    I'm on SXOS and Switch FW 6.2, and I really want to play some new games (Cadence of Hyrule for example) that require a higher firmware. I tried Tinfoil but no dice this time.

    I successfully used ChoiDujour so update from 5.1 to 6.2 a couple months back, but I'm a little concerned that SXOS isn't as smooth with 8.1 yet since it is a lot newer.

    Should I be okay with going ahead and updating, or is there anything I should know first? I do not care about EmuNAND, so keep that in mind.

    Thank you

    That’s very encouraging, thanks. Choudujour went smoothly for me my first time, so I may be ready to give 8.0.1 a shot

    There's no downside. The upside is being able to play the latest games.

    I will look into that. Right now I'm backing up my NAND, so I haven't committed to anything yet. Do you remember which source/instructional you used to deal with emunand?
