    What are the different ways we currently know of that Nintendo can detect unique Switch consoles, and how difficult would it be to spoof them so that all Switches look like the same Switch to Nintendo?

    They detect them via the Certificate file. If all consoles looked the same to Nintendo ,that would raise HUGE red flags and everyone would just be banned, regardless of being innocent or not

    Is that the only identifier, or are there any other unique console IDs that Nintendo can see in connection with that?

    None. That's why CDNSP works.

    So if I could spoof my certificate to one that's already banned, that would be more efficient than trying to block all of Nintendo's servers?
