    Just because they haven't been banned yet doesn't mean they will never be banned. It just means they haven't been banned yet. Nothing is declared 100% safe until bans have stopped being distributed.

    You cannot. Only a clean NAND backup made before running CFW or homebrew can clean a console without repercussions. You cannot generate one nor clean the console to remove the traces.

    I am talking about from a theoretical perspective where you ran a homebrew application and want to clear the usage of it from your console without a clean backup.

    You will be banned sooner or later we can't tell you, there are reports of bans just with cfw and specially with sxos, but just try to be careful the next time and hope not to get banned in the next months

    A stupid one here:

    I've got the Sx Pro with sxox ever since it came out on the switch, and back in the day everything defaulted into sysnand, which has carried over until this point. So, now I'm on 10.0.4 with Sx os 3.0.2 on sysnand, and on CFW I have been online to use JITS on tinfoil.

    Question is, there's no way to recover from this right? If I ever go online on OFW to go e-shop or anything, there's a very high chance my console will be banned?

    Without a clean NAND backup, there is a chance you will be banned.

    Those are the type of ppl you shouldn't be taking any advice or suggestions from. They are obviously playing a bigger risk card.
    Probably ppl who hack pokemon dens for profit.

    I only use sysNAND. I do not connect through Nintendo's servers cause I was using Stealth Mode before, and nowadays I just use incognito. I assume I'm already banned anyway and the only reason I use Incognito is to avoid forced firmware updates.

    If you modify your sysNAND, chances are that as soon as you go online Nintendo might collect some logs presenting data you shouldn't have with an unhacked Switch, and it most likely will eventually lead to a ban. If you have done a clean backup before and avoided going online, you could restore it for better chances of not being detected.

    But even though you have already committed this "mistake", if you still care about not being banned, make your NAND backup and setup your emuMMC. Then use it as nothing happened. Chances are you will get banned eventually, but who knows...

    @Draxzelex — Can you elaborate on step (4) here? What sort of "permanent changes" are made? Additionally, since step (4) (creating new NAND backup) is done immediately after step (3) (restoring prior NAND backup), isn't the new backup identical to the prior one?

    Thanks for the excellent data collection you've done, as well as providing this guide :)

    Once your console goes online, you will be performing various actions such as buying games from the eShop, playing online, triggering error codes, etc. These changes have to be recorded to stay consistent with what Nintendo's servers have stored. I apologize if the wording is a bit unclear. The backup you make in Step 4 is after you have already gone online and wish to return to using CFW/homebrew offline.

    Hi, I'm here just to confirm that SX OS CFW without doubt does get consoles banned but emuNAND does not.

    Out of my multiple Switches, I have two hacked consoles, one with CFW emuNAND and the other one with SX OS CFW.

    I did not go online when I was on SX OS CFW and I did not install any homebrew or any .nsp's. I played only legit games on my SX OS CFW but apparently it has some dirty shit in it that makes the NAND dirty with some files and when I booted up stock OS (without SD card and without RCM; just a normal boot) I got banned a week later.

    The emuNAND device hasn't been banned until now when stock OFW is booted.

    Do not use SX OS CFW.

    Nevertheless this was actually a testing device because I wanted to see if having only CFW will get you banned or not.
    I've got another multiple Switches and I'm going to sell this one and buy another testing device.

    Does anyone have an idea what i should test next and see if it gets banned or not? anyone a good idea what to try?

    There is always a chance at getting banned when going online with a hacked console.

    So how do you even know if you’re banned or not if you never go online?

    Has someone tried to capture network traffic when a Switch is banned (doing suspicious activity)

    It would be incredibly interesting as the IP adresses contacted could be changed or even dynamic at all times.

    I always thought the idea of 90dns is pretty weak. The only thing it prevents is contacting known Nintendo servers, and this also includes the services which you normally get banned on (eShop).

    Someone wrote they aren’t able to identify RCM, but how? If they log any activity, surely RCM mode must be logging an unhandled error (exploit). Is RCM even a mode created by nintendo or is it purely a naming given by the homebrew community for a pathway to overwrite the stack?

    RCM is built-in the NVidia Tegra chip. It's not created by Nintendo neither by the community.
