Are revised (unhackable) switch units in the wild yet?

    So today I purchased a brand new switch from bestbuy (HAC001) and after a few hours of testing, I couldn't launch a custom firmware.

    First, side by side with my 2-month old switch the jig would work without a hitch in the old model but refused to work on the new one. After about an hour of trial and error (paperclip, tin foil, etc) finally I got the switch into what seemed to be RCM with the jig (after bending the pins a bit).

    Now, getting the computer to recognize it has been hit or miss. When I load the payload into tegrarcm nothing happens or I get a "usb device ..." message in the command window.

    I've reinstalled all relevant drivers, formatted the sd card and started over, used a different card, used hekate and older versions of SXOS, tried via a different PC, tried via an android phone and with a different cable. None of which have worked.

    Given this, is it safe to assume this model is currently unhackable or are the revised models not yet for sale?

    I gues on earth.
    There are ipatched units, which are still hackable, but not via RCM (IIRC). The Mariko units are yet to be seen.

    Is there something to look out for when buying a new switch to make sure yours is currently exploitable?

    Mariko units are probably on hold until some exploit comes up so Nintendo can patch it on their new consoles. Until then, i doubt they will release the completely patched units (and therefore no exploits will release too)

    Yes, refer to the serial thread that is in one of these switch sub forums. That will help guide you, though most best buy retail chains have patched units in my area (socal).

    For those who have a switch in hand and are wondering if its patched, here's how you check -
