    What better way to celebrate the 35th anniversary of Super Mario, than with a brand new update for your Nintendo Switch? The latest firmware update has gone live, bringing the console to version 10.2.0, and as unsurprisingly as always, offers general system stability improvements to enhance the user's experience. For those that are running Atmosphere, you'll want to refrain for updating, just for a little while, as the CFW isn't compatible quite yet with this new firmware. SciresM will fortunately get an Atmosphere update out that supports 10.2.0 later tonight.

    EDIT:

    Atmosphere has been updated to 0.14.3, which now supports the latest Nintendo Switch firmware update.

    When they push out these updates that break cfw, I wonder if they think "Oh yeah, we got them this time!".

    if that's what they were thinking, it pisses me off as a legit user. At least Sony adds features while also beefing up security. The number of people who pirate on the switch has got to be less than 1%, but ironically that's the only percentage Nintendo seems to care about.

    They're not even trying to break CFW most of the time, so not really, lol

    you're preaching to the choir, my friend. I want themes, backing up saves via usb, and maybe even achievements (they could call them stamps or something since they use them in a lot of games).

    It's a minor update and will likely come with a new sdk version, so new features were added. Just not ones the average user can easily/directly see/use.

    They've been working on 11.0.0 for the past several months and it'll probably release in October or November, shit takes time, lol.

    Yes, because their major revisions have been totally exciting. Ha!

    Yeah, not all updates are just made to break CFW. 6.0, 6.2, and 7.0 were, though.

    The biggest feature that I can remember is the one where you can transfer games. Before that, it was overly convoluted.

    Their major updates have consistently been absolutely massive since March 2017, most of the changes are just things normal people can't see.
    11.0 will be adding something that some will probably find to be nice, but "meh"

    That doesn't really excuse the lack of features that people have been requesting. "Behind the scenes" means literally nothing to the end user.. For the reason you mentioned. They don't notice it, so they don't care. 11.0 might come with some new feature, but "meh" I feel won't even begin to describe it.

    I definately get where you are coming from but there are challenges with those great ideas that i really want to see,
    1 i feel like the achievments boat has sailed off. Even if they try to put it on your friend profile, not every game will support it and it will end up like cloud saves did.
    2 i really want themes back but where are they going to put them? a section of the eshop kinda makes sense but they were such a rip off on the 3ds.
    (i also want the rearranged menu style that cfw users get to be brought to ofw)
    3 saves would be amazing but this is nintendo, they wont do it just to stop the tiny amount of cheaters that actually affect online play. Maybe it could be like the 3ds where most software supported it but you had 10 slots? or are cloud saves the evolution?
    anyway love the ideas good job.

    Vulkan has been supported since like, before 1.0.0 :thonk:

    They're still big updates, regardless of what users see.

    I'm going to sit back and wait to see if SXOS/Atmosphere is 100% supported and all home brew works before updating there really isn't really any notable games coming out that is even worth the update. On my legit switch lite I'll update right away
