A video showing off a build of Lakka that has a proof of concept for the Dolphin emulator on the Switch.

+Shrek got Ligma the Wii u has got 6 years to get hacked. the Switch has got only 1. the Wii u got nintendont, a Wii GameCube emulator ported to it due to similarity between the two consoles. and if you want another proof, look at how awfully Zelda botw runs on Wii u compared to Switch.
This is so misleading. The Switch will never be able to support playable Gamecube emulation without massively overclocking it, at which point, you may as well just throw your Switch in the trash, because it's not built to handle overclocking like that. When you overhype something that isn't possible, it kills overall enthusiasm when that thing doesn't happen, and damages the community as a whole because you promised too much. No amount of "optimization" could make the Switch capable of properly playing Gamecube games. Even the developers have said several times that it is more likely impossible.
That's not emulation. It's virtualization. That's like saying "the wii can run gamecube games". It was built to run them. So was the shield. Plus the fact that the Switch does not have the same hardware as the shield. It has a screen, controllers, speaker, etc, AND it's X1 is underclocked and undervolted due to battery and cooling restrictions.
Oh and, FYI. I'm an AMD power engineer and have already spoken to the lakka dev about this.
This person has video settings pretty much at minimum, and, even more importantly, is likely maximum overclocking both CPU and GPU, which will very rapidly destroy your Switch. I would not hold your breath for playable Gamecube emulation on Switch.
I have a question. Can hacking/home brewing your switch get you banned? And how is it that Nintendo detects that you’re hacking and bans you? Because I feel like it’d be pretty difficult to detect a custom os.
To think that I'll soon be able to play Pokemon Stadium, Colosseum, XD Gale of Darkness and Battle Revolution on the go genuinely gets me SO fucking excited! You guys have made impressive progress for the amount of time the Switch has been out, keep it up!
Omg, you have no idea what you're talking about. You're not even using basic logic.
The Wii U ran Gamecube games and Breath of the Wild NATIVELY. That's an extremely different thing than emulating it. By that logic, the 3ds should be capable of emulating 64 games, but it's not.
Christian Dawsey the Wii U CAN play GameCube games as I have since unplugged my GameCube and play those games on my Wii U. Breath of the wild runs in 900p on switch and 720p on Wii U. In portable mode the switch has zero problems with breath of the wild. Only has issues when playing on a tv in dense areas. Nintendo will get better at optimizing for the switch as time goes on just like every other console does.
+MaqueGenio boy thats some bull shit
A tablet made by nivida that has similar specs to the switch got fucking wii and gamecube games in china so that should be proof that the gamecube and wii can run on the switch
yes, the exploit is a hardware bug so as long as you have the first gen switch (which if I'm not mistaken is all of them till now), you can use it, you'll also need a computer an usb A to usb C adapter and some way to connect pin 9 and 10 on the right joycon.
They can't come for you for hacking the Nintendo Switch. The Switch is yours, but if you leak company information or sensitive information pertaining to unannounced Nintendo matters, then yes, they could.
alejandro torres martinez you pay for the license if you’re purchasing them from a drm such as steam but if you buy a game physically you own that which is why it is legal to resell your physical games
thanks for sharing! really cool to watcht the progress on lakka :) soon emulation will simply be booting another os :P
anyone know if you can boot lakka simply thru sx os? "boot another payload" in the sx os boot menu. since lakka now uses fat32 everything can be on one sd without partitions right? should then be simple to boot it from the sd thru sx os but i havent heard about anyone doing this. thanks :)
i hope in the future i can have:
Smash ultimate, Brawl mainly for Project:M (Legacy XP built or my own), &
Melee if dolphin can get to the point to 60fps on switch all in my switch
and Mario party 3 & 6 too (if Super mario party sucks like most mario party sadly do) via emulators i will be so happy ofc with support for docked mode, all switch controllers(even 3rd party once since i have some good wired once) and gamecube adapter+controllers
lets hope modding of smash ultimate/ mario odyssey can be banned safe in the future aswell
basically the exploit happens on the raw hardware level so unless
1) the CFW is doing something dumb
2) the user is doing something dumb (sending the console for repair with a modified right joycon being one of them)
or 3) there's a piece of hardware no one saw logging whatever is in ram
there's no way I know of for nintendo to find if you have been using a CFW or not.
how the exploit works is that you force the switch to boot in recovery mode which loads a firmware that should be signed by nintendo via USB, but sending a response that's too long allows to bypass the check (in short).
Obviously you don't go online.
However DN_Horror said "i always modded my nintendo consoles but i am afraid of losing access of the eshop on the switch"
They clearly want to go online with it. So I'm saying they will be banned.
51317 wtf are you talking about. Your making no sense at all lmao. The video is a Nintendo Switch running Retroarch witch is based off oF LINUX. THE Switch originally runs Horizon OS. Wtf does this have to do the the Nvidia shield lmao. You literally said that hackers ported the Switch.... To the switch! Wtf go smoke more bleach.
51317 Uuummm... No, this is Retro Arch, using Dolphin emulator and a bunch of other emulators mate.. which both of those are NOT anything to do with Nintendo, stop insulting people with silly insults when you don't even know what it is you're looking at... some people.
so lakka is it's own OS right , so can you setup your SD card to dual boot SXOS and lakka with /on the same SD card?
cold you have paylods for both lakka and SXOS on the pro dongle at the same time too so you can boot either lakka or SXOS on the go without using another SD card and your phone,just the dongle?
i wonder why we can't just run emulators from horizon
i think supposedly lakka uses less resources so therefore the power is there to run things like dolphin , but i am sure that at some point Nintendo plans on having a dolphin emulator if they ver decide to release GC VC games so i am sure it would be possible to run all this stuff directly from horizon
Actually - looks like you can copy straight to the SD Card (via windows) "lakka/storage/roms/downloads" just noticed it in the FAQ on the lakka-switch website.. Not sure about the dual boot option though.. I think I'll let someone else try that first :)
I'm guessing no you can't lakka runs of a different file system (linux), so you will need a separate SD Card.. That's why you can only transfer roms across to your Switch via WiFi from your Windows PC, because you PC doesn't recognise the SD Card when you plug it straight into your PC once lakka is installed.
