    Nope, sorry. If you want to launch eShop, you need to update, and then you can't downgrade cause the update burns eFuses.

    1. Wrong forum
    2. Support me thread
    3. Has no clue, that Nintendo will always try to tie downloadable content to the latest possible firmware (currently no workaround)
    4. Has no clue about what he/she is loosing by updating to "most recent".

    So lets make this another thread about "hey should I update to x, because I'm on y, because I want, but should I and would you, and what would I loose - and what if, but - then...." - because we only had several hundred of them at this point.

    5. 4.2.0 Might get a non coldboot software entry point in the future, that might allow you to launch CFW without a dongle. Might take longer though. Or not. Also - thats "in the works" stuff, and as the good dame gundula, patron saint of all fortune tellers for idiot clients always used to say - if something else comes along, that might change this situation - Its hard to forsee that.

    If you're content with using a jig/AutoRCM to load CFW and homebrew, then you aren't losing anything by updating. System version 4.1.0 and lower will likely someday get an untethered softmod method of booting into CFW, and that's pretty much it.

    You must use the eShop.

    If you update now, you won't. You just have to change your Homebrew Menu file. Ask around for the link.

    A few months ago, I went to the eShop and bought something. However, wasn't able to download without an update. That wasn't happening.
     
  8. 1. Do not update, 4.0.0 will get a sotmod that will enable you to boot into CFW via the browser.

    2. Eshop access on lower FW should be possible in Atmosphere once emunand is working, as emunand can be updated without screwing with the emmc.

    There is however no guarantee that you will not be banned.

    ad2: There is a risk, that N will detect and ban accounts that log into their online services via CFW. But we'll have to wait and see..

    You could have left out the garbage of your post that is upwards from 5. to be honest.

    There's absolutely no point coming into this thread and shitting all over some dude because you're a douchebag and need to make yourself feel good. Just report the thread and move on, or alternatively... grow up.

    Just update for now. I heard the untethered fusee gelee mod will be done by the end of Summer, and it's impossible for Nintendo to patch, as it takes advantage of an exploit in the Nvidia Tegra processor.

    Where did you get that from? Iam not saying it's not true but it's the first time I hear about booting the CFW via the browser.

    Every few system updates or so, Nintendo burns a fuse inside your Switch. This is a permanent hardware modification that cannot be undone via software hacks. When your Switch boots up, it checks the firmware with the number of fuses burnt. If they don't match, your system will not boot up. This is was implemented as a means to prevent downgrading.

    I find this to be a bit extreme IMO.

    What makes you believe this? I have reason to believe this is not the case.

    so I'm still slightly confused by this one. is it the tegra itself that checks? or horizon?
