    Im on the latest update 5.1.0 i just homebrewed my nintendo switch using hakate and injecting the payload
    I noticed that i cannot access online using the costum dns settings
    (I was on update 5.1.0 while i did all of this)

    So i have several questions

    1)Is the dns settings im using compatible with 5.1.0?

    2)Does switchappstore homebrew application require Wi-Fi to launch?

    3)Since the dns settings block update method deletes update data Can i update my nintendo switch and still boot into cfw to use the homebrew menu?

    So far ive been doing everything offline.

    I gues on earth.
    1. Which DNS do you mean? Update block or switchbrew DNS? (Both should be btw)
    2. Yes.
    3. Yes, once the "cfw" is made compatible with new fw (whenever that comes)

    I used this guide https://switch.hacks.guide/blocking-updates to block updates
    And realized that i couldnt connect to online to play online games even though the guide says you should be able to block updates while still being able to play online

    Also For the third question so that means if i update my switch and try to inject the payload i wont be able to access homebrew menu?

    You will be able to do it, but it might not be supported for few days once new fw with big changes comes.
    The flash itself (RCM and payload) is independent of your FW.
