    Quick question just to be sure. Since it's my own certificate and not some random one from the internet it should theoretically be safe, right?

    Holy crap. No one knows. You might be banned just for using custom firmware. If they can see anything, they will ban you. They haven't started yet, so we don't know what they know. Just expect to be banned if you go online...

    I think i can say that updating any Backup is safe. Have updated all my Backups on Monday and played mario Kart online 5 Minutes ago

    But they could check for files on the SD Card if you have those files on there, who knows.

    You cannot say for certain it is safe because bans can happen at any time and do not have to be instantaneous. Worst-case scenario is a massive ban-wave that hits everyone thinking it was safe weeks or maybe months from now. Keep in mind we still don't know the cause of the 3DS ban-waves so please do not say anything hacking related is safe.

    how could you know that? you have access to horizon source code? there's no way to be 100% sure to know what Nintendo can detect or not.

    Because HBL is injected into the album so is any app that runs from it.
    (they might be able to read that you modified your FW, but they can't see that you are running HBL instead of album)

    Still not enough to confirm your claim, you have no idea what nintendo logs during software execution, the assets and stuff loaded into memory are completely different when launching homebrew instead of the album app, we have no idea if nintendo logs this kind of stuff.

    Well if Nintendo is logging how long you're using some apps and sees that you were in Album for 8 hours straight and have some suspicious files on your SD Card... Eh... :P

    Stary said it. But well, he said "think" so yea. But if it is like on 3DS (don't forget it is just glorified 3DS FW), they can't/won't read integrity of runned app.

    Isn't reading your personal files against some private stuff? Which would mean, that they need to create new ToS.

    To be fair, if Nintendo is going to start banning users because of how long they are in the Album, we can simply redirect the homebrew launcher to other icons which we've already done so far so I doubt people should worry about that

    well, no need for further arguments then, no confirmation there too, we can't just assume things from closed source software.

    No it isn't. Nintendo detects whether you're playing xci backup and when cartridge. It doesn't matter if that backup is your own unique cert which you haven't shared with anyone.

    Actualy SX is to blame here since the cert wasn't spoofed correctly. They say to have fixed that in 1.1.

    The idea of getting banned (whilst possible) for having homebrew.jpeg make me laugh.

    The way to really know would be to completely RE Horizon and document every function it has .

    How many false bans would be causee be that situation.
    opening and app and leaving it open and having non Nintendo files on a standard non encrypted SD

    I was going to suggest we have a sticky telling people "We don't know every scenario in which Nintendo ban" and then I thought...no one will even read it!

    That reminds me of this stupid drama there was on a certain MMO recently because they dared checking your running processes to detect cheaters.
    Of course that was BS from lame cheaters and friends who tried every loophole possible to blame a company rather than their own behavior.

    If you play against the rules, don't blame the company over violation of private information. There's a ToS everyone is supposed to read before they access their services.
