weather I use an xci that includes the update or I use the original xci after nsp install, my switch just turns off (crashes?)

using the newest sx os, current firmware is 8

it needs firmware 9
thanks for the reply.

I also tried a "repack" which was is supposed to be good for 8 and up.

coincidentally enough I was just looking for a good guide for updating my switch to 9 just in case. would you happen to be able to point me in the right direction?

edit: found this one

Some games/updates cannot be patched down. They are hard codded to a specific FW. Some games/updates have a soft code though that doesn't force the newets software.
