I don't plan to pirate games, but I wanna actually back up my games saves, and other things. Am I gonna get banned by that alone? Idk how Nintendo goes about handing bans.

Hi.
Running any CFW, homebrew, unsigned code or whatever else not licensed by Nintendo will flag your console, and will eventually lead to a ban.
If your console is not yet banned I would highly advise you to set up emuNAND. That way you can have a clean sysNAND for online play whilst having an emuNAND for CFW homebrew needs.
there's plenty of well-written guide in the tutorials section. Be sure to check them out!
Got any more questions regarding bans? Have a look at this thread.

You are not likely banned just because you use CFW or homebrew.
You can go to online safely even with the latest Atmosphere.
The most important thing is ,you will get banned as soon as using the Internet after installing any nsp.
By the way, if you use Emunand ,you should use https://gbatemp.net/threads/incognito.531924/ so that you can go to online without getting banned.

Even if you back up games saves or anything else,you will not get banned.

Are we sure this incognito is safe? I remember someone, Sciresm maybe, saying that deleting the personal datas it's a suspicious thing itself and can lead to a ban.

No you can't just go online safely with any cfw unless you're using a properly set up emunand (which is technically not even 100% safe)
If you go online/connect to nintendos server with cfw there is risk. There are things like 90DNS and Incognito, but they're not concrete either (especially since nintendo can look at the code to these things themselves)
More than just installing nsps can result in bans

So in a nutshell. stay offline in CFW if you've at least ran CFW once, unless you have made a NAND backup prior to running CFW on the switch.

    oh dear. making codes for nes is kinda stressful. i'm trying to think of cool ideas that haven't been thought of before. it's hard to be original, and i don't wanna make codes that already exist!

    Anywho, I've been using my modded Wii to play a few games here and there, and finally installed a custom Wii theme thanks to Larsenv helping me in a call (I have a family edition, and I don't wanna brick the nand since I can't restore it) Went with the basic "Black" Theme, since I'm a huge fan of dark themes, and it's less of an eyesore at night

    Larsen also helped me with my Dazzle setup, since the drivers for my model weren't online. I also helped dump that DVD with it, since I had a DVD drive.
