ShofEL2, a Tegra X1 and Nintendo Switch exploit

Welcome to ShofEL2 and Switch Linux, fail0verflow’s boot stack for no-modification, universal code execution and Linux on the Nintendo Switch (and potentially any Tegra X1 platform). Choosing whether to release an exploit or not is a difficult choice. Given our experiences with past consoles, we’ve been wary of releasing vulnerability details or exploits for fear of them being used primarily for piracy rather than homebrew. That said, the¹ Tegra bootrom bug is so obvious that multiple people have independently discovered it by now; at best, a release by other homebrew teams is inevitable, while at worst, a certain piracy modchip team might make the first move.
