Hi all, I just got an unpatched Switch (XAW100703xxxxx) but it is runninf 9.0 fw........so I believe I need to wait to hack it, correct?
Is it worth downgrading the fw from 9.0?
In the meantime I ordered an RCM Jig and I have all the cables and adapters ready.
I see that there are a few methods I could use to hack the switch but which is the best one that runs smoothly?

Thank you,
Cali

Just wait until your jig comes in so you dont accidentally mess up your pins by using some methods on here. like that your cfw may also be updated so just wait it out wont be much longer.

If you want to can ensure it is unpatched by sending it the hekate payload. If you boot into hekate then you'll know it's actually unpatched.
Currently, hekate and atmosphere do not support 9.0.0, but they should be updated in the next few days to add support for it.
From there I would recommend setting up emuMMC if you want to keep your sysMMC clean and online.

I second this. Use a specially designed jig for it. I've seen too many people break their pins on the console by using paperclips

Thank you for the response, I appreciate it.
Can I trouble you to point me in the direction of the guide to hack my switch the way you recommend with emuMMC or are you saying add emuMMC after I hack with any method?

This guide is still kinda beta, but it's the only one I've seen cover everything including emuMMC.

If you run into any problems, you'll probably be better off asking for help in the AtlasNX discord server:

what would be the disadvantages in a potential purchase of a used Unpatched Switch (low serial# verified only) that has already been updated to 9.0?

so the fuses would be burned to 9.0 so won't be able to boot below 9.0 via emuNAND or sysNAND(obviously)

as of now we seem to have support but there are unknowns about being hardstuck on 9.0?

Right now there's no reason you'd want to downgrade. Now maybe one day another hack comes that gives you permanent CFW but only works on lower firmwares sorta like Deja Vu but it only works on 4.1 or lower right now, would be the only reason to ever want to. But I just use sleep and AutoRCM and I have to send the payload to my Switch maybe once every couple of months.
