    I was just wondering since I had a switch lite, but didn’t want to risk damaging it with a botched mod chip install.

    The Switch Lite and the new switch model (HAC-001-01) are unlikely to ever support CFW. Units that are on firmware 8.0.1 or lower will have the ability to run homebrew in the long run. 8.1.0 and above are screwed, probably forever. The early european Switch Lite units came with 8.0.1.

    SciresM said no, so most likely - no. He reimplemented most of the HOS systems and there's no vulns.
    Grab a chip while they're still avaliable and pay someone to install it for you.

    It'll probably be possible in the future. They said the same thing about the ps3 slims / super slim systems and look what happened to those

    Reiterating from another thread:

    Nobody is working on finding exploits for the Switch -- it's mostly pointless since the secure monitor definitely has no security vulnerabilities and the kernel almost certainly has none either at this point.

    I expect we'll hit end of life without another softmod.

    But by the time someone like that is released, we will probably already have the next system in our hands. Practically, we won't see another exploit let alone a softmod before end of life.

    I wonder how long we are before end of life. It's been 4 years, I'm sure at least 2-3 more years but after they release BOTW 2 and Metroid Prime 4 I could see them switching focus to Switch 2 or whatever the next Nintendo console will be.
