Question Is fiddler supposed to block updates while allowing online play or was that patched?

    Just curious,
    If fiddler was patched then that means the only way to block updates would be to connect offline for the time being.

    No. You would need a homebrew app to do that. Which I'm pretty sure somebody already has something like that in the works

    :unsure:Then what exactly is Fiddler supposed to do for a regular Homebrew user, I can connect to a DNS just fine or completely disconnect the wifi from the Switch with no risk.

    It is suppose to stop the update nags and updates from downloading in the background. Really helpful for people that have internet just as fast as dial-up(like me) and for people that want to stay on a specific Firmware.

    As far as I know, Fiddler was never able to allow you to go online with outdated Firmware. You used to be able to do that though.

    Proably more than just A exploit. No something was patched that was incredibly important.

    Alright guys, well thank you for the clarification. I will just keep my wifi off for like 10 years on my switch until Homebrew comes out at some point :P
