    I haven't tried going online with stealth mode yet as I really don't want to risk a ban. Obviously I wouldn't use online functionality on 1st party Nintendo games, but what about switching on wifi when playing games that use their own servers like Jackbox Party? Do you still go through Nintendo's servers at some point during the process? Or is stealth mode intended purely for homebrew?
    Cheers

    Yes, they still require going through Nintendo's servers because you are using Nintendo's console.

    Ok, thanks for clarifying - do you think there will be a way around this in the future?

    No because it would defeat the purpose of Stealth Mode.

    The only option for online play with a Switch using SX 'Stealth Mode' or a DNS such as 90DNS is homebrew. There are plenty of homebrew with online support, including the Quake games and Retroarch.

    I played Jackbox Party Packs with friends all the time, used SX OS, installed nsps, ran homebrew, playing online with purchased copy on ofw.
