    Are hackers more focused on creating homebrew for unpatched Switches than hacking patched Switches?

    I gues on earth.
    Nothing will be released until mariko (pretty much). It's still a waiting game.

    I see. This will give me an idea when it MIGHT be released at least. Waiting with no timeline is excruciating.

    I read in gematsu that Nikkei stated that a smaller switch will be released on the latter half of 2019? Is that the Mariko unit?

    You should be able to run homebrew soon provided your FW is below 6.2. No ETA for full hax.

    Good chance. That could also be separate and were just gonna get a surprise hardware update.

    If your switch is on 4.1 then that's golden and do no update.

    Currently for ipatched units the pegaswitch exploit has been updated, the lower it is though the better

    Maybe, or maybe they cancelled mariko and replaced it with a new one. We'll find out when it's out.

    I mean, it'll probably be hacked eventually, but for now keep it as low as possible or see if you can get a fusee gelee moddable one

    Sell your current switch and other consoles, get any job for a few months and buy an exploitable one off eBay

    Thank you for the advice. However, if selling the thing is not an option, is 6 months a realistic timeline for them?

    I’d say yes, but keep mind that it is highly speculative.

    There is not time scale, once mariko is realised and no way to run xploits on the new switch’s then it may be realised. No one is going to burn the xploit for new switches at the moment!
    4.0 and patched your lucky, stay there!
    My patched switches came out factory on 5.X but maybe hope, so went on eBay and bought a tablet only that was exploitable.

    I have a patched switch on 4.1.0, but I have the supernag update notification :( So I can't use Pegaswitch or probably anything that comes out in the future...
    If you're below 6.2.0 and don't have the supernag you should be able to run homebrew with Pegaswitch already.

    With a patched switch you want it as low as possible

    It's a patched Switch, so ChoiDujourNX doesn't work without RCM injection.
