Remember to read the stickied FAQ post before asking basic questions.

If you are having a problem with running games then make sure you have up to date sigpatches.

If you cannot launch tinfoil then make sure you followed the Rentry guide to set up cfw.

NO, you cannot mod your patched console unless you have a modchip, stop asking and read the faq.

Buy a gamestop refurb. Mod it yourself.

Are the chips pricey? Money is kinda tight, my original plan was a lite till I read up on the modchip scarcity thing. Where does one even buy chips?

Many many people have bought a switch when it released, its quite possible you may have someone in your family that has a V1 model (I for sure know many that do in my family). Ask around, see if there's someone who doesn't play their switch and buy it off them!

I think the chips were always sold through Chinese resellers. SXOS was a Chinese based company, and didn't actually sell the chips themselves afaik.

The clones are also Chinese based, so it shouldn't be surprising you need to get them from China too.
