Before the next Nintendo Switch firmware V6.0.0 formally released, there are many new updates are leaked recently according to a thread in Reddit. Many Switch hackers have found out that Nintendo has already uploaded the Switch 6.0.0 firmware to their servers early before it goes live. They have searched through the files and found out about a number of possible features coming to the Nintendo Switch.

Estimated time of releasing

The Nintendo Switch Online service is due to launch in the second half of the month, so alongside its releasing, a new Nintendo Switch firmware with many new features to accommodate the changes should be updated too by the company. The rumored releasing date is in the next week, maybe on Monday, Steptember 3. 

New Features

The major changes for Nintendo Switch 6.0 firmware should be related to the paid Nintendo Switch Online service. Besides that, according to SciresM, a respected figure in the homebrew and hacking community, a new messaging system will be implemented on Nintendo Switch after the V6.0 is installed. Two web applications will also be added in the update, but no word on what they actually do at this point of time.

The single biggest news to come out of the leak, however, has something to do with Famicom, NES, and SNES controllers. however, you may notice that there is no Gamecube controller there. This is odd considering Nintendo is releasing official Gamecube controller for the Switch later this year.

Here are the Switch V6.0 Firmware New Feature List:

  • Nintendo Switch Online subscription support (Slogan: “More Games. More Features. More Fun.”)
  • Save data backup
  • New profile picture icons: Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker icons: 2x Captain Toad, 2x Toadette, 1x Wingo, 1x Draggadon
  • New controller icons: Famicom, NES, SNES/SFC
  • Mitigations against an unreleased Switch exploit called ‘deja vu’
  • Enhanced telemetry to detect exploit utilities

However, still no youtube, netflix, browser, voice chat, searching friends with names/ign, msg friends, usb save back up, folders, easy way to see what you bought with the eshop library like the library on ps4. 

Will Nintendo Switch V6.0.0 be hacked by SX Pro?

Currently, the SX Pro from Team Xecuter is able to hack any Nintendo Switch firmware version for installing the SX OS CFW, including the most recent V5.1.0. Users of SX Pro can play free Switch games, homebrew Nintendo Switch and save hundreds of Switchroms on the SX OS CFW.

Updated: With the most recent SX OS V1.8, the upcoming V6.0.0 will be hacked too!

We received some feedback from some expert users who are early adopters of the upcoming 6.0 firmware update. It appears we had overlooked something which made SXOS not boot firmware 6.0 for users with an exFAT formatted microSD card.

Oops. Suffice to say, we wasted no time to track down the root cause of this issue and fixed it up for you, still ahead of the official 6.0 release schedule!

Another thing which has been addressed is the incompatibility of the current “layeredFS” implementation with firmware 6.0. SX OS will now automatically disable “layeredFS” support when running on firmware 6.0, preventing any crashes/hangs.

That’s it for now. We’re running out of (reasonable) minor version numbers for SX OS 1… which means we are revving up for the big SX OS 2.0 release! At this point we can’t spoil yet what the next iteration of SX OS has in store for you, but rest assured it will be exciting.

Again, sorry for this minor bug-fix release.

Enjoy the upcoming 6.0 firmware with SX OS.
