No games even require 6.0.0 yet so there's no need to update
You didn't even answer the question

If you're eShop / online ban yes you can
But if you're cert banned you can't update online at all

There is a tool call chudor or something like that that you can use to update the system by copying the update files to the sdcard. That would be your only option if you're cert banned

there’s a few rumors floating around that version 6.0 is in the pipeline question is can you update if switch is banned

Once a game comes out with the 6.0 firmware on the cart, you can use that to update. Or when someone uploads a copy to a site like Xbins, you can use choidujournx to install it. So you can still update, you may just have to wait a little longer than those who aren't banned.

Yeah but can you get banned if you update through ChoiDujourNX without burning fuses and then go online?

How about updating games? When I check for updates for games I get a notice saying cannot connect to server. Yes my console is banned but I do have internet connection.

I would say it is highly unlikely Nintendo is checking fuse counts when you connect to their online service, but I also have absolutely nothing solid to base that on. If you're worried about it, don't do it.

Download the updates in NSP format from your source of choice (Google usually gets the job done for the determined yet smart) then install them using your title installer of choice (e.g. Tinfoil, Rommenu, DevMenu). Its how everyone has been updating their games offline.

Are you confirming that the updates for games are out there? I haven't checked, but I've recently been banned and haven't updated my games in a month or so

They are indeed out there, I myself updated Mariokart8 Deluxe with its respective update NSPs. Of course remember these files are not supposed to exist so of course tracking can them down is meant to be difficult.

On a side note, since you are banned, would you kindly submit a ban report here: https://gbatemp.net/threads/nintendo-switch-banning-hub-warning.508710/

Already been elevated to the superbanned state. Can I make it any worse if I update through ChoiDujourNX?

okay I know that this is an old thread but... my system is not allowing me to update so if I use this will it allow me to update my system? (I need to in order to download a DLC because it's saying I require a higher firmware... also I updated my atmosphere)

isn't there a firmware patcher for games? I think it's in nca builder. I seem to recall it asking that question when creating an nsp/xci.

    very dark scenes are more common than very bright scenes so i think i made the right choice

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    there was also a sony with worse local dimming and the glow was really apparent

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Human vision is non linear anyway. 100 nits is about 50% of the peak output of a 10,000 nit display.

    "very dark scenes are more common than very bright scenes" not in the games i play

    really have to buy the top end model to get a tv that doesnt have any of those compromises and that would've had more dimming zones too but i am not made o money

    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    that's not important

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    i can't tell the difference

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    but i can certainly tell the difference with black crush if i'm watching a scifi movie and i can't see wtf is going on

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's have a 3D look

  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "OLED's have a 3D look" no they don't lol
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

    Just get 5 years enjoyment out of it until Nintendy releases something and everyone forgets about switch games lol
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
