    Will we always need to use a computer to launch homebrew, or will it, at some point, be completely launched on the switch(just like the 3ds)?

    With that TX chip we might be able to launch the HBL at boot/from the home menu like on the 3DS.

    Im considering buying a 3.0 switch after selling my 4.0.1 as I can only afford one.

    My question is when I get it,
    1) Is it a good idea to still use the 3.0 switch to play zelda botw, and pokken while waiting for homebrew and even afterwords?
    2) How would that work?
    3) Would i have to be disconnected from the internet at all times. Sorry just bought one recently.

    1) Would be no issue
    2) Put the cardridge in and start the game (just make sure the game need a fw <=3.0.0
    3)Yes the most simple way is just dont conect to www

    A team making an "unfixable" exploit for switch. They made modchips for Xbox and Xbox 360 in the past.

    If I initialize my my console and it's on a low firmware, will it keep the original low firmware because I don't know how it would work. A friend wanted to know and buy a Switch on the firmware he wants. He wants to get another Switch on 3.0.0 or below. He got a spare Switch but doesn't know what firmware it's on and wants to find out but if it's not on the right firmware, he's going to sell it.

    It stays on the firmware as long as you don't connect it to the internet/update with a game cartridge.

    OK thanks and yeah he wasn't going to go online with it but he only wanted to find out the firmware on it however he still wanted to make sure he could initialize it keeping it on the same firmware if he was going to resell it if it's not the firmware he wants. It said when you initialize you go online to do so and he asked me for information on if it keeps the firmware or not and I didn't know.

    You don't have to go online to find out the firmware. If the serial number isn't already documented in the serial number topic then you can either go into recovery mode or setting up a profile when starting it for the first time while skipping the online option and then checking the system settings.

    We knew about the 2nd part but I never went into recovery mode on my Switchs so I didn't know how to do it from it. Plus I mentioned the serial number on the serial number thread and waiting to see if someone could help us find out before he turns it on since we didn't see it.

    Thanks. Yeah I figured out how to do it
    So my one with serial number Xaw10041770008 is at least 3.0.2? Well that stinks. Guess he'll be reselling it and the hunt for 3.0.0 or below continues.

    Sorry if this is the stupidest question in the universe, but is it best to purchase the TX modchip when it releases since my Switch is on 3.0.0?
