    hi there,
    My sx pro will take 5-10 days to arrive.
    I just got my switch and i want to hack it to play some mario games via emulator.

    Can anyone please guide me if this is possible?

    First, I would modify your serial number so it doesn't show the whole sequence. Instead match the format I posted below.

    Taken from the Tl;DR section of this thread: XAJ70043X not safe to buy, probably patched

    If you want to know if its patched, follow this guide. If it is indeed patched, I would recommend swapping it out for an exploitable unit as there is no ETA on when we will have a workaround for patched units.

    i have already ordered sx pro, and it takes 5-10 days to arrive. i have 15 days to return the nintendo switch. Should i return it or wait for sx pro?

    The only definitive way to test if its patched is by checking whether the exploit works or not. You can take your chance at waiting to see if its patched once its too late or risk experimenting now before the SX Pro comes in; your choice.

    :rofl2::rofl2::rofl2:

    No "jigsaw" required, just a "jig". You can even use a paperclip, a piece of wire, or I've even done it with a bent staple.

    But yeah, go by the serial number, if it's patched, don't even bother trying, return it and try to find one that's exploitable.

    If your switch is patched it's poinless anyway
