    I just came from a shop where there were at least 2 Switches with serial suggesting old firmware. There were few that could be 3.0.0 too. Just look closely and you will find somewhere.

    Serial: XAJ700103
    Serial on device matches serial on box: Yes
    Region: EUR
    Firmware: 2.3.0
    Color option: Neon (red-blue)
    Store: Toys R Us Germany
    Was a bundle (if yes, which): No
    Purchase date: 13.01.2018

    For everyone else in Germany thinking about purchasing one: mediamarkt didn't have any unbundled with a version below or equal 3.0.0 (didn't check the bundles). Gamestop appeared not to have any unbundled switches but I didn't ask. Toys R Us should have old consoles. Thanks to alepman90 for the tip :)
    The staff of toys r us was a bit rude. I can't really recommend them.

    I dont mind the 0.2 my first Switch was 1.0.0 (SN already on sheet).
    Think I'll just use this to play legit games till Switchax is out.

    It seems that all NA/US models with ~XAW10025X+ seem to be 3.0.1+

    How many digits count for knowing the firmware?
    Yesterday, I bought a switch (gray, EUR) from a big store with
    serial XAJ400156#####. ¿Is similar to XAJ400155? ¿This mean that
    my switch have 2.3.0?
    I didn't open yet.

    P.D. My second Switch
    Serial: xaj400267XXXXX
    Serial on device matches serial on box: Yes
    Region: EUR
    Firmware: 3.0.1
    Color option: Neon
    Store: Alcampo
    Was a bundle (if yes, which): No
    Purchase date: November-December? It was a gift.

    it has no seal, you might as well open it and check it (dont connect to internet and reset/return it if its higher than 3.0) its what ive done, my 3rd switch just arrived.

    Hi,

    Can anyone confirm that XAJ 70011428018 is 2.3? From the OP I think it is but want to be sure!

    Appreciate any advice!

    Nobody can promise this to you! You have to check it.
    We can't possibly know at which point an assembly line got an update and which line your switch was produced at.

    Yep thats range of 2.3 but as mentation its not 100 % sure because we do not know when assembly line had updated firms. Mine got that range but absolutely sure info about that cannot given withouth checking fw and my country Finland you cannot sent it back when you bought it on store directly. They are like kinder suprises but 99 pros i assume xaj range is correct :) Maybe you can order it on postal service but then you cannot be sure sended console is right serial. I know some eu countries let you check you fw on the system its the best way to be sure.
