    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.

    I gues on earth.
    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?

    Yes.
    But even XCIs stay there. You just can't play either them.

    The XCIs are on the sdcard and the NSPs are on the internal storage right?

    Both can be on SD or NAND (although nobody has done XCIs on NAND yet)

    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 (?)

    Is there a way to use NSPs in CFW and still be able to go online with the actual gamecart?

    To my knowledge, yes, but there is a VERY good possibility of a Nintendo ban.

    You can get banned anyway if you go online, it doesn't matter what method you use

    but..
    the main advantage of XCI is backups on the go

    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.

    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.
