    The real question at this point is, if you updated to 3.0.1 is there any point in staying on it and not updating to 3.0.2?

    Yeah it was definitely patched but it sounds like 3.0.1 might still have a chance.

    3.0.1 still has a chance. While the bug that was patched in 3.0.1 was definitely the biggest, there are many other bugs in 3.0.1, with people trying to develop bigger exploits for it

    This patch follows a recent white hat submission. They are bringing down an iron fist on any holes.

    In general, I don't think it matters. 3.0.1 is a waste of time as most of the scene has already splintered on <3.0.0, where the scene will be, or over, where the scene won't be, as the tools and entryways won't be the same nor will it be anywhere as easy as <3.0.0.

    The early exploit of smhax is going to pigeonhole the Switch into a PS3-like scene, and the white hat submissions will make anything after that a pointless pursuit as the number of compromised systems available will be difficult to track or even find, and no one will want to develop entirely new tools/points of entry on ever changing workings.

    Actually a lot of people still missed out because the warning didn't come out in time except for "do not update" the fact that 3.0.0 had a major exploit wasn't known until a few weeks after.

    But 3.0.0 and 3.0.1 will be very different, and, again, few will want to work on 3.0.1's bugs when they already have <3.0.0 access. Anything that comes from 3.0.1 will potentially be massively delayed if it ever materializes.

    Did you not read? i was talking about the warning for the exploit found in 3.0.0, people always tell you not to update but some will take that risk if nothing big is announced.

    I do read. Don't be condescending. It's unbecoming. And dickish.

    And yes, they said don't update to 3.01 and they gave the warning months previously, stating that they found something big in 3.00.

    Another update, another trivial change to the system. *Yawn*
    I hardly see "general improvements to system stability" being all that useful.

    Yes, I really yawned when I typed "yawn" in text :rolleyes:
    I suppose you'll be asking if I laugh out loud whenever I use the :lol: emoticon.
