    Hey guys first post, but been a forum reader for years.

    If i buy one switch from a local retailer is it possible to be on 3.0.0?

    I am also curious about this.

    I would imagine some of the older bundles might have a lower firmware however i have no which ones

    They're on 4.0. I went to an a Toys R Us a couple days (the place is a ghost town) ago to pick mine up, and still wound up with a 4.0 console. I don't think you'll find a retail store selling one lower than that, currently. Any store that's been unable to sell their 3.0 stock in the US by now is likely out of business at this point. That's my guess. I'd look around for consoles on Craigslist and Ebay to try and nab one from somebody who hasn't turned it on since 3.0 or lower.

    If I remember correctly, someone actually posted a thread where they were able to find a Spla2n 2 bundle online. Those come with 3.0 if I'm not mistaken.

    Xecuter said they can't patch it and I have no problem soldering chip. Might as well update so i can play recent games.
