    On the spreadsheet, all XAW7002 systems are patched. Regardless, OP should definitely check it if he has access to the Switch.

    Hmm, was probably someone here in the thread who reported an unpatched one.

    It's also worth noting that the serial provided by the OP (XAW7002367XXXX) is higher than any of the patched XAW7002 systems on the spreadsheet, so it's pretty likely that it's patched.

    Just got a switch refurbished from Nintendo, its unpatched. If you really want one and don't want to get a random one, get the Nintendo Switch - Mario Red + Mario Red Joy-Con that console was the Mario Odyssey bundle released on December 2017 (Way before the roll out of the patched consoles on July 2018). All of this consoles comes with a XAW9XXXXXX serial number, if that's the case follow the guide on how to know FOR SURE.

    Refurbished consoles have a chance of being patched. XAW9XXXXXX systems are a gamble. You got lucky.

    I have someone wanting to sell me a XAJ70015671946 for 350 USD including breath of the wild, odyssey and mario kart. Is this switch hackable and is it a good deal? A new one without any games costs 300 dollars but those are all patched. Is this worth it?

    It's very likely unpatched, so I'd consider it a very good deal.

    It's from December 2017, so the only thing im worried about is it being scratched and stuff like that. I'm going to look at it tomorrow

    Good chance it is unpatched, since it is from December 2017, Patched unit came out around June 2018.

    So it's worth it for that price? Including those games?

    You can get it cheaper, if you only want the system, if your intention is to hack the system those two games you can sell them and get some money back. $350 is alright but depends if you really wants those two games or not, you could just set up CFW and pirate the games (Don't asks where to get games here on the forum).

    I think it would be hard to find something cheaper in Norway tbh. Unless i start thinking about shipping from out of country, and that gets stupid expensive with import charges and such.
    I think i'm going to take the deal, if the switch seems okay when i look it over tomorrow.

    I'm completely new to hacking the switch though, could you point me in the right direction? Is this a good resource? switch.homebrew.guide/

    Hello,

    You wrote:

    "Serials beginning with XAW1:
    Serials between XAW10000000000 - XAW10074000000 are safe to buy"

    Even if this is updated to the latest 8.0 revisions? My friend is selling his (XAW1002----), I know he played Smash and stuff so it is updated completely to play online...

    Can you please confirm if it's still safe to buy? Sorry I'm not too familiar with this stuff.

    Thank you,

    Yes, the firmware doesn’t matter.

    Hi, I have an opportunity to buy a console with XAJ7000760. This page says definitely patched, but ismyswitchpatched.com says its definitely not patched??

    edit : Nevermind, I'm an idiot - 3 zeros not 2 - so yes falls within the green group

    Just bought a NEW Switch Red/Blue from Gamestop with a serial of XAW1006 unpatched! Came with firmware 4.1.0. I thought that wasn't supposed to be possible anymore. I went in expecting to get an unhackable console and BOOM! I can't believe it. SX Pro arrives Monday!
