    Assuming your account is not banned, you will only be able to download the DLC fighters on an unbanned console linked with the Nintendo Account that made the purchase. You can find out if your account is banned as well as if you can update your games online by filling out the form in the first post which has questions that address these points.

    This is based off of subjective experiences and not hard data. You always risk a ban when going online with a hacked console no matter what anyone tells you. Another way to look at it is to see how much is online worth it for you. If you would immediately buy a new console if you are banned, then never go online with CFW. Although since Atmosphere now supports emuMMC, you don't even have to take that risk as long as you have an SD card large enough to fit emuMMC.

    Well, the idea was to create two separate emuMMCs: the first one based on current NAND state with pirated games and the second one based on clean NAND dump.

    This way I would be able to switch from one emuMMC to another without having to pass fusee-gelee payload each time I want to play pirated games. So if the risk of banning is low I would prefer to do that.

    That is fine and no one has been banned for using emuMMC as long as they never went online with the partition running CFW and homebrew.

    But it is impossible. emuMMC is available only within CFW. Isn't it?

    There is an option in Hekate to boot emuMMC with Stock settings and although it is currently broken, it will become fixed in the future.

    I guess the better question is what would that even mean. Because stock firmware itself isn't going to do the emummc redirection. You're running something custom by definition.

    It would be similar to booting Stock via Hekate where you do not apply any patches that CFW is known for but boot the console up as closely to normal as possible.

    Earlier Stock option in Hekate just skipped fuse burn/check phase; everything else was kept intact. What has been changed recently in regards to this option?

    Not at all, homebrew can be detected in your logs, so you won't get banned instantly but in the future you will get banned. My recommendation is to create an EmuNAND to use homebrew and keep it offline, and use your sysNAND for online and legit play

    You don't know what device you send payloads with? This is either a Windows, MacOS, Linux, Android, iOS, dongle, etc. Also pins 9 and 10 are the two pins in the back with pin 10 being the pin you have to short to enter RCM. If you connect those two pins together, you can enter RCM. So have you ever connected those 2 pins together to trigger RCM?

    I hope you're not implying you've been using SX OS for two whole years since its only been out for one. The Nintendo Switch certainly has been out for two years but backup launching only became available around the time SX OS came out.
    I'm also not sure where you got such an outdated ban report form. I highly encourage you to fill out the form in the first post as that one has much simpler and specific questions while reducing some of the redundant questions such as Airplane Mode.
    This is also where I have to respectfully disagree. Not only is it ludicrous to believe that Nintendo is scanning SD cards for files, even under the assumption they do, it would lead to potential privacy violations and false positives. What clearly led to your ban was using .XCI files and connecting the console online. Not even OFW is safe as it has already been proven to lead to bans after the LayeredFS banwave. There was even a user who just got banned for doing very similar things as you as seen here. Now you might wonder why you suddenly got banned? Well it appears that a banwave was spread and your console was already flagged months in advance so it was simply your time. Bans are random after all. If you check a few posts above you, there is a user who has .NSP files installed and hasn't been banned for months. There is no "safe" hacks, it is only a matter of time until everyone is banned.
    You just copied these questions and answers from the user above and unless you both started using SX OS in last December, I doubt this was the lowest version you personally used so please specify. You should also know what device you send payloads with. These include Windows 10, MacOS, Linux, Android, iOS, and dongles.

    My bad, I re edited my post.

    I never sent payloads outside of SXOS, I just used SXOS to play games offline in SX CFW and played legit games in stock FW, never installed an NSP before ever, never played online in XCI games, cant anyways since SXOS has stealthmode on and you cant load XCI's in stock FW.

    I legit thought I was safe, I was playing Mario Maker 2 online with a real cart, It's not really a big deal, I never played any other online Switch games, just used my Switch for exclusives.

    I went on their forums and a few people said they got banned also and never played online.

    Guessing Nintendo is going ban mode before Switch Light comes out.

    Makes me wonder if nintendo are now able to detect emunand and they're just waiting and collecting users for the mass banning?

    I was asking in general and not in your case. But I feel like nintendo is now able to check a cards content once you connect to their servers.

    Also I red in my fb group that kefir updater might also get you tagged for a banning and I also wonder if there are any truth to this?
