I've been tasked with fixing someone's banned console HDD (somehow I've become the local console guru), but I don't know what all is possible.
I know the ban corrupts live accounts, mucks with achievements, and prevents installs of games; I saw somewhere on here it's possible to fix this problems; how's this done? Also, does the fix allow full functionality on the banned console?

Thanks for answers in this 'time in trouble'

As has been mentioned a few times already, the "unban" method is tricky, convoluted, and requires a console that can still use the JTAG exploit. I.e. If it has a dashboard v8xxx, it won't work, so you can't unban it.

As for the HDD, I've heard some complain that it's permanently crippled, but I hear a lot more that it will work fine on any other console (although naturally certain DLC, avatar items, etc, will have to use the HDD transfer tools to get them working on other consoles, and game installs just need to be reinstalled). On this aspect, I can only say that my HDD seems to work fine on other consoles and all I did was just format it (to get rid of the abundance of game installs and small files in little time) and reinstall the games.

So, I basically don't see how/why you have to "fix" their HDD, when it's the console at fault (because of the nature of these new bans).

    @BigOnYa well, starting with, idk which emulator should i use for switch, i got a gtx 1650, do you know which one would it better for my pc?
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    The switch emulators on pc rely on your CPU mostly, and they only use a single core, so GPU not as important as a good CPU. I don't use switch emulator, but many here do, and willing to help.
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    @K3Nv2 do you want to chime in, don't you use yuzu or ryujinx? Which do you prefer?
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    @Morganna I'd say try them both, and see which work better for your setup, good luck, and have fun!
  • Morganna @ Morganna:
    i tried just yuzu so far, not even played, just open the game to see if it run
