    heyo, i'm not too sure if this has been asked before but i still wanna see if there's a shot at this

    so i have an rcm-patched switch (bought it right when the patched units were coming out, just my luck lol) on 7.0.1 firmware and so i've been making sure i don't update to 8.0.0. but the popup prompting me to update my system every time i try to start or resume a game is starting to really annoy me. is there any way i can get rid of the popup or will i just have to deal with it?

    Hmm. Some people have said booting to the Switch Recovery menu will remove it, but you will probably keep getting the prompt if you are connected to the internet.

    Yup, disable your internet connection, shut down the switch (not just sleep mode, all the way) then boot into maintenance mode (hold down both volume buttons after injecting cfw if you're using AutoRCM) then power down the system again. Boot up as usual and it will be gone. It will return though if you re-enable your internet connection without blocking access to the Nintendo servers.

    IIRC there is a supernag that some apps have that will still show the prompt even if you boot recovery mode to delete it like some people have suggested. But it's at least better than nothing.

    As for before it downloads the update, for people wants to use HBG shop, you can use iconignto to edit the serial # in your prodinfo.bin, this way you don't get bug about update, not sure if it work with unit that already downloaded the updated, Incognito with Google DNS seem to work fine. 90DNS also work fine.
