    Basically firmware that is parts of different firmware versions. This normally happens when a user tries to downgrade. Though their system will say 9.2 or whatever part of it will still have system titles from 11.2 or whatever firmware they were on before. This casues issues as certain features will not work as expected. Best way to correct is to go into recovery mode and download the latest version form nintendo's server.

    What is search function?

    Seriously, this question has been asked and answered many, many times.

    It's not like frankenfirmware is a common word, you won't have pages and pages of posts to sift through. It's pure laziness.

    If it bothers you that much, then don't reply. It's that simple

    If no one pulls you up on it, how will you ever learn?

    Spoon feeding is for babies and really old people, the bit in between you're expected to do yourself.

    The sooner you realise that, the sooner you can start living a more fulfilling life. :teach:

    Okay, okay, old people speech over. Have a moderately fulfilling day :grog:
