    This is exactly why I keep my switch offline. Seen a couple of posts about people having their switch's auto update.

    I accidentally updated my console to 6.2.0, with ReiNX, can I downgrade with choudojoir to 6.1.0 and run CFW?

    According to some recent threads, 6.2.0 has been exploited. While it may not be safe to update yet, keep your eyes peeled, because it should be in the near future.

    God bless you!
    Damn it! Nintendo gets always it hands on this things,... unevitable but the scene will not surrender, I hope... so I will stay tuned about next news and let's see what happens... sure a solution would be there sooner or after!

    So this is a big deal? i'm on 6.0, will I not be able to play games that require higher firmware later on SXOS? can you bypass firmware?

    Also heard 6.2 is cracked.

    I don't believe bypassing firmware is something we can do at this point. Unless it's possible to somehow repair the fuses that the Switch burns (which would take way too much time and money to justify the means), bypassing firmware doesn't seem plausible at this point.

    Glad to hear it was "cracked" so fast but from what it sounds someone oof'd and revealed how they done it so now it can just be patched in the next firmware update since apparently it wasn't really fully cracked...

    I already updated since I don't plan on hacking my Switch for a while since I like being able to play games online..

    All they have so far is the ability to decrypt 6.2 games and run them on 6.1.

    There is additional work required to make 6.2 CFW, it could be a while.

    Shit, I just blindly installed the update after not using my Switch for a month or so. At first I thought the issue was just with auto RCM removed. Right now I'm unable to boot into custom firmware OR original. Is there anyway to downgrade?

    It's possible to downgrade, but because you burnt an eighth efuse, your sleep mode isn't going to work, and you'd have to boot RCM each time you want to coldboot the system.

    It should also be noted that all official updates will remove AutoRCM. It needs to be reinstalled.

    It might be worth waiting for 6.2.0 CFW support to be released instead of downgrading.

    Thanks for the reply. Is it normal behaviour that I can't boot into original firmware through the SX OS menu? Black screen for both custom and original firmware. I was just glad to see that 6.2 is already hacked, just need to wait until Xecuter pushes out the update.

    Edit: Nevermind. I uninstalled auto RCM and can now boot straight into 6.2 OFW. Glad to see a new hack will be out soon.

    I gues on earth.
    Both. You can either update with choidujourNX or stay where you are and use tinfoil's ignore FW version feature when installing games.

    What I *haven't* seen answered in this thread (I read this whole thread just in case), is this scenario:

    I'm still on OFW 4.1.0, installed through official means. Can I update to 6.2.0, temporarily, using choidujorNX (or however it's spelled), without burning fuses, access the eShop, then downgrade back to 4.1.0? I realise fuses are burned at every opportunity in 6.2.0, so this might not be possible. But I haven't seen anything that confirms this. I just want to confirm my Nintendo Account is attached to a Switch, so I can purchase some eShop games from my PC's web browser. I'll download them later, when I can "safely" run 6.2.0.

    I *do* have a 2nd Switch on 3.0.0, so keeping my 4.1.0 fuses aren't required. But it would be prefered to keep the option available.
