    Hi, i just got recently banned by installed trimmed .xci with my switch.
    I would like to know what i can/can't do of important on a switch.
    But my main question is if i can update my switch while banned.
    Error 2124-4007 while trying to play online/go to a eshop.
    Error 2181-4008 while trying to update a game.
    I don't know if i have errors in updating my system because i am in 6.0.1 and it doesn't give errors when i check.
    Thanks, Vasco
    NOTE- First hacked my switch on 22/10/18

    You can't do just 1 thing. Play online games.

    Every ban is a superban nowadays or will be one soon. Then you cannot do ANYTHING online-related to anything official. No game updates, no system updates, no eshop, no online gaming.
    You'll have to acquire updates in nsp format from somewhere else from now on, and same for systemupdates. The latter you install with ChoiDujourNX.
    Basically a minor inconvenience for pirating. Live with it.

    Any games that require the usage of online servers are restricted when banned.
    Accounts are very rarely banned. He can check if its banned by logging onto their website. And if its not banned, you can salvage it by linking the account to another console.

    When you use a Nintendo Switch to connect to Fortnite's servers, the console has to go through Nintendo's servers first because of the way the console is designed.

    I've actually been thinking about this... shouldn't this be something that a CFW should be able to bypass?
    i.e. the Switch "asking for permission" from Nintendo's servers if it can use the internet

    I mean, you should still be able to play online games that aren't using Nintendo's servers if a CFW could bypass that step, it's not like the Fortnite servers check the Switch TLS cert if it is banned...

    I'd really like to ask a scene/CFW dev how viable this idea is.

    I dont think that will ever work. The gameservers' authentication (and your account on them) are linked to your online Nintendo account

    Tbh I don't really play Fortnite so I have no idea how the online for it on the Switch works.

    I'm not banned either so it's not really applicable to me. I'm just curious about the possibility from an academic standpoint.

    From what I understand from your post though, it seems you say that the unique login/session used by the gameserver is taken from your online Nintendo account?

    Well, I'm guessing it depends on the implementation then... if they are checking some value for Nintendo's signature using N's public key, or checking directly with Nintendo's servers serverside, then yes, it's not doable.

    But if they're just taking some unique identifier (i.e. like a unique account ID/GUID/UUID), taken from the Nintendo account details, and not something that's signed/validated with N's servers, it might be something that could be faked by CFW even with just a randomly generated value.
