    Hi All

    Thanks to my son who managed to get my Switch banned by going online when running CFW my console has a Cert Ban

    I have updated latest NSP Updates for MK8 and Mario Tennis, I now need to update to FW 6.0 from 5.1

    However Nintendo wont let me update. Can anyone please advise how I can update my FW not using Ninty Servers?


    TIA

    use choidujournx. But don't update yet. AFAIK, no games need 6.0.0 as of now.

    I am now officially screwed

    I updated using ChoiDujor, and the console boots into 6.0, when you pop in a SD card it requires another System Update before the SD card is usable so basically my console is a brick now as i cannot use SD cards!!

    If anyone knows a way around this please let me know

    Have you tried formatting the card? And thats a little confusing because the card should be inserted before you boot. Are you saying when you power the unit on with SD inserted, when it boots to horizon home screen you get a update nag that wont let you do anything else?

    I had an ExFAT formatted Sd, but stupidly chose the non EXFAT FW

    If i format the card back to be FAT32 and copy contents back on i should be ok?

    Yes. Or you can reinstall the update but this time with exfat support.

    You can also take the SD Card update with ChoiDujor As for as I know. So its not a brick at all trust me.

    SX OS 2.0 has (finally) working layerdfs, so the problem might be on your side.

    you installed the update without selecting to include exfat support, not the end of the world.

    Are you using ones that are supported on the FW version you are running? (Might be a daft question)

    Tbh... even those updates dont REALLY need 6.0. You could have used tinfoil to ignore the required fw and just stayed on 5.1....
