    Did you have the server blocked using the DNS before this tutorial was made? Make sure you take that off your internet settings before doing this, I guess.

    Will this break the warrenty of the device?
    I'm already on 2.0.1 and I don't want to update any further for the time being without voiding it.

    I'm on 2.0 and I've sent in my dock and yesterday I sent in joycons for service. So no it doesn't although if you have a problem with the console itself and send it it it will most likely come back updated.

    I don't see your switch connecting to fiddler, are you sure you setup the proxy information on the switch? If it's connecting to fiddler you will see the activity in the left window.

    No matter what i do it doesnt connect to Fiddler. Tried it for like 6 times and even tried using another pc but no luck. Not sure what the problem is. I set the port to 8888 and looked up for my ip on whatismyid. I guess im just really unlucky.

    You seem to be using your external wan IP address, you need to use the internal lan address of the PC you are trying to connect to. It will most like be similar to (192.168.0.###).

    Oh i genuinely feel so dumb right now. The example ip in the guide looked exactly like my external IP so i thought it was that one. Thank you.

    Am I screwed if my Switch already has the update nag when trying to enter the e-shop? I've tried hard resetting the console, but it still shows the update nag.

    All I know is if you are on 2.0 you can just block the url and reboot the console. I know nothing of being on higher firmwares.

    Fiddler is a great tool. I use it a lot. Is there a way to turn on decryption to monitor the https traffic with the Switch? I don't know how to load the fiddler certificate into the console. Thanks.

    Fiddler supports it, but you would need the Switch's certificates and I see no way of doing this yet..

    either open it right after booting the switch or enable airplane mode, reboot and disable airplane mode whenever you want to go into the eshop. still works fine for me on 2.0 with zelda and every other game fully updated

    I assumed since you are posting in a tutorial thread on how to setup fiddler to block the system update servers that you were actually blocking them. If you are not planning on using fiddler then why are you posting here?

    These are the servers you need to block:
    http://sun.hac.lp1.d4c.nintendo.net:443 - System Update Server/Nag
    http://beach.hac.lp1.eshop.nintendo.net:443 - System Update Nag/Eshop lockout

    As long as they are blocked you can update games and enter eshop at any time without any problem.
