    Are there any reliable DNS's that allow this?
    I already updated my Switch accidentally from 2.1 -> 2.3 from a DNS that removes the update nag (I started up a software title and read to fast assuming it was an update for the game, nope system update lol.)

    Just asking becuase I haven't seen a lot of known DNS networks.

    First of all, update to 3.0. Don't worry, it's safe.

    If you have a laptop or PC, follow this guide.

    In other words i'd assume 2.3 & 3.0 would require hardmods to modify the system since more stuff is patched, or the way to hack it would be different.

    I will take my chances and stay on 2.3 tho. Who knows maybe it could be benifical to stay on an older fw :P

    It's always best to stay on older fw if u want some kind of switchhax... Also in house pegaswitch supports 2.3 but it's not public yet... They'll probably release it when Nintendo patches it...
