Nintendo Switch 5.0.2 update released
Nintendo have released Switch firmware update 5.0.2 yesterday.
The official changelog mentions a few bugs fixes, as follows:
- General system stability improvements to enhance the user’s experience, including:
- Resolved an issue that caused motion controls to respond incorrectly when playing games that use the feature
- Resolved an issue that caused user icons for recommended friends to not display correctly
The automated diff page maintained by Yellows8 mentions that the following titles have been updated as part of this firmware:
- Sysupdate titlelisting title
- System Version Title
- “myPage” sysapplet
There’s not much information circulating about this update, and from a hacking perspective it seems fairly harmless. However, and as is always the case, if you intend to hack your Nintendo Switch, we recommend to stay on as low a firmware as you can. It’s always a possibility to upgrade, rarely (never?) to downgrade.
In the context of the upcoming Fusee Gelee hack though, it is very likely that consoles running on the latest and greatest firmware will be hacked this summer. But I advise not to update until you know that for sure.
