    I want to set up a cfw on my sd card but dont want to be banned. Is this 110% safe or is there a ban risk?

    unless you set up emu emmc/emu nand and properly use it your asking for a ban regardless if you pirate or not

    1. Can Nintendo detect if you've entered RCM? At this time, there doesn't appear to be any log of RCM entries sent to Nintendo, no.
    2. Can Nintendo detect if you've entered CFW? That's unclear, but when it comes to something like the latest version of Atmosphere, the best answer is probably not. It's unclear enough that I don't recommend using CFW on your sysNAND if you can help it and if you care about online play.
    3. Can Nintendo detect if you've used homebrew? In some cases, definitely. In other cases, probably not.
    4. Can Nintendo detect if you've installed NSP files? Yes, definitely.
    If you want to use CFW, and you plan on using online play, I recommend you use an emuNAND, especially if you plan on installing NSP files.

    But theres still a slight chance of getting ban?, I have an unpatched switch that I haven't hacked yet.I'm still contemplating as to if to hack or not because I'll be installing NPS files.

    Look up what emunand does.
    Install CFW and nsp's on emunand while keeping system nand clean.

    Use CFW and get a ban...maybe. Or let it be. It is always safe NOT to use it. If you care about the online playing stuff i mean.

    If you mess with the console they can detect it, even emu nand is not 100% undetectable. They can access anypart of there console if they wish and pull information..

    If you wish to stay undetectable Do not go online..

    Or get another switch..
    1 for legit purposes without risk of ban,
    2 For un-legit purposes to do what you wish and risk a ban without worrying,

    Gambia, The
    I am still unbanned. using my switch for 1,5 years.
    SXOS + XCIs + MY certificates on sysnand including online Play -> No ban (yet)
    Atmosphere + emuNAND + Homebrew. Only offline

    However, I am aware of the Risk of getting banned, if it happens..meh I dont care ;)
