Question Can't bypass "a system update is required in order to play software" anymore, any help?

    I was able to do this with tinfoil but then I updated one of my games and it just failed to open. So I deleted the game and every time I try to reinstall it even whilst using tinfoil it still gives me the update message when trying to open it.

    I have the game physically too but it doesn't seem to matter, problem still persists.

    Any reason behind this?

    Is there any thing I'll be missing out on if I do just update my system?

    Thanks

    I gues on earth.
    Boot to maintenance mode (vol up and down on boot) and then reboot back. Or just update (idk what FW are you on).

    It means you're on lower fw than the game or update you installed.
    Try ignore fw when installing.

    More details are needed. What CFW are you using? Are you using emuNAND? What firmware are you on?

    If you're on an unpatched switch and update your sysNAND to the latest version, you'll burn fuses and potentially miss out on a future exploit that would negate the need for a RCM jig or payload dongle. Depending on your situation, this might not matter to you.

    If you're on an ipatched system, updating your system will stop you from using any currently-known exploits, and you might never be able to run homebrew or CFW in the future.

    With emuNAND you can upgrade your emuNAND to the latest system version while leaving your sysNAND on a lower version, which will also prevent you from burning fuses.

    Double-check the message, it could be that you don't need a system firmware update, but that the game itself requires an update and refuses to start without it. I've run into that situation multiple times.

    If you update a game and uninstall it. When you re install it you need the update you used or it will give you this error
    Anyone who wants to play unpatched needs to use dev menu to reset the games version number

    I had the same problem with you for months and couldn't find a solution untill yesterday. All you have to do is to get dev menu definitive edition, install it via Goldleaf, open it, select your cartridge game and select ResetRequiredVersion option. You're done.

    'Definitiv Edition' Can you provide a link? I thought DevMenu was not recommended to be used anymore?

    Just search for DevMenu 6.x Definitive edition.
    You will have no problem using it. It is .nsp file and you can add it or remove it with GoldLeaf
