    Very early on around the time firmware 6.0 was the latest there were 2 possible cases but no confirmation so proceed with caution.

    If you had at least tried Googling that error code, you would have realized that error code is related to Stealth Mode as it was asked much earlier in this thread.

    I've had CFW running for a month now and have remained in Airplane mode. I've now restored my Switch and its contents to factory settings using the appropriate tools. If I do end up getting banned, could I expect to find buyers for this Switch console, seeing as this is the hackable model? I'd rather sell it and buy myself a new Switch so that I can play online games. I'm not soliciting or advertising here, but just a hypothetical question.

    Your target purchaser would be one that wants to use it for modding purposes as anyone who does not want to get banned and only likes playing online would choose to purchase the newer model for the same reason you are. You should be honest with the new purchased to let them know it has been modified just in case though.

    I noticed that eb games / microplay was advertising to trade in your old switch for a stupid good discount on a new model ( I dont remember the price but it was at least 225.00usd) I don't know if this is a rabate being offered to the store by Nintendo to get all the moddable units off the re-sale market or not, but it would appear that these stores may have a great previously played console section for those looking to get a older unit :D

    I'm using tinfoil, i have ton of games installed on my emunand.
    I even have my save modified in pkm Sword.
    And i'm not banned.

    I use incognito with 90dns in my emunand.

    I was able to dl Warframe on sysnand, bought a New game and still Can play online in pokémon.

    I'll be probably ban later on, but for now i'm not banned yet.

    I'll update later if it happens.

    I still play Warframe daily so i'll be sure soon enough.

    So recently I was thinking of hacking my switch, but I'm still a really avid player of warframe (mmo that has no crossave or cross-progression support what so ever). So I was thinking of buying a lite and continuing to play it via that. Here's my plan:

    My plan is copying my nand, then buying a lite, making the lite the primary system and then restoring the nand of my normal switch; making both systems primary systems and not having the online only restriction for playing games on the normal switch.

    Just so I know in advance, is this a good way to avoid getting an account ban, or is there something I haven't thought of?

    I don't think it will work if you go online again with the hacked Switch, I could be wrong. You could just emunand the original which would keep your profile primary and circumvent the online requirement but obviously you would want to keep it offline. On the clean sysnand you would have to keep your profile as secondary, but for online games you have the online connection anyway so the check is a non-issue.

    I mean, I was planning on disconnecting the hacked switch from the internet once I restored the nand, but thanks for the heads up. If it wasn't for warframe I wouldn't care if my nintendo account got banned, but I'm pretty sure if it does get banned then I'd lose pretty much everything on it

    Your account won't get banned, worst case your hacked console might.

    I wouldn't bother restoring your nand either, just back it up and then go emunand root. That way you still have a nice clean nand, can still boot sysnand for online if you ever want to play big screen and have a relatively safe hack zone on your emunand. Ban chance with that setup is next to zero.

    Use this guide when the time comes:

    Well, I guess I'll try doing that then. I'm still going to buy a second switch though. That way I can just play warframe whenever I want to and still be able to do nearly whatever on the hacked one [excluding going online]

    I'll do the emunand stuff first though

    Hello, hopefully I’m asking this in the right place. I have an old Switch that is hacked and used it to get a bunch of Masterballs in a save of Pokémon Sword. If I connect to Pokémon Home and deposit a bunch of legit Pokémon holding these Masterballs and then use my clean Switch to retrieve them that system’s save file, could the Masterballs cause a ban on the clean Switch?

    Been a long while, and have used my switch on and off, there would be times where I would use my switch a lot, but then it would eat dust for half a year or until something new happens in the homebrew scene. There have no doubts been a few slipups I have done with my switch like clearing logs and countless times accidentally having connected my emunand to the internet without stealth mode or launching xci's while connected to the internet without stealth mode, but to this day I have yet to be banned and I can still play my legit copy of Splatoon 2 online on my normal nand, which was used to do stuff like hbmenu and save editing before emunand was a thing

    So I haven't actually checked if I'm banned yet, but I'm probably going to do it soon. Just realized that when I did my clean NAND backup back in September, it was in small parts because my SD card was small (32 gbs). So I ordered a bigger one off amazon because I guess I can't restore my NAND unless you have more space.

    I'm thinking that I am probably fucked though. I did not like setting up 90dns on my Switch because it slowed down my connection when downloading from the freeshop. So I just turned it off while on emunand while downloading big files from there. After that I had the Wifi off again. For the most part, I've been offline. I never went to eshop or launched any games while online. But have been online with installed NSP/XCI while downloading from freeshop. So.....possibly banned. I can edit this post on Saturday/Sunday with the actual updated form later.

    Mainly curious if I'm banned because I want to play Animal Crossing online next month with my friends. But if I can't, then it is whatever. I guess Nintendo will lose out on my money.

    Can (or does) Nintendo check your fuse count when you go online and ban you because of a wrong fuse count? Be it more or less.

    In my case, my fuses are of the correct count for 9.1.0. If I restore a nand back up that puts me back at 6.2 and go online (to update) will nintendo realize that I have more fuses burned than 6.2 is supposed to have and ban me for that? Are there reports of bans for this reason?

    As far as I know, no one has been banned yet for having a incorrect fuse count. Even I have the wrong fuse count, and I play online all the time and haven't been banned for two years now. What Nintendon't does do is use the fuse count to keep you from downgrading easily to older firmwares or that was the plan since downgrading isn't really that difficult. I say you have nothing to worry about lad, but then again, no one knows what Nintendo can see and what they check. We're all just speculating and will continue to do so, hence a lot of half truths and a bunch of stuff that don't get some people banned, but others will.

    I have two Switch consoles (a hacked older console running emuMMC and a Lite) and I share my Nintendo account between both.

    When I made my NAND backup on the older console that one was set to be the primary console so the Lite required constant internet access to start any games. But now the Lite is set to be my primary console and the hacked one is still set to be primary in emuMMC which has no internet access.

    Well, has anybody tried restoring a NAND backup (to the older console) in such a situation? I'm worried that Nintendo will notice that both consoles are suddenly set to be the primary console and I'll get banned for that even if everything else is clean.

    I guess I should make another NAND Backup where the account is not set to primary console mode while I still got the chance, just to be sure.

    Edit:
    I'm sorry. I did not read the latest replies before posting. Now I saw that someone asked that very question before.

    For now all I can add is that I'm not risking it. I'll keep my old console in primary mode in emuMMC without internet and use the Lite for everything else.
