    Quick question: If Nintendo hasn't patched the PegaSwitch exploit, could they be pulling a shenanigan where the update deliberately leaves it unpatched only to automatically fix itself after certain criteria have been met (such as a month or two passing)?

    False sense of security. Everybody updates to the latest version then BOOM the fix kicks in, and you cannot downgrade.

    Nintendo doesn't care about tricking people into updating. The extra work into making this time bomb work correctly could be spent doing literally anything else productive, not to mention putting time bombs in your software is extremely dangerous since they are very complicated and difficult to get right.
