Is System update v6 live or is it safe to install exFAT as of today?

    Hi all,
    I've just got my Switch, it is currentl on v5.1, not yet hacked. I need the exFAT update, but I'm not sure if system update v6 is already live and I'd like to avoid it right now. If I insert an exFat-formatted microSD it tells me that I need to update, but I'm not sure about what it is going to install since there is no explicit version shown on the screen.

    TL/DR: is it still safe to install the exFAT update online from 5.1, or I'm going to end up with v6 because it was already released?

    About the console itself, I've got it used, 1y old, definitely safe (XAJ70023), but thanks for the hint anyway. :)
    I tried checking for an undate without the microSD, and it proposes an update, so I'd say v6 is out now. I'll give a look at ChoiDujourNX, thanks!

    backup as mentioned here
    then update officially with the exfat update while you still can. then remove from online so you don't accidentally get the 6.0 update

    i dont think you can unlink your account from banned unit. Someone did email nintendo the same scenario with you but to no avail

    Guy look you want to unlink your account from your switch ?
    Then call or use webchat to contact nintendo customer services
    tell them you wish to unlink your account from your console as your console no longer works and that you wish to connect it to a new console you have bought...

    They will ask you for the serial of old console in your case banned one...
    3 games from your downloads or purchases whether its demos payed for or free games..
    your date of birth. and your name. then they will say thanks for that and unlink it its like a 2 min process . i suggest you do that now because very soon you wont be able to unlink like today tomorrow



    Wrong did mine last week. no mention of ban or not banned..
