    I have everything from SXOS to a trinket built inside, and I have been sat in 5.1.0 but I want to play my legit games online. Is it safe to update to 6.1.0 and will everything still work ? Thanks

    It's safe to update but isn't safe to go online. They will eventually ban you. Is it worth it?

    Going online or updating or hacking in general?
    (all of those are worth in eu thanks to GDPR apparently)

    You need a jig, the one from the NS-Atmosphere kit work.

    He has a trinket so he probably wired the RCM_strap as well.

    Going online with a hacked switch exposes risk of ban. But the risk may be less in EU because of GDPR. You're choice. Avoiding online is pretty much as bad as a ban, so maybe it's best for yo to just enjoy it for now.

    GDPR isn't going to do SHIT to prevent you from being banned. The risks are the same no matter where in the world you are

    GDPR means you can disable telemetry. Doesn't that help prevent bans?

    Sure, the JoyCon update has a check for RCM modded JoyCons, but that's only an issue if you do the mod that permanently bridges the pins. The button isn't constantly pressed so it shouldn't cause any issues.

    OK, but it probably increases the average length of time until they catch you. It seems to be some kind of probability based system. It makes no sense. If he wants total safety, needs total abstinence.

    Yes, but is it safe? I mean 4 out of 5 stars.
