    Hey guys i'm a noob at the jailbreaking stuff regarding the Switch and i would love your help and please take it easy on me. So i heard you need a certain serial number to mod the Switch and mine starts with XAW70021 can this be modded using the SX Pro ? If not how long will it take and are there are any other mods even soft mods that i can use at the moment? Thanks^^

    Taking things a step further, if you read the TL;DR section from the thread the user above posted, you will find that:

    XAW70019X and above definitely patched

    At this point, you can modify your Switch for it to be hackable. All you will need to do is replace the entire motherboard of the unhackable Switch with the serial number of a Switch that is hackable. I would recommend watching this video on how to properly take apart your Switch:

    Lol simply changing the serial number would not magically make it modifiable. The serial number is for information only. It just tells you what kind of motherboard it has.
