    I’m on 4.1.0 and I want to be able to play smash online, so I need to restore to before I had cfw. All I want to do is restore my NAND, keep my hours in Zelda, and not get banned playing smash online.
    Any suggestions?

    Is your current firmware the same as your nand backup?

    Use Checkpoint to backup your saves to your SD card. Restore your NAND, play smash online, and when you're ready to stop playing online and start using CFW again, then you can use Checkpoint to restore your save.

    If you wanna play risky, I've played online with Hekate for months and never got banned, and I did a lot of save backups and restoring using Checkpoint, but I haven't gone online since they released the Nintendo Online Subscription. I'd imagine that using CFW to restore your saves and play online is a lot more risky with 6.2.

    Depends on how much playing online is worth to you.

    A nand backup is an image of your nand at the moment it was made, including whatever game saves you had. If you restore nand without making backup of your CURRENT game saves then they will be LOST because your nand will be wiped clean and rewritten over with the back up nand.

    Yes it is. And someone on discord recommended me this. https://gbatemp.net/threads/libhac-hactoolnet-v0-1-3.521599/
    Any clue if that could work? I might also just clear my error codes, delete all cfw and update to 6.2.
