    For those who are asking this question and want homebrew (and possibly cfw) STAY ON 3.0.0 Yes its going to be painful to a degree, but several devs have now said that 3.0.1 patches some sort of exploit not known to the public. And if its as big as it's made out to be, then don't update. If you can wait several months without a switch, then you should wait. Plus someone is bound to come up with some sort of hotfix for wifi play/eshop. If you honestly want to update go ahead, I just highly advice against doing so.

    There isn't going to be any homebrew for a long time and it's going to take even longer before we have piracy, no point in staying offline for possibly years IMO, might as well have waited with buying a Switch then.

    So if i keep my Switch at 3.01, eventually they will find an exploit for that?

    Thanks to that firmware nagging, it updated, so I got angry and put it back in the box and yes I did have it so it wouldn't automatically update but it did it, plus the exploit uses a modified webkit hack, so they will likely find a way or another exploit.

    This time I activated airplane mode and disabled online and put it in the box for when 3.01 is hacked, it's better that way since it won't download the update and I won't accidentally update.

    Read the change log on switchbrew, all keys were changed. They don't have access to 3.0.1 they would have to decrypt it from scratch again. Stay on 3.0 if you want an exploit.

    there isn't a way yet. if you wait patiently, somebody within a couple of weeks may come up with a solution.

    If you want to play online, update. If you don't care about online, don't update. Simple.

    I just updated, the games I play the most - Mariokart and Arms - need online. Maybe it's a sign of getting older but I'm losing the energy to wait for exploits etc.

    Good luck keeping your system on old firmware for a whole year or maybe more. Most of you think that haXxorZ will be released in the next coming weeks lol.

    Lol at all of you

    i personally will always update up until there is a big warning everywhere not to update the switch anymore, hinting at us not to update as there is a possible homebrew/hax sort of thing coming.

    I just bought a new switch and it comes in tomorrow. More than likely it is on firmware 1.0? So what would someone do in my situation. stay in 1.0 or update to 3.0.1 and wait/hope for the best. please advice :unsure:
