Has there been any progress on hacking the redbox switches? I will probably be getting one...

What's a redbox Switch?

Regardless, unpatched Switch systems are recommended. You should check the serial for an unpatched Switch before making any purchases.
  1. If you get a patched system on 4.1.0, it's fully hackable as long as you don't update and haven't connected it to the internet before.
  2. Patched systems on 5.0.0-7.0.1 might be hackable someday in the distant future as long as they're never connected to the internet and never updated.
  3. Patcheds systems on 8.0.0 and higher will probably never be hackable.

The revised version of switches, they came about a week ago. Apparently they have a new Tegra processor...

Don't expect hax for mariko in the forseeable future, if you want hax try and get an unpatched Switch, or at a push get a patched one and keep it as low firmware as you can.

By "redbox", he probably means the new Mariko units (the ones with a better battery and screen), they come in a mostly red box, thus the name.
They don't have a better battery nor do they have a better screen. Simply a chipset revision which is where the extra battery life comes from. The current switch models will not get a better screen, if that was going to happen it would have happened with the current revision. The better screen would also increase the price of the switch. Nintendo will launch a "pro" model that includes the newer screens.

Both the screen and battery are the same :unsure:

I may have screwed up here (on the baterry especially lol, my bad), but I definitely recall seeing improvements in the screens when it comes to brightness and color accuracy

    I went to auction at a mom/pops video game store few months ago that was closing, and bought 11 slims for $200, 1 was DOA but 10 work fine. so hella deal. Already rgh3'ed 8 of them. But most younger kids don't even want anymore, unless it plays stupid "fortnight", or newer shit.
