    I skimmed, briefly, but I didn't see a thread discussing URLs to block to prevent Switch updates. Do we know yet?

    Why would we want to block updates? Is on version 2.0.0, like since day one, and all the important stuff that is supposed to be coming with releases has yet to come. I'm just curious why is of interest so early. :unsure:

    Because in the case a hacker says to ever says "STAY ON 2.0!" people want to ensure they stay on 2.0 by blocking updates.

    Do you ask for car insurance after the car accident?

    The scene/community is already researching and working on entry points and exploits for 2.0.0. Since we have NO clue what a new update will contain, but we're pretty-sure N-tendo is watching, we can safely assume that any patch at this point will work against the current research.

    use a proxy, or wireshark, and see which URL is triggered when checking for updates.
    there's probably more than one URL, but the first one will be to get data to know if a new update is available (it might also be the same than game updates availability, for example on WiiU it's Tagaya's server to check for game+console updates, and cdn to download it).

    the firmware file will probably be located on another server. someone with a non-updated switch will have to check the url.

    All I got so far...

    NOTE: These URLs are encrypted hence port 443. Some consumer routers do not let you enter a port in your blocking interface you may have to use HTTPS:// instead.

    http://aqua.hac.lp1.d4c.nintendo.net:443
    http://receive-lp1.dg.srv.nintendo.net:443
    http://bcat-data-lp1.cdn.nintendo.net:443
    http://bcat-list-lp1.cdn.nintendo.net:443
    http://tagaya.hac.lp1.eshop.nintendo.net:443
    http://dauth-lp1.ndas.srv.nintendo.net:443

    EDIT: URLs related to eshop, how did google get in there those sneaky buggers!

    http://bugyo.hac.lp1.eshop.nintendo.net:443
    http://accounts.nintendo.com:443
    http://www.google-analytics.com:443
    http://ecs-lp1.hac.shop.nintendo.net:443

    Update Server: Block This URL!

    Then you didn't block them.

    I can confirm if you block this one:

    http://sun.hac.lp1.d4c.nintendo.net:443

    You will not get the update nag or be able to access update server. Everything else functions fine.

    You will have to restart once blocking in order to get rid of the nag.

    I blocked them on my router. P.s every time i put it in on my router with http://(adress here) it claims its a invalid. So I trimmed out the http://
    EDIT:still not working I verified and check. I'm using block sites and set it to always. so I honestly don't see what I'm doing wrong.

    idk, works fine for me and others as well. Your problem is either the router, PEBKAC, or ID-10T. /s

    If you use DNSwitch the updates will be blocked

    try *nintendo.net or *.nintendo.net, and does your router have a site AND a url block setting?

    As I was trying to explain, if you are using a "site" blocker I believe it's meant to block the entire site, my old router had 2 options, block entire site or block urls. If you are entering a url into a site block interface I don't think it will work, you have to enter the core domain (eg nintendo.net) with no prefix.

    If you router has a url blocking page then you can enter the exact url in there. If not you can set up fiddler proxy to block just the urls you want to block, draw back of that is it has to be running in order for you to access other stuff like friends and eshop etc.

    As it stands right now all you need to block is:

    http://sun.hac.lp1.d4c.nintendo.net:443

    You can also set your dns to a server that blocks them for you.

    One server is 205.166.76.187 as per this thread:

    I set the dns. that worked. and my router does allow siteblocking. In fact I used it to block wiiu updates with no problems. but those addresses you gave just don't work. SO IDK. But funny enough the switch forgets updates apon powering off. (assuming you just accidently downloaded them and not installed them)

    I'm sorry but it's confirmed working. It seems to be your router that's not working. If all else fails just change your dns server to the one in that thread.

    205.166.76.187

    There is an auto-update setting that you can enable/disable.

    Make sure you're not using a DNS server; IE OpenDNS. Google DNS may work though.

    I find it funny, that there is a Auto Update option. When with the 3DS, and Wii U; it shoves an update down your throat.
