    I just booted my switch and all I have done in the last few weeks is boot RCM. Not Homebrew but just RCM for 2 minutes. I came back to Error Code 2124-4007. Like I said no Homebrew. If you need more info PM me.

    When you say just boot rcm and not Homebrew what does that entail.

    I booted into RCM. Decided I did not want to load a payload. So I powered down the console.

    Fucking with the Nintendo console at all (including something as simple as RCM'ing) at this point is prob going to fuck you when it comes to online communications.

    I wouldn't be surprised in the future even doing a google search about hacking the switch through a browser would cause you to get banned.

    They most likely banned you for something you've done in the past. I sincerely doubt They would ban anyone for just for booting into RCM. You could trigger RCM by accident with a dirty Joycon or something.

    edit:
    That's what got you.

    Well that detail really matters. Even if you only had it installed for half a second, Nintendo can still see that

    every game that were installed on your switch is stored on the memory of your swich so even if it was a minute nintendo read that info and banned you, the only thing that you could did to erease that registre was install a clean nand

    If you wanna be a scumbag, just go to Gamestop, buy a used Switch, swap the motherboards, and return the Switch for a full refund. There, unbanned Switch! That's if the last owner didn't hack his Switch. :P

    There's a million warnings that installing nsps and not staying offline will get you banned

    Probably should have mentioned you did that rather than saying all you did was enter RCM

    these threads of ban warnings are pointless. Everyone should know that installing nsp files should already know that they can be banned at any point regardless of any FW update. I have SXOS with a few NSP's and have gone online to play fornite alot in OFW and have yet to be banned. I know its eventually going to get banned and thats ok because thats the risk you take. Warning people about the update isnt going to prevent bans. The only way to prevent any ban is to not modify it and buy your games.

    Not banned yet but if I do get banned I’ll be okay too, as long as local play works I’ll probably be okay. Besides not sure if the switch will be like the Xbox 360 but I think if I’m correct when a person was banned with the red ring, there was a way to unban yourself, maybe the switch will be like that too.

    :rofl: Didn't quite think that detail was important?

    Installing an NSP installs a fake ticket (with the needed titlekey) into your ticketblob (unless you explicitly remove the fake ticket), and there are no current reliable methods of removing that fake ticket from your ticketblob, other than restoring a NAND backup. Tinfoil allows you to delete tickets, but the ticketblob is still invalid afterwards.

    I already said this once before but I think it warrants mentioning here:

    I love these threads. I did nothing wrong I swear! Oh but I installed nsps. Oh but it's ok I deleted it...........

    These threads need deleting. Topic is misleading.
    Topic should say I'm an idiot. I did illegal shit and I'm banned. Feel for me

    I disagree. This thread serves as a reminder that installing NSPs is a much higher ban risk than playing an XCI file. You know those TX haters love to pretend this is not true.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    however title should read "be careful, installing NSP for 1 minute is not safe"...
