    There is usually a short grace period where you can still access some online before getting forced to update. You have about a week, if that.

    It's good but you'll probably need to have a lot of patience because it will be the latest fw to get the good stuff, probably even next year. Except if Team Xecuter decides to finally release their chip.

    If I update:
    • I can add Facebook and Twitter friends to my Friend List
    • I can choose from 24 new ARMS and Yoshi icons
    • I won't be able to get homebrew
    If I don't update:
    • I can be able to get homebrew on my Switch when an exploit for 4.1.0 comes out
    Welp, I'm screwed.

    Even if they make an emunand they will still likely be stuck at that firmware. New updates are usually encrypted and and if the newer firmware doesnt have a working exploit (or the developers have managed to calculate the private signing keys) that firmware cant be decrypted an made to run. In short all you people with such hype about emunand are in for an unpleasant suprise if these developers dont have any way to decrypt the 5.0 kernel.

    Somewhere, out there...
    Hi guys. My Switch is on 4.1.0 and have DNS set to Manual for update blocking. Anyway, I purchased and pre-installed Kirby last week, but worried about being able to play it this Friday on release day. When I click on icon, it connects to internet to check release date. With DNS set to Manual for update blocking, what should I do? Doesn't the Manual DNS for update blocking also blocks any connection to internet? Should I be worried about not being able to play Kirby? I don't want to update to 5.0... Thoughts and help appreciated :)

    It's unlikely that all of their exploit chain is patched. Even if this is the case, most devs have a backup that they haven't even talked about yet. We won't know until they do their testing, tell us what's patched, and one of them gives the obligatory cryptic tweet about playing in the firmware. The last part is /s
