    So with the 6.0 update, comes a new update for the joycon firmware 3.8B, old was 3.89.

    What exactly have they changed with each firmware update for the joycons? Is there a change log somewhere?

    That's what the update is, I thought it was the Switch! That would explain no pro controller update!

    that backup doesn't include firmware updates, only the settings of the joycon. you can't downgrade the joycons that easily.

    No if you want to use a jig or have modified your Joycon to act like a jig.

    No I mean if you've modified your Joycon to act like a jig (i.e soldered the pins or crossed them over). There was a PSA before about Joycons (which have been modified) not working Wirelessly etc, so it's most likely the same situation.

    they were not working cause of 9-10 bridge permanently, and another reason why im no fan of joycon tinfoil jig method..

    Waiting for ashura to show up in 3 2 1 :lol:

    But hey, lets see what news appears on the joycon update so we know for sure and not guess..

    So it seems if you update to 6.0, the first time you attach joycons to the system, it will automatically ask you to update the controller. It's not forced, so you don't have to accept it.

    not just the joycons,
    the Pro controller has a update as well, dock the switch, and connect the controller via use then pick the update controllers option in the system setting menu

    not sure what the update for pro controller dose
