    While rare, it is still possible to find unpatched systems, and it is still possible to find patched systems on 4.1.0. Always check the serial before making a purchase.

    So please, just to confirm. I've sourced an XAJ7 device which ismyswitchpatched says is definitely unpatched.

    1) Even if its been updated to the current latest firmware version (as of today), am I still good to go and mod it with a jig and sending the atmosphere payload?
    2) Does AutoRMC work on all of these, including on latest firmware? To save me having to use jig every time

    1. As long it is unpatched you can always use the fusee gelee exploit as it is a hardware bug. For the first time to enter RCM mode you would need a jig.
    2. Yes, autorcm would remove the needs of a jig every time it cold boot.

    that's great, thank you. assuming the process for fusee gelee is the same process, or near enough as the atmosphere videos I've seen a bit of - that's great, thanks I'll try and get it bought :)

    I can 100% confirm that the units with serial XAW1008106 are indeed patched consoles. (They fall under possibly patched on here but they are definitely patched)

    Because I bought 4 just yesterday and tested them all and they were all patched ones. (I was just really hoping at least one wasn't)

    It's very likely unpatched.

    so i traded my deff patched system for a unpatched system, i made a paper clip jig and can get the console to NOT power on screen with vol up+ power button, i bought a ihome brand usb c to usb female standard cable adapter, so i can hook my cell phone to the switch. cell has rekado installed but it doesnt do anything when hookes to the switch in rcm

    Wait, Nintendo is directly selling refurbed and unpatched units?

    Yes, but it's a gamble, and odds are you will receive a patched system. Getting your Switch this way is not recommended.
