don't give the full serial number.
only the beginning should be enough (like we did on Wii)

you never know what could be done to your console/account if you publicly provide your full serial.
the first 8 digits should do as a serial can be the same in the first seven digits andhave a diffrent firmware
39 CAN/US Gray --- --- XAW1001XXXXXXX 2.2.0 Duhasst0
40 CAN/US Gray --- --- XAW1001XXXXXXX 2.3.0 Wii8461

but with eight or more digits you can tell a diffrence
36 CAN/US Gray Target (BM) 8/19/2017 XAW100193XXXXX 2.3.0 zes
37 CAN/US Gray BestBuy (BM) 8/17/2017 XAW100196XXXXX 2.3.0 SirByte
38 CAN/US Gray --- --- XAW1001XXXXXXX 2.2.0 Patodox

or
27 CAN/US Gray Gamestop (BM) 8/18/2017 XAW100084XXXXX 1.0.0 gameboy
28 US Neon --- 4/29/2017 XAW1000873XXXX 2.0.0 rikipy

Looks like wololo.net published a story on obtaining the lower firmware switchs and linked back to the google doc I created which has a link back to this thread. Also Essometer and CTCaer got mentioned by name! We famous y'all !!!

Please continue to add to the sheet so we can get at-least to 100.

Just bought one from Amazon UK. The release of yet another No No update makes me really nervous. Will post my serial number and firmware as soon as I get it.

So as we all know a exploit that existed till Firmware version 3.0 has been fixed in 3.01. While where is probably no
Switch with 3.0.1 sold in stores to this day (17.08.2017), I think it would be a good idea to start a thread where people
can post the serial number and informations about their switch consoles to help people buy hackable switches in the future.

Assembly Line:
Batch Number:
Region:
Firmware:
System Color:
Was a bundle (if yes, which):

If you know with which Firmware your switch came out of the box, please fill in those fields.


According to CTCear, here are some information about the Switch serial numbers:



For example: XAJ70002712345

X: Product of NX line
A: Switch Hardware
J70: Assembly line
The following numbers are probably a consecutive number. So the Switch in the example is Switch number 2712345. To determine the
Firmware to serial correlation, please post the number rounded to the hundred thousands. In this example you would post 2.7 million in the
"Batch Number" field.

Where to look for the serial before you buy a Switch: There is a hole on the underside of the box where a sticker with the serial is placed.
The spoiler has a pic with the location.

Xplic1T created a spreadsheet that contains all information that we gathered in this thread in more detail then the OP.

Feel free to edit the spreadsheet with more informations

There is no way to know if a person want to buy the box like in Amazon or any retail stores.
