    So I currently have my switch on 4.0.1, running Hekate 3.2 with just homebrew.
    Haven't made a Nand Back Up due to not having a MicroSD Yet, its on the way, I will most likely not play online, due to not having that interest on it, however, my friends and I due play on local.

    • If i get banned, can i still play local multiplayer, as in Mario Kart and other games? or does the bans dont even let you create local matches?
    Once i create a Nand Back Up, what if i do get banned? what does the nand backup will offer to this? [ as in there is people saying /stating that having a Nand before the ban will help in the future]

    If you get banned you can play locally no problem. Restoring a nand backup after being serves no purpose

    Behind you
    Wait, how are you running homebrew and Hekate if you don't have a Micro SD?

    This. This statement is true. You can run hekate without an SD card, but you absolutely cannot run homebrew without an SD card.

    If you create a nand backup and get banned, your unique certificate in your Switch will not be able to play online regardless of restoring your unbanned nand backup. Local play and downloading updates is still allowed as long as you meet the requirements. Be on the same version for a game and you're set to play local multiplayer. Problem is that you need to be on the latest firmware to update the games

    Maybe they meant they didn't have a big enough SD card. A 2-4GB would do just fine for homebrew but not large enough for a NAND backup. And its obviously a bigger pain in the butt to do it in parts.

    Guess i should be a little bit more clear,had my standards to high on common sense, i dont have a BIG CAPACITY Micro SD card, currently only 16gb.

    Waiting on the 128gb one, since nand its 32gb, cant dump it now.
