I was spamming "A" and fell victim to the SuperNag.

Now I'm part of the 5.1 club. The annoying SuperNag got me and I accidentally hit the update button. I don't know if I should be happy or sad right now that I lost 4.1.0 stock firmware. I guess the plus side is that I can finally play games larger than 4GB since I can use exFAT now.

No idea how it updated when I was on Airplane mode with my Wifi settings already deleted... sigh

Does anyone here know if the SuperNag issue will be gone forever now that I accidentally updated to 5.1? Like if a new update higher than 5.1 comes, will the SuperNag return? I'm so scared to accidentally update again if SuperNag returns.

Yup, I got the Super Nag while I was on airplane mode without being connected to wifi (already deleted my wifi settings), I was also on SXOS when this happened. The only reason I connected to wifi when I first got my switch was because I thought wifi was necessary to use joycons wirelessly, I didn't know there was bluetooth for joycons. I'm thinking Nintendo must of somehow logged and saved the update within the system when I connected to wifi for the first time, so even when I deleted my wifi settings and was on airplane mode, it still updated when I accidentally clicked it.

EDIT: Also i'm not sure what you mean by legit game cart. I don't have a single legit purchased game. I was trying to launch an xci file of ARMS but I clicked update by accident when the SuperNag popped up

Run Gag order to remove the super update nag

Do you know if this is still necessary for me to use anymore now that I'm already on 5.1? I don't get the Supernag notification anymore but im just scared it will return in the future.

Depends on what the next firmware update introduces. I remember when 5.1 first came out it broke the homebrew menu everyone had been using so people were advised not to update. Another example is the 3DS and 11.8 which reportedly broke Luma. Although the fixes for both were relatively simple and implemented rather quickly, its not always a good idea to immediately update when a new system firmware comes out.

I believe booting via Hekate will bypass the fuse burn.
Doesn't negate the fact that the fuses burned, and would need hekate now forever because it can't boot with stock loader.

Not that it matters, who fucking cares. Stay on 5.1.0, no need for running lower firmware.

I accidentally updated from 3.0 to 3.0.1 I didn't know the SMO cart was in the switch and I was spamming the button drunk at 2 am last night. Oh well, I'll still get warmboot eventually....

So....what exactly is this SuperNag?
The normal update nag occurs when your console has downloaded a system update and tells you to install it ASAP. The super update nag is when the console connects to the Internet which triggers a flag letting the console know its not on the latest firmware. Then whenever you try to use anything that uses online functionality, the system will remind you there's an update for the firmware. And what makes this update even more annoying is that it can't be removed like the normal nag by going into maintenance mode. We have to hack the console to remove it.

Because they are already burnt from OFW update. Going back down won't solve much.
I don't understand. The whole point of choidujour is to update your console without burning fuses and utilize autorcm to prevent stepping into official horizon. By returning to your former firmware, no fuses should be burned.
