    "Hacking group Team Xecuter released a jail-breaking solution for Nintendo Switch earlier this month, opening the door to homebrew and piracy alike. However, according to a UK-based security researcher, the code contains DRM which can lock your Switch with a random password if there's an attempt to crack it for unauthorized distribution"

    The code cannot be triggered by normal use so those using the cfw normally should not have any problems. Just be aware that messing around with voltages and other experimental things could lead to brick.

    The use of this drm is also interesting considering some claims by others that parts of the code is stolen from other projects including hbl and atmosphere.

    Basically your console will break if you try and use your license on another console. Example you bought the SX Pro and used it on your console and your friend also has a console. If you try and install the same license you will brick the system.

    Yeah sure it's stupid, but it's how they prevent license sharing. It's common sense... or at least to me it is.

    Mate. Dongle is just payload loader, it is only about licence file. Make sure You do not mix up your micro sd's. If I am wrong please mention that because I do not want anyone to brick their console because my lack of knowledge :biggrin:
