re on firmware 3.0.1 or above, you’ll have to wait until further exploits are discovered.

    Isn’t the current version of Switch 4.0?

    This, pretty sure the idea is that you need Pokken to update 3.0.0 if you’re BELOW it, because updating otherwise gives you a higher firmware.
