After this month’s Switch system update 14.1.2, Nintendo has now silently deployed a so-called “rebootless” Switch firmware update.
This month’s system update included stability improvements as well as some under-the-hood changes and updates to the bad words list. As now spotted by Switch miner ‘OatmealDome’, a new rebootless update for the platform adds even more bad words, including swears, racial slurs, words of a sexual nature, and references to terrorist organizations, to the platform.
As mentioned by the miner, this new “rebootless” is installed silently and does not change the version number of the Switch firmware. As expected, no reboot is required for this update. The last rebootless firmware update for the Switch was released back in December of 2020, this update also updated the bad words list.

Nintendo has released a “rebootless” update for 14.1.2.
The only changes are to the bad words list. A large amount of swears, racial slurs, words of a sexual nature, references to terrorist organizations, and more were added to all languages.

Although the included changes with this update are minor, we still found it interesting to share the release of this “rebootless” firmware update for the Switch.
The Nintendo Switch is available globally now. Nintendo released the platform back in 2017. In 2019, Nintendo released a lower-cost, handheld-only version of the platform, the Nintendo Switch Lite. Last year, the company launched the Switch OLED model, which comes with a 7-inch OLED display, adjustable stand, wired LAN port on the Switch dock, enhanced audio, and 64 GB of internal storage. Here’s what we had to say about the Switch OLED model:
Whether you upgrade to the Nintendo Switch OLED is up to you. The OLED model is the best version to experience the console’s games if you’ve been holding out getting a Switch until now. It’s a fantastic screen that improves everything Nintendo wants to do with art direction and style. Its new stand and metallic feel make it feel valuable. But if you already own a Switch, it’s up to you whether replaying the games you own on a better screen is worth it.
