    Well you are in 5.0 firmware, that is all you can know for sure. The devs are working on 1.0-2.3 and 3.0 for now (entire 2017), probably Xecuter have someting to say but nothing are 100% YES or NOT .

    oh yeah, one thing that this crybaby still hasn't realized is: you can only choose one and ONLY between CFW and Online service, choose the 1st thant means stay away from internet, and don't cry when you accidentally updated to latest FW.
    YOU CAN'T HAVE THEM BOTH.

    Just because you didn't check facts before making a false statement doesn't meant the statement wasn't false.

    I gues on earth.
    But it was not a false statement, Just read what I wrote. I never said how it works in Switch, so I was never really wrong. I never said "this is how it works".

    That's incorrect. Cfw will have updateable emuNAND, which is basically the only reason SciresM is even developing atmosphere-nx. With an updated emunand you then have access to online and eshop.

    Easy: No. Nothing you can do about it. that's why I disabled Wifi for Nintendo Switch. Perfect safe!

    I guess I should play some Splatoon then while I still can. I thought I wouldn't be able to download the update, but it seems to have downloaded fine.

    Yeah, it did here too for some reason. I need to get bored until the block comes. (Updated my 3DS to 9.3 solely because I thought random themes were cool. Maaan I was so mad until memchunkhax2 came!)

    Just to give the technicalities:
    Switch has better hardware level security, like fuse based anti-downgrade, upgradable bootrom flash as sister to the ROM, and so on. After update is done officially, it's done much like with Xbox 360.

    Aside that, security on Switch 5.0 is probably rivaling the security models in xbox consoles which afaik: were only hardware exploited and even then not perfectly and mostly for piracy only. Nintendo of 3DS and Wii U is no more, for some it's better, for some it's worse. I dunno, I like free shit but I also like online in games that have it so I kinda take buying my shit for that.

    Probably eventually. Might wanna consider selling and getting a 2.1 console or somthing, or the mod chip might be real, you never know.

    There are ppl that have already bricked their switches turning them off during an update?

    Perhaps I'm wrong I guess.. but afaik, firmware is right on top of hardware.. everything else gets virtual memory and their own virtual address space and can be reinstalled. For me, firmware is "Permanent software programmed into a read-only memory." Exactly how Google defines it. Even wiki has a nice definition too: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Firmware

    Seems to be in-lined with what I've learned.. but again, perhaps these definitions have changed. I dunno what they teach in school nowadays..

    if you can afford to do so, buy a second switch on a lower fw and use that for hax. then you don't have to worry about updating to the latest fw on your current one.
