    Hi all, I'm looking for the best way to setup my Switch. I've done a bit of reading, but I want to make sure my understanding of things is correct. I have two Switches, one to play online with, and one to mod. The problem is that my main Switch (The one I will use online and was a release system) is currently on 6.0 and has all my save data. Is it possible to get into my Switch, backup the NAND, dump my saves, and then restore the NAND? At that point, I would be able to load the saves onto my hacked system?And will that allow me to still use my system online safely? If getting this saves puts my system at risk in anyway, they aren't crucial. I can live without them, but they would be nice to have.

    Otherwise, I plan on keeping my other system in airplane mode and exclusively using it offline. I have a 1.0 system to use as my spare. Should I update it at all? If not, what's the best way to run games on it?

    Thanks for any and all help.

    I really do not like when people create a new thread mere moments after posting elsewhere...I'm just going to copy and paste my responses (as well as yours) from the Noobs Paradise so everyone is on the same page here.

    I wouldn't do any nand restoring or anything like that because right now we don't even know if nand restoring will actually prevent you from being banned or not. I would just not worry about the saves for the time being.

    You've had to be living under a rock with that statement.
