    Hello! My hackable switch broke and I got a new Nintendo Switch for cheap on ebay. The switch works perfectly but when I tried to start up CFW on it, it wouldn't boot. I looked at the serial number and realized it was patched. does anyone know for close we are to patched/Mariko Homebrew?

    (also, are Mariko switches and patched switches the same thing??)

    If it isn't on 4.1 or lower, then your only option for now is to install a TX modchip. A software exploit for your Switch is unlikely to happen anytime soon, if ever.

    Ipatched systems and Mariko systems are not the same thing, but both require a TX modchip for the time being (unless it's a patched system on 4.1).

    Atmosphere already fully supports patched consoles, they're pretty much identical to unpatched consoles.

    The only entryway to CFW is the sxos core/lite hardmods.

    There's Erista, and Mariko.
    V1 Switch, both patched and unpatched are Erista.
    V2 Switch and Switch Lite are Mariko.

    The names are the codenames for the Tegra X1 and Tegra X1+, which are the main SoC in the Switch.

    To answer your overall question, the only solution for V1 Patched units, V2 Switch, and Switch Lite's are either the SX Core for regular Switch, and SX Lite for Switch Lite.

    What I find amusing is
    Given that
    1) mariko units can only run through an SX chip
    2) atmosphere is working on mariko support

    So does this mean atmosphere is working hard trying to find support for units they know contain SX mod chips???? :P
    Or possibly Sciresm is nearing a breakthough.

    It supports patched units with the SX Core. Go into the SX bootloader, payloads, and run hekate and then load atmosphere.

    It does NOT support Mariko units. So V2 and lite users have to wait.

    No. Since the ONLY way to run code on patched V1, V2, and Switch Lite models is to use the SX Core/Lite.

    SX would, dunno about ReiNX.
    However, do note, them supporting patched consoles does not mean you can run them on patched consoles, you still need some means of running.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    patched systems are identical to launch systems except they either use xUSB instead of USB2 in RCM or replace ipatch 3 with a fix for the RCM bug.
    Whereas Mariko is a whole new SoC with new/different hardware and all that fun stuff.

    This question was already answered for you but you didn't bother to read it the first time.

    Unpatched console can run every CFW
    Ipatched console with fw 4.1.0 can run every CFW (Deja Vu exploit)
    Ipatched console with SX CORE can run every CFW (AMS, SX OS)
    Mariko console with SX CORE/LITE can only run SX OS atm.
    AMS will support mariko in future. (Still need modchip like SX CORE)

    I think I've managed to order an SX Core and hopefully it is currently en route to my location. Hard to tell, having to import from China and all. The language barrier is a real bitch.

    In any case, I sure hope Atmosphere and the related tools get updated to work on Mariko units. Would much rather use a community-driven, FOSS solution than closed source OS from God only knows where.
