Hi guys,

My Switch is running well on 8.1.0 and Atmosphere.

I have never updated before, the Switch was on 8.1.0 when I brought it.

I understand that in order to play the latest games ill need to update.

My questions are;

1. How do I go about updating (safely)?, or should I stay on 8.1.0?
2. Is Atmosphere fully compatible with 9.xxx?

The latest atmosphere is supposed to be working with 9.1.0, but I haven't seen anything that specifically needs 9.x.x maybe Pokemon shield might, I'm running 9.0.0 but my system is ipatched, if you look up choidujour it's the safe way to update. Also if you decide to update if you are using a custom theme make sure to remove lockscreen

As of right now there's no game that I know of that absolutely requires 9.X and not all old homebrew work on 9.X so I'd recommend to stay at 8.1...But the choice is yours.
If you do decide to update though, get the latest atmosphere (which is compatible with 9.0.1) and update with choidujournx.

All homebrew does work I'm on 9.0.1, but you'll have to update practically everything as 9.0+ breaks controls on all older homebrew. So when you enter homebrew you can't do anything.

Luigi's Mansion 3 may require 9.0+ it comes out Oct 31.

I agree what he said above. FYI, just be careful when "updating" the game. Some of the newer game updates will require you to be on system firmware 9.0.1 in order to play.

The game was put on the eShop for preload on September 18th, almost 2 weeks before firmware 9.0 came out. It definitely does not require that firmware. And even if there is a Day 1 update that may require firmware 9.0m you can just not install it.
