Hacking Question Is it possible to safely push a game update to an unmodded Switch from a modded one?

As I understand, the latest update for Animal Crossing requires firmware 11.0.1 however we are going to try to get all our consoles onto 11.0.0. If nothing new comes from SXOS any time soon I'm going to want to get the latest update that can be installed for Animal Crossing on 11.0.0 - mainly because of the new content that people in my house have been wanting to play. However, I've only ever gotten updates officially and then used "match local users" to get them onto a modded console. I've never tried it the other way around. Is that even safe? and if so how would I go about doing it?

Thanks!

Why wouldn't it be safe especially since you were sharing your updates with hacked units originally? And I don't see how or why the process would change just because you will be the one downloading the update from another console.

Well, I have never tried getting updates from a source other than Nintendo. Is there anything different about them that Nintendo can detect? and how would I actually get those updates?
Why do you have SX Chips installed, if you only use official Nintendy updates/ services. That's like buying $1500 Air Jordons, but don't ever play basketball. Google is your friend. Can't link or talk about those piracy sites here, but they have Un-official updates that work fine, for FW, and games.
