    I can still access the eshop and play online in v7. But I only stayed a few minutes because I fear that the update will download and install itself. Is it possible to block the auto download (or the auto installation) of the update 8 while still being able to download the games update and play online?

    in fact, tomorrow, I want to download the update smash and activate my game cuphead but I'm afraid that the update 8 downloads and installs itself :/

    Sorry I forget the name of the app, but you can reboot into it and download/delete the update data before your next boot into horizon. Someone else will respond with the name I'm sure.

    Any app that does any sort of real-time blocking would be recognized and cause a ban.

    Correct me if im wrong but i think even if there's a way to block system update, there's a good chance that the smash update would require fw 8.0 unless you are using cfw.
