    Im going to install CFW in my switch but i want to keep playing online with my original games, but i dont want my nintendo account in emuNAND, should i factory reset the sysNAND before doing all the procces?
    Once i have OFW and CFW, is it safe to link my nintendo account in my OFW? Thanks.

    Yes, but remember to link back only the OFW and not the CFW emuNAND, that's how my switch got banned, and don't even connect your CFW emuNAND to the internet, or find other threads on hiding your CFW, from Nintendo servers certificate check.

    PS. Use "ChoiDujourNXv102" to update your emuNAND.

    The general advice is to use a DNS which blocks access to the Nintendo servers. You need to set this up on OFW before you create emuNAND so that your emuNAND will never connect. As long as this is in place and working, it doesn't really matter whether you Nintendo account is linked or not.

    Now unlinking your Nintendo account is an extra layer of protection, so it wouldn't hurt. But it's not a replacement for the above step. They could still ban your console if anything on CFW connects to their servers, even if your Nintendo account is not linked.

    Im planning on use airplane mode always in CFW so i wont connect, its more safe if i connect to internet but blocking DNS like you said?

    I believe some games attempt to connect to Nintendo's servers even in Airplane Mode (by temporarily turning it off), although I could be mistaken. It's MUCH safer to use DNS.

    No, they don't. They ask you to do it.

    No, you shouldn't. Keep it linked, some games require it even for offline use.

    The best way to keep your emuMMC from connecting to Nintendo's servers is to use incognito_RCM to erase the prodinfo partition (which contains your switch's serial number), it's safer than 90DNS.

    I just used Kefir to replace my account. Was I not supposed to do that?

    No because the account Kefir uses is ban-bait and messes with save data. Everyone should link a real Nintendo Account to their console preferably before hacking.
