    I've seen a few threads in here, but varying information.

    I just hacked my v1 switch, which I use to use online. I did a factory format before the hack. When I injected the payload the first time hekate booted straight to atmosphere. I opened up "album", looked around (did not open anything), then turned off, booted to hekate gui proper this time, and backed up the nand and keys.

    Am I 100% screwed, and now have a dirty nand?

    No lol, there is a virtually 0% chance that you will get flagged for ban because you opened the homebrew menu. The reasons why people get banned are because they pirate or install homebrew NSPs. You are completely safe and you don't need to worry about getting banned unless you went online with NSPs.

    It's actually just piracy. Nintendo doesn't ban for homebrew.

    Piracy and cheating online are the two main reasons Nintendo will ban a device.

    The other two are ripping your certs and using them elsewhere (like how the old freeshops would download directly from the CDN), and extreme fraud (not a single chargeback like what they do to ban accounts, but when you're doing thousands of dollars of fraud, they will ban the device as well.)

    But the rest of what you said is correct. OP is completely safe.

    Yes you now have a dirty NAND. I also don't understand why you did a factory reset before hacking your console not that a factory reset would help if you did it after hacking.

    They will ban for many things, we have no idea exactly what. Piracy and cheating obviously, but beyond that we can only guess.

    We do know exactly what they ban for.

    There hasn't been a single ban based on anything that I didn't list above.

    If you can find a single case of a console ban besides what I listed above, I would love to proven wrong.

    There have been confirmed bans just from running CFW. Granted not recently, so it seems like creport is pretty effective. I think the question is not what they will ban for, but rather, what are they able to detect with minimal effort, or if it takes some effort, is it worth their time (in other words will it make them more money than it costs them)
    What they are detecting could change at any time, and with new detection methods easily banning all CFW users (if they go online) may become easy again as it was before creport.

    Correct. But we're looking at 2 years now with creport being common place.

    And as you said it is based on effort or technological ability, but it's one of those things that Nintendo has had so many updates and even full revisions (well over a dozen updates and 3 full revision updates) and haven't done anything in years now to change this, leads me to believe they don't care or they simply can't.
