    Yes

    If you had any logs and clear them now, then yes you will create a mismatch.

    Creport only keeps error logs on the SD card that were generated after creport was already running. If there were error logs created before you ever used creport, then they will stay stuck on the console.

    Can you use the eShop on the Switch? Yes, just grabbed Tetris 99
    Did you restore a clean hack-free NAND before going online? Not entirely. Screwed up by downgrading only boot0/1. Used matty's repair files before applying 8.1.0 through Chou

    Can you login to Nintendo's website using your linked Nintendo Account? Yes
    SX OS used? No
    Used DevMenu? No
    Installed any .NSP? Multiple
    Did you connect to the Internet w/ any .NSP installed? Yes. Even updated via stock sysnand, burning fuses
    Did you play any .NSP installed online? Not yet. Might be my death wish as info how to play online is scarce. If only for the reason it's probably impossible, this ain't no Pokemon game on a 3DS
    Did you perform any CDN/Freeshop downloading with your own Switch's certificate? No.
    Did you update your .XCI/.NSP games online? CFW/OFW/Both/N Have not booted any nsp's on stock as I read it would it say they're corrupted until picking a cfw option in hekate
    Did you ever use ReiNX? No
    Homebrew/non-SX CFW Used? Y/N (Specify any and all homebrew used/crashes/error codes) Atmosphere.
    Connect to Internet with homebrew/non-SX OS CFW? Yes
    Connect to eShop while using CFW/homebrew? No
    AutoRCM? TX/Hekate/Both/N AutoRCM is on, using hekate to boot stock sysnand
    Did you update your firmware using ChoiDujour or ChoiDujourNX? As part of the repair process. Fuses were burnt initially updating through Nintendo via cfw sysnand
    Did you install the exFAT update offline? ??? Possibly, but maybe not. It apparently happened without my knowledge.
    receive-lp1.dg.srv.nintendo.net blocked and/or "Don't Share Usage Information" ticked under "Other Settings"? No idea where "Other Settings" is on the Switch, but I turned off sharing my play data and such under friend settings before connecting to the eshop the first time.
    Do you have eclct disabled (look for pm.kip under sysmodules/modules)? No idea.
    Do you have creport enabled (look for a folder named 0100000000000036 under titles)? Can't check atm
    What firmware(s) were you on when you cleared error logs prior to going online? Y: X.X.X/N Never cleared logs
    Wi-Fi settings deleted in CFW? No
    Console/Account Region(s) US/US
    What device(s) do you use to send payloads with? Just a lappy
    Do you enter RCM by bridging pins 9 & 10 together? No. 1 and 10.. I've found my tongue to be more reliable tho lol
    If Banned, provide proof (video preferred)
    Additional Comments:
    ......shouldn't I be banned?

    Context on the tragedy I put this release-day Switch through :<

    What are the chances of getting banned if you only do save-editing? I'm a Homebrew noob and I want to make my life easier in some games (e.g. level up some skills in Three Houses) and I want to know how likely it would be for my Switch / Account to get banned, even if I only insert "legal" edits.

    Highly possible. And if you were to get banned, it would affect your console most likely as there are few to zero verified account bans.

    Additional Comments:

    Always used legitimately bought carts or e-shop purchases, never installed any .NSP, emulator or similar.
    Save edited and cheated the shit out of single player only games, never went online with edited save file. Caused multiple crashes with edited games.
    I've stayed away from editing anything that is vaguely online focused (SSBU, Mario Kart 8, SM Maker), but edited games with an online mode (FE:3H) even if never connected.
    Mostly play offline, only go online to download game updates and whatnot.

    I was hoping someone would have more update to date or personal experience to share, I saw in Nintendo forum post that a Nintendo rep told someone to ring customer service to discuss things further which I might try tomorrow

    A user by the name of Gimzie already contacted them albeit via live chat and was also given a number to call but never called that number. Though I'm doubtful the call will reveal any additional information, you've got nothing to lose by trying.

    Well I call Nintendo and long story short they told me the ban error code 2181-4008 is "Permanent" NOT "Temporary"

    Well Nintendo is lying to you as someone has already been unbanned after receiving that error code.

    While that is an interesting change of face, it still doesn't change the fact someone was unbanned with that error code.

    how long did it take?, they said it was became they could tell I modify my console in some way and of course that's true. I had backup my eshop titles and my account is still fine on my patched rev 2 switch so i m guessing it was just cfw being on it otherwise my account would have gone with it as well

    EDIT. side note i traded in the switch to eb games. the guy at Nintendo offers me to send the console in and have a replacement sent back so eb games can just replace it. I manage to find a brand new switch on eBay and serial said its unpatched and possible 4.1.0 fw

    I was going to get a preown from eb games but they cost the same as brand new ones on ebay so whats the point

    If the save file wasn't modified or touched in anyway, you shouldn't be banned for transferring it over. Otherwise you risk a ban if the save file has been compromised.
