    well he did so because he finds it complicated and i'm just saying it is as easy as it gets and he wants people to talk him out of it.

    Go to the Xbins faq (Don't think i can link it here but just google it) and they'll explain to you how to use xbins and then download the latest update and and put it on the SD card and use choidujournx to install it. It's that simple

    I guess the advantage with the method I am using is that I "officially" updated visibly on Nintendo's servers. And since I made a 5.1 NAND backup after updating (and I restored a clean 4.1 NAND backup before updating, and I've never gone online since that backup was made), I will have no "questionable gaps" in my logs (such as magically updating FW without having a logged "upgrade request" on Nin's servers).

    So I MIGHT still be able to be safely go back online (yes, I know the best option for that is STILL to never hack, but for a hacked Switch, this is as safe as it gets, banwise)

    [EDIT: actually I'm wrong with the "magically updating" thing since FW updates do come with some carts... but I didn't need a homebrew to update, so my NAND is still "relatively clean" in comparison]

    But then OP said they don't care about online, and they've been using SX pro for quite a while, so I guess it isn't applicable here.

    Honestly, why would you update? Just wait for Deja Vu, in my opinion.

    I updated too. Less hassle. If/when another solution comes out then ill just buy one on a lower firmware from a pawn shop or ebay. Just like back in the xbox360 days. Finding them in pawn shops was half the fun.

    Yes, that was exactly what I was thinking!

    As I said in first post, there are a lot of games and updates that require 5.x.x that I want to play/use.

    Personally I have my hopes that with the release of Atmosphere we will have more information if we should update or not. If there will be no real benefit of staying low after the release, I will just do the update.
    But yeah, 6.0 will come, I would expect with the release of Nintendo Online, so I expect the new FW to arrive in roughly one month.

    Just update to 5.1 and have Trinket m0 internally installed, with this you can coldboot to CFW, no more jigs and manually pushing payloads. Imo it's the best method, software coldboot exploit will never be possible and the next best thing, the untethered warmoot is not released.

    I just made up my mind - I just used the official way to update to 5.1 and I don't want to look back now. :lol:

    Great! This is fine. anyway only a warmboot will get out one day with a website.. and as others said, it's not going faster than this, and maybe bugged sometimes. The only like coolboot for now is the trinket M0.

    isn't it a bit presumptuous that cfw will never be installable above 4.1?

    FFS dude, put your 'big boy' pants on. If you want to update - do it and stop being a pussy & expecting other people to decide for you - man up!

    yeah, I updated as well. I had a switch that came with 4.1, but I couldn't access the eshop without updating. I had bought the xenoblade chronicles 2 dlc at best buy too which I couldn't redeem otherwise. I was sitting on that one for like a month.

    I can feel that too, OP. I have one with 3.0.0, really want to update to 5.1.0 right now for Mario Odyssey, Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Octopath Traveler... ChoiDujour method seems complicated and take time for someone like me :(
    Although i don't have much time to play these game right now, its kinda feel missing out without them installed.
    At least i have BOTW to keep myself busy (maybe for a few weeks because i only have time to play 1 hour a day) ^_^
