I find it really annoying that some games i have require updates and sometimes i simply cannot find them. Worms WMD asks for updates and the latest i can find i have installed!

Is there no possibility of a homebrew that blocks the check? How does the Switch know there an update without being online? I guess it's something to do with firmware updates containing info?

If you set up a communication blocker such as Incognito or a DNS correctly, you shouldn't be getting any prompt for update, as for updates if you can't find them online, you can try HBG Shop.

My Switch stays offline. However after updating the firmware it KNOWS there are new updates for games. I don't want to pay for HBG.

You don't have to pay anything to use HBG Shop, it is free, you must have connected online once atleast for it tell you that there is an update for games available.

I had no wireless access points set up on my emunand prior to enabling incognite and HBG crashes Atmosphere because of...childishness.

hbgshop is just Tinfoil though. Tinfoil works fine on Atmosphere. It just won't work if it finds any Kosmos related files on the SD (because the dev is a shit)

Are you sure those are game updates the games are asking for and not a system update?

Definitely not a system update I know the difference but thanks!

Does that really work in Tinfoil to reset that I'll test after I finish my night shift [emoji50]

Does Lithium have this feature too?
