I have a Mariko (xkw) v2 switch and i always hack everything i get and i don't knew switches could be patched. I looked a long time for ways to hack it and also modchips but there's never enough information.
So what i really want to ask is do the hwfly v3 or v4 is worth it on a Mariko with the newest updates? Do the v3 ( and v4) work with the updates etc so i could buy one (maybe there's other new modchips tho 😶) i hope you have good arguments and specs on it to tell me 😊

I am fairly certain the "version numbers" of these modchips are mostly just minor board revisions or the different form factors for different console models.

Aside from the different shapes needed to fit in the different versions of the console most of it is just marketing.

The chips all do the same thing when installed, afaik

Will it work if I don't update it?
Any version of the hwfly should work on Mariko. The only real reason to update the chips is if you have an Oled model because older chips might ship with an outdated bootloader that can damage Oled hardware.

Edit: Depending on the chip version it should be possible to update it with a debug cable anyway without a programmer. The OG SX chips used to ship with debug cables but I'm unsure if the hwfly chips do.

You can upgrade hwfly core v4 with USB cable (I did it while the chip was soldered on the switch).

Instructions here:
github -> hwfly-nx/firmware

    But that's a thing with social media; it creates an illusion of proximity, when in truth everyone is overwhelmed with all the information and all the social demands in the platforms

    And a lot of people are addicted to the phone, checking social media or talking with someone. Some exercise in the gym while being glued to the phone, not even activity takes them away from it

    And I was like that too, until I left social media. Now sometimes I'm grabbing my phone, opening the browser and thinking: I've seen everything I wanted to see, I don't have a reason to use the phone. And I put it down

    I didn't make case, I made my manoeuver to park the car. But I caught them off-guard, the one ahead hit the brakes and had to jump from the scooter. For a second I thought he would go against the car. They were trying to race through a gap they perceived, thinking I was going to always drive forward
