I think this comment was aimed at playing online, not at going online at all. I highly doubt that Nintendo will ever disallow users to update their Switch just because they are on 1.0.0

Do not update from 1.0.0 if you want custom firmware/emunand!

1.0.0 is the only publicly known firmware with a kernel and trustzone exploit, that combined will allow for custom firmware.
SciresM has made it his goal to get emuNAND working this year on 1.0.0, which will allow you to play newer games from 1.0.0 without updating.

Thank you all for your replays, i will stay on 1.0.0 FW for now ...
but why does we have a pined thread recommending to update 3.0.0 when you are in lower firmware ? it seems misleading to me

The spread of information is very convoluted at the moment due to several large announcements and teasers. But the lower your firmware the better, and right now 1.0.0 is the golden firmware.

1.0.0 > 2.X.0 > 3.0.0
If anyone reading this is on 2.X.0 and thinking of updating, hold off. SciresM has mentioned on the Reswitched Discord that there is a good reason not to jump to 3.0.0.

    There are very few people I just have just an immense dislike of and he's one of those very few people, the only other example is Gene Simmons. My musician uncle on my mother's side of the family actually met Gene once during some event and said he was the most unpleasant person to be around.
