Once again Nintendo has delivered a new update without delivering new features. As expected it’s mainly aimed at blocking vulnerabilities and exploits. However, it does open up some online play in certain areas and it will also make a few happy around the world.
- Nintendo Switch Online
- Added online play in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, and Peru. This is currently available for free until the paid online service launches in 2018.
- General system stability improvements to enhance the user’s experience
We can recommend two options for this update depending on your stance. If you’re currently on 3.0.0 and care about homebrew development, avoid updating and remove active internet connections. If you’re currently on 3.0.1, certain people have stated there’s a possibility of finding additional vulnerabilities and exploits.
I recommend to don't do it, the 3.0.1 is maybe the last version we could hack, I found some interesting stuff.

If you have missed out of both chances to prepare for homebrew development, do not get discouraged, my friends. The switch is still in early stages of its OS and certain new titles will force users and devs to eventually update. For now, just keep track of the current PSAs and enjoy the love of the game!
