    No games even require 6.0.0 yet so there's no need to update

    You didn't even answer the question

    If you're eShop / online ban yes you can
    But if you're cert banned you can't update online at all

    There is a tool call chudor or something like that that you can use to update the system by copying the update files to the sdcard. That would be your only option if you're cert banned

    Unless it comes with firmware features you might be interested in. Like themes, folder support for your apps/games, etc.

    Once a game comes out with the 6.0 firmware on the cart, you can use that to update. Or when someone uploads a copy to a site like Xbins, you can use choidujournx to install it. So you can still update, you may just have to wait a little longer than those who aren't banned.

    Yeah but can you get banned if you update through ChoiDujourNX without burning fuses and then go online?

    Can you? Absolutely. Will you? Only Nintendo knows the answer to that one.

    How about updating games? When I check for updates for games I get a notice saying cannot connect to server. Yes my console is banned but I do have internet connection.

    I would say it is highly unlikely Nintendo is checking fuse counts when you connect to their online service, but I also have absolutely nothing solid to base that on. If you're worried about it, don't do it.

    Download the updates in NSP format from your source of choice (Google usually gets the job done for the determined yet smart) then install them using your title installer of choice (e.g. Tinfoil, Rommenu, DevMenu). Its how everyone has been updating their games offline.

    Are you confirming that the updates for games are out there? I haven't checked, but I've recently been banned and haven't updated my games in a month or so

    They are indeed out there, I myself updated Mariokart8 Deluxe with its respective update NSPs. Of course remember these files are not supposed to exist so of course tracking can them down is meant to be difficult.

    On a side note, since you are banned, would you kindly submit a ban report here: https://gbatemp.net/threads/nintendo-switch-banning-hub-warning.508710/

    Already been elevated to the superbanned state. Can I make it any worse if I update through ChoiDujourNX?

    Aside from a low possibility of a brick from something going wrong during the update, I don't see how.
