    thanks, so I need to make sure I buy a new hackable switch and I can transfer the save, I assume doing this makes the risk of banning the new console fairly low?

    Indeed. Whenever you install CFW, be prepared for a ban - it may not happen if you're lucky, but you're never guaranteed to be 100% safe.

    thanks, I'll do my best to cover my back better this time as I think I know where I went wrong last time, but good to know I can get my saves moved across!

    Using JKSV, is it just a straightforward backup-SD-transfer-restore process to move data from one modded Switch to another, or are there other steps involved? Last time I tried, I got an error message about save corruption when starting up the game but then again I don't remember checking if the two consoles had the same update patch for the game so I'm not sure if that was the reason.

    I got a smiliar question. Got a legit Swtich with legit ACNH, I know someone who has a hacked one. (I dont know the specifics)
    They offered that i visit their Island and get some Items. It would be via online play, is it safe or do I risk a ban with getting hacked items from a hacked switch?

    you will have a risk whenever you connect to online (at least thats what most people will say). The safest method is JKSV AND USE NHSE.

    the part that idk is which mode to play online: cfw systand or cfw emunand.

    so long story short (if you can afford to) have an unmodded unhacked switch with a legit copy of Animal Crossing and your modded one and only connect with each other via local play (or your friends who have legit switches and you have a modded one) only do it via local (non-internet) play (and just to be on the safe side, don't give them any items that aren't in the game)?

    Got it.

    Hello, I have tried to look for this but not found it anywhere.
    if a modded device visiting a legit device's Island, and start spawning item(with cheats on) on the legit switch island [all this happened on the Local play], Will the legit device be banned if going online ? will it kinda corrupt the island data reading because cheat is used there?

    Friend of mine helping me in the wrong way, and I have not turn play online ever since, it is better for me to reset rather than getting ban. I myself does not use anything, but the modded device does use cheat while on my island.

    Thank you in advance.

    has a unmodded switch ever been banned for communicating with a hacked switch/that hacked switch having cheats on while visiting the legit switch?
    i think you wouldve heard about unhacked switches being banned by now if that were the case. even before animal crossing.

    I'm surprised by the number of boxed villagers sellers on ebay - you can be pretty sure that the villagers are hacked since you could pick any, but the sellers don't seem to have been banned yet.

    It's the people actually buying them that are crazy.

    While we're on the topic of bans, if you have your switch with a real nintendo ID and purchases banned, is that account gone forever or could you have nintendo unlink the account from that device and then log in on a new unbanned switch? I know transfer isn't possible since you can't connect to nintendo servers if banned.

    Hopefully that question makes sense.

    I'm pretty sure they only ban the console, not the Nintendo account.

    they can ban nintendo accounts if you're found guilty of chargeback or credit card fraud

    ok so after time has passed.
    is it totally safe to trade items generated from cheat codes, with local play, from a cfw banned switch to a unbanned legit switch?

    i have both, a legit switch and a cfw switch that is already banned.

    sounds to me legit switches cannot be banned considering ive done the following

    played with local cheats on connected to unhacked
    traded a million times to my unhacked

    can you imagine how much backlash nintendo would recieve if unhacked got banned just for communicating with a hacked switch? unhacked switches has no altered cfw and when youre on local play you are taken off the internet to begin with

    played with local on cheats enable? wow that sure sounds x20 times risky from what i was thinking, i was going to use your codes to spam objs, drop them, close and open game with no cheats, and then pick everything as i go to my island from my ofw switch.

    and yeah, considering what's going on with nookazon, it would be quite a backlash
