    Overuse of private keys actually lowers the strengh but it's meaningless since it's still way too strong no matter how much computing power you have today. It's not impossible but infeasible in any reasonable time frame. And quantum computers are not the magic silver bullet you might think. They are very, very far from beeing ready for industry use let alone for consumers (if there will ever be ones for consumers that is).

    People on here who believe it's impossible to get unbanned, it will happen in due time, Microsoft did the same with Xbox 360, which has efuses and they did ban your whole console and it's certificate and hackers still found ways to unban themselves.

    Infact you could say Nintendo is doing exactly what Microsoft did on the 360 and that's why people on here shouldn't be so negative.

    Doesn't that require you to buy another console and transfer the certificate though?

    It was possible on the PS3 to unban, until Sony blocked them all except transferring certificates from another PS3.

    Which is kinda pointless as you're going to get banned again pretty quickly.

    Yes but at least if the two consoles don't play at the same time it's fine. You could share your cert with a friend for example.

    1. You need a friend who also has a hacked Switch and is confident enough that sharing the cert would not get either of you banned
    2. The two of you can never go online at the same time which you two will not be able to coordinate 24/7. Someone will most likely slip up
    3. If you're using this to unban yourself, that means you were banned the first time. A second ban is not any stretch of the imagination

    All your points are valid except the 3rd one : I won't make the same mistakes. Anyway, you said the encryption was fairly easy to defeat so why not just do this ? Combined with emunand we could have a clean and legit NAND with a working cert and another one with .nsp and homebrew with a banned cert.

    If two consoles have the same cert, then it will probably result in a ban

    If the two are online at the same time, yes.

    not realy, but if you install NSP offline and then load an NAND Backup without NSP then you are not banned and will not get banned but i didnt tried that.

    There is no safe way to stay unbanned other than not hacking your switch.

    Do not share certs. This is a terrible idea.

    I have never once said the encryption is fairly easy to defeat. Cracking a 2,048 character key would take several billion years with the best technology.
