    I just got a XAW1009 console with firmware 4.1.0. Is my console hackable? Thanks!

    Haha. Lucky you. I also have a XAW10091 and it’s patched. I tried the paper lip trick, not sure the SX Pro would make any difference.

    Hello to that amazing community!

    I am in a pretty strange situation. I am looking for a used Switch because new ones are not hackable. (BTW you guys suggest me to buy a brand new one and wait "forever" for to be hacked?)

    So I have found one and I asked the seller about its serial number and he said: XAJ700141....

    What about that one? I have never seen a 70014... You guys know that it is hackable? I know it is below than 7004 but as I said I have never seen that kind of a number and I am a bit suspicious. Thank you in advance!

    0014 is lower than 0040, simple as that. It's safe.

    Yeah as it seen, it is lower. I just wanted to make sure because I live in a country where the original game prices are INSANELY expensive so an unhackable Switch will be nothing for me. Thank you sir for clarification!

    I have one more silly question. So lets say I buy used Switch and its serial number is safe to hack, but previous unmodded owner updated the firmware to 6.2.0

    What should we expect from this situation? Is it still hackable?

    You basically can't use SX OS on it, at least not on firmware 6.2

    Can I use ReiNX or Atmosphere?
    Or can I downgrade? (I assume I can't. Because it would be downloaded and applied from Nintendo servers directly)

    Both ReiNX and Atmosphere support 6.2. And you can downgrade but since that console most likely updated to 6.2 online meaning fuses were burnt, then you will not have sleep mode because the console performs a fuse check during warmboot. If there are more fuses burnt than the firmware, the Switch will refuse to wake up.

    So if ReiNX and Atmosphere support it there is no need to downgrade from 6.2 then. Thank you much for info!

    Most likely patched but there is always a chance its vulnerable to Fusee Gelee.

    If the Switch cannot be hacked, you cannot dump the NAND as you need to hack it to backup the NAND in the first place.
