    Hey, basically I updated my switch to 5.0 a month ago by mistake.

    I'm considering buying another switch then returning the one I have on 5.0 but I want to keep my BOTW save. Is there anyway to do this?



    or I might just buy a second switch and have 2 tbh if playing online will be a pain in the future.

    There‘s no point in buying another switch because the firmware doesn‘t matter if you want to hack your switch ;)

    I gues on earth.
    If you are above 4.1.0, there is really no reason why not to update.

    THERE IS NO CFW ON SWITCH. yet. atmosphere'' and team xecuter's cfw are the only known cfw's, at least to me, and neither of them is out. what you are talking about is homebrew. PLEASE stop mixing stuff.

    Hekate is some sort of CFW. And any modifications to FW are considered CFW. So when you patch your Switch with hekate, it is CFW.
