    So the firmware installed on the switch doesn’t matter if it the serial is within the green region?

    Seeing some 8.0.1 firmware used switches. Thanks for any answer.

    If it's unpatched (green), then you can hack the console on any firmware.

    So I am planning to buy a used Switch to get CFW. I contacted the seller and asked for the serial number. As a noob with this stuff, I was wondering if:

    1. XAW7000656 is unpatched?
    2. Buying a used Switch that was used for at lwast a year is worh it?

    1) Yes, it’s unpatched.
    2) Your decision.

    Im buying one right now. Worst comes to worst, I return it.

    Is there any tool where I can input the serial number and see if it can be hacked or not?

    I ask because of two questions:

    1: Serial number collection and privacy reasons
    2: This site can be turned into a app where you take a of the bar code (which is the serial number) and it checks against the database. Much faster than inputing it manually.

    If you‘re concerned about the privacy read the first post here and check yourself. Also you don’t need to enter the last 4 digits of the serial number.

    XAW10105983399 8.1.0.. what's the chance that this is not patch ? I ordered the RCM jig, but very curious what's my chance. Does it matter if its on 8.1.0 ?

    Hell
    It’s possibly patched, if it’s not patched the firmware doesn’t matter much, if it is patched firmware is very important and you’re likely never going to be able to hack that console

    So the only way to confirm is to do the injection through rcm ?

    You are sure it is XKJ4 and not XAJ4?

    Okay, so here's the idea with my Switch (which I picked up last December)

    The SN is: XAW1008619xxxx
    Current firmware: 8.1.0 (if that matters; I've been reading that it..kinda doesn't?)

    I'm afraid so.
    I also haven't found another one on the internet whose SN starts with XKJ400099xxxx :-(
