    I think this question may be over asked but is it possible to hack an RCM Patched switch without a modchip yet? e.g. an SD exploit?

    It's not, there's hardly been any new exploits found
    It's looking like modchips will be the way to go on RCM patched units

    Hmmm. Hopefully some developer messes up enough with their game like how ninjahax was made.

    There is not nor may there ever be a way to hack patched consoles without a modchip. Just get an unpatched unit and forget the wait.

    What SciresM have said it's most likely never going to happen. But who knows?

    The difference is pretty much the same since the number of exploits shared between the two is the same past firmware 7.X

    Not really, because I believe mariko is immune to caffine, even if on the lowest possible firmware, 7.0.0

    I disagree because the number of users who even have a console between firmware 4.0 to 7.0 is insignificant even possibly zero.

    Well, some switches still come on 6.0.0 to 7.0.1 as stock because the Big N isn't worried

    Based on what information? Those are extremely old firmware versions so I highly doubt modern consoles come shipped with those vulnerable ones.

    A question : is a non patched switch (the really old model) on a 11.0.1 firmware can be hacked with the RCM method ?
    thanks

    why do people keep asking the same questions, like when you create a new topic it pulls up similar posts, do they not bother checking and just fire away the same question for the millionth time.

    For unpatched Switches any FW now and in the future will be hackable.

    Nobody is even trying to find a new exploit right now.

    Because there isnt one, not without a modchip.

    And if nintendo revise the switch to block modchips i doubt anyone will release a mod chip as xecuter were the only ones, and afterwards i doubt anyone has the balls.
