    In the section, where you explain some terms you say "Vulcan" although it is called "Vulkan".

    Earth, bro-dude.
    Thanks much. I often can't fully explain (without visual references) Switch hacks and this will bridge the gap. 10/10+1 FAQ; can't wait to see how this evolves.

    Wow! I actually learnt more here (size of the cfw being 32 gb) than I did reading so many posts! Thank you very much for your effort!

    Upcoming update regarding TX will be coming tonight, long day. Sorry I've been slow, had my MCAT today so I'm finally free and can dedicate more time to sprucing this up.

    I'm currently on 5.0.2
    While trying to configure the dns (to block firmware updates, using the faq), it seems that it redirect me to a page where i can choose to run or install the homebrew channel?

    Yeah that only works for 3.0.0, not 5.0.2 so it doesn't really mean anything for you. In fact, you should probably just disregard that DNS and use Switchbru's DNS instead. It blocks updates but it also lets you access the hidden web browser with a little extra features as well. However if you need to use the eShop or play online multiplayer you will need to remove the DNS settings and put it back to normal. You can only get the homebrew launcher on 5.0.2 by using the hekate payload while you're in the tegra rcm mode which is very experimental and only if you want to test out what's available so far, otherwise you can just wait for Atmosphere to release sometime later this summer.

    Hi,

    Thank for your reply.
    I currently only playing rocket league (my sun minecraft online).
    Is the online thing only restricted to nintendo online game servers?
    (Tested the Switchbru dns which redirect me to google. It's nice to browse)
    But is it possible at this point to config an dns which only blocks the firmware updates?

    Just want to avoid been updated.
