    Do not expect much consistency from a project that will always be in a grey area.

    No need to start a useless or homo/transphobic debate.

    I should also add that if you update to 5.1 with the intention of returning to 3.0.1, you will lose the ability to play cartridges on firmwares below 4.0

    @Nah3DS It might be worth updating OP to let users know if they have a Switch with a 4.1 firmware and their serial number is XAJ40043XXXXXX or higher that it is no longer vulnerable to Fusee Gelee aka the bootrom exploit so it is highly recommended for these users to not update in order to keep their Switches as hackable as possible

    Yes Draxzelex, I was waiting for confirmation on a way to differentiate these new units.

    So XAJ4004 is the limit. What about XAW? (iirc those are the american ones)

    That's the issue, we only have reports so far from users in China meaning they bought Japanese Switch units. Nobody else has reported any Switch units with the exploit patched with other serial numbers or in regions outside Asia, at the very least. I'll keep monitoring the situation myself but I just thought it might be a good idea to get the word out especially in the pinned threads. I don't know how well the serial numbers compare region to region, but it may be identified in a similar fashion so everyone, not just those in Asia, can take extra caution when buying a new Switch or updating regardless of their region.

    Thanks for the help Draxzelex.
    I did a quick update to the OP. I believe Deja Vu still works on these units... let me know if the wording is ok to you.

    Looking good. Also, this is somewhat related and is totally up to you but you can swap out using the word softmod when you're referring to Deja Vu and say something such as loading a webpage or similar to the way you load the exploit for the PS4. Again, you don't have to but it might be a nice distinction for some people to understand better the differences between the exploits. Regardless, everything is looking good!

    Bought one too days ago, just arrived:
    Firmware: 4.0.1
    Serial: XAJ70031

    I still do not have an USB C cable nor TX, so I can't say if I can launch the payload, but since it's on 4.0.1 should be good.

    Not sure how accurate that is. That serial has been in the wild since at least March

    Edit:

    I have a XAJ4004XXXXXXX unit that I have no problem getting into RCM and running Hekate 3.2

    Yeah it turns out that you need an XAJX40043 for it to be patched. Sorry I didn't update the original post but the information is still being gathered and this is the preliminary data based on the user reports.

    I have XAJX40044, I hope this isn't an elaborate scheme to get me to post my full serial # :ph34r:

    Hi guys. I just purchased a 2nd Switch and my S/N starts with XAW100857XXXXX
    FW: 4.1.0

    Since I have my other Switch with TX OS. I figured I'll sit tight before installing any CFW or setup the new Switch.

    So I used TegraRcmGUI 2.0 to see if the software detected the Switch and it did. It says "RCM DETECTED" but no text on the Switch Screen. I don't have an SD Card installed in the Switch. I just took it out of the box to check the OFW under "Maintnance Mode" and to see if TegraRcmGUI would detect it...

    Does this mean that the Switch is patch free and be able to handle CFW on it whenever I'm ready to install?

    I'm pretty sure the Switch is not patched because of the RCM being detected by TegraRcmGUI, but I rather get a second opinion...
    Thx in Adv.

    So I think the patches ones don't have a problem getting to recovery mode (rcm) but they are patched so you can't send payloads. So the way to test is to try and push a payload to see if it goes through. I tested mine by checking my bis keys
