    Should I go ahead and do it? Did it ask for anyone else? I got the XCI and the update file, but I haven’t played the game yet cause it’s forcing me to system update

    Here is my take on it. Since it requires 6.0, i wouldn't be surprised that the games coming out in Nov + is going to require 6.0. So I bit the bullet and upgraded my Switch to the 6.01 or whatever the latest version is. Haven't been having a problem.

    Use tinfoil to install the nsp and it will remove the firmware requirement.

    I bit the bullet and went from 5.1 to 6.0.1.
    Starlink + update nsp plays fine. In fact I've got no issues with any games (using SX OS 2.0.1).
    Realistically, all big games from now on will require a minimum of 6.0, so you might as well update!

    star link can still run on firmware 5.x.x if you install it using tinfoil's ignore firmware requirement

    until just a while ago, games requiring firmware 5.0.0 and above can still running on 4.0.0-4.1.0. even updates that need 6.0.0 can still be used on 4.0.0
    I'd say we have another month or 2 until games actually require firmware 6.0.0

    I need to start looking into tinfoil tbh, I’ve been relying on just SX OS, I feel like I’m missing out a lot

    All you need to do is create a folder on your sd called switch.

    Place the tinfoil nro in it and run it once from the homebrew tab in sx os.

    From then on put your nsps in the newly created tinfoil/nsp folder.

    Run tinfoil from the homebrew tab and install your nsps.

    so far, all the games can be had on a lower version if you skipped the firmware requirement on tinfoil. least, its true for 5.0.1 switch firmware.

    again, check the masterkey used by the game
    you still can't play games if it requires newer masterkey. fortunately games released until today still using masterkey that available since 5.0.0

    We actuallly dont care about this. The reason is simple. We have a OFW on a lower version and CFW in the highest. We just use emuNand. Simple as that

    Who exactly is 'we' you speak of? I was one of the first preorders for sx pro, and I want the firmware check feature. Next time don't speak for the world eh?

    I didn't realize I was part of a hivemind. I didn't realize loler55 is able to tell me what I need and don't need.
