Hi,

I followed the instructions to verify if my model is not patched (XAW1008), and it appears that i successfully pushed the payload IMG_0865.JPG (see the 0x7000 on my computer, and see QR code on the Switch - not shown in the attachment) But i also see something slightly different on the Switch, which is an "ERROR getting TSEC key.
IMG_0866.JPG
Is someone able to confirm that my unit is still compatible, before I make the purchase.

Try running the fusee gelee payload or hekate or something.

0x7000 does indicate that it should work. You could also try another SD card, make sure you are formatting to FAT32.

Hi guys,

I’ve been lucky to find a switch which begins with XAJ400020 and comes with firmware version 1.0 looking at your guide it’s seems I’m good to go my only question is about updates, do I need to update the firmware to play games like let’s go and use PKhex.
Would much prefer to stay on firmware 1.0 as I don’t use this switch for online play at all

is my console moddeble xaj7000878?
Read the first post... But yea it should as far as i saw

So I would buy the OS immediatly but i have a patched version of the console as far as I could say from my Serial #, I will find it out as soon as my jig will come. Will this thread be deleted if the team fixed the issue or will it be edited?

We will cross that bridge when we get there. For now, this thread is as accurate as I can make it with the information I have.

hi:

Apparently my version is possible to be modified, as it is not possible. Serial XAW10098xxxxxx

I Checked with "TegraRcmSmash" and it shows me: 0x0000, but the screen still in black in RCM

Someone can help me?

0X0000 >> patched
0X7000 >> not patched (hackable)

for those who are eagerly waiting for the new hack but have nothing on the switch, go get Hollow Knight. Its like $15~ on eShop and will keep you busy for the next couple of weeks

I've just bought a Switch, and found today that switches can be hacked for custom firmware. Sadly i didnt knew that previously and now i have a patched switch ( XAJ400636...)
Will this ones ever get a working exploit? Thinking about returning it now :-/

So the exploit wont come faster if you ask... If they have news to say they will bring it on. You are free to go and sell your current switch and get a older one. I will wait and pass time with some hollow knight and super smash!

Luckily i pass today in another store of same brand, and they had an unpatched one, and they accept the swap. Ufff. Now i guess i can unlock it. Need to read, to dont get banned.

So the first post says:

XAW400110 (and lower) - Not Patched
XAW400120 (and above) - Possibly patched
XAW400300 (and above) - Patched

Is this possibly a typo? Another site I saw says XAW4001300 and above is patched... mine is XAW40019xx and I’m trying to figure out whether to return it or not.
