    hello, lets say i want to try out a game so i download the nsp, and then i want to buy it so i can play online, would it be safe to use the same save data for my legit copy that i used for the downloaded copy and play online?

    It depends on case. If you want to play on the same nand, then save doesn't matter, because already you had pirated game.
    In case of moving save unofficial way, Switch won't have info that you had this game, so save from before buying game without flag that this is imported via official ways, will be a flag for them that you have used CFW.

    Pretty risky since it's a save data from a nsp game you haven't bought.

    You are just asking for a ban! Just keep it legit.

    Nope, because metadata about creating save are still in nand.

    sounds to me like you're looking for a "it's safe" response.

    Maybe he is thinking Nintendo is a bunch of idiots and they didn't learn anything from mutliple consoles they created...

    not to be too hard on the op, but it sounds like it's too late and he needs reassurance. personally, if I ever buy an exploitable system, I'll probably just get one that's banned for a fraction the cost. however, I've preordered the animal cross switch, and the switch I have now is exploitable. I'll probably keep it 'till I'm ready (if that ever happens).
