    Title says it all really, I want to copy my Let's Go Eevee save over from my emuNAND to my sysNAND via SX OS (I have the cart) - obviously I want to keep my sysNAND clean, so is this safe to do?

    No, using homebrew always leaves traces in your logs, so you will get banned sooner or later, if you want to modify your saves use your emuNAND

    It's not about modifying saves, I want to link my save to Pokemon Home when it's out >_<

    It's the same in any case of manipulating saves.

    Boot SX OS CFW over OFW and copy your save, no risk at all.

    That's what I assumed as I would solely be running checkpoint and copying a save for a game I already own - but others are saying it'll leave a trace?

    I mean in theory a trace is left regardless now I would like to point out make sure you have stealth mode activated (on by default)

    Been doing that for a year now, be sure that stealth mode is enabled anyway, you can sync it to the cloud in OFW after.

    I read that one user get ban, since he have 2 consoles and inject splatoon saves from 1 console. I am angry about Nintendo, because hiding that basic function like local saves by pay wall is full of shit.

    Cool, this is what I was looking for - someone who's tried it already and can confirm it's caused no issues - cheers :)

    The save's coming from the same console + user so hopefully that mitigates any chances

    There is NEVER a safe way. If you mod savefiles and the console itself in ANY way, they WILL be detected and your account AND console will get perma banned.

    I have been using SX OS since its release to import/export saves, using cheats and mods etc, and last time i went online (last month) i was still not banned...when i am in CFW i am always offline with stealth mode turned on.
    So the statement that you WILL BE BANNED for modding is, to put generously, greatly exaggerated. If you dont pirate games and do stupid things like play online in CFW, it is definitely NOT guaranteed that you will be banned, let alone immediately when those traces are detected by Nintendo.
