    Hey guys,

    I've bought Arms for the switch and was on firmware version 2.0.0.
    The game prompted me that i was REQUIRED to update the switch before i can play, so i did and it updated my switch to 2.1.0.

    Well ofcourse since the exploit works on 2.3.0 i updated my system to that firmware instead.
    (Tip: update it to 2.3.0 before 2.4.0 comes out)

    Turning your internet off will NOT work because the game includes the update and not the switch.

    Every Arms copy comes with a update so it's useless to ask.

    You must be a god or a dumbass because only one of those would make such a definitive statement about "Every Arms copy".

    Because Nintendo would definitely go through the effort to ship copies of Arms with the 2.1.0 update, and copies of Arms without the 2.1.0 update. That totally makes sense.

    unless it was an idea they came up with part way through making the initial physical copys of the game and they halfway through started putting the update chips into copys produced after that point, then it would be somewhat hit and miss and region, country and store wouldn't matter, time would, but whos to say that store received the hypothetical new and old version of the game cart

    Wherever you want me, baby.
    How often do you check bugs? And is it a fulfilling hobby? Just wanted to ask before I dive into such an exhilarating hobby.

    They're not going to shut down a production run just to add a system update if it isn't actually needed for the game. (And if it *is* needed and they forgot to add it, they'd have to throw out all of the incorrect copies, or include a note saying you have to update it via the Internet first.)

    Also, "update chips". That's not how this works.

    To which "exploit" are you referring?

    tbh, it seems there cracking down harder on homebrew especially with the 3ds banwave, it wouldn't shock me if they did do something that dumb, and I just said save chip to get the point across, unless you have taken it apart, it likely is just a partition on the memory chip or it could possibly be a separate storage chip, who knows atm

    no idea why ya wouldn't, tbh, for me I'll just keep updating till homebrew actually exists, all pegaswitch does for us now is not much unless your helping to get homebrew possible on the system

    Agreed. PegaSwitch isn't even actually a "Userland" exploit. It only allows you to toy with memory and execute functions of the WebKit that are cached (from my understanding). This is no reason not to update.

    In the Netherlands, but it won`t really matter since every copy would be the same.
    It would be strange if the producers made different versions (except Japanese i guess)

    That would be PegaSwitch, it's not for for us `users` though but still important.
