    I was just wondering whether or not anybody is working on a way to hack a switch that's patched without using a mod chip or physically modding it.

    I am sure people are working on it, but unless you had a really really low firmware you are stuck with that on option at the moment.

    The firmware for the hardware was dumped so there is hope for the future to have a third party mod chip, but you would still need the hardware.

    Plus I wouldnt get it right now with all the trouble Executor is having.

    You should not expect anything to happen anytime soon, if ever. If you want to hack your Switch, either get a model that's easily hackable or get a modchip.

    Just wanted to chime in and say you can find easily hackable ones all over the internet :). Just search low serial switch or something of the likes. Probably the preferable way of doing it too, since having a low serial switch means you can use Atmosphere atm.

    Did mine. I was patched but had a low firmware and didn't update. Everything gets hacked eventually, you just have to wait.

    eBay has them, but if you go for one specifically labeled as I'm unpatched or low serial, expect to pay extra. If you simply contact a bunch of sellers asking about the serial number, you can get it cheaper.

    This, and a site called mercari have been very useful for me finding cheaper V1 Switches.

    Nobody is publicly working on it. Just get an unpatched unit or a console with a firmware of <4.1

    Did you get to find one at a reasonable price? When I searched, old used ones were more expensive than a brand new one.....

    Those keys mean pretty much nothing.
    Mariko’s key encryption key is equivalent to the tsec root key on Erista, both are used to derive a master kek (which is the same between Erista and Mariko) that’s then used to derive a master key, which is then used to derive a shit ton of other keys (pk21 key, NCA keys, etc).
    Mariko’s boot encryption key is used to encrypt/decrypt package1 and bct.
