    I'd trust the console number more than the box number, even though they they should match

    While things like EmuNAND or other solutions to play games that require a higher fw will certainly released at one point, that doesn’t mean that it will be directly after a cfw has been released. In my understanding, cfw means one thing: Being able to have control over the switch at or right after boot. Anything else still has to be developed. How fast or slow that will be I don’t know. In my opinion, cfw early for 1.0.0 is that developers can get a head start befor cfw for later fw will be released.

    About the serial on box and console, yes, they match in almost all cases. But if the Switch was removed from packaging, do you know for sure that it wasn’t updated outside?

    Thanks for clearing that up. Yes, it was updated unfortunately, but I've found another sealed so I'll be picking that up today (hopefully). And thank you for all your help! If I have to stick with my 4.1 and wait it out, that's fine! I'm just excited to see what's in store for the rest of the year!

    Found another with XAW100137. Any idea if that falls under 1.0.0 or 2.1.0?

    Adding another datapoint: XAW400023, has firmware 3.0.0.

    Figured that may be useful as it's a little close to the 3.0.1 range.

    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?

    Damn my switch comes with a XAK prefix which has no available data. So scared to turn it on.

    Going to hold on to it for a while before I decide to open or return. I think this unit is made in Korea which one user report the serial on page 24.

    Amazon adds serial # on your order details as soon as dispatched. You can try to look there.

    Got a crazy good deal on a switch today. To any Canadians here Shoppers Drug Mart is having seniors day (I was not carded but you could always guilt a grandparent or hobo or any 55+ person) today which is 20% off plus + 10 dollar gift card if you spend $50 dollars or more. Put the switch to 361.18 CAD after taxes and enviro fees, I then spent the 10 dollar gift card on chips.
    Got a low firm too considering nobody buys games system at a drug store.
    XAW100250***** which seems to be a 3.XX pretty good tbh.

    edit: Was a Gray console, no bundle. It's also staying in the closet not getting turned on until haxz come.

    Serial on device matches serial on box: The serial was hidden. No more cut through holes on the box.
    Region: Asia
    Firmware:4.1.0
    Color option:Neon
    Store: Online store, official authorized dealer unit from Taiwan
    Was a bundle (if yes, which):No
    Purchase date:24.4.2018

    Had some trouble looking up serial numbers with XAK prefix. This is probably made in Korea.
    Korea launched the Switch on Dec 1st which was the same launch day in Taiwan.
    XAK probably only has firmware 4.1.0 and upward since launch.

    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
