    cfw = go ahead and update. just update luma to 9.1 first.

    Does everything work as normal on 11.8 including freeshop?

    Yes, for now.

    Staying on 11.7 won't protect you from Nintendo's impending freeshop kill.

    The new update is going to kill freeshop? I thought it was only affecting online play with pirated games, i.e bans.

    There is a lot of misinformation going around.

    Currently, the way that Nintendo is checking for pirated games is during install of games using eshop clones. From what I've read there have been no checks when launching or going online with installed games.

    Freeshop wont be around for much longer, It's also best to not download games in sleep mode (this is risky as hell, i guess)

    Once freeshop dies. its back to loading cias through FBI

    Okay we have at least five threads asking the exact same question clogging up the forum now. Can you please use the search function before you post? Or post in someone else's thread instead of making a new one?

    Yeah, having a sticky on the front page would be wonderful.

    There's just too much to wade through here now.

    There was even more 3ds threads than Switch in the Recent Content section for a couple of days.
    It was like old times. *plays sentimental tune*

    So if you're currently on 11.7 can you still go online to like battle someone in pokemon or will they force you to update?
