Shorter than 1 month, the Nintendo Switch firmware version updated to 7.0.1 today, on this new Switch firmware console, can the Xecuter SX Pro or SX OS CFW work? Also how about using StargateNX to download free games on the Switch V7.0.1? Let me show you the updates and hacking status of firmware 7.0.1 here, so you can know the answers.
Updates of Nintendo Switch 7.0.1
Switch 7.0.1 firmware is a minor update for Switch today. So, do not expect to receive anything major from this update. The only thing Nintendo fixed was an issue related to reconnecting Pokemon Let’s Go to the Pokemon GO app.
Aside from some bug fixes made to Pokemon Let’s Go, this update merely serves as yet another generic “general system stability improvements” type of update. No wonder why the new firmware version is just 0.1 rather than a full jump to a 7.1. Regardless, you’ll need this update to do things like accessing the eShop, so skipping it isn’t much of an option.
The official patch notes can be seen down below.
General system stability improvements to enhance the user’s experience, including:
Resolved an issue where the Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! games cannot reconnect to the Pokémon GO app if the game software was closed after pairing with the app.
