    I am running a hacked Switch with 6.2.0 ReiNX.
    Whenever I try to run a game (DK Tropical Freeze for instance), system is asking for a game update although I deactivated Internet connection (english message is "A new update is available" but in my language it says "An update is available for this software").
    If I push "Start Game", everthing is fine but it is a bit annoying to always get this message everytime I run a game.

    Is it safe to activate Internet connection and update game then shut down Internet again ?

    You can also launch maintance mode by holding - and + while booting your switch...And then just reboot into your cfw, it will get rid of all the update "notifications". But they will reappear anyway as soon as you connect to a wifi (unless you use 90dns, in which case they wont appear since it blocks nindendo stuff). But yeah..you can also just find the latest update and install it as well.

    He said he got update notifications without connecting to the internet, so maintenance mode + CFW won’t work. Afaik the firmware itself dictates if an update for a game is available by checking an offline database that is included in the firmware.

    Mantience mode only clears out system updates afaik, not games. Considering that my system has never touched Nintendo servers, I'm going to go with the offline database idea but im not sure

    why disable internet connection to start with? It will delay the ban, but not stop the ban, you broke the tos, and if you don't want to get banned, you shouldn't had hacked it to start with

    I heard you can restore your unaltered NAND and then go online safely ? Is it wrong ?

    In theory it should be fine, but it still isn't completely known what Nintendo uses to ban people

    Today my Japanese Switch (6.2.0) was even telling that there was a system update ready to be installed. :blink:
    I rebooted into the recovery mode (press both + and - volume buttons) and powered off the Switch again.
    After rebooting all the nags about the updates for all games were also gone.
    I don't know if it works permanently.

    Hate to resurrect the dead here but I get this with every game I install. I'm on the latest version of Atmosphere.

    Nobody knows why this happens? If I have 90DNS is there any way for me to accidentally accept one of these updates?
