Got a Switch Light yesterday on it's release date here in Europe (20.09.2019). It came with FW 8.0.1

Of course, i know that there's no hacking option yet. Latest FW is 9.0.0 right? Is it smart to use the eshop or play Links Awakening (cartridge version), or sould i just put it on the shelf?

You're sure right. I also pre-ordered the Pokemon limited edition for collectors purpose ( https://www.amazon.de/Nintendo-Switch-Lite-Limited-grau/dp/B07V29SJ7C/ ) , this thing will be released on 08. November. So i'll guess it comes with FW 9.0.0 at least.

P.S.: Will this limited edition also be released in the US? ... Nevermind, just checked Amazon.com, and yes, it's also coming out in the US, on the same date.

Why? Nintendo is a master of OS vulnerabilities.
Nintendo has done a very good job of securing things this time around. The typical way we used to exploit consoles using game save exploits has been defeated by ASLR.

The only reason we got RCM was because of a vulnerability with the Tegra chip, that's NVidia's fault and not Nintendo's. We were lucky we got PegaSwitch on older firmwares.

But ReSwitched has said they don't have an "ace up their sleeve" for this. There are no spare exploits being kept. We'll be lucky if the Switch Lite ever gets hacked. If I had to guess I'd say we might get basic homebrew eventually, but never full-blown CFW.

Unless you bought the Switch to sit in the shelf, update it. Chances are that any future exploit will require higher than 8.1, though there is always a risk.

I am a peep working on the lite, and I'm on my way, no reliable way in yet but rest assured someone is on it. Nintendo has out done themselves so it'll be a bit but nothing is "unhackable ;) stay low (on fw) and stay safe :P

It's true till they find a new exploit. But the latter might neve happen, or it can happen tomorrow. We shall see.
