    As of today, Nintendo has pushed out a minor firmware update in the form of version 7.0.1. According to the patch notes, only one thing has been changed, which is a fix for Pokémon Let’s Go. Slight connection issues have been resolved when connecting Let’s Go to Pokemon Go, and of course, the expected general stability updates are included.


    • Resolved an issue where the Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee! games cannot reconnect to the Pokémon GO app if the game software was closed after pairing with the app.

    Luckily the wonderful products of Team-Xecuter work as always. What would we do without GaryOPA? God... I can't even imagine a world like that.

    Updating the firmware fixed the reconnection issue. Isn't it possible that firmware's feature was what was broken?

    First)
    Don't update, CFW still isn't working on 7.x publicly

    Second)
    This update does not burn any fuses

    Third)
    This update still works with ChoidujourNX

    Reportedly, TSEC and the master key were not updated. Whenever BYOK-less support for 7.0.0 on AMS will get done, it'll support 7.0.1 too.

    It is possible, but what exactly prompted it to break after the 7.0 update?

    If it wasn't then why did it take this long to fix?

    Nothing would change, anyone can do what Gary does and most already do what he does without being a paid shill.

    I don't know the details of the game, if account pairing is newer somehow or what. But the fix is described to address slight issues, so it wasn't exactly game breaking. It might just be an update for a module that handles connection and pairing confirmation to be more consistent.
