Android fans and Nintendo Switch owners may find it intriguing to learn that Android 10 has just been unofficially ported to the Switch. If desired, the LineageOS 17.1 version for Android 10 may now be easily installed on your Nintendo Switch system thanks to the SwitchRoot development team.
Installing this build requires a PC, a fast microSD card (formatted to FAT32), an RCM-capable Nintendo Switch, and a USB-C connection. If you currently have Android 8.1 Oreo loaded on your SD card, be careful to back up your data before downloading the Android 10 build since flashing this new ROM will destroy all of your data. If you use an Xbox controller, flash the ROM first, then the Google Apps package, the Alarm Disable ZIP, then the Xbox Joycon Layout ZIP.
