    AFAIK the Switch will download updates but constantly ask you if you want to install them. You can delete downloaded updates by launching in recovery mode (power + volume up + volume down)

    Is it possible to manually update to 4.1.0 rather than 5? Is there a way to access eshop right now without going to version 5 ?

    I want to download demo games

    There may be a game cartridge that has a 4.1.0 update on it however I don't believe anyone is aware of one yet.
    There is no way to access the eShop without the latest firmware

    I had auto updates turned off on 4.1. My switch downloaded the update but didn't install it.

    Now whenever I attempt to load a game it prompts me to update.

    Is there a way to remove this so I don't update by accident?

    turn off your switch by holding the power button for 5 seconds, then hold the volume buttons + and - and turn on your switch. It'll enter the recovery menu. Now, restart your switch and you'll be fine. Disconnect every network or turn on flight mode

    Dumb noob question.

    My Switch is in 4.1.0, and has the DNS to block system updates.
    Can I still update games (eg: Super Mario Odyssey) with the internet settings applied?

    you can do that too, but it will pop up every time you turn on the switch and every time you want to play a game

    Yep just realised that after I attempted to update Mario :rofl2:
    Thankfully it fails, so the update block is working :yayswitch:

    What is this "Fiddler" program I read about? Will it help me access the eshop without updating?

    No, it was the program used to access YT, it's no longer used due to the use of the social applet to watch videos.
    It's impossible to access the eshop without updating.
