    So, I just successfully converted an XCI file to NSP using the 4NXCI tool in order to be installed on my Switch which runs on ReiNX CFW.

    Question is: will the same converted dump work on other devices as well apart from my own?

    .NSP files work on all hacked consoles however they need a ticket in order to launch properly. The ticket can either be acquired by purchasing the game from the eShop (won't work for games that are .XCI exclusive) or install and launch the game in a CFW with ES (Eticket Service) patches.

    tl;dr Yes but they need to be installed with a CFW that has "signature patches"

    Everything @Draxzelex said is correct.

    For your own understanding, keep in mind that you used nothing specific to your Switch when you generated the NSP file using 4NXCI. The NSP will work on any Switch with a signature-patching CFW.

    Yes with CFW (try to don't get banned, don't play online with games you don't purchase).

    This sentence is not clear
    This means that you will not be banned by playing the purchased game, no matter if he asks before ,that he convert xci to nsp?
    ---------- nope --------- nope----------- yep ---------- ban-----------

    You can't play your official games Online... without taking any precautions
    1/ dump nand before any hack, installation of nsp
    2/ if you use nsp online without restoring nand= ban
    3/ no nand? No online without a ban

    Even if you have a backup of your nand, and you restore it, you still have the ban too...

    So, i don't know why you reply my with fake information.

    You didn't understand me.
    I'm just saying you can't tell someone who makes a conversion xci to nsp, because any installed nsp modifies the.nand, so if they install these famous xci to nsp on their console, and they do what you said "to play online with purchased games" they'll be banned so bad advice, unless they restore their own nand before, erase any trace of hack nsp, my point of view

    You did say that, didn't you? Yes with CFW (try to don't get banned, don't play online with games you don't purchase).

    In this case since he has installed nsp even with his own games ,he will be 100% banned!
