    Just because that's where the system pulls that info from doesn't mean it doesn't exist in some place we don't know about.

    The Switch is not a black box. We know things, we can see what is stored in the eMMC, decrypt it, read it, understand it. The Prodinfo is only in one place.

    Not saying you're wrong, but I'm going to remain cautious.

    You are welcome to remain paranoid and wrong. Or you could educate yourself. Your choice.

    No, it's paranoia based on a complete lack of technical understanding. If you understood what you read, you'd understand how the Switch security model prevents dirty tricks like 'copying the ProdInfo somewhere else'.

    Not everything is hard. Defer to experts. Don't question everything all the time. The person that made this tool knows what they are doing.

    Using both serves absolutely no purpose. It's like putting on a condom after cutting off your dick.

    I don't understand why you're still arguing with yourself when I agreed with you.

    Can I ask a quick question please in between the drama can you use this with going online play or does it block everything I know on the front page it says so you can go online undetected but what online features can you actually use with incognito? Thanks

    Hell
    cal0 is generated and written to the nand at the factory (and is never touched afterwards). It’s not generated when you boot the system for the first time

    It prevents your Switch from connecting to Nintendo stuff, you can still connect it to the internet though

    Sorry that doesn’t really help me so are you saying you cannot use for example Splatoon 2 or Mario Kart 8 online playing but you can have an internet connection through settings? It says you can use your switch online without worrying about a ban but that is a big answer does it mean online as in eshop, online gaming looking at new Nintendo games adverts or does it just mean it will run an internet connection through settings and connect and that’s as far as it goes? It doesn’t really explain properly and no one can seem to give me the correct answer. If it just gives an internet connection to your switch and that’s it I cannot see the point else really there is no point in connecting your switch to the internet at all because there is no need for it anyway.

    It has pretty much the same effect as a DNS, no Nintendo online stuff (eshop, online play, etc), but you can still connect to the internet (mostly useful for homebrews that use the internet)

    Thanks but I really don’t see the point in this, what homebrew really needs an internet connection that you cannot do through dns that sxos already provides on boot up.

    True, I confused with another process of first boot, the calibration process it's on factory and all data are written there.

    It's simple, don't all use SX OS, so for the users that have Atmosphere or ReiNX are a helper to try to prevent a ban.

    It's in the switch folder, it's also part of your rawnand.bin.

    I just have a quick question (might have not seen it while going through the thread):
    - This tool removes permanently my unique Switch prodinfo (certificates) unless I restore the prodinfo.bin, correct?
    - How can I check that this is indeed the case and that I won't get banned going online?

    My unit shipped in 4.0.1 and has never known anything else than offline mode, I have a full clean NAND backup and I'd like to keep the possibility to go back online #oneday.

    Thanks.

    - Yes
    - System settings > System > Serial number > Look at the console, it will be empty.
