New Nintendo Switch Payload: ArgonNX

Guillem96 has a new payload available on GitHub: argon-nx.

As he states in the description there, it’s meant to be used to choose which payload you’d actually like to launch; just use the ArgonNX payload, & then choose from any BIN you have located in the \argon\payloads\ directory. What’s nice about this is that you can choose the logos to go along with each BIN. Still have some work to do, but this is what my selection screen looks like right now:

Some quick logos I put together to be used with ArgonNX. Crappy screenshot because apparently WordPress \ Gutenberg views BMP files as a security risk… See screenshot below.

Homebrewing ALL THE THINGS

Pretty accurate description of what I’ve been up to recently.

Since getting homebrew running on my Nintendo Switch, I’ve been booting up some old hardware & getting homebrew &\or custom firmware running there. The most recent three after the Switch have been my Nintendo Wii U, PlayStation Vita, & PlayStation 3. I’ve had CFW running on my Vita for a while, but also haven’t turned it on in ages. I came back to some interesting to features in the homebrew scene which was a nice surprise.

It took me a little while to get homebrew up on my Wii U, but was much easier than what I’ve been dealing with on the Switch. Same goes for the PlayStation 3. I’ve not yet gotten a chance to play around much with either system, but hopefully that will change in the upcoming weeks. I’ll be sure to post more information then, but in the meantime, here are some helpful sites I used in getting homebrew running on my Wii U & PS3:

Nintendo Switch Homebrew

I’ve been keeping an eye on this scene for a while now, eagerly awaiting the release of FusĂ©e GelĂ©e from Kate Temkin since she revealed the capabilities of the flaw. I’m a huge fan of releases like these that let you have more control over the system that you purchased, whether it be rooting an Android device, jailbreaking an Apple one, or getting Custom Firmware running on a Nintendo 2/3DS. I like those processes because it opens the platform to more customization, & not because of the ability to pirate games. Unfortunately, that part almost always follows when these techniques get released, which ends up giving users who want more open platforms a bad name.

Ethics aside, I am excited to get started on this myself.

EDIT: 20180501: Well I worked on this over the weekend, & was at least able to get the Fusée Gelée display:

Used a paperclip to bridge ports 1 & 10.

Nintendo Switch Console & Joy-Con Case Replacement

So it took me two attempts to get this done, but it was definitely worth it. I used the below kit & YouTube video for direction.

Below are some of the in-progress & completed photos of the mod:
