    So, I read the 8.1 was a no go. I just bought a NS and it came with a FW 8.0.1, should I give my hopes up and update or wait?

    It has nothing to do with the firmware revision. You have to find out if you're ipatched or not. If you are, you're out of luck. If you're not then you can hack all the way up to most current firmware (9.0 at the time of this post).

    for ipatched switches it has everything to do with what firmware u r on. But yeah right now ur out of luck and the lower the fw the better in the long run on ipatched units. Ipatched switches can be hacked though. But I feel like 8.0.1 is too high for the hack to work but I could be wrong I cannot remember what the hack was called.

    It's Déjà Vu and was patched out on 8.0.0 so yeah if it's ipatched and that high your out of luck. But if u want any hope in the future the lower the better. What we have now is probably not what we will end with in terms of hacks on the switch in the future.

    8.0.1 will eventually be able to run basic homebrew, which should allow you to downgrade to 7.0.1 and eventually use Deja Vu. You’re going to be waiting for a looooooong time though.

    To add to what @ZachyCatGames said; if you do plan to wait it out on 8.0.1 for an eventual downgrade then make sure you keep your switch offline.

    Otherwise you'll end up with the 'supernag' which forces you to update before doing anything internet related. Which would lock you out of connecting to Pegaswitch.

    He was talking about Mariko here, but this also probably applies to patched/unpatched Erista consoles too (unless it involves Mariko specific code somehow)

    That's awesome, I thought that only switches on 7.0.1 and lower would be able to ever run homebrew. This is great news!

    But you said the firmware doesn't matter and this is simply wrong.

    don't you seem to forgot fuse a little fast here? you cant boot into lower firmware with burnt fuse if you dont have a custom bootloader
    and Deja Vu will need to be able to boot into a normal environment to function, why do you think some people keep their patched unit on low firmware? (since we could downgrade to any firmware we want?)

    tldr : no you cant downgrade to enable some warmboot exploit

    Yea, I could see how you would think that. And normally it is that way, but for whatever reason when they went from 7.0 to 8.0 they didn’t up the fuse count. Some people thought they were trying to make up for burning a bunch of fuses early on, but then they proceeded to burn fuses in both 8.1 and 9.0... so idk

    We aren't really sure of anything. The safest thing is do is to wait. However, if these modchips do come out and really are what is being talked about, then firmware shouldn't matter.
