    Confirmed changelog of firmware 6.0 as of 9/20/18
    There has been many rumors about a future firmware update for the Switch looming on the horizon (pun intended). From garyopa's words of wisdom...
    garyopa's prophecy
    ...to more detailed changelogs found in that Discord server...(which has been mostly debunked)
    Order Given
    Now I'm not here to tell you whether these changes are real or not (despite how trustworthy one of the sources is). But the last firmware update was back in the end of May and a lot has changed in the hacking scene while Nintendo has remained mostly silent. Not to mention that while the exploit itself cannot be patched through a firmware update, Nintendo CAN patch everything that follows after the exploit so any number of things can be broken in a future firmware update. A good example of this is the 11.8 update on the 3DS recently that broke Luma. However much like how Luma was updated to work with 11.8, developers can eventually do the same with all of the hacks/CFW that get patched in 6.0 or whatever future firmware update Nintendo releases. The point I am trying to convey is do NOT update to a new firmware immediately.

    EDIT: Hexkyz kindly provided us with some tweets adding more support to the existence of 6.0 that you can find below:

    EDIT 2: Hexkyz has provided us with some more technical changes to firmware 6.0 now that its been "leaked":
    Stability Updates

    Jesus, I don't see myself ever using any of the online features but I don't want to give up the option entirely... I am now rethinking g that decision with all these new checks. It seems easier to just say screw, take the ban, and not have to worry about any of this ever again.

    sounds like having 2 consoles now is not a funny joke but a way to go ( especially for superbanned people :) )

    Can we get a confirmation from an actual trustworthy member?
    Gary has a long history of false claims and I see no reason to take anything he says as true until proven otherwise

    Almost none of these supposed leaks make much sense. Devs don't even have access to the retail facing CDN so what exactly would a beta leak...?

    how long did it take for TX to support card 2 type games? 1 week? lol I already have enough games for the next +2 years, so I have time and they WILL support card 3 games... and also, I dont think all games will be card 3 type games, only a selected few, just like card 2. lol

    Hmm so hacks are becoming not so future proof like the claims always were by cough cough without emunand. Emunand was always that should have happened at the beginning and not this late !

    Gary is not the source, the source is an actual dev that is working on a game, they already have beta version is 6.0.

    You can't compare because type 1 & type 2 were similar, you have no idea what type 3 actually is.

    I don't know why nintendo would bother making any more type 1 or type 2 cards, but until someone finds an exploit back into FW 6.0 then it won't matter anyway.

    fusee gelee is future proof, it's the payloads that need updating. This was always going to be the case. Atmosphere will need constant updating moving forward whether it has emunand or not.

    Honestly I wish there was more than just a claim from him. Gary has a long history of making statements "on behalf of devs" and the statements being completely wrong. Sorry to say this, but it's safer to treat any statements from Gary with a healthy dose of skepticism until proven otherwise
