    I guess some newbies dont know how to do it but its easy

    PROCESS:
    install 90DNS (https://gbatemp.net/threads/90dns-dns-server-for-blocking-all-nintendo-servers.516234 and dont turn it off!!)
    now turn off everything!
    DISABLE AUTORCM!!!
    now press POWER + VOL+ + VOL-
    you will boot into a menu for repairing switches. (no unbricking)
    now press 10 seconds POWER
    your switch will turn off
    and you did it your switch wont download new Updates threw the DNS and the Update has been deleted

    Tutorials has tutorial subforum. :P
    And you should write in title that this is about firmware update. I was thinking it will be about game updates.

    That doesn't matter. Things should go where they belong. Though even if this were labeled a tutorial instead of a suggestion, it's not even written well enough to be very useful. Finally, a newbie would completely ignore every existing thread including this one and make a new thread called "HELP MY SWITCH KEEPS ASKING ME TO UPDATE EVEN THOUGH I'M AT THE NEWEST FIRMWARE???"

    So I m entering to stock Switch, my backups doesn't loads at all. But i can't get to the menu. Is exactly the 3 buttons pressed at once or can I hold volume+ + volumen- and the press power?

    Okey got it, it needs to keep pressed untill it works. Over the Nintendo Switch launch logo, it will boot on this menu, not Ozone.

    Thanks for this reminder. it works perfectly. Don't know why I didnt have 90DNS on my Switch when I recall doing it first time I enter online to my wifi.

    I agree wholeheartedly. Poor formatting, no labeling, this hardly qualifies as a tutorial.

    This has been posted numerous times in the last year. Let's be real, noobs should be ignored when they start threads because everything has been discussed here numerous times. People need to learn to do research for themselves instead of having their hand held.

    yeah i though it was title update

    as for firmware update, the OP is incorrect. you dont need to disable autorcm. You just need to inject payload before pressing the buttons

    How can I do it with autorcm enabled? I try to press buttons before sending payload and I have payload launched (Hekate for example).

    You don't need to disable autorcm to enter maintenance mode.

    Thanks for helping the noobs.
    You should probably also add AutoRCM needs to be re-enabled before turning on the device else fuses will be burnt.

    What I normally do is about a second after my payload is injcted (atmosphere) I press and hold both volume up and down until the maintenance mode screen appears. It's right after the Nintendo switch logo
