    Somewhere, out there...
    I am not sure which System Update I am on for the Switch, but I know it is the one that enabled mSD support. Now that 2.1.0 is out, is it safe to update and not miss out on potential future hacks? I am able to still launch games, but each time it nags me to update system. Thoughts on this appreciated :)

    What hacks? Is been only a month of release. Listen, you gonna miss out on more than hacks, upgrades the system is missing that updates will add. So you want them, you gonna have to update. So far 2.1.0 supposed to fix the web browser exploit but it could potentially fix other issues people have with the system, so is up to you. Other wise you can be one of those people who buy two systems, and save one for hacks while play the other for legit.

    When updates come and start adding who knows what, and if you want it you gonna have to make the choice. Though many people do try to get exploits for the most recent version of things (Wii u, 3ds, wii, psp,) is just a matter of how much people willing to do for it. So relying on others isn't the best option when it comes to exploits. Don't spend $300 for game console and not play it or cripple is usefulness by waiting for exploits that has no set future date. :teach:

    There is no kernel exploit for the Switch. A9LH? Are you messing with us or don't you have a clue what you're talking about?
