Latest News: Nintendo has finally disallowed older firmware Switches to go online... Update to 3.0.0 as long as you can. ------------ To get rid of the update nag: Set 188.8.131.52 as your primary DNS in the settings Complete power off the console (hold power button > Power Options > Power Off) Turn back on Warning: Spoilers inside! Like in the "old Wii U days" where we had an active and ever so blooming thread with Homebrew, Discussion, Suggestions, Drama, Trolls and more I'd love to see something like this for the Switch again. This is the reason for this thread. I'll try and update this post with useful information as much as I can and you guys can help doing so! If something new arises from the hacking community simply post it in here and, if possible, mention me so I'll see it instantly. I can then easily update this post to reflect the newest and hottest Switch news. Of course, inspired by @filfat and a huge thanks for the Wii U thread he made which sadly over the past few months went more and more inactive.
