So i have a lunch switch on firmware 2.0
Id really like to keep 2.0 on it in case a cold boot drops one day.
So i was considering an emunand to utilize the 9.x firmware to play newer games while leaving the stock nand on 2.0 and untouched.
Now i recall a while ago 4.0 i think and now 9.0 also update the gamecard firmware which I would also like to prevent.
I did want to go with XSOS forn xci loading from a hdd in docked mode (as i only play that way) and i know xsos does this but I remember their wasnt a way to block gamecart updates witu XSOS.
Now if thats still the case i dont mind using atmosphere for the time being and maybe even doing a modchip.
But just wanted to get your thoughts as to what would be the best route to keep my 2.0 firmware and gamecart OG firmware but be able to boot to an alternate fw for new games.
Thanks guys
I don't see much point in keeping gamecart firmware low when it's so limited what games you'll be able to play on 2.0 anyway and realistically when are you ever going to use a lower FW? If coldboot drops you would continue using your emuNAND anyway, just launching it by a different method.

Yea that is also true. Which in that case i guess I could just go the xsos route. I just hate updating stuff if i cant flash back. But deff a route to consider

    I want a 120hz 4k tv but crazy how more expensive the 120hz over the 60hz are. Or even more crazy is the price of 8k's.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    No real point since movies are 30fps
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Not a big movie buff, more of a gamer tbh. And Series X is 120hz 8k ready, but yea only 120hz 4k games out right now, but thinking of in the future.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Mostly why you never see TV manufacturers going post 60hz
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I only watch tv when i goto bed, it puts me to sleep, and I have a nas drive filled w my fav shows so i can watch them in order, commercial free. I usually watch Married w Children, or South Park
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Stremio ruined my need for nas
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I stream from Nas to firestick, one on every tv, and use Kodi. I'm happy w it, plays everything. (I pirate/torrent shows/movies on pc, and put on nas)
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Kodi repost are still pretty popular
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    What the hell is Kodi reposts? what do you mean, or "Wut?" -xdqwerty
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Google them basically web crawlers to movie sites
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    oh you mean the 3rd party apps on Kodi, yea i know what you mean, yea there are still a few cool ones, in fact watched the new planet of the apes movie other night w wifey thru one, was good pic surprisingly, not a cam
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Damn, only $2.06 and free shipping. Gotta cost more for them to ship than $2.06
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I got my Dad a firestick for Xmas and showed him those 3rd party sites on Kodi, he loves it, all he watches anymore. He said he has got 3 letters from AT&T already about pirating, but he says f them, let them shut my internet off (He wants out of his AT&T contract anyways)
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    That's where stremio comes to play never got a letter about it
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I just use a VPN, even give him my login and password so can use it also, and he refuses, he's funny.
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I had to find and get him an old style flip phone even without text, cause thats what he wanted. No text, no internet, only phone calls. Old, old school.
