    Sounds like they don't want you to stay legal if they won't even let you buy games on eshop and update your legit games.

    This is my total point I am being forced to obtain updates and firmware illegally just so I can run my legal games - ridiculous

    Just a quick update. Im using SX Pro since 1.5, XCI only (except for one nsp converted to xci game which I didnt notice until later). I still update all the games via nintendo server on ofw and activate airplane mode when switching over to cfw. Not a single ban so far.

    inside your crappy old PC
    will you be safe if you buy a second clean switch and use a brand new NNID or will they ban you if info matches on external IP/banned account registration info? i know i'm going out on a limb here

    I've been using cfw since 2018, never for once did i go online, update, or try to play online with my cfw. I was so damn careful going between OFW and CFW but my luck ran out when I was on OFW browsing the eShop to see the latest games and i was kicked out with error code 2024-4517, called Nintendo and they said my console has some strange behavior going on with it and it has been placed on temporary ban until i send it in for repair. I ain't sending my switch to nobody.

    Oh right so the temporary ban is until you send it in and they allegedly fix it . I totally agree I won’t be sending my switch anywhere - oh well it looks like I’m banned for ever c’est la vie

    Well now that's an interesting tactic. Wonder if they send you back an ipatched Switch, how thoughtful.

    Well I’m happy to report I woke this morning to the update nag. Won’t be updating at the moment for obvious reasons , but at least I can update to 9.0 if need be in the next couple of weeks . So many good games coming out I may change my mind and pick up a couple. I’ll just have to update them illegally , well Nintendo you’ve forced my hand.

    It’s tempting but so convoluted and time consuming to grab the games when my time is very limited . And I don’t play often but I need the new Zelda so will prob just buy it . But i’ll need to pirate the updates - oh what a moral dilemma lol.

    I feel the same way. Fortunately there's the /hbg program, but you have to find it yourself.

    guys, here's what I did so far:

    1) Did a backup of a clean sysnand (i.e. aside from entering recovery mode and accessing hekate in order to backup the nand, I did nothing "wrong" with the switch).
    2) Installed the emunand (hidden partition) using SX OS.
    3) Played all of my backups on emunand, never went online.
    4) Last week I went online with the emunand for the first time, which only happened AFTER I installed both INCOGNITO and stealth mode -- so my switch woulnd't connect to nintendo servers. I did it so I could use HBG and, obviously, there was no online play involved (I applied the incognito + stealth mode combo, after all)

    Now I plan on restoring my clean sysnand, which I'd use to play online the games I purchase through official means (cartridges / eshop). I'd also keep a SD card with emunand (hidden partition) for backups (with incognito and stealth mode on, obviously). Basically, there would be a card for the sysnand and another one for the emunand, and I'd keep changing between the two according to my needs. Also, since the sysnand would be as clean as possible, I wouldn't need to restore the backup everytime I felt like playing online.

    suppose I do all that, is it still possible for nintendo to track me down? is there any other precaution I should take?

    I heard going incognito is a really good way to avoid a ban, but I decided to ask here before going through with my plan.

    thank you.

    You don't really need to use separate SD cards unless you do not have enough space for emuNAND and sysNAND on one SD card. Outside of that, you should be pretty safe. And you do not really need both Incognito and Stealth Mode. Having one is sufficient at blocking web traffic to Nintendo.

    Is Emunand/Android on SD-card without going online, still 100% save at this point? I don't want to risk a console ban or account ban. Thx the reply in advance :).

    Sorry for noob question mabye, but still don't trust Nintendo not banning me and the FAQ isn't update lately.

    Android is 100% ban proof. EmuMMC is around 99%. The only reason it is not 100% is because it touches Horizon in a very small way unlike Android which is ran completely from the SD card. Also the FAQ is mainly for frequently asked questions which are up-to-date unless you can think of other commonly asked questions.

    In what way does it touch horizon? Besides copying.
