XAW7 series have a cutoff serial of 18. 17 and below have been confirmed working so your 15 should work in theory but it never hurts to double check.

Not sure if the motherboard revision for the patched systems are marked. I've seen HAC-CPU-01, HAC-CPU-10, and HAC-CPU-20. The only changes were around the usb-c port (Improves stability with third party devices and power input?). Regardless, it would be nice to know the motherboard serial of the patched systems if they even changed it, that is.

Finally! After my girlfriend going to 4 different stores and having the store manager & sales people check their stock of at least 15 to 20 consoles per store, she finally was able to get a Switch with a valid S/N :bow:

This is no joke! This things are getting harder to find...:ohnoes: So if you peeps have the mula go ahead and jump on the ban wagon before they are all gone at $299.99 because we all know that is a matter of time before the scalpers start selling this things at a much higher price...:evil:

Are you serious!!! The only units seem to be patch are the Asian ones. Did you buy in the US a non patched one?

California is one of the first states to get new stock since the bay area is a major shipping port.
(note: I'm saying this based on that user's socal nickname)

My unit starts with XAW700111. I think I should be good. SX Pro is arriving on Monday.

I understand but he was checking serials without knowing what is patched or not. I don’t think anyone know at this point. Also, XAW1001 are mostly the gray units.

If you successfully injected the biskeydump payload, than you actually have run the fusee gelee exploit because it's a prerequisite to get a payload injected and executed.

You back up your system via hekate, which is a payload.
Launching a payload in itself won't harm your system in any way (unless it's a payload which its sole purpose is to harm your system, which isn't the case here).
Just launch hekate and if it launches, congrats! After you see if it booted just turn off your device and you're done.
OK RCM Detected so success!

I think he knows about roughly about it but not the exact cut off point of serial number.
Because he got a patched console and returned it and tried to find a new one.
You can refer to this post, https://gbatemp.net/threads/firmware-status.495078/page-12#post-8142802

Fusée Gelée works: Didn't try but at 4.1 should be good right?

So I bought a Switch, it's at 4.1. Is this any good? What can I do with it? Ideally to lose access to all the digital titles I've bought for the moment, I'd want to be emulating PS1 at least to justify it. I'd need to do it through my Android phone though.The console also wants to update in order to use my mSD card (I already cleared any ready to install updates via the guide). I haven't connected it to any network yet. Any advice would be appreciated.

Remove SD card.
Boot the console in RCM.
Send biskeydump payload.
If it works, you have an unpatched unit.
If it does not work, you have a patched unit.

By that you mean turn it on with the volume buttons held down, and the second line refers to that .apk right? Surely if it's on 4.1 it's early enough to not be patched? Guy said he'd had that unit for a good while now. Right now I'm more curious about what I could do with it on 4.1 or should I upgrade, use it legit, and maybe get a Vita for emulation, what does everyone think? What can a 4.1 switch potentially do Homebrew wise?

Edit: I read this; https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.imore.com/nintendo-switch-jailbreak-everything-you-need-know?amp It's pretty recent, so is it correct in saying 4.1 is no good for emulators until CFW comes out? I might update in that case, enjoy my digital titles and then CFW the unit in a few months? What do people think?

Dead serious! The answer to your question. Yes! The first Switch I bought was patched and I bought it at a Target store in the US N.Hollywood,CA area to be exact...

I wrote a list of S/N from this site that are known to be none patched ones and handed the list to my girlfriend so she could compare the S/N on the boxes before purchasing a Switch.

I was surprised that the employees of all the stores she visited were willing to go out of there way to check their stock and look for a specific S/N...:D

OK. Got that. Thanks
