    I'm looking to hack my Switch and am wondering if it's possible to System Transfer from my 6.2 version console to the 7.0 console without updating, that way I can hack the 6.2 version and just use the 7.0 as my main. Does anyone know if this is possible, or does Big N force me to update before doing a system transfer?
