    just posted an update, it allows the importing of prodinfo files. in theory, if you imported a prodinfo from an unbanned console, it can unban a banned console.

    Sounds too good to be true... xDD even if that "Unbanned console" is the same console now banned?
    Wouldn't Nintendo keep this server side?

    And anyone who needs help finding the root of their SD card shouldn't be using something that fucks around with their prodinfo (which this application does)

    Edit: corrected should to shouldn't (whoops lol)

    You still need a clean nand backup, your nand will be dirty with cfw and ilegal NSPs leftovers.

    I was thinking about that, all the error logs and stuff will be all over the place! But if you do only games then you should be fine I think. But then again yhat's why we have EmuNAND in the first place.

    A copyright is a legal concept in and out of itself, not just a legal device - it's quite literally the right to copy. They don't have to explicitly protect a particular part of their product - in the event of having to protect it in litigation, they can just rely on what's called "prior art". That's neither here nor there, the point is that it's plagiarism either way, and it's unnecessary - it's just an icon, it can be changed to something original quite easily. Even if we assume that the icon can be distributed as an individual piece of "art" as opposed to a part of the software package, as described under GPL, the person using it would still have to credit Google accordingly. The author would also have to include the permission notice with their product, which is a bit silly over what amounts to a couple of pixels.

    so now you can 'zero out' prodinfo and later restore it again with this?

    no idea if its even involved, but will this interfere with anything else? like applying firmware updates or whatnot?

    So if I use this on emunand it only affects said emunand right?
    Then I can swop microSD cards and boot official firmware like nothing ever happened

    Couldn't we inject the prodinfo from another console with hackdiskmount? I heard it could but the console wouldn't boot up. Does incognito fix that? :O

    Pretty good !!!! You can't get banned if you brick your switch ;) or lose your prodinfo .... Although I'm pretty interested in that claim that using a no banned prod info would unban my switch will wait for proof for that claim

    Are you sure? Tried it myself, flags can only allow reads from CAL0. If anyone can find out if there is a flag, It'd be great to know.
