    I believe if you're banned, checking the eShop on any firmware gives you the ban error code. Otherwise if your firmware is too low, it tells you to update.

    I recently restored my mostly clean NAND (It was made with ReinX) and updated to the newest OFW because I'm going legit. I connected to the internet in CFW but only through 90DNS. It's been 5 days and no ban yet but we will see.

    I thought clearing error logs should be avoided based on faq here?

    Maybe they flagged you and ban you in the next ban wave?

    Next ban wave... so i'm in their list since may 2018? My Switch is modded since Fusee came out back then. I mean, there have been a lot of ban waves in these months.

    I've had this Switch on ReiNX for a while, installed NSP's and used XCI's. I went online a few times using legitimately owned games and to update the console itself.

    I've factory restored the Switch, and removed everything from the SD that shouldn't be there. On my end, the Switch is 100% normal.

    As it is, I am not banned, and I have linked my account ok, used the eshop etc. Are chances high that I will get banned even with all that in mind?

    You got to restore a clean NAND backup if you did make a backup if not you will get a ban.

    I just booted into 7.0.0 CFW with Atmosphere 0.8.4 and I've been in flight mode. I doubt I'm in danger of a ban but I'll keep you posted in the coming weeks if it happens. For the record I'll never disable flight mode while in CFW.

    airplane mode kills all the wireless connectivity of your switch, of course you're not going to get banned

    I've used CFW before, installed NSPs, gone online, stopped, went back to OFW, purchased games/online, play online and have yet to be banned. I'm sure it'll come sooner or later, but till then I'm just taking in the advantages of it.

    Hi, I just wanted to know is it dangerous right now to use layeredfs offline(internet settings deleted and airplane mode on) for backup loading?
    I actually have created a user profile on my switch only for layeredfs backups with no Nintendo account linked to it.
    And for my other user profile which is linked to a Nintendo account I ve enabled GDPR protections.
    Thanks in advance!

    Is there any way to go online while saving my fuses up until 4.1.0? Asking because I'd like to be able to make use of the private exploit if/when it becomes public.
    Not sure how to go about it though in regards of the method of updating to 7.0.1, using autoRCM and still having a low risk of being banned.
    All help is welcome!

    You could update to latest firmware with ChoiDujourNX and don’t burn fuses. Then you could always go back to 4.1.0. But if you go online with your console you will be probably banned.

    There is no reason to use LayeredFS for backup loading anymore since we have native backup launching support via both .NSP and .XCI files. The entire reason LayeredFS has a bad reputation is because it led to the first banwave due to everyone using it to play backups.
