    all you can do is wait for another exploit or check if your switch is a
    Tegra bootROM exploit compatible device.

    It is 100% unpatched, first patched unit firmware is 4.1.0 I believe.

    Answer to that should be fairly obvious. If it's not patched, it'll be hackable. The patch is what stops the exploits working.

    Yes, there's a way to downgrade your Switch. Should you do it? Probably not. Booting into official firmware burns fuses depending one which firmware you are on. If you click HERE and head to the bottom of the page, it says that a retail switch will have 4 fuses burnt on Firmware 3.0.2.

    A 3.0.0 System only has 3 fuses burnt. I'm not an expert on the subject but I'm sure someone here could explain why that's a bad thing.

    I would recommend using "ChoiDuJourNX" Homebrew to update your firmware to 6.0.0 anyway once it's hacked. Why not have a later update if you can still use homebrew and hacks?

    Stop spreading lies, homebrew work on all available firmware on unit that is not patched.

    Your Switch is permanently hackable using the RCM exploit. No software update can change this, so your system version doesn't matter. You need to find a way to enter RCM before using homebrew. Personally, I prefer the paperclip method before installing AutoRCM, but it's a matter of personal preference.

    You are free to update your Switch if you like, but you will be unable to downgrade for future and more convenient exploits that target lower system versions. If you want to update without burning fuses so you can downgrade later, you can update using ChoiDujourNX, but this requires that you install AutoRCM and coldboot into RCM each time you power your system on.

    If you use homebrew on your Switch, you do risk being banned from online play.

    There is no permanent cfw, where you gotta run a payload everytime the system Coldboot, if you boot into official firmware with fuse count lower than what that firmware fuse count is you burn your fuse.

    You can update to 6.2.0 using choidujourNX but don't boot into ofw, only boot into cfw like reinx or Atmosphere or SX OS that has fuse protection. Booting a choidujourNX update firmware in ofw will burn your fuse.

    If you make a NAND backup before doing anything, you're unlikely to irreparably brick your Switch.

    If you have AutoRCM installed, you cannot boot stock OFW in a way that burns fuses.

    This is an untrue statement by an uninformed user. All current firmawares are hackable as long as you have an unpatched unit. In the past several months Nintendo has released switches that are ipatched. This means you can still get into RCM but you cant launch a firmware.

    So you have to check whether your switch is ipatched or not. If its ipatched you cant do any modding. If it's not then you're good to go

    If the Switch is older and not ipatched, it's permanently hackable. Now, that does not always mean that CFW will be compatible with the latest software versions (CFW is currently compatible with the latest software version, which is 6.2.0 as of this post), but the older Switch itself is forever vulnerable to the RCM exploit.

    Some of it is outdated but still very helpful. https://switch.hacks.guide/

    Edit: Actually yeah, pretty outdated. You're better off using google or youtube to find a more recent guide.
