Hello, it appears the link to FW 8.0.1 is down. Is there another link? Also, I just got in my sx equipment and haven't installed anything yet. Is this the preferred method to update from 7.0.1 to 8.0.1? If there is another way can someone point me to those instructions, pls. thx

If you need 8.0.1, use the link provided. But go with @optantic warning if you are thinking about going higher than that.

Hi, can I delete the previously created Firmware folder after the update?
Once you update to the firmware of your choice, and you completed the process. You no longer need the Firmware folder and files you created prior.

So is this why I’m getting “a system update is required to use this software” after I installed Ultimate alliance 3? I need to update the switch software?

Hi

I have downloaded Firmware 8.1.0. I checked with MD5 and have the correct A20D0B5E964055B1BC4053F1BFE77396
Once I unzip it, I have 213 directories named xxxsomenumbers.nca and inside each a 00 file
This doesn't look like the previos firmwares that had .nca files not directories
Is this correct?

Will be using ChoidujourNX 1.0.2
