    I don't care about playing online but I do care about updating my xci games. Anyway to update them after cdn ban. I do see people putting updates online and I can download them but how would I install them. And last question is will the future games require a switch hardware update because then I will be in real trouble. Thanks

    you cant update XCI's best bet is to ditch xci's and use NSP's which can be Game Update and DLC

    you're confused. Updating xci is quite literally the same as updating nsp.

    Take the update nsp file and install them using any other method to install the nap files.

    Why recommend him sx os, over something like ReiNX with tinfoil? Nothing against sx is, but one is free.

    Thank you for your help. Now last question. Will future hardware updates will be needed to play latest games in the future.

    Yes they will require a higher firmware, it you go to the games section of the forum you'll find a thread with games and their supported fw. Fw v 6.0 is coming soon and I think any Games coming out starting December will require this firmware.

    But will it be possible to update the system firmware with a nps or xci game where the higher firmware is on?

    You may be able to have someone on 6.x decrypt the title and use that decrypted copy on a lower firmware, assuming that the title does not rely on actual new functionality shipped in 6.x, but it is much less painful to go up to the latest firmware once CFW for said firmware is available.

    Because he clearly mentioned wanting updates to his xci files. Only one cfw in the world can play xci files.
