    I know that the old version looked more pleasant to the eye, but I think it is easier to find your own serial this way.
    Especially with the thought in mind that the switch is in homebrew infant state and that many firmware versions will likely follow in its
    lifetime. Listing every serial number would make the OP more and more inflated over time. The spreadsheet is better suited for the task
    of holding every serial and information.

    Like blood red. The blood of the Switch homebrew scene has been spilled and painted onto these controllers. RIP.

    3.01 is actually a good firmware to be on. May not get the 1st exploit, but atleast it can play latest games that require that firmware while we wait it out

    I think @SciresM would certainly dispute that claim.

    Eh you seem pretty confident at the fetus stage of exploiting. Theres always a loophole when it comes to Nintendo

    @ehnoah

    You're missing the serial number for your Switch in the spreadsheet.

    OP's post tells it all. I literally had my phone out and juggled two switches on my lap looking at only the serials. The employees were kinda freaking out, but I don't really care what they think. They didn't know what I was doing, and to be perfectly frank it's none of their business. What I was doing might be odd, but certainly not Illegal. I told one of them it was for a "friend" and i told him he only wanted some serial numbers. They asked me if I wanted games. I'm like NO. It's fw=3.0.0 and my "friend" is happy. I'm my friend.
