I have this setup:
  • EmuNand CFW completely offline
  • Clean SysNand OFW online, not banned yet
What I do when going online with SysNand is to remove the MicroSD before doing so. My question is, is that even necessary? Was anyone ever banned for having CFW files on MicroSD while NOT being in CFW on a clean SysNand?

Well when I first made my emunand, when booting to my restored ofw it deleted all the game files off my card without warning. (think the warning wasn't in earlier fw versions)

Any other time I boot to ofw with the cfw microSD inserted I get a message telling me the contents are not compatible and need to be wiped before use, at which point you have the option to take out the card.

Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but for me that means I cant use my cfw mSD on ofw unless I want the contents to be wiped (my ofw is treating the mSD like it has been taken from another system, due to the emunand)

So although cfw files will still be on the mSD, I don't think people use the same mSD for ofw because it wipes the game data for anything not installed onto the ofw.

There have been no confirmed bans for anything other than 1) installing NSPs or 2) cheating online.

People have also reported bans recently for going online in stock to download updates for pirated XCIs. That's still more than just having CFW on an SD, but it's something to watch for how even stock can get you in trouble.

Nope nintendo doesn't check your cards contents. If that was the case then most likely all of us would have already been banned a long time ago.

I'll rephrase then, if you don't do piracy, don't install NSPs and don't cheat, you likely won't get banned.
