    I installed and tried to play a couple of new games like NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 and Starlink Battle for Atlas. But they require the new firmware. How can I bypass this?

    I already install them with Devmenu. What's the point of using Tinfoil?

    But is there a way to Play Games that need 5.01 or later on 4.1.0 ?
    Tinfoil says everytime when i try to install the NSP that i need a higher firmware.
    Is there a Fix for that ?

    Tinfoil's Ignore Required Firmware Version feature reduces all .NSP files to the lowest firmware of their masterkey encryption. There is no way to bypass this.

    If a game is encrypted with masterkey revision 4 which is found on firmwares 5.X then yes, you will have to update your firmware to a 5.X firmware in order to play that game.
