Welcome to ReSwitched, where logic is left at the door, and where the dead go to die of gender politics discussions. So, if you’re feeling suicidal, come with me on this journey of soyboys going insane, some wacky drama, and stuff that will make you go, “How the fuck do these people even live outside of the internet?” As this will also be a journey as to show how ridiculous the “Wizards”, or moderators and staff members of the group who are working on hacking the Switch, actually are.

BACKGROUND
So, a bit of background is needed here in order to fully grasp this whole dramafest. Back in the olden days of 2008-2013, people used to hack Nintendo consoles for fun. Getting to play a virtual console game that wasn’t available, customizing every bit of your console, and so on. Welp, 2014 and forwards, the community is now flipped on its own head, and it’s all because of three thing: politics, incompetence, and ethics. These will appear very often throughout this piece, as we look over the individuals behind the ReSwitched community. So now, let’s view what made this whole community into a bunch of toxic, soyboy lolcows.

HEDGEBERG
c1.png

First, the main lolcow running the whole server, Hedgeberg. You’ll notice a pattern that most of these top-level “Wizards”, as their group calls them by, are indeed part of the very left side of the political spectrum, along with being a majority trans, as I can prove through these tweets she’s been tweeting out:

From what you’ve seen, she’s quite the social justice butterfly herself, but we’ll get back to her later.

KATE TEMKIN / KTEMKIN
c2.png

Next, we have Kate Temkin (Dead Name: Kyle Temkin), who is also trans. Which, from her Twitter, she seems like just another one of those Twitter InfoSec users. While, on appearance, you might be correct, but it’s the content outside of her Twitter that’s worth a bit of a laugh. An example of this would be her “political code” line shown below here, which is present in fusee-launcher.py for Fusée Gelée, one of ReSwitches’s huge exploits this year that even mainstream news is covering:

Code:
# this code is political -- it stands with those who fight for LGBT rights
# don't like it? suck it up, or find your own damned exploit ^-^

Which, while this is her code so she does have the freedom to type such into her code to distribute, I do think it’s one of the many ways this group squeezes in bullshit political commentary. And even then, if they were the opposite, I would still disapprove. And as such, I will also get to this point later. So, someone else from this community, Plutoo, who’s apart of the couple of individuals within this Switch hacking community that aren’t horrible pieces of shit, made a parody of this line of code:

And would you believe who showed up to ruin the fun:

DAEKEN / CODY BROCIOUS
c3.png

And, to top the conversation about these “Wizards” off, we have Daeken (Powerword: Cody Brocious). Who was previously putting his effort into the community, and IMGAUNE MY SHOCK, Daeken is wanting to ride on the trans-train as well. And, as of recent, they put out a blog describing why they quit the community, as they describe it to be “toxic”, with the previous statement being an example of this “toxicity”:

This, again, wasn’t immediately decried by everyone. Instead, these tweets have hundreds of likes. This community either tacitly accepts the transphobia, sexism, and racism that goes on, or it actively encourages them.

Frankly: Fuck that. This is not acceptable, it’s not conducive to real progress, and everyone who has watched while this has gone down and not said anything should be ashamed; you are part of the problem.

Many console hackers complain about the users – that they’re entitled, annoying, etc – and there’s plenty to support all of that, without a doubt. But they aren’t the ones with the megaphones. Those that have them should use them for good, and that simply isn’t happening right now.

ReSwitched has, by and large, remained an oasis in this ocean of shit, but it’s not immune. I got out of moderation for the server primarily because of the number of people I had harassing me. People accepting the rules and then immediately violating them, then harassing me in DMs in hopes I would … unban them? No. I already have one baby to take care of; I don’t need more.

http://archive.md/UzNSo

But, as I have shown and will continue showing, Daeken is completely incorrect with who and why this community is a toxic wasteland. The people who are making it toxic aren’t the ones who are making satire of the political bullshit being spewed out, it’s the ones who are doing the spewing themselves that are the true problem.

