    After being leaked by dataminers, and then teased by Nintendo, the Switch's firmware 6.0 update, set to go live today, is now available to officially download. As noted before, this update focuses on preparing Switch consoles for the new online service. For the first three hours after the update becomes available, the eShop will go down for maintenance. Once that wraps up, you'll be free to buy a Nintendo Switch Online membership, start your free trial, and get to testing out the new features. In regards to the NES games, new information has rolled out, mentioning that players will have to download them all in bulk, together, in a ~60MB file. And don't worry, general system stability improvements to enhance the user's experience have been made.

    Most notably, perhaps, is the new ability to digitally share games with other consoles. If you sign into another Switch account, you can set a console as Primary or Non-Primary. A non-primary account can even play games from the primary account, with the caveat that the primary console isn't playing any digital games, and that you're constantly online.

    • As I said in the other thread, if this is the same version of 6.0.0 as the one that leaked, there's no reason not to update at this point. tumGER's v9 files are fully compatible with the leaked version of 6.0.0.
    • If you don't want to burn efuses, you need to update using ChoiDujourNX.
    • If you update your system normally without ChoiDujourNX, AutoRCM will be removed if you already have AutoRCM installed. This is true of all system updates.
    • You can reinstall AutoRCM after the update, or you can just use ChoiDujourNX to update instead.

    This appears to be a slightly different version to the leaked one

    I'll quote myself from the game share thread but this doesn't seem to be the same build, there's new features in here.

    Best to wait for approval from TX before installing 6.0 considering some files are different than the leaked 6.0 version.

    Dauth now checks for redundancies. It will not generate an auth token if you connect with a ticket shared with someone else, remains to be seen if it checks if the ticket is VALID to a RightsID though but I cannot imagine it doesn't verify the ticket's origin otherwise how would it even know to check any thing (?). This will likely also apply to cart headers.

    I was looking forward to the new Captain Toad icons, but after checking Twitter this morning I just can’t. I need that memory flashing thing from MiB badly.
