    Hello,

    I have a Nintendo Switch which has been banned so can not download game updates when required.
    I am finding it a little hard to find game updates.
    I also have a new switch which can be hacked but i am worried it will end up exactly the same as my current switch.
    Just need honest advice.

    1/. Keep current banned switch and try to find updates? Struggling to find atm.
    2/. Add cfw to new switch, if i do this and obtain game updates through Nintendo servers will it end up in a ban?
    3/. Keep new switch till coolboot is released see it is not ippatched?

    Thanks

    In your mind
    if youre uding a hacked switch with custom firmware you shouldnt go online at all.
    i keep mine in airplane mode at all times.

    most updates are unnecessary, and if its needed for stability one could likely find it using google or reddit.

    make a clean nand backup before you hack your switch so you can potentially restore it and use online functionality again later on.

    1/ Are updates the same as full games? Since they're free and required to play base games, are they legal to distribute or link in general? I'm not sure of the legal requirements.
    2/ Just assume cfw will lead to a ban at the moment. The scene is still figuring out things

    If you've got a clean switch then why would you put yourself through the process of trying to find updates again with that (if you're finding it hard).

    Just keep it clean, buy your games and then for your homebrew use your banned switch?

    I'm starting to lose track of how many new threads you keep making asking a different question; either continue asking questions in that thread or make a post here: https://gbatemp.net/threads/nintendo-switch-banning-hub-warning.508710/ There is absolutely no reason you need to make a thread to ask a question unless somehow your situation cannot be answered with a simple search and/or in a thread.

    If you risk obtaining the updates offline, you risk getting banned and the current bans limit game updates. So regardless if you don't or do end up being banned, you will need to find the updates offline. The best situation is having 2 Switch units, one legitimate and one hacked. The legitimate Switch can even share game updates with the hacked one locally, provided the legitimate console has a legitimate copy of the game as well as its update.

    Finding game updates is actually kind of easy, if you know what to google. Just a few hints here:

    First, find out the titleID of the game you want to update. Check this table and find the game you want to update (CTRL-F). Now that you have the titleID, change the third number from the right (0) to an 8. For example, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has titleID 0100152000022000. Change the third 0 from the right to an 8, so now you have 0100152000022800. In the Title Versions column, you can see that this game had 7 updates released so far. Usually, you only need the latest update. The latest is 458752. Now visit google and search for this: [UPD][0100152000022800][v458752]. Keep the brackets, they will help. Now the results should point to some sites allowing you to get the update. Just try a few until you get what you want. Easy enough.

    Possible. But it's unimportant since once you've found a website to get the updates from, you just browse what they offer and no longer need the list. I was just showing a way to easily find those "forbidden to talk about" sites.
