    Thing is OP of thread said on page 77 “The closest is XAJ40049, which is unpatched. This should be your reference."
    So will Xaj400492 be unpatch too?

    All we can say it's maybe patched. You can get lucky and it's unpatched or you are not.
    If you don't want to gamble on it, get one in the Safe region.

    Anyone having any luck finding a hackable switch in Canada? I hear best buy had a bunch, checked every bestbuy in my city and ordered one from bestbuy.ca. None of them were for sure safe

    Someone just brought a Switch to me, with Serial number XAJ1003xxxx, and it was a patched unit. Bought from a brick and mortar store. I didn't ask for the stock firmware version, but even if I did, they didn't seem like they'd remember.

    I know you don't want to but you should move the tl dr to the top, then the FAQ, then the template, no one can read and are so damn lazy

    Imo the tutorial on checking patched units is bad. No one will bother checking their units if steps list something like "insert your jig" "boot into RCM" without properly explaining what it means AND what it looks like. There is link for entering a "Recovery Mode" but how would a new comer make a connection to "RCM". If anything it should be abbreviated "RM", or written as "Recovery Mode(RCM)".

    Best if you can include a video tutorial on how to check if the switch is patched or not from youtube or something. With different methods of entering into RCM. Many would not bother buying a jig just to check if their unit is patched or not.

    Then it's their loss. :rolleyes: Buying a jig or even a payload injector like ns-atmosphere (which comes with its own jig) is a good investment for someone who is trying to get a Switch to hack it. Even if the first Switch he gets is patched, he'll keep looking for an unpatched unit. Worse case scenario if he never finds an unpatched Switch... he's out a few bucks.

    Thank you everyone who posted about their switch code, i was able to purchase a switch from a store very easy ( literally first checked was this serial ) .

    If you use this site to check serials, please post yours if you buy one, it helps other people.

    @Draxzelex @Adran_Marit Impartially opinion about which CFW use to just play backups and dlcs(with piracy mode)? I have read some topic but there are so diversity of opinions...(Between SX OS, ReiNx and Atmosphere)
