Nintendo Switch bricked


Recently, Nintendo updated the Nintendo Switch to version 5.0. While the update is relatively small, it has impacted several Switch users by bricking their consoles. Many switch users who use third party peripherals such as chargers and docks are reporting that their consoles brick after using them.

Nintendo has released a statement saying “Unlicensed products and accessories do not undergo Nintendo’s testing and evaluation process. They might not work at all with our game systems, and they could have compatibility problems with certain games, the Nintendo Switch system itself, and other licensed accessories and peripherals.” 

The cause of the bricking has not been officially linked to third party peripherals, but Nyko, a company who makes a third party Switch dock, says they are looking for a solution.
