    Hello everyone,

    I finally got a switch (yay!) but I'm pretty lost when it comes to scene, I'd like to know if it's possible to play my backups and use homebrews on a cfw and whenever I want to play online with the actual cartridge get into the ofw and play with no risk (or pretty low) of ban.

    If you can also link me to the guides it would be amazing.

    Thank you very much

    You want to hack your switch? Then you gotta understand the risks an accept what you are getting into.
    Also you have to check weather if your switch is hackable or not by checking it's serial and referring to a this site and just entering the serial of your switch: https://ismyswitchpatched.com/ over here about serial checks weather if your switch is patched or unpatched
    Do understand if you intend on going online it is best not to hack your switch.
    I play games via CFW and have still not been banned though when going to OFW.
    But one can reduce getting banned to the lowest. But I'd suggest waiting on something for a ban wave to occur.
    Nintendo usually flag consoles and wait some time before instantly banning tons and thousands of switches.
    So we do not really know weather we will get banned or not and it is best to wait for EmuNAND on free OFW.
    I personally own SX OS and use free CFW because why not.

    Again, and as @shado9573 said, it is not recommended unless you have gotten into hacking other consoles like the 3ds or you are an expert at this stuff

    retroarch allows you to play alot of old console games up to the n64 and ps1 era its the best portable retro console

    if you want to backup your cart games on to a sd card you need to buy TX SX OS or TX SX PRO (I will not tell you were to find free games and not sharing your own backups will lower you chances of ban. PM for more infor) and don't post here about this only post on their forums. I wouldn't play backups online play unless maybe play over lan way

    and a hack switch has other advantages besides backups and emulators theres pc game streaming, play video and music, local backup of your saves, theme your switch, ftp avvess, game over lan which is better than Nintendo server etc

    always have 90DNS or TX SX OS stealth mode on is best way to lower your chances of ban and backup your nand before even using a cfw

    you need to check your serial number to see if its even possible

    First you should at least find out if your Switch is exploitable. If not then you don't need to think about the other options that would be available to you.

    If there is something that fills the requirements I ask for but I don't know how the homebrew or CFW is called how do you think I am able to search for it...
