Ready for an update? Nintendo has just pushed out a new firmware for the Switch, bringing the system's software version up to 12.0.1. Per usual, "officially", this is just a stability update, so keep an eye out and wait to see what's really under the hood before you update your Switch, if you care about homebrew.

Ver. 12.0.1 (Released April 19, 2021)
General system stability improvements to enhance the user's experience.

Yeah but now that the foundation is there, could it be implemented via atmosphere?

Potentially. I'm pretty sure they could add the functionality via Atmosphere regardless of what Nintendo added to the OS, since they're using generic off-the-shelf parts for the Switch's bluetooth connection. The real question is if anyone wants to implement it.

Just putting this out here. I updated to 12.0.1 and the update didn't break atmosphere. Everything is working fine except connecting to the internet. The switch would connect to my router but not to the internet and give an error message saying "Unable to Connect to the Network." Not sure if it is the update that is causing this or I did something wrong when updating. Anyways, there wasn't much confirmation on whether or not this update would fully work so I made a mistake updating it :wacko:.

EDIT: Okay, there was something wrong with the old host file and I just had to replace it. Everything works fine.

It looks morte than you are using 90ND DNS protection.

I'm not using 90DNS, so I'm not sure what's wrong. It may have to do with the BSD socket thing that was updated with 12.0.1. I have no idea what that is though

EDIT: Disregard all this, I'm just being dumb. I had an old host file that needed to be replaced.

    And I'm still on Batman: Arkham City. Such a good game. Mr Freeze's boss fight is hard and extensive, we're currently at a point where whoever gets the next strike wins. If I miss I'll lose another 30 mins at least.

    Does anyone happen to know if the gecko code handler will always be in the same location? It would be useful if you could call into it's own subroutines in ASM codes.
    Gift
  • FAST6191 @ FAST6191:
    Are there any codes that modify the handler to do fun extras like there are for DS codes?
    Gift
  • gudenau @ gudenau:
    I don't see why you would need that, Gecko just allows you to do ASM directly instead of needing to make codes to add new code types.

  • gudenau @ gudenau:
    There is nothing stopping you from doing that though.

  • FAST6191 @ FAST6191:
    I was thinking more if there were (some of the DS stuff allowing I think it was different boolean masks than stock) then it would confirm that.

  • gudenau @ gudenau:
    Some of the later DS stuff was pretty impressive. I do want to figure out how some of the lower level stuff worked one of these days.
