The excel spreadsheet scared the heck out of me since someone reported that xaw1007xxxx was patched. Luckily, mine was fine.

I guess no point in checking whether XAW100864 is hackable right?
If you would have read the OP, it says, that your switch is probably patched. But definitely not every switch with that serial is patched according to collected data. Try it out, it's worth it. Actually, then you know for sure if should stay on <=4.1.0 for deja vu (once it released), as you need deja vu, if fusee-gelee is not an option. Good luck, and remember to tell us whether it was patched or not (for statistics).

Hey my buddy got a switch his serial is

XAW100895

the reason I'm asking is because this number is past the number range on patched switches so I have no idea if it's patched or not

According to the OP, its patched. Even if its past the range of patched Switches, there's no way it would miraculously go back to being unpatched; that's not how the production lines operate.

No, according to OP it's a maybe. There have been XAW1009 units not patched. 1008 is grey area.

While the XAW1008 series are a grey area, his serial number is extremely close to the XAW1009 series. I've seen plenty of lower serial numbers be patched so if his turns out to be unpatched, I'll be a monkey's uncle. However I think the risk is too much to take given everything I just said. I'd only test it if there was a guarantee I could return, swap, or get my money back from it.

Thanks for the response and yeah I hope his switch is unpatched since it was given as a gift. It came on firmware 4.1.0 but he had to update to link his nnid. I guess we'll find out if his switch is hackable way into the future

You should double check your serial, that looks wrong. But if it came with 3.0.1, it is unpatched.

What are the chances to get a f.g. unpatched switch online in germany? Maybe better find one at offline stores? Any advice?
