Nintendo Switch firmware update 10.2.0 now live, Atmosphere updated to support it

Gear-NintendoSwitchLite_artwork_05.jpg

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.

Total noob here, if I want a switch for homebrew (emulators, themes and mods) not piracy, which firmware and/or version of switch should I buy? Oh and Idc about online.

We need folders. How does the Switch NOT have folders yet, even the 3DS has.
I want to put my Arcade Archives Games in there and I know many other people do.
I kinda liked the minimalism of the Switch OS at launch especially after the convoluted two screen mess of the Wii U, but it's really lacking. 3DS was fantastic. Theme Shop would print money for Nintendo.

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).

Maybe even Streetpass.

But seriously, I wonder if there are any actual fixes here. When I updated from 10.0 to 10.1 all 4 of my Switches began to experience wireless communication issues. Only two of my Switches are on CFW. The other two are clean and play online.

I update emuNAND on SXOS via the "match local users" feature which, with a few exceptions, works just fine. I update the sysNAND officially then the emuNAND and don't worry about fuses. Because of this none of my Switches, even the offline ones, have any bans. Usually I will only update one of the online Switches online, then use "match local users" on the other 3.

Immediately after the update from 10.0 to 10.1, however, after the system update was completed successfully the 3 Switches recieving the update gave me an error saying there was a communication error and the update of the actual game aborted. Even though all 4 were so close together they were physically touching in a box configuration. I ended up having to do the game update one at a time. Then, back on emuNAND, no problems again until the system update after which point they had communication issues.

This has been a real headache for us since, despite having LAN between all consoles in the house not every game will actually use LAN. Testing in Mario Kart, which has a dedicated LAN mode, we have no communication issues when we play anywhere in the house - even across other rooms. But games like Animal Crossing won't work unless the consoles are close enough to nearly touch, and even then only two at a time. This is more of a pain for us since only two of our consoles can go online to play that way.

I'm genuinely curious to see if the latest update fixes these communication problems, although it would be great if there was some way to force the switch to use LAN instead of wireless when available. I don't mean online LAN (we already have that). I mean a setting that makes the Switch think it's communicating wirelessly when it's really communicating wired for any game that is otherwise wireless only.

So I updated Atmosphere and then updated my firmware. When I launch Hetake I get the message "OLD NYX GUI FOUND THERE WILL BE DRAGONS. UPDATE YOUR BOOTLOADER FOLDER!"

I can then enter hetake and launch the SYSMMC but not the EMUMMC. What did I do wrong?

Yeah exactly. Now that you have more games, the Switch gets cluttered. I also love the clean interface, but it needs folders now to put the games in.

Easiest/fastest way to get one is from eBay. They are pricey though, keep that in mind. Look for a un-pacthed Switch.

It might be cheaper to buy a patched Switch and SX Core. Finding someone near you to install the SX Core might be difficult because of Nintendo taking legal action against them.
