    Disable your internet settings, and insert a disc game with 5.5.1 update. That easy.

    Breath of the Wild is a no-brainer, but anything made within the last year should have it. Possibly even some cheap games.

    Paper Mario Color Splash has the 5.5.1 update on the Disc and BOTW has it not sure about any other games though.

    Check Kafluke's Noob Guide in my signature, he has a list of the games that have the 5.5.1 update on them.

    Lol I love it when people say get the link from my signature due to the fact that anyone using the Tapatalk app don't see them the vast majority of android Internet browsers don't display them ect. Is it to much to ask that people just post links instead of saying get it from my signature lol.

    Here is a screen shot of my phone to prove the point

    ok. But do you know how easy it is to click my username to go to my profile and see my signature?

    And thank you for pointing that out to me, I didn't know that. I will make sure to word my posts better next time.

    Another no-game option would be downloading all 5.5.1 legit system titles for your region (is this even possible anymore? on 3DS old browsers/launchers/kernels are usually removed nowadays) and installing them via a modded version of Wupinstaller without the blacklist

    but frankly there are quite a lot of possible failure points, especially for an untrained person, behind this way...

    5.5.0 should work as well, which would increase the amount of compatible games. given the only difference between 5.5.0 and 5.5.1 was the browser (ninupdates), there shouldn't be compatibility issues.

    they only did this for the 3DS so far. but even if they do remove it I've got an archive of (most? not pre-2.0) system titles from NUS.
