    After being hinted at by the iOS version notes for Nintendo's parental control app, the Nintendo Switch has received the firmware update for version 5.0.0. The last update to the Nintendo Switch, and previous current firmware, was version 4.1.0 which released in December of last year. The new update to 5.0.0 adds new avatars from Kirby and ARMS, changes to parental controls, and as always, everyone's favorite; system stability improvements. While this is a major update in terms of version number, it appears that the changes here are relatively minor in scope. You can see the full changelog in the quote below.

    As always, if you have any interest at all in homebrew, be sure to stay at the lowest possible firmware you can.

    Maybe Nintendo has something else planned up their sleeve for 5.0.0 that’s coming soon(tm)

    Still on 2.1, still in its plastic wrapper.

    Also, no wallpaper support?
