Hacking I'm on 4.1. Should I abandon all hope to eventually hack my switch?

At this point you can't do much with homebrew either. To enjoy the games and honor the money you paid for this console, updating is nothing wrong.

People always say they wanted homebrew only for emulators, expect they can simply do it on any platform which is easier and cheaper than buying a Switch.

I purchased another Switch and have it stay on 3.0.0 so I don't have to go into any kind of drama. The only console I don't have a duplicate is Xbox One, which is very unlikely to have "real" homebrew within its life period.

Switch has the appeal of being portable, with good controls and is perfect for emulation; emulating on a smartphone is really a PITA. Staying on older firmware will just prevent one from playing the latest games.

How many years it took for hackers to support >3.5 PS3 (if i remember)
if you bought your switch for homebrews sell it and try finding one 3.0 or less

For at least a year.
Please don't give false date/time lapses.

For all we know, it can never happen, it can happen tomorrow, or it did happen on a different reality.

So don't say things like they are happening at a certain date. for all we know, years can pass before this.

For now yes. It's hard to tell what will happen and anything could happen. Remember how many times the latest 3DS firmware was deemed unhackable?
Anyway if you're desperate try to buy another Switch at a lower firmware. Either that or wait it out and hope something happens on a later firmware

Probably not for a long while. I updated because although homebrew is cool, the switch is the first console I've owned that has completely won me over. I updated to play newer games and I'm enjoying those games. I have my 3ds if I need my homebrew and emulation fix. If we get homebrew on a future firmware at some point, cool. If not, I'll just continue to use my console for what I bought it for: playing switch games. If you care more about homebrew they definitely wait on 3.0.0, it's right now the only firmware for homebrew.

Private releases vs public. Hmmm

If you wanted it for emulation, then yes, you shouldn't worry about hacking your Switch.

Here's why:

NES and SNES games are confirmed to be coming via Online and the upcoming Virtual Console service officially.
N64 hasn't, but is extremely likely considering it was also on the Wii and Wii U's VC library.
GameCube and Wii have been confirmed for VC.
Handheld consoles currently unknown, but I expect GB, GBC, GBA, some DS and some 3DS games to be available too.

Current ports on the eShop:

The entire NeoGeo library.
VS. Super Mario Bros. runs on an Famicom/NES hardware equivalent arcade board.
Romancing SaGa 2 was ported from the Super Famicom / SNES.
Pacman VS. which is included in Namco Museum was a port from both the Gamecube and GBA.
Gekido Kintaro's Revenge was ported from GBA.
World of Goo was ported from the Wii.
TLOZ:BOTW, MK8 Deluxe, Little Inferno and a few more games were ported from the Wii U.
Resident Evil Revelations was ported from the 3DS, although it was originally spelled "Revelaitons".
Syberia 1 and 2 were ported from the XBOX. Obviously you shouldn't expect any other XBOX games to arrive on Switch, though!

Others:

GOLF which was on the NES used to be included, but has since been removed.
The Chinese NVIDIA Shield has various Wii and Gamecube games which are likely to eventually receive a release on Switch.

So, considering the only working homebrew so far is an SNES emulator, I really don't see any reason to feel bad for missing out.

GameCube and Wii have been confirmed for VC.

Wait, since when? If it's about that update regarding being able to use Gamecube controllers on the Switch, that's not exactly confirmation. Likewise I don't think the Nvidia Shield getting Gamecube/Wii games is confirmation for Switch.
