[UPDATE] Nintendo Switch firmware update version 12.0.3 available, only to be pulled after issues

Untitled.png

Are you ready to rumble? The Switch sure isn't, because it's so stable. A brand new firmware update has been pushed out, bringing the Nintendo hybrid system to software version 12.0.3. As usual, the patch notes don't offer a single bit of insight as to what this update brings to the table, so if you're curious about what's going on under the hood, be sure to wait it out and get the all-clear from the usual knowledgable sources and devs.

Ver. 12.0.3 (Released June 7, 2021)
General system stability improvements to enhance the user's experience.

:arrow: Source

UPDATE: SciresM has commented on the matter. It appears Atmosphere users will need an update, which will happen soon, likely sometime tomorrow.


UPDATE 2: Reports are going around that the update has been pulled, as it causes issues with downloading games from the eShop. Supposedly, the update is still live on Nintendo's servers, but Switch consoles now default back to seeing 12.0.2 as the most recent update. Be wary of any issues, if you did update, and share any experiences. Nintendo still has the 12.0.3 announcement post live on their official website.

Idon't get it. At one end we got slimeball distributors and scalpers, trying to justify selling rtx 3080s for $3k USD each, but nobody wants to make cfw for a modern Switch? Why?

Not like people doesn't want to, there is just no bug to exploit for software based CFW entrypoint on patched, and mariko unit.

There's always a bug in everything that runs any type of software. It's just that no one has published one publicly yet for the switch.

It appears to be back again. I just updated my Lite to 12.0.3.
I assume if it is up for the lite it is also up for the standard switch, now my question is if they changed anything on the firmware or if it is exactly the same as it was before the pull?

A new update is up right now

Update:
I took the plunge to see if they fixed it.
They didn't.
Do not download this update because it will make downloading from the eShop impossible.
According to a tweet from the Japanese switch support account, installing stuff from the microsd card is impossible so I have no idea how they will fix this.

Why they pushed this broken update out the door again will be a mystery to me though.
The backlash will hit them really hard in a week when the e3 sale starts, so I expect it to be fixed by then.

Update:
I found a workaround
Cancelling and restarting the download a bunch of times will get it to download at some point apparently

I just updated my hackable system (is atmosphere updated yet?). I'm not hacked though. I did so to download game builder garage. it did in fact error when I tried to download the game. it error'd instantly, but the tile appeared. using the cloud download thing on the tile downloaded the game correctly. I don't know if that was a fluke or not. there's one more switch I need to download it to, so I guess we'll see. I was able to download the save from my other switch, and it said I needed to update my controllers, so I did that as well, while in game, and doing all that as well as starting the game worked, no problem. however, that initial failure has me worried.

can't tell if it's the update or the eshop that's screwed up. I'll know if my issue was a fluke when I download game builder garage to my Mario switch.

that's the only thing that worked for me when I downloaded game builder garage. the only other thing I tried was downloading directly from the eshop. btw, Nintendo suggests deleting network settings, then reinputting them. dunno if it will work though.
