System Titles

<fill this in (manually) later>

  • 0100000000000824(Mariko Config), 0100000000000825, 0100000000000826 were added.
    • 0100000000000824 provides configuration for the new "T214" SoC.


Everything under RomFS was updated.

A new folder "a" was added, in addition to the existing "nx" folder, containing a separate "bct" and "package1". These seem encrypted/meant for the new "Mariko" hardware that support was added for.

Secure Monitor

The Memory layout was changed significantly:

  • .text, .rodata, and .data are now separate sections, instead of being mapped RWX.
  • Physical layout in TZRAM changed significantly, with pk2ldr being in low TZRAM instead of high TZRAM.

In addition, there were changes to the SMC interface:

  • smcLoadSecureExpModKey no longer exists.
  • smcLoadRsaOaepKey has been replaced with a new SMC (0xC300D60C) that loads two keys into TrustZone.
  • smcGetConfig was extended with two new config items:
  • -GetConfig(16) now does the following, which seems to check whether the Switch is running on a Tegra 210:
   return (FUSE_RESERVED_ODM4 & 0x800) &&  FUSE_RESERVED_ODM0 == 0x8E61ECAE &&  FUSE_RESERVED_ODM1  == 0xF2BA3BB2 ?  (FUSE_RESERVED_ODM2 & 0x1F) : 0
  • Getconfig(17) now checks whether package2 is plaintext or encrypted.

<fill in the rest later>


Keyblob 5 is now used, instead of 4. New NCA keydata is now used as well.
