    I gues on earth.
    If you won't gon online, you ussualy don't care about bans, as you are offline.
    But if you then go online (on OFW), yes, you can get banned after all.
    The safest thing you can do is to do a NAND backup before anything and then restore to it once you end with hacking.

    Well people are banned for less than that. Basically if you install NSPs, you're pretty much guaranteed to be banned somewhere down the line, even if you only play them offline.

    I you have done anything "strange", going online will give you a ban. The only way to probably avoid that is restoring a clean backup before going online (so without xci, nsp, homebrew, etc).

    Please note that uninstalling NSP or deleting XCI is not enough to avoid a ban.
    There is a sticky post with all the info about bans.

    Going online is when the wifi is connected to a hotspot/router and you haven't blocked connections to Nintendo's servers in anyway way.

    Don't remove at the end :D

    Yes.
    And updating unowned games can get you banned.
    But idk why, I am still not banned. And I am using CFW online and normally update all games straight from Ninty -> So if you can, disable all telemetry!!!

    By staying offline, you're already banning yourself in a way.

    This is like the definition of 'going online' unless you plan to have these delivered and installed by carrier pigeon.

    Don’t forget about wired as well. I slipped my CFW Switch into a dock I forgot was wired to charge. Oops. Didn’t engage in any online activity but I could be banned, but will likely never know.

    . Sort of, but with a Nand restore you determine when and if the ban ends, not Nintendo.

    Being connected to internet makes the device communicating with Nintendo, like to download new videos for the "news" app.

    DNS blocking is not 100% fool proof either if you are mobile with the device. Do not know about your country but in the US we have thousands of Nintendo Hotspots that will automatically connect to the Switch/3DS unless you are in airplane mode with the WiFi radio shut off.
