    Has your Switch been lacking stability? Well then has Nintendo got something for you! Firmware version 8.0.1 is now live and available for download. The changelog is minimal this time around, only noting that there’s been general stability updates. This thread will be updated if any major homebrew or exploits have been patched yet again.

    Probably home.
    Remember kids, when an earthquake happens, take refuge under your Switch and aside your 3DS. A gravitational field generated by s t a b i l i t y will repel any upcoming danger.

    Such stability. My Switch is now bulletproof.

    It's most likely only a fix for the de Blob crash in 8.0.0.

    I was wondering why the last update tasted so stale, now I know why. It needs more stability! :creep:

    I'm guessing they remembered to burn an efuse this time?

    At this rate the Switch will “achieve” a higher version number than the Nintendo 3DS and New N3DS

    Apparently 8.0.1 doesn't change much when it comes to homebrew and CFW support. @SciresM was able to boot Atmosphère right off the bat, he confirmed HBL works and the titles that got updated don't get in AMS' way.

    Source (from ReSwitched's Discord server):

    Even if the new OFW seems like it's literally nothing™ I'd personally wait for further confirmation to update on patched switches just for extra safety (and of course avoid any update like the plague if you're on <8.0.0) while non-patched units should be fine.

    This is the FUSE they forgot to burn on 8.0 I hope you all learn the lesson now.

    Edit: Apparently they didn't learn their lesson xD

    Wish they'd just call these vulnerability patches. We all know what they mean by stability and it just sounds so silly worded that way.

    This one's likely to fix DeBlob though.
