    If I don't care about the online parts of the Switch and I use SXOS, can I boot into OFW and update the switch to the newest firmware and then go on business as usual?
    Does the sxos rcm dongle and usb tool work with latest fw 9.0.1?
    Any issues with 9.0.1 and sxos?
    Homebrew still works on 9.0.1?

    Also, can a banned switch still do a firmware update with OFW? Or is the only option to update via .xci or the update tool here on gbatemp?

    I wouldn't recommend it, but yes. Until you're most likely banned.

    If you get banned, it's only possible via third party options such as ChoidujourNX

    Yes exactly, and you most likely can't buy games via the Eshop.

    Can confirm if anybody is wondering that emulators still work perfectly fine on 9.0.1 :)

    That is not true. Banned consoles can be updated via the system settings ;)

    A ban is a ban. There is no difference. And my console is banned. Permanent. And i can update it normally like other consoles.

    There ARE superbans, which completely block you from Ninty servers.

    The funny thing is, my console is banned. No eshop, no online play. But updating the firmware works. Never heard from a super ban. A ban is a ban for me.

    There are many types of ban. There's a whole thread based on it.

    Yes well maybe not everybody is up to date on all the news on this site and since i dropped the question in first post and didn't get a answer I thought that it would be nice to let newcommers know, sorry if you found me annoying.

    No you're fine, 9.0.1 came out a while ago and as soon as any new firmware drops it gets tested by many people with all homebrew. Those threads are still here. I did a search and found many. This thread will eventually get buried as well so it wont matter. But I do believe there is a sticky with info on all firmware. Let me go check.

    Edit: yeah it's there but the OP needs to be updated.

    And it will be worth less if you ever decide to sell it.
    No point in wasting a perfectly good cert. It could be useful for things in the future, you can donate it to one of the pirate groups to use for grabbing games and updates, or in the future you might even be able to sell it to someone for the purpose of unbanning.
