    Patience is a virtue. Also, this is something that these people do as a hobby, for free, in their own spare time. Life just gets in the way sometimes.

    I understand this perfectly and appreciate their work. It's just that usually there is a calm before the storm. So I decided to ask...

    How do you know if you have a Mariko unit or not? If I buy a Switch now how would I know if it is Mariko or not if it has a 5.x firmware on it?

    Why does the OP say "TBD" for 5.x.x softmods? I was told such a thing was impossible or unlikely, so, shouldn't the OP be changed to "impossible"?

    Mariko units have not appeared yet so we do not know how to identify them. At the very least, they need a 5.X firmware.
    Deja Vu, the softmod that works up to 4.1, has not been released yet so there is reason to believe Nintendo has not patched it out in 5.X. However, the developers have not tested this nor any other softmods on 5.X so we cannot say for certain there are no softmods that can work for 5.X.

    Well, 4.x.x softmods haven't been released yet, and no one on the Switch hacking teams likely even have 5.x.x consoles, so I'm not even gonna bother holding my breath for that one. I don't see it being a thing for years IMO.
