    So I've been away from the scene for a bit, I'm still sitting on 5.0.1 I think? Something like that. I was using a jig to access homebrew and such, but no actual CFW. Coming back and reading up on it, it seems like there are a bunch of different CFWs to use now. I have a few questions before I take the plunge.

    First, is there any downside to updating to the latest version from 5.0.2? I already missed out on coldboot and all, but as long as I can access homebrew and use my save editors, I'm fine. I know the latest version is safe and working, but is there a downside?

    Second, I just want to be sure, but is there ANY safe methods out there or is all CFW stuff an almost guaranteed ban? I couldn't give a damn about online, but I still want my game updates and eshop access. So should I just stay completely away? Or are there ways to get updates through other methods?

    I gues on earth.
    All CFWs allow for the same stuff. Homebrew and free games.
    Nope. There is nothing major planned for 5.0.1 (IIRC).
    If you do a NAND backup and stay in airplane mode, then restore the backup when you want to go online, you shouldn't get banned.

    Ok, thanks. I'll just go for it then. I actually forgot that I bought SXOS way back for the dongle and jig. I guess I'll use that since it's already set up.
    So my process should be to update to the latest OFW, then do a NAND backup, then install SXOS, right?
