    Hi fellow Switch users!
    Hope you're all enjoying your new console!

    Prior to selling my Wii U last year, I was using Loadiine and Tubehax DNS to block updates.
    Since then that system has really been opened up!

    Now that the Switch has seen some progress in the Hacking & Homebrew scene, can I run Tubehax DNS to again block updates? If I use the same address, will that still work?

    I've seen some other releases - DNSSwitch4All, etc - are these the alternative to Tubehax now?

    Basically, I'm after something nice and simple while we patiently wait for the good stuff to start appearing.

    Thank you in advance.

    I doubt that it uses the same servers.

    Sniff the traffic with Wireshark when checking for an update and block accordingly.

    Tubehax DNS died a while back. There are replacements in the Wii U hack forum here on gbatemp.

    I think it's back now. Unless it died again?

    Oh. It's possibly back. I didn't check anymore after I moved to some others.

    Tube Hax was always shit.
    Nintendo Switch still uses the same DEV 3,
    So If you want to block Switch Updates "Set your DNS to the Nintendo Development server at 205.166.76.187" -x
    [Tested and confirm working]

    So the URLs aren't only revealed during actual updates only?

    That's good. When I asked this question I just kept getting trolled.

    The update function should query the domain(s) used regardless of there being an update or not. It obviously has to check for one some way or another.

    DNSwitch4All will work like tubehax and block updates.

    Seriously, I checked what network this IP is from, and the answer is that it is owned by NoA (btw the NERD research department also has an IP from that network).
    Just a question: How did you find it ?

    EDIT: Now I understand it's Ryan. + no there isn't any switch dev3 server, I think they changed DNS or use another prefix
