    You can update games on your switch in SX OS or other CFW without going online. (You need to disable Airplane mode).
    You need to have the original cartridge or atleast have the tile on the homescreen or have had the game inside your switch at any point.
    This can also be done with another user's switch instead of original who has updated backups in SX OS.

    Switches Need to be on same version, Use this guide if you arent trying to burn fuses
    How to install/run ANY Switch firmware UNOFFICIALLY (WITHOUT burning any fuses)



    1) Pick a game and press + and click software information and see if any updates are available.

    2) Select the Game you want to transfer from the Original Switch that has the game update and press +
    3) Then Click Match version with local users.

    1.

    4) It will then tell you to create/Join a Party - Create a party.

    2.

    5) Now go on your CFW switch and do step 1-3 but Join Party in this switch.

    6) Now Click Start Process. The Original switch will now transfer the update to the CFW switch.

    7) Viola, Now your CFW has latest update for the game.

    How are they the same? You dont need to connect the Via internet at all.
    Also my guide is even for a device that never connected to internet.

    My bad, since there was a guide that matched your device with the second switch.

    If you have 2 switches, why go through all of this? Just play your backups on your second switch and don't link it to a NNID... if theres no Nintendo Account, nothing to ban, but you still get updates...

    it doesn't necessarily have to be your own switch, maybe a friend who has that game, or if you are just planning to buy the game and returning it.

    Both of you need to have the game launched at least once on your Switches, whether legitimately through the cartridge or as a backup via SX OS.

    will this update my switch past 4.10? Or will it just update my friend's DB Xenoverse game and system firmware to match mine?

    Edit:My 4.10 switch will be the source switch if that's not clear

    Both Switches will be on the same firmware afterwards if not beforehand already.

    this is only available for FW 4.1 or higher. and no this does not update your FW, it just updates the game version.
