    Ive never owned a nintendo switch before but i have a homebrew 3ds which a friend helped me with step by step.

    Now i want to buy a nintendo switch but i want to homebrew it and have it to play games off tinfoil.io or internet?
    I don't really know what kind of version should i get to be able to homebrew it, any help please?

    Yes, you can play online with a clean sysMMC while using CFW on a dirty emuMMC.

    You will need to do something called "emunand" and use protections like incognito/90dns on it if you don't want to get banned.

    You will use your clean and non touched sysnand (no homebrew or anything pirated on it) for playing online with legit games
    And you will use your emunand without internet or with incognito/90dns if you want to play games from tinfoil


    You can't play pirated game online on the switch, it's not like the 3ds, if you try you will get banned and no more online play.
    But you can still buy online game and use them on the sysnand

    Remember that there is still a chance, although very low, that you can get banned with a hacked device once it is online.
