We saw major progress being made on Linux for the Nintendo Switch a few weeks ago, and now, the team behind the hack has made even more progress.
The Fail0verflow team has posted a video on Twitter (spotted by Wololo), showing Linux running with touchscreen and 3D support.
No ad to show here.
Heck, the video even shows the Chromium web browser up and running on the Nintendo console.
Code execution is all the rage these days, but can your Switch do *this*? 😉 #switchnix pic.twitter.com/NMnBq61tOM

The team had earlier claimed that this method of enabling homebrew support can’t be patched in currently released Switch consoles and doesn’t require a modchip.
The Switch has also recently received a Homebrew launcher, Wololo reports. The launcher requires firmware 3.0.0 and lets you easily boot up the few available homebrew apps for the console.
