I keep seeing a lot of threads that talk about NSPs and how they’re good/bad. I personally want to stay away from installing my gamecarts as NSPs because I haven’t been banned yet and there is a lot of evidence that installing them would get you banned rather quickly. So, I was wondering if anyone is working on XCI loading like how TX has for SX. I want to use atmosphere but XCI loading is the only thing holding me back. I did some searching but it didn’t turn anything up.

There is no reason when you have NSPs. And the rule of thumb says to stay offline if you want to mess with your console.
But aren’t NSPs eshop games? I have physical gamecarts so if I convert the XCIs to NSPs and install them they stay on there even when I boot into stock, right?

Doesn’t ZeroTwoXCI install XCIs to NAND? Although, with that said, it may be that their tool converts the XCI to NSP, on-the-fly, and actually installs an NSP.
Yeah, it converts the xci to nsp, it doesn't actually install the xci, neither sx os does, it just emulates the catridge afaik (?)

i don't know, I think XCIs don't offer much of an advantage aside from been able to change them on the fly. However, I've got some friends that have encountered issues with load times (right now I recall they mentioned with Dragon Ball Fighterz) when using XCIs as it took waaayyyy too long. The installed the NSP and have never been happier.
Using XCIs doesn't prevent you from a ban. The best way to prevent the ban is to have a second switch.

So which has a higher likelihood of getting banned?
Since we don't fully know what is been send to the BigN's servers, I'd say both.
The rule of thumb, as it was mentioned earlier in this post, is to not go online with a hacked switch.

You could theoretically do a nand backup of you switch before installing any games or hacks, play your pirated games and then restore the nand backups when you want to play legit games online but sounds like way too much trouble.
