I am not making the same mistake I made with the Wii U.

    When I get the NX I am making sure I don't update it. I only posted this so that you guys could follow the same steps. Sometimes if you get a new console you get sooooo excited you don't realize you updated it and now you can't hack. Make sure you keep that in mind when you buy it. :yay:

    Hopefully we can use the console without internet. Although if we can buy the console on release date the chance of a update to patch hacks is slim. I am just telling this too people who are gonna buy this maybe a month or two after release.

    Guys its Nintendo known for the biggest console screw ups after 2006. Especially patching exploits. The only respect I have for Nintendo consoles is that I don't ruin the online community by hacking. Same with Sony.

    Still if we buy on release date we have the best chance for hacking.

    Keep in mind that some updates actually introduce hacks.
    Like on a 1.0 3ds you can't do shit because there's no internet browser.

    If we need to update then we will. I am not taking the risk and I am informing other people about the same thing.

    What if a hack is introduced on a higher version, but the latest is patched and your only update choice is latest ;)
    In all seriousness, not updating is the best choice but either way there is a chance for it to backfire.

    Not updating means you won't be able to play the latest games after just a couple months. Most hacks, when released, are for the latest system version, especially the very first hacks. So I'd say it's pretty safe to update until you first read about an upcoming hack from reliable sources.

    Or just wait to buy until a verified hack is released. Then don´t update until it´s confirmed it´s okay to do so. Duh.

    Here's hoping they handle it like cartridge updates, or sony that let's you do offline updates.

    Tubehax DNS! Maybe they'll pull something like "By checking this agreement, you give Nintendo permission to update your console when a new stability update is released for maximum performance and security."

    Why do you want to know?
    I'm updating my Switch, let's be honest it's going to take so long for an exploit to come around that the burden caused by not updating won't be worth it.

    Pretty much this. After the recent blow-out that is the 3DS (I say recent, but I mean anything A9LH and Freeshop/titlekey stuff) I don't see them leaving much of an opening. Heck, even the Wii U isn't fully hacked yet (have to re-install every boot). I'm not saying it won't happen, but I'm going to enjoy my system as much as possible. Heck, with it using cartridges we may be lucky enough to get an R4 type deal at some point.

    might be a long time to not update, and willing to bet there be force update on the game carts.
    I remember most systems and it seems like there normally 4 or 5 updates before someone talks about the system being hackable.
    Most people while play there new games so they update.

    But we will see how this goes and how while nintendo online will do. They really been lacking in that for ever.

    if you never update it than you won't be playing any actual games on it for a long time because like the wiiu the games are going to make you update. and look how long it too the wiiu to finally get a usb loader far too late it was :P
