    I gues on earth.
    You need to uninstall EmuNAND.
    And before anything, do a NAND backup.

    And after I did the backup and installed emunand. What do I need to do to make the OFW clean for online (side by side with the sx os emunand) ?

    You can't have clean OFW while having EmuNAND.

    I'm sure its a big red flag going online with a sysnand which has been re partitioned / reduced in size. Don't go online if you care about been banned until theirs a solution which can be used that doesn't touch your sysnand at all.

    SX's method doesn't repartition/resize anything, although it does add files to the user partition that "shouldn't" be there.

    When a proper emuNAND is released, it will be perfect for doing all kind of silly stuff on the emunand. This is a more dualboot option at the moment, people have yet to actually prove somethings with screenshots. Until that I don't believe really anyone. Hekyxz seem to have done the best write up so far.

    Sure, but if those files can't be detected in current firmware, and can be wiped before upgrading to a future firmware by just deleting them, it's a seemingly safe stop-gap.

    If you've never installed any NSPs/homebrew then it's presumably 'clean' already. If you have then hopefully you have a nand backup from before you did that.

    Hi,
    My switch is already banned.
    How to choose nand (sys or emu) when you update/downgrade FW with choixdujour ?
    Last time I updated sysnand I launched choixdujour with Raj CFW, it wasn't ambiguous with one nand but now how to be sure to select the good one ?

    Sorry it wasn't the answer of the subject but it's complementary.

    I dont have a nand backup. What can I do? Delete all Software? What else? I know there is a possiblity for a ban but what can I do to minimize it?
