    only much improved stability and im sure a few more nes online titles. also, dont forget a new update for those controllers, both halves.

    didnt ps4 have a similar update? or was that the ps3 that bricked some consoles?

    Guess it's not a rumor anymore.....God almighty himself has now confirmed not to update. SciresM said "Switch firmware 8.0.0 has been released. Do not update to it until further notice. It patches multiple critical bugs -- especially if you are on a unit with the RCM bug patched, updating may mean you never have any way to hack the console via software."

    They'll still hate.

    He doesn't say anything about systems with Auto RCM getting bricked though. He's just warning users that have newer Switches with the patched RCM bug that the update might make it impossible for them to ever hack their Switches because it patches critical bugs that could be used as an entry point. And of course nobody should update before it is known what the firmware update exactly changes and Atmosphere is updated to support it, like always.

    Fair enough, but he does say you may never be able to hack your console via software again. So yes, no "brick" (which gets used incorrectly all over consoles forums), but still not good for those patched consoles.

    Also, a big warning: If you are on a unit which has the RCM bug (fusee gelee) patched, and start playing with Atmosphere using Deja Vu: do not install AutoRCM. This will brick your unit, and you will need to use hardware to fix corrupted the BOOT0 partition.

    Applies for patched units.

    That’s always been the case... not anything new or 8.0.0 specific

    Warmboot exploit chain for <=7.0.1

    It’s public now that it’s patched. You can see the details on switchbrew. It just hasn’t been implemented into anything
