    At work so I can’t fill out everything that well, but I bought a refurbished switch from Nintendo’s site on June 14th. Serial started with XAW9 and it was unpatched.

    Are any new switches on 4.1? Or do they come with newer firmware?

    Hello, my serial is Xaj7005032####
    According to the first post & to ismyswitchpatched, the console is definitely patched, but is it 100 % or there may be a chance it would be unpatched ??

    It's pretty much a 100% chance. If the Switch is on 4.1.0, you can still hack it as long as you don't update it.

    Then you never entered RCM.

    It's almost certainly patched.

    It's almost certainly patched.

    Use the ranges in the first post. XAW400071, assuming it is typed correctly with those three zeroes, would probably be unpatched. Serials between XAW40000000000 - XAW40011000000 are safe to buy.

    XAW10074736842 is probably unpatched.

    Some new Switch systems still come on 4.1.0, but it's rare. Some new Switch systems even come unpatched, but that's also rare. Check the serial numbers before making any purchases and try to get an unpatched one above all else.

    You can check by injecting a payload, but based on your serial number, your Switch has a 100% chance of being patched.
    1. If your Switch is on 4.1.0, you can hack it today using the web browser. Do not update it.
    2. If your Switch is on 5.0.0-7.0.1, it will be hackable at some point in the far future using the web browser. If I were you, I'd sell it and get an unpatched one. If you are going to keep it, do not update it.
    3. If your Switch is on 8.0.0 or higher, it might never be hackable, and I would sell it.

    It's unlikely, but it's possible. Always check the serial number before making a purchase.

    If it's on 4.1.0, it's still hackable. Don't connect it to the internet.

    Eventually, it should be hackable as long as you don't connect to the internet between now and then. However, it's likely going to be awhile. I'd recommend selling the Switch and getting an unpatched one.

    Depending on the game, you might be required to update your system to be able to play it. Check what the system requirement is before you buy it.
