    You'll be fine for cfw if you plan on doing hardmod.

    True, but most end users will try to avoid a hardmod. CFW will through Fusee Gelee will be possible regardless of FW, but if you want userland HB or CFW on a Mariko Switch you should not update regardless.

    Well if you get a Mariko switch it will already be on 5.x and likely won't have bootrom exploit, so that doesn't really matter. Plus Mariko isn't even out yet

    I don't think the first batch of Mariko switches will come with 5.0.2 through. Several bundles are going out of stock at Amazon / Walmart so for all we know the next shipments could contain the updated SoC, and would presumably have been manufactured during 5.0 - 5.0.1.

    Regardless lower will always be better in terms of actually getting Fusee Gelee working until we know if anything is patched.

    You know, the Switch is still lacking basic features like themes or backgrounds or really any form of customization. Basically features that would actually make someone want to update and thus cause a possible individual to struggle between hacking or having the latest features. But instead The Big N is just making boring updates that people will willingly ignore for the chance of hacking their own system. Nintendo isn't stopping hackers with these updates, they just annoying the average user and making hackers care less about not updating.

    Bug fixes are not really a negative thing, I think once they get the online stuff live we will see a large update with actual valuable features, but I agree they have been really slow, at this point the 3DS at the very least got folders..

    I am not complaining about bug fixes, I am complaining that they need to make these updates worth updating to. Even non-hackers are making fun of these updates because none of them even remotely look interesting. If Nintendo is looking to stop hackers by encouraging them to update, they need to make the updates worth updating to.

    This. I hate using this word, but imagine being a "normie" Nintendo user. You see a new update, expecting, maybe custom themes? Custom BGM? A browser? Netflix?! Virtual console? Then, to your disappointment, jack shit, just more stability stuff, that doesn't seem to make a difference to you.

    I may not be your typical Nintendo user here, but I am expecting big things to happen in September 2018. I would never expect anything from Nintendo prior to E3 at all at this point.

    Not useless. This is to prepare for the upcoming Labo release, as well as resolve some issues with motion controls.

    If nintendo really wanted to improve the system stability it would release the next fw update with a 2. Kickstand xD
