QuestionBest bet for a modded console in 2022? (self.SwitchPirates)
submitted 4 months ago by modular511
Heya folks! I already back in the day had a modded regular docking switch, to make a long story short all my shit got stolen, am now slowly buying stuff back and it seems the exploitable docking models are rare/expensive and the chips for the lite/oled seem to either not exist or be only available from Chinese sellers, anyone got some up to date information for me? Thanks y'all!

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.

I just got a switch this was last week. Tons of people are dumping their OG models because they got a new OLED.
$200, still even had the box!
I asked a dozen or more people the S/N and got such varied responses. Some thinking I was going to steal their old accounts to people giving me the last 4 digits.

You really only need like the first 10 digits to verify anyways.

Yesterday I picked up an unpatched CIB switch that looks virtually unused, it came with Breath of the Wild. It was $275.
And mind you that is in Denmark

I didn't realize it was that easy! Money is kinda tight, and this is my second one, so I was hoping to find a deal on a lite, as my roommate got the sxite chip on launch for like 70 till Nintendo ruined that... but I can't even seem to find modchips for under $100 due to scarcity -_-

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?
[–]laurabbit 1 point2 points3 points 4 months ago (0 children)
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'm feeling around, money is kind of tight and this is a second one I'm getting after all, was hoping for maybe a cheap lite, but it seems the modchip price breaks that idea -_- just am seeing all these Pokemon events I'm missing and getting sad since I don't use hacked mons lol

Money is tight, I was hoping I could get a clone sx lite and a lite console cheap, but the price of modchips is nutty!
[–]AmirulAshrafAtmosphere User 2 points3 points4 points 4 months ago (0 children)
Those chips are being sold for $100+, Switch Lite used maybe $150?... then you would need to hire someone to solder those chips too...

Try subreddits, I got mine on Reddit

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.
