    Yes I did. But I assume it's because I had SX OS period that I got banned. But for someone saying they don't even have SX OS AND they got banned for HOMEBREW only ? :wtf:. I don't know much about homebrew-only setups to know how many are banned from that.

    Yes. Multiple people have reported being banned from homebrew only on this thread and on Reddit. Some even cleared their logs and got banned.

    Well if that's the case I buy a second switch in December for smash online and Pokemon 2019 and use the banned console for all the other games.
    Really doesn't matter if you think about how much money you save for games.

    Okay don't know why but I am still not banned... Its day 3 now since I used SX OS and played 5 "Backup Games"
    • Banned: No
    • Unchecked "Send Errors" in Menu: Yes
    • SX OS Used offline: Yes
    • SX OS used online: No
    • Played with SX Backups online: No
    • Layered FS Used offline: Never
    • Layered FS Used online: Never
    • Played with Layered FS Injects online: Never
    • Connect internet with CFW homebrew : Never
    • Connect to Eshop when CFW/Romfs mode : Never
    • Played with Layered FS Injects with OwnCert. : Never
    • Does the Eshop work: Yes
    • Does Online Gaming work: Yes, tried with my original physical version of Mario Kart Deluxe
    • Backups updated with what Firmware?: Nothing updated, I am on 5.1
    • WiFi settings deleted: No, always Airplane mode
    • Deleted Logs with Hekate: Never
    • Deactivated Automatic Updates for Games!
    So here my "more detailed" version what I did so far and what not:
    Before I got my SX OS I the only thing I did was a lot editing with Checkpoint Homebrew. I did really a lot save edits. But nothing more with "homebrew/cftw". Then at I think Thursday I got my SX OS License. Did NOT activated it through my switch - did it on PC to get the license file. I stayed all the time since I went the first time to SX OS to airplane Mode. So I started Thursday, got 5 pirated Backups to play - tried everygame for like 20-30 Minutes. Oh, I ingored ALL the messages "there is a update available".

    After playing those pirated backups I turned my Wifi Router completle off because I read somewhere here that even when airplane Mode is turned on the switch will send data when booting. So i killed my Wifi Router, put a Original Game in my Cardridge slot (thought this would help maybe...) and after that I restarted my Switch and checked out the e-shop. Everything was running fine. I did NOT updated any pirated backups what is showing up in the main menu. The only thing I did was go to the e-shop and downloaded the German Voice package for "my" pirated Skyrim Version. And today I tested e-shop again when downloading octopath traveler 3h demo. Everything is working fine till now and I seriously have no clue why...

    I will try like 3 times a day to go online and check if the E-shop works. Will immediatly update if I got banned or not.

    I thought cfw means it'll be a cfw to go online with? isn't that an update itself?

    I mentioned this on another thread, it could be some are using their bridged joycons in OFW as well...

    Clearing log files also raises suspicion more so than leaving it as is.

    Does anyone know if there’s a way to tell if you have an account ban vs a console ban?

    CFW (custom firmware) doesn't mean it'll be for online. It's just a firmware based on the original, with modified code that allows to achieve feats such as running backups or homebrew, that the original would not. You can still access online with it, but only if you're in the latest firmware. This isn't Emunand, where you can have a second firmware meant for your hacking and online and updates, and one for offline with your older firmware intact.

    If you are banned, make a second account...if the account can go online, then its the console.

    Quick question, just got my switch and my games are coming in next week. I am only interested in transferring my CEMU/Wii U BOTW save file, how likely that it gets me banned? (Will turn of error reports, delete network details while using homebrew, clean logs, and delete homebrew files after doing so)

    What I will be doing:
    gbatemp. net/threads/save-game-backup-restore-on-5-02-botw-wiiu-conversion.504200/#post-7993526
    gbatemp. net/threads/tutorial-how-to-transfer-wiiu-botw-savegame-to-your-switch.503176/

    Will have to use "CheckPoint", Homebrew Menu, NXloader, hekate-ipl-50x.

    After transfering the save I DO plan on using online features in OFW with a clean switch.

    yes...you want to know if the console or the account are banned. so create a new account on it, and if it doesn't work, then it is the console. This however doesn't mean the account didn't also get banned; for that you'd have to log that account into a new switch and test.

    Ah, that was what I was hoping to avoid. I know I have a console ban and am considering getting another switch but don’t want to get it, log in, and then have 2 banned switches :/

    Then just make a new account and start fresh, simple as that.

    Just checked. Everything workes as it should - Eshop and Online Play in Mario Kart deluxe and Fortnite.

    What I forgot to mention: I also deactivated the "Auto Updates" in the settings. So my games won't be updated automaticly.
