5.0.2 out of the box? Is it a used unit? Pretty Scary that 5.0.2 firmware is out.

The serial doesn't match. There are two possibilties:

1. @HeldDerZeit typed a zero too much.
2. The Switch was updated and then returned to the shop

So judging by comments, if I wanna get a Switch before they release a hardware revision, it's cool to just get one brand new currently rather than hunting around for a preowned low version?

Yeah, if you get a switch now it should be the original hw revision. But get one as soon as possible as you never know when they will change it.

I picked up a new Switch today, serial is XAW100526***** . is this one that would still have the tegra exploit? Also, as an update, it came with 4.0.1 firmware
Yes, there is no way that Nintendo releases a patched hardware revison that quickly. Even firmware update can take one to two month before they arrive in the shops.

Thanks! I figured that the new revised models wouldn't be hitting until late May or June, but I just wanted to make sure, and you all are much more knowledgeable about those things than I lol.

Quickly? Didn't Kate say that the bootrom exploits were disclosed to nVidia months ago? How long do they need to push out a new hardware revision?

Joe, do you mind taking a look at the back of your system and say what code it says (Not serial) but a code that starts with "Hac" And not the hac-001 code. Systems that end with "c0" have motherboards with the code "hac-cpu-01". Systems with the code ending in "c1" have the motherboard with code "hac-cpu-10". If yours ends in "c2" it may indicate a newer revision inside. Possibly the mariko version.

Please note that I specifically asked for one they had sitting for a bit longer and they gave me the one that belonged to a box that was sitting on display.
This is something you can probably do for a while in the future to still get older models.
