    There is no control when Nintendo decides to drop firmware.

    And... Why would you want it? It's not like Nintendo gives us new things in updates.

    Wouldn't matter since all they do is change up their security and still gets cracked by the greatest Nintendo hacker

    I suppose you don't have enough stability in your life to ask such thing.

    People ask for everything these days .... if they can't get free pirated copies of games, they want unannounced firmware updates from Nintendo.

    Yeah, that only one improvement in various versions. I also do remember it. Still, they are not used to do it (and won't ever do it in most of the versions).

    I use sys-clk in 7.0.1 and have shorter loading times. Why do you need a firmware update?

    Nintendo Switch UI looks like dogshit even 3DS and WII U had better UI TBH. Why even wait for a new trash firmware.

    They've given up. I see why a couple months ago they needed new mods

    If you have a legit devkit from nintendo you can enjoy v9 right now.

    It may infact drop tonight around 8pm est for us retail end-users, but there is small possibly that v8.1 will be instead their next release.

    They'll skip 9 because it will conflate with the digit at the end of a lot of file names.

    It hasn't been released yet because Nintendo cannot count to 9 like Microsoft.

    If you can tell me what rule this post is breaking, I'll do something about it. And just a hint, none of the rules are "All posts must be topics that @CrisFTW and @Osga21 personally agree with and enjoy reading".

    The reason Microsoft did not have a Windows 9 is because there is software out there that would check for Windows versions beginning with 9, expecting them to be Windows 95 or Windows 98.
