    Well fuck Nintendo then, I'll jump trough some hoops if I get CDN banned for the system updates. The game updates and DLC are easy money though.

    FOR NOW. But you have to remember one thing: The DLC and game updates that you can download on certain sites? They all come from CDNSP. And if CDNSP becomes completely unusable...

    Then they will switch to dumping DLC and game updates from a real Switch and uploading those instead, no different than how it was done on the 3DS before CDN downloading existed. And then there will be playloads that just dump DLC/game updates/system updates without booting into the Switch OS or changing anything that could be detected, assuming that is not possible already).

    Things just become less convenient but not impossible. People will just return to downloading from rom sites or rather, forums which post links to third party file uploads. It takes a single legit purchase of software to rip the .nsp or .xci.

    Provided people are willing to do that. Because although those sites DO exist already(I know of a HUGE repository of them), they all come from CDNSP. Only time will tell i suppose

    Before CDNSP people just ripped their games. With recent tools, such as converters, it will just continue without much issue. This is nothing new. Same as before FreeShop on 3DS.

    Normal people shouldn't even care as scene groups (BBB) buy fucked up consoles rip the cert and download as much content as they can anyways, this is no different from the 360 with unbanned KV's dying in 30 minutes to 3 hours of usage.

    I can't believe people are annoyed at not getting something for free. :) I don't blame them for clamping down on this. What did you expect? God forbid people will have to pay for games now and use CFW for homebrew and retro!

    But are actual firmware files a thing you can download (like iOS, for example)? I've never come across one...though I've never looked.

    You can but you'd have to find them on your own

    Right. Just didn’t know if it was an actual thing that could be done. Thanks.

    People will have to be very careful with firmware downloads, make sure you get them from a very trusted source.

    Guess we'll just have to stick to dumped nsps now. Props to Nintendo for at least improving. I need to buy a second switch though before they go full nuclear

    rest assured I would only download the finest artisanal, organic firmware for use on my Switch.

    It has been a while since I read the CDN breakdown and subsequent. 2 days seems kind of long. If they are that hard on things surely they would just download 3 or 4 unique games or do something unique and from a known IP (I assume the CDN tools don't go out through TOR or anything) and note the cert used.

    Do we not have the Nintendo public keys? Even if there were not hashes able to be posted to trusted sites surely they would be able to be used to verify along with games themselves. Also do you expect dodgy firmwares to happen? I am not sure I have seen anything like that before for any previous device despite ample opportunity to do it.
