    Stupid Question™: Is Incognito supposed to allow official firmware updates?

    I switched over from SXOS 2.9 to Atmosphere 0.9.4 some weeks back and made sure to install the latest version of Incognito before making the switch knowing that it wouldn't work on stock Atmosphere. I backed up my prodinfo.bin, copied it from my SD card to my PC hard drive, deleted it from my SD card, then jumped over to Atmosphere proper. No problems since but once the new OFW 9.1.0 update released my system keeps pestering me. Even after rebooting into maintenance mode to clear the update files my system merely re-downloads them.

    After some initial reading before using Incognito it was my understanding that by deleting prodinfo a Switch shouldn't be able to connect to any official Nintendo service. Shouldn't that also bar software and firmware updates? SXOS and 90DNS don't suffer this problem. I only use internet functionality to download or update as needed. I'd prefer not to use 90DNS as it cuts my download speeds by roughly 2/3's.

    Additionally, I noticed when switching over to Atmosphere that the built-in news app keeps updating. I haven't thought much of it but now with this other concern I'm further puzzled: Is Incognito supposed to block news updates as well? Is it a ban risk if it doesn't?

    incodnito is meant to make your console invisible to Nintendo by blanking out your serial but doing so u loose access to nintendo servers until you restore your prodinfor back

    why is it on any topic when a newbie ask a question people act like a d**** if you don't want to answer a newb question why say nothing. when u insult them making the forum look like a place full of pr***

    Looking for a copy as well. Incognito_RCM is giving me Unknown pkg1 version so I'm unable to use that

    If you really want to use Internet without connecting to Nintendo, just use 90DNS. Otherwise there is no point in having Wi-Fi settings on a hacked console

    I need Incognito incase the 90DNS server goes down. I need it for JITS :)
    And also that i got a whole better download speed when switching from 90DNS to Incognito.

    90DNS could go down, it could be altered (accidentally or maliciously) in a way that allows Nintendo traffic through, and it slows down certain downloads from HBG/JITS. I personally recommend Incognito.

    I installed Incognito back in the day when I've been using ReiNX. Now I'm switching to Atmosphere because I needed 9.0.0 firmware, is Incognito still installed anyway?

    If you had used it to remove the prodinfo of your sysNAND then yes, it will still be "installed" (meaning the info will still be erased) regardless of which CFW you use.
    The only situation where your prodinfo gets restored (other than using the restore function of the homebrew obviously) is if you used incognito to erase the prodinfo from an emuMMC partition and then create a new emuMMC from a sysNAND without incognito.

    I just tested, it will affect the emunand only.
    The original syanand is the original SN.
    I am using jimzrt/Incognito_RCM
