Why would anybody want to tamper with a Nintendo Switch console? Nobody really knows the answer to that question. The only thing you can be sure of is that your Nintendo Switch can be completely destroyed if you really wanted to. However, what exactly is the meaning behind a “Tampered Nintendo Switch”?
A Nintendo Switch is a very simple gaming console. It does not have any kind of media storage or flash memory. It actually just has a basic form factor of a standard gamepad. This type of Nintendo Switch console is great for people who don’t like complicated controls or game-like menus. If you are someone who enjoys simple controls and a nice sleek form factor then this console is perfect for you.
However, this simplicity also means that it can be damaged quite easily.
For example, if you leave your Nintendo Switch outside in the sun for too long without taking it inside to protect it then it could experience what is known as “battery cell dead spot”. This means that the switch will lose power and then stop working. This can happen even if you aren’t at home and don’t have direct access to the switch. What is the meaning of a tampered Nintendo Switch then?
This particular issue can occur if your Nintendo Switch has been left in a closed car trunk too long. What is the meaning of a tampered Nintendo Switch then? Well, it means that if your Nintendo Switch had an accident in a closed car trunk then some thieves could potentially gain access to flash memory on the switch. This would mean that they could potentially make counterfeit Nintendo Switches or other gaming consoles. So, what do you have to do about this?
Well, the first thing is that you must ensure that your Nintendo Switch is properly locked out of a car trunk before it goes into the car.
To do this, simply open the trunk and look for a lock with a dead bolt. You should also use a lock picking tool to pick the lock if need be. Then, once you have the lock picked, attach the tailgate using a cable tie. You should also ensure that there are no signs of damage to the flash memory in the console itself.
