While §1 was altered in 1979 to include female heirs the rule about legitimate heirs wasn't which would mean that it's still valid.
But doesn't the part of the preface concerning the legitimate male heirs refer to the provisions of the Act of Succession as it was originally enacted in 1810?

Vi CARL [...] göre veterligt: att, sedan Riksens Ständer enhälligt antagit och fastställt den successionsordning, varefter den högborne furstes, Svea rikes utkorade kronprins, hans kungl. höghet prins JOHAN BAPTIST JULII manliga bröstarvingar skola äga rätt till den svenska tronen, samt Sveriges rikes styrelse tillträda, och denna grundlag till Vårt nådiga gillande blivit överlämnad,

We CARL [...] after the unanimous acceptance and confirmation by the Estates of the Realm of the Act of Succession according to which the male heirs begotten by His Noble-Born Highness, the elected Crown Prince of Sweden, His Royal Highness Prince JOHAN BAPTIST JULIUS shall have the right to the throne of Sweden and to accede to the government of Sweden,
If it is interpreted as referring to the current provisions of the Act of Succession, then it is contradicting §1 by stating that only male heirs have the right to the throne.

Thanks, I hadn't realized that.
