    I just tried to go online, it says that I have to update my system now to play online or access eshop.

    Any bypass? Or is this new?

    AFAIK its new and you'll need to play recent games, up to you if you wanna update or not.

    Huh, I had played online with the previous firmware version about 1/2 hour ago, but now, MK8D online requires the update. Interesting.

    You can still play games offline if you turn on airplane mode then restart the system.
    Can't do anything online though. Yellows8 even got locked out of 2.1 webkithax because of this. He will have to update.

    Bummer, looks like Nintendo got caught up with their security finally.
    I do wonder though if this can just be bypassed with another fiddler though. That would be hilarious.

    I'd assume there is nothing that can actually stop people from playing online/offline that's written in the system at the moment. Saying its mandatory to update like on the 3ds in order to use software or play online.

    I just wanted to add that I bought Zelda Breath of the Wild today. I had waited because i couldn't get a switch at launch and then didn't want to go online with it when I first got it. I know that game needs updates. Anywho. Since I am on 2.3 I don't want to system update. I was worried I wouldn't be able to update the game itself but turns out I was able to. It never asked me to update the console. I updated the game to 1.2.0 and then just took it back offline. All went well. Posting for anyone else in similar situation...

    You're missing out a lot by not updating to 3xx which is a really huge firmware update that adds a lot of value to the Switch. I get that you want to leave it on the lowest firmware so whenever there's a hack you'll be able to install but how likely is that gonna turn up any time soon? I dunno but probably in a few years.

    Nintendo is finally doing right by its customers and allowing us to use the controllers we want. If only they'd fix that shitty, confusing, mess of an online voice-chat service they've got coming up...

    Thanks so much for sharing this information. Knowledge is power.

    In terms of the fixes in 3.0 I am not against having them but well. I see big things for the switch in the future. Big things. That screen is begging for homebrew like mugen. To play final fantasy 3 on it man oh man. Policenauts? My head just spins. Nintendont? With all the features touted in the latest update it is a shame. Maybe I need 2 switches one for online one for hax. Mario Odyssey looks frigging amazing. That will be me first tear shed if 2.3 will not run it. I know I am looking at potentially a couple of years till homebrew. Piracy isn't super appealing to me. I know when it is nintendo they make quality games and I am willing to pay for those cute little cartridges. It's the possibilities of the system once hacked that have me determined.
