    Hello, :)
    I want to ask what steps should I complete before go online in hacked switch and minimalize risk. I know it may causes ban but I want to try. Before I hacked my console was online so I can't full erase data. I have backup but I don't want to do restore it because I a little scared of this complicated process. Is restore factory reset option good enought? or I should do something more.:)(sory for bad english)

    thanks for any help

    Factory reset does nothing for cleaning your Switch.
    Restoring a NAND backup is your best bet, check your fuses in Hekate beforehand, if you booted stock OFW at any point after updating your fuses will be burned, and won't be able to boot OFW after you downgrade.
    The other method is wiping logs but that's easily detected by Nintendo.

    This isn't a guarantee, but if you've only played XCI and updated, you might be alright. NSPs and especially LayeredFS are what really get you. Again, YMMV. Restore your NAND on sysNAND if you've done any hacking since you backed it up. That way it will be as clean as possible.

    This is false as there has been an entire banwave focused entirely on people who used .XCI files alone while there are still people not banned for using .NSP files. Bottom line is there is a risk of getting banned as soon as you hack the console.

    Yeah, if only I had said "This isn't a guarantee" and "you might be alright" and "your mileage may vary".

    You didn't actually say "your mileage may vary" but you also said "NSPs and LayeredFS are what really get you" which I just stated is false.
