    Hi all, i have a question


    Prefix:


    I had been using homebrew launcher CFW on my Nintendo switch 5.1 and accidentally updated to 6.0, i got it working with all the new stuff with no issues


    At the time i did not have an SD card for my switch and would delete and reinstall games when need be


    I have since been banned from the eshop (i did not play online or change profile picture idk)


    I have since gotten a 200Gb SD card



    Main:


    The issue i am now having is that i am no longer able to get these games


    I have done some research into this but am a little lost:


    Is there a way for me to install the .NSP files for these games on 6.0

    Or

    Is there a way for me to safely downgrade to 5.1 and install the .NSP files



    (i have never done anything with .NSP before and have only been using homebrew through the album icon)

    Thanks for any assistance

    So you've been banned from the E-Shop and you're trying to install games from the E-Shop? WELL THERE'S YOUR PROBLEM! You've been banned, you aint getting that stuff back from the actual E-Shop. And no, downgrading isn't going to be possible for you. Nor would it actually help since, as you say, you've been banned from E-Shop. Right now, youe only hope is to get a CFW running and aquire the .NSP files of the games you want elsewhere

    Well first of all you'l need the .NSP themselves. Then you'l need an app called tinfoil to actually install them

    Yes. Very few things are broken on 6.0

    Yep. Get yourself ReiNX or RajNX and you're good to go
