    I wonder though...
    SciresM said something similar when CFW 6.2 hit (that it might take long) and look where we are.
    I think the Switch scene is moving too fast for Nintendo to handle.

    Yeah. I sometimes wonder how much of Nintendo's firmware focus and budget is devoted to anti-piracy measures vs. new features or other optimizations other than "system stability"

    That's it!? That's all we get!? I'm disappointed... when there are MAJOR updates, I EXPECT NEW features, not useless "stability" updates! I want to do more with my switch! I don't want a stable video game system, I want a more FUNCTIONAL system! If we are going to get a brand new version, at least have the common decency to make an update an actual UPDATE! Nintendo already botched version 10 of the Nintendo 3DS by literally adding NOTHING new to the handheld, so if they are going to push a new Switch update that fixes exploits, just leave it at 6! New icons THEY made (much less 6 of them!) are not a new feature! How about giving us the ability to make our OWN icons from the screenshots we took? Anything but stability changes on an X.0.0 update!

    There were also new languages and such. Means nothing for us here, but extends the user base to literally millions of more people. I’d say that’s pretty major (from a business perspective).

    At least, Nintendo would NEVER able to patch the bootrom in unpatched Switch, so if CFW is unavailable so we will likely to see a save manager to export and inject the save in bootrom.

    if I ever update I hope the 7.0 update becomes the next 4.1 update to be on. If whatever changes were made have a flaw in them of coarse.

    That's generally how it goes, so I image they are already finding bugs

    Oh you mean officially the console demands you to update to 7.0 to download the 2.0 smash's update? Because i downloaded the update from other source and installed it. i can play it in my current version 6.2

    Some of us don't want to use NSP to minimize the ban risk for console, so some of us used homebrew as limited to save editing and save sharing only.

    Atmosphere 7.0.0 bring-your-own-keys basic support: done.

    It may take a few days to a week or two for me to get non-bring-your-own-keys support working, but it's a work in progress. :)

    This is my situation. I already understand we r not suppose to update to 7.0 if wanted to continue to use cfw.
    Before I clear my wifi setting, I did receive notifications to prompt to update firmware. Of course I ignore it & clear my wifi setting.
    I’m in offline mode. Yeah I’m safe, but that’s not the case.
    Whenever a game started, there always a notification that will prompt to update. I accidentally click on that. What happen is it go thru a restart and after that I cannot boot to sxos.
    In original boot, it prompt me again to update 7.0 to use the microSD card. I believe I didn’t go thru a full update, but a half update also don’t allow me to boot cfw.

    Weird, why would the switch ask for another exfat update? Unless it can now detect piracy and homebrew inside your sd card.
