    Hey all,

    So i like to own physical copies of my games, but i admit its nice to have them digitally. Using say SX-OS and ripping my own games, is it still risky playing them digitally? What precautions should i take, what to look out for, etc?
    I know that running CFW alone already poses a risk, and everything does in those regards does, but what is the current state of playing your own ripped games?

    Thanks :-)

    You have to stay offline if you are using Backups. If you go only you will most likely get banned

    Everything get's logged. With these logs Nintendo can tell if you are using a CFW

    in front of a screen...
    Been there, white hat pirate here ... only backed up games I owned physically to a digital form (XCI)
    Did some other minor stuff (emulation) on CFW.
    Got banned, now superbanned,

    As I got banned I then switched all my games form xci to nsp (for more ease of use).
    But also am thinking about a secondary switch ... which will stay as vanilla as possible.
