    It is borderline, it can be patched, or unpatched, there is no definitive answer until you push a payload and see if it work or not.

    My launch switch has the latest FW. Is it hackable or did I miss my window?

    You can check your serial number in this thread here. But if it's a launch switch I assume you bought it before June 2018. Then it's 100% hackable.

    Hello
    I have a XAJ40047 console on system v9.0.0 - I know that the serial means it may be hackable but because it's up to date does that mean it's not hackable?

    Ok, so I got 0x7000 - not patched.
    Which homebrew is minimally intrusive (kind of like haxchii was) as I just want to be able to edit my SP saves at this moment in time

    Push a payload if it failed it is patched.

    So, how are the odds of getting an unpatched, hackable Switch in stores (Germany) right now? I haven't chacked the serials as of yet, just asking.

    Anyone have a clue about the switches that were a part of the Smash Ultimate bundle?

    Hi
    Will it be ok to buy an up to date console but a hackable one ? For example running 9.0.0 fw

    Many thanks for your support

    Hell
    Yup. Firmware doesn’t matter very much on Fusee Gelee vulnerable consoles.

    Hey everyone, I picked up a Switch with serial XAJ4002196xxxx. According to this topic and other info online this is unpatched. Good news so far!

    But before I get carried away can I confirm it's okay to update sysnand to 9.0 before creating emunand? With an unpatched device there is no need to stay on a lower FW, right?

    Thanks

    If you have personally verified it's unpatched by running something like Hekate, then yes, it is safe to update your unpatched Switch to 9.0.1 (if you don't care about future exploits).

    If you care about future exploits and want to retain the ability to downgrade, you need to install AutoRCM before/during the update process, which will cause your Switch to autoboot RCM and prevent fuses from being burnt.

    Thanks, and this might be a noob question but what's the easiest way to see the firmware I'm on? lol. System update menu just says an update is available.

    edit: It's on 9.0 anyway, it's only saying update available due to 9.01 dropping.

    When did Nintendo start patching the Switches? Just noticed on the back of mine it says Made In China 2019. I thought from seeing random comments online the RCM entry point had been patched in 2018?
