    Serials beginning with XAJ1:
    Serials between XAJ10000000000 - XAJ10020000000 are safe to buy
    Serials between XAJ10020000000 - XAJ10030000000 are possibly patched
    Serials above XAJ10030000000 are definitely patched

    Serials beginning with XAJ4:
    Serials between XAJ40000000000 - XAJ40046000000 are safe to buy
    Serials between XAJ40046000000 - XAJ40060000000 are possibly patched
    Serials above XAJ40060000000 are definitely patched

    Both are in the border line, 50% it is patched and 50% unpatched, more of a luck.

    Serials between XAW10000000000 - XAW10074000000 are safe to buy, so it's probably unpatched.

    I have a switch XAJ4005456XXXX
    I Bought a RCM Jig but can't boot into RCM Mode when checking serial it flagged with a warning that it may or may not be patched
    But from what I've heard and read is if patched it should still go into RCM Mode but not flash

    Correct, RCM is always possible, maybe try another jig if you have access to one.

    Make sure to push the jig all the way in, I tried three times with mine before I realised it wasn't in right.

    XAW100785 is probably unpatched.

    XAJ400545 is probably patched. If you can't launch RCM payloads while it's in RCM, then it's patched.

    Assuming you typed that serial number correctly, it's probably not on 1.0.0. If you meant XAJ7003, it's probably on 1.0.0. Regardless, it's probably unpatched.

    Describe step by step what you're doing to enter RCM and what happens. Remember that RCM looks almost identical to a powered off Switch, and to check if it's in RCM, you will probably need to use something like your computer.

    What happens if you unplug the Switch from your laptop and try again? You can plug it back into your laptop after you think you've entered RCM.

    Hi! How likely do you think might a Switch Diablo Eternal Collection limited edition be patched?

    Is my switch patched, XAJ7004009?, in the sheet this line says: 530 EUR Neon MediaMarkt Spain 23/11/18 XAJ7004005XXXX 4.1.0 Dominguti (the user), his is not patched and in the first post says:
    Serials between XAJ70000000000 - XAJ70040000000 are safe to buy
    Serials between XAJ70040000000 - XAJ70050000000 are possibly patched
    Dominguti is in the possibly patched zone.
    It's just luck?

    Ok, so even if your switch is patched, it still can go into rcm mode? And when your in rcm mode you can hack your switch and install homebrew? Sry if this is the wrong spot to ask it, but its a jungle out there. Thx ;)

    You can still enter RCM but you can't inject a payload. Therefore no CFW.
