Nintendo Switch FW Update 7.0.0 is out & could block CFW!!

Nintendo Switch FW Update 7.0.0 is out and it could block all CFW as of now, DO NOT UPDATE to 7.0.0 if you like to keep using CFW.

Just as always its always better to be safe than sorry and just wait for the dev’s to figure out what Nintendo has done to try and block them. Now, this could take a while to crack open but probably not as these devs are so clever at bypassing Nintendo Switch security nowadays. So be patient and wait for the ok to update to 7.0.0 if you like using CFW on the Switch.


As I wrote this post, not even more than 2mins have gone by and they have already cracked FW 7.0.0. Now, all we have to do is wait for the CFW updates to start popping up before updating to FW7.0.0 but do not update until you see that new CFW has been released for FW7.0.0.


Once again do not update to 7.0.0 make sure you turn on airplane mode or use a DNS so you don’t accidentally update!