DRAMA OVER SHINYQUAGSIRE'S JOKES
Now, we can finally get to the more juicer part of this tale, which has had recent developments. I’m talking of course about Shiny Quagsire.

http://archive.md/W36vo

Shiny Quagsire is among Plutoo to be one of the only decent Switch hackers left that don’t completely shit themselves at the sight of a triggered joke (I’ll get to that later as well). But anyways, our story starts out with this tweet Quag posted of him launching Linux on his Switch, but take a closer look at the bottom portion:

Patches to be released later tonight (4/20) or tomorrow, cleanup is hard.
Reminder: Real hackers don't take months to write sdmmc drivers.

This one satirical jab at another developer, again, set off the ReSwitched team, being their usual autistic selves:

eighteen.PNG

However, a couple weeks later, Quag came at ReSwitched with a pretty hard punch. Showing that, even if they ban members from their discord, they will still leech off of you until you are bone dry, and will call you a dumbass as well:

Post-Ban Experiences
So naturally since I got the boot, you’d think I’d be left to myself, right? Wrong. ReSwitched is pretty much the ex you wish you never met. Even after I left ReSwitched, I continued to get DMs from B asking me about some of my Joy-Con research. I answered a few because even if I got booted, I could at least be civil. But the questions didn’t stop coming, even for extremely basic stuff for HID reverse engineering, like how SVCs work or whatever. Now, I don’t mind sharing info with people, but there’s something especially cruel about having someone from a group you were booted from come to you, ask a question, and then return back to their private group to reap the benefits while you’re left with nothing. If I had to describe the feeling, it’s like having that best friend from elementary school who stops talking to you in middle school because they have new friends now and you don’t share classes, but for some reason the only time they talk to you is when they’re asking to copy your homework since they have the same class you do but in an earlier period. And then you get to watch what used to be your best friend every day at lunch completely ignore you while they sit with their new friends.

Of course, Hedge, being her lolcow self, came on defense and unintentionally contradicts her own discord message, along with covering her ass in saying that, “He associates with a pedophile, therefore he’s deserving of the hate brigade.”:

RESWITCHED
26338222.png

Now, anyways, the community has also had drama spanning last year, with as before stated, a pedophile within the community. As this individual has the screen-name Dazzozo, and he was dating a 14 year old boy, with himself being 23. All within the continent of Europe, Daz from the United Kingdom, and him from France. While I fully disapprove of this sort of relationship, as with all pedophile relationships, this situation was handled very poorly, with a whole smear campaign against him, even after his digital departure. And also with that, there was no follow up to whether or not any of the ReSwitched “Wizards” actually followed up with any legal reports:

twentysix.PNG
twentyfour.PNG


And at the same time, Hedge’s recent defense is that Quag was supporting Daz, and as shown above, that isn’t the case.

THE MANY EXAMPLES OF BAN ABUSE ON RESWITCHED
let’s talk about mods abusing power. There are multiple threads on KiwiFarms showing off mods abusing their powers to ban opposing voices. ReSwitched “Wizards” fall under this certainly:

CONCLUSION
Now, what can we learn from this? Well, quite a few things. First, don’t let your political views get in the way of what you’re doing, as that’ll cause blindness to skill. Second, don’t be fucking autistic if you’re going to run an entire community, thus otherwise jokes will be taken out of context and ban powers will be further abused. Finally, just don’t be like these “Wizards” at all, as, besides their skills, they are completely inept to criticism and joking around.

And, to be honest, the community would be a much better place if this community was taken down, as Quag states:

And really, all ReSwitched has had going for them the last few months has been the release plans that they’ve put out in order to boost their egos and make anyone capable of releasing sooner feel like dirtbags for subverting their plans. Or if someone does make plans they can always release a half-baked product anyways like they did with their failed homebrew platform. Regardless, I’m wholeheartedly awaiting what comes next, and nothing would make me happier than to see the group which has caused me much personal anguish crumble and die.

