NXBoot iOS Tweak App Can Jailbreak Nintendo Switch Using iPhone


Sometimes we come across something that just makes our jaws hit the floor, and today is one of those occasions after we caught a glimpse of NXBoot, a new utility that makes it possible to run payloads on a Nintendo Switch.

What makes this all the more interesting is the fact that it requires a jailbroken iOS device (using Electra or otherwise) in order to work.

Available to download via GitHub right now, NXBoot uses a jailbroken iOS device in order to run the code that then goes off and jailbreaks its way into the Switch. This is accomplished by a USB cable that connects the two devices together and may have the potential to open the door to all manner of super-cool projects in the future.

The utility’s release was made public via social media and has caused quite a stir:

This is the first public release of NXBoot, a utility to run payloads on your Nintendo Switch.

I strongly recommend you to get familiar with the Nintendo Switch homebrew community prior to using this application to start anything on your Nintendo Switch.

Attribution and prior work: Fusée Gelée by ktemkin and ShofEL2 by the failoverfl0w team served as reference for payload construction. JustBrandonT from GBAtemp worked on a similar app independently of this project.

While the included video is very short, it does show the magic happening and that’s all I need in order to be get excited.

I am personally a huge fan of the Nintendo Switch, just as everyone else is, and I can’t wait to see where this kind of work takes us in the future.
