    wouldn’t any switch in a splatoon 2 bundle be vulnerable?

    Gonna need to start being aware of manufacture date. Knew I shouldn’t had waited.

      This happens literally every single time big vulnerabilities like this are discovered & publicly exploited. PSP, PS3, XBOX360, Wii, WiiU etc. all had hardware revions and or factory set patches for this same exact type of thing.

    You could always re-import a unit. The switch in Brasil, my country, sit on shelves for a LOT of time, you could still find launch models if you search enough. Maybe Mexico also has this “problem”, it would be easier for north americans import from then.

      I just bought mine from prime day as well, not arrived yet though.

      Does the exploit work on your switch and if it doesn’t s your switch one of these models/serials?

      HAC-S-JXE-C3 models, with serial IDs starting with XAJ7004XXXXXX

    • aaaa

      is it unhackable and if so, is it one of these models?

      Hi, does fusée gelée work on your switch and what model/firmware do you have?

      • Qai

        I mean what model/serial do you have?

        I bought mine from the prime deal amazon.ca as well, it’s arriving monday…. probably means they are restocking in the mean time which means new patched switches :(, i’m considering cancelling and going for the ebay deal.