ReSwitched has reaped the toxicity that they’ve sown. Now it’s time to raze the fields.

So Rest in Peace ReSwitched, and long live #switchdev on EFNet. ;)

Fucking lol at being banned just for asking them to explain what "triggered" means. :story: But then turning around and expecting to be taken seriously. Fucking pussies.

Seriously though, schala is the fucking lolcow here. Bans you for asking a question, bans you for pointing out his dysfunctional life, bans you for naming yourself after a type of robot.....

Fixed the title formatting. The way you originally had it implied these were all aliases of the same person and not a group of 3 tightly knit drama-mongers. So I put the collective group alias "ReSwitched" up front, and then separated the 3 people of interest into their own alias grouping.

Just a note for OP and any future thread OPs doing lolcow threads on 2-3 people. The slashes denote another name used by the same person. And to separate out the others you can use commas, the word "and" or an ampersand symbol (&). Examples of this are the one I did for Channel Awesome's upper management or the Digibro & Pro Crastinators Podcast thread.

Other than that, this OP looks excellent and I'm excited to see where this ride takes us.

This is not that surprising, anyone who follows console hacking scenes knows it's ripe with autism. It just used to be a lot better and funnier and not as annoying, like when Geohot hacked the ps3 and got sued and then immediately released a rap making fun of their lawsuit. Or when emukidid released the first n64 emulator on the wii in like 2008 and then updated it a bit and announced a ps3 version and then for like 3 years after put out absolutely nothing but updates saying "ITS COMING, IM WORKING ON IT" and then just stopped talking about it when it was clear that nothing was gonna happen.

As long as Smea and fail0verflow are around I'm not too worried, they're the ones who seem to get most things done. Consoles and handhelds are always going to be hacked, the Saturn got a new easier hack a little while ago even though disc swapping was around for years.

At the end of the day these troons can go on their power trip and act like they're important because pretty much nobody will remember them or care at all. A lot of people found out about the twilight princess save hack on the wii but 90% of them didn't know or care who put it together or know who Team Twiizers was. They just cared that they could play quake or DVDs on their wii, and it's going to be the same way for the Switch, who cares who made it, just show me the hacks.

Now thats fucking based.
Geohot was fucking savage back then.

Thanks. I was a bit confused on how I should tackle the title myself, but yeah I like this titling better.

In the console hacking scene this is pretty much true. The only thing that gets you rep is actually releasing the fucking thing. These troons will fade into obscurity in that community, bitching, moaning, and screaming wherever they go next, while the people who actually release stuff and make what people want will stay notable, in the sense that when they announce/talk about another exploit people will have interest in it since they can know they're not some 14 year old kid making shit up for follows.

Been watching the hacking scene evolve for ages now. Makes me pine for the old days. Glad others see how pathetic some hackers are these days. Yeah you can code big whoop, but trying to get an ego trip off of your efforts is not cool. ReSwitched and the Luma team before it were people who just wanted to see golden statues erected in their honor and have people bow down to them while being kings in a high castle.

Guess what? Console hacking aint what it used to be. Who even cares about homebrew now? My smartphone does every side feature a Craptendo Switch could and then some. Its not like 2003 where we were crying in the streets in joy because some kid coded an ereader for our GBAS. These new kids on the block don't understand that once they make this hack, everyone will mass exodus the Reswitched and theyll be yesterdays news. Maybe if they had a single sliver of social skill they could stay relevant afterwards by creating a strong community but guess what youre all a bunch of scriptkiddies that stew in hatred.

Sidon my man, I :heart-full: you and your post. But you forgot some of the other more arguably toxic Reswitched members so I have to give you only a 7/10. Watching the salt pour from an alt on Reswitched, on this weird forum, and old school GBATemp.

Been following this on the boards a long time. It is great that the troon discord shit has come to a head. Is it me or is it a pattern now of autistic troons running discord servers and acting like he(lets call them what they really are) is a an untouchable because "dey got private hax". I am sick of these narcissistic assholes doing this.
