    Of course, now I see the truth! The only way to play downloaded games safely without getting flagged is by first buying every game!

    Just an update, I'm still good. Since making this post I updated a couple more games as well so I haven't really been a good boy.

    Not sure if a wave just hasn't come yet, hence why I've been holding off on saying anything, but so far it appears that updating backups does not directly correlate to a ban.

    In order to not spam the page with pointless posts I will not post again unless I get banned. If you do not hear from me in this thread it means I'm OK and haven't been banned.

    So I bought an xecuter pro today from a uk site, awaiting dispatch, hopefully this week. I am just wondering, I currently have a 128gb card with some game purchases on it, but they could all fit into a 32gb card. I would like to make backups of all my carts so I have no need to take the carts with me. I'll be using the switch with xecuter offline only. I'm just wondering if it is advised to keep these purchased games on a separate sd card, and only insert the 128gb sdcard with my backups when in the CFW?

    Just wondering if the official firmware does a scan of the sdcard and it's contents, thus having 2 separate cards should in theory limit being banned if that is the case?

    Nobody knows for sure. I have seen someone getting banned using two sd card strategy as well.

    Ouch... I think i'll still go for the 2 card option, but DAYUM. What bugs me is the account bans effectively blocking you from buying anything legally from the e-shop, which I have intention to do.

    I do believe the frequent buyer theory has huge weight to it as well. I own about 48 digital games but I also haven’t used anything to hide my tracks as well. Plus I actually own and personally dump all my backup

    I personally think the dreport program needs to backup the current log and use it to overwrite any future ones instead of removing them entirely. I mean if you have errors and then all of a sudden you have less then what you last reported. That would guarantee its running modified software so they could ban regardless. And that really seems to be the most common thing going on everyone getting banned seems to be using dreport

    I’m also fairly certain that system updates generate errors that get logged in that just to check for downgrades that way they don’t have to physically rely on efuses which would change value if someone skipped an update or remained offline for like a year

    Wow, you're risking a lot with those ~48 purchases on that account on your hacked Switch, no? For example, if your Switch does get banned, that account is stuck on that banned Switch with no way out, AFAIK.

    Hmm so what, in near future you can play anything. But what's about the knowledge from played loaded backups and Nintendo knows everything about you ..?

    SX OS version is not referring to Switch system firmware, its referring to SX OS version (i.e 1.0, 1.1, 1.2). And I already answered your post in the Noobs Paradise so take a look when you get a chance.

    Does anybody have any idea how I can make the SX OS version question as specific as possible? People are still answering the question with their Switch system firmware...

    Honestly, I think it's pretty specific already. It's about paying attention or knowing that SX has more than one version I think.But maybe drop the "OS" and just stick with "SX"? lol
    Like "SX version:" or even "SX OS version":

    "Wow, you're risking a lot with those ~48 purchases on that account on your hacked Switch, no? For example, if your Switch does get banned, that account is stuck on that banned Switch with no way out, AFAIK."

    Well I'm in a similar situation, but I can still play those purchased games on my hacked Switch even if I get banned. In fact from what I've read I would still be able to purchase from the eShop on a PC and send the downloads to my Switch; so really no big loss for me if I get banned. I don't do much of anything online except eShop anyway.

    Just to join the string of updates while I'm at it:
    Still use SX OS, autoRCM installed, play homebrew and emulators without erasing logs but have never run "backups". I have 10 cartridge games and maybe 20 eShop games and no ban.

    I heard there's a way you can unlink the account using dev menu or calling Nintendo and saying you lost the system lol.

    While DevMenu can unlink it, since you have to be online to link Nintendo Accounts, I don't think you can link it after unlinking it with DevMenu offline. Nintendo's servers are probably still thinking its linked to your old Switch so you might have to reconnect your banned unlinked Switch to the Internet but who knows if they'll just ban the account afterwards if they notice its been unlinked already.

    Yeah I would just avoid using a legit account with eshop purchases on it. Not worth getting that account banned.

    So Nintendo is still letting you buy the games. Bottom line: We ban your console, but keep spending your money with us, we are fine with that.

    Microsoft is the same as well, they banned one of my consoles during the 360 MW2 ban wave, but not the account. Also means one less console that is able to be modified online with the new Switch revision coming soon.

    Well when it comes to Nintendo and money, gotta catchem all :D


    I bought XOS, mainly out of curiosity. Played with it a few days when we were on holiday. We left the day Xecuter released their product.


    Before we left I was online with it briefly, well, I was connected but didn’t actually do anything. After that it was all offline.


    Came back from our break and removed SX OS, formatted my SD card and went back to official. Including buying Mario Tennis and playing it online. And of course re-downloading all of my digital purchases.


    Since then, all is well still. I know I may well get banned still at some point. But if it happens it happens.


    For now I’m staying legit for online play. If I get banned, well that would be Nintendo shooting them self’s in the foot because I’ll stop buying games. Quid pro quo and all that.
