    Guess I never backed up my NAND and Boot.
    With everything going on now these days.

    Since I bought games in the store etc, and have save files on my Switch.

    Can I still make a Clean NAND / Boot0 backup? or do I need to wipe everything from it first ?
    I'm currently on FW 5.1.0 (original it was like 3.0.0 or 4.0.0 if I remember right)

    Thanks.

    While it is currently impossible to make a clean NAND backup, you should still make one as its primary use is to save yourself from a brick. In terms of preventing a ban from here on out, you have 2 options:
    1. Use ChoiDujourNX to replace some of the files in your NAND with ones you would use to run the homebrew with but this will not make your NAND 100% clean
    2. Stay offline until the community devises a better tool to wipe traces of hacking from the NAND

    Thanks..
    Do you mean with "impossible" because I bought games in the Eshop, or is it always impossible ?

    If you hacked the console in anyway, then you cannot make a clean NAND backup at this point.
