    unless you know how to develop hacks and such, there's not much benefit at this time to staying on that firmware.

    So the general consensus from the developers of these Switch exploits is that they won't be releasing them until AFTER Nintendo patches it. But since Nintendo is now disallowing connecting online on older firmwares, this would potentially create a huge problem with these exploits if they require use of the Switch Browser or any other online connectivity and were released for an older firmware after it was patched.

    Yes, if you're on 1.0, you should update if you want a possible exploit. 1.0 doesn't officially have internet capabilities.

    It depends how you look at it anything under 3.0 (latest as of this post) doesnt have sdxc micro sd support which sucks, what size will nand dumps be for the switch?

    So we have a couple of different quads of arm cores and cuda cores to work with, AND we have a kernel dump. Didn't the 3ds' soundhax utilize the GPU in some way with the payload? Since we have the kernel, could that be possible for the switch?

    Hey everyone,

    I bought a new Switch system on Amazon.ca when it was on regular price and i think it come with the 1.0.0 Firmware ...
    i dont have any game because I wait for Mario's games to open it.

    it's a good idea to update my system on the 3.0.0 Firmware or stay on the 1.0.0 Firmware ?
    It's possible to update is console with a game like olders Nintendo system ?

    not much reason to stay on 1.0.0 at this time unless you really want to develop stuff.
