    If you don't have a clean backup, you will get banned even after removing the files.

    Your best solution would be to keep that one for hacks and

    Buy another switch to play online maybe like the cheaper switch lite.

    If you didn't do much with the hacked Switch, it might be safe to go online with it. If you installed NSP files, however, then the sysMMC is dirty, and you will likely be banned if you go online with it. Without a clean sysNAND backup, you could try running Haku33, but there's a good chance it won't work and you will be banned. This is because Haku33 can cause a log mismatch.

    you can easily sell it for more than what you got it for and buy a regular switch(they are more easy to come by lately)

    not too hard.

    I think trading it would be my best option...
    can i still back up my saves and reuse them when i purchase the games on the new console?

    You can sell the hacked one at a good price.

    If you get another hackable switch, you can switch between emunand and sysnand to play with hacks and then play online safely.
    And you can restore your game saves but you need a hackable switch or you can buy new switch and get xecuter chip installed on it

    Yes, if the new Switch is also hackable.

    if you don't want another hacked switch, you can click transfer user and saved data once you have new and old switch both in your hands.

    This will transfer your stuff but you need to connect both to wifi. Also after a day or 2, don't be surprised if your hacked switch is banned because of using this which shouldn't be a problem because your hacked switch is now only meant to play permanently offline

    to be brutally honest, nintendo online gaming suck. I got two switched to keep one "stock" and I still ended up getting SXOS for the 2nd one and it sits in the front room alone all by itself with a [powered SSD 256g harddrive attached to itto play those dance dance 18' 19' 20' games and that 30 gig diablo game.


    online play for a few select titles like animal crossing minecraft fortnite(which is better on laptop or pc , xbox) < unlimited games.

    My kid played online games for like a day or two then moved onto wanting new first party hits.

    But I do understand that if your wallet is deep and your child's want for online play is greater than god.

    Id just go get buy a new switchfirst if you can get your hands on it, transer saves via nintendo cloud if your switch hasnt been banned yet https://www.nintendo.com.au/help/sw...er-your-save-data-to-a-nearby-nintendo-switch


    let your kids play online and you can sell the switch you want to get rid of, and still profit.

    You could also check out online play with xLinkkai for example.

    But if you really want legit online you should sell your switch and get a new one, but I think the switch prices are pretty high right now.

    Mario Maker and Animal crossing is what they wish to play online...
    having game updates on time is another thing they miss...

    i'm gonna sell it and buy a new one...so strange the new ones are expensive...i care less for the improved battery, i wouldn't mind buying cheaper new one...but i can't find it anymore in the stores...only the new improved battery...with a price tag of $500!

    so....
    i connect to the online, register, sync my saves from the pirated games in my hacked switch...
    then open the same account i logged in to from the new (unhacked) switch and then i will be able to sync back my saved data?
    is this safe??
    the saved data on the 1st place are from a pirated games...;'(

    Check out this video. You can easily uninstall cfw without a trace left behind. After that, you can make emunand and also use official fw.

    On your hacked switch, you'll connect to internet and link your main Nintendo account with the user. Then go to settings, transfer user and saved data to another switch and follow the instructions on both your old switch and your new switch. Your new switch will be safe. Your old will probably get banned but that doesn't matter for you.

    Only do those steps when you have both new and old ones in hand.

    Dont be sad. You can always buy new unhacked console anytime. It is harder to find unpatched switch in recent time. I say keep that and buy new switch or sell it and buy new switch.
