Earlier this month, we reported third-party docks seemed to be bricking Switch systems following the version 5.0.0 firmware update. Nintendo has since addressed the reports, offering a statement to Kotaku:

Nintendo (recommends) that Switch owners only buy officially licensed Switch products . . . 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.

Following up on the last notable Switch update, the system has received another firmware download. Version 5.0.1. is out now.

As you would expect from the small change in version numbers, there isn’t too much involved with today’s update. Nintendo only says: “General system stability improvements to enhance the user’s experience”. That’s it for now.
