    Em.. i just got an error code today when going online to smash on OFW but I got this error code, 2124-4517
    Nintendo services are TEMPORALLY UNAVAILABLE.
    so I erased my console and same message popped up
    Does this mean a soft ban or false hope for a perm ban, also how long would I need to wait anyone know?
    Can I also act stupid to Nintendo and hope for a service fix?

    I was going to explain this earlier in my banning thread but apparently Nintendo have been doing these so-called "temporary bans". Basically, it seems like Nintendo are warning some CFW/homebrew users of an impending permanent ban with a temp ban. How these are triggered or how long they last is still a mystery but it may be Nintendo's last ditch effort at trying to move as many people away from hacking as possible.

    For reference, a similar error code 2181-4008 has been reported in similar situations and this one distinctly indicates a temporary ban on Nintendo's website.

    Phew...calm down dude. Nintendo also has to do occasional maintenance on their servers. If you were banned, there would be another error code. Try it again tomorrow.

    I've never heard from temp bans from nintendo. Either they ban you or not.

    Neither have I but Nintendo themselves are stating that error code indicates a temporary ban so times are-a changing.

    Would you any know past cases with this and how long it’ll be?

    Considering this is the first time Nintendo has ever done any temporary bans, there are no past cases with them. When Sony implemented temporary bans, they lasted 30 days but there is no guarantee Nintendo will follow the same pattern.

    Maybe but if you don't stop using CFW & homebrew, there is a real chance that ban may become permanent.

    Just as long as you're not using CFW & homebrew anymore, that should be good enough. And if you want to let me know when the ban expires or becomes permanent, that is up to you.

    I have had this error message for about a Month now.
    I formatted by switch back to factory and allowed a week to pass, I attempted to access online again and failed with the same error code.

    I give up and accepted i had been banned and modded the device again, Am unsure if this is a Soft ban, But from what i have been able to figure, they where able to collect the information from a Homebrew application that crashed the wrote to the logs and sent to Nintendo servers.

    I assume its an automatic process, Contacting Nintendo customer service, They advise you to send Nintendo your switch so they can "Investigate"

    IMO its just another effort to stop you running unsigned code on there device, We broke the T/C and they have blocked our consoles from accessing there servers.
    We knew the consequence and we did it anyway :)

    It ain't no biggy, not much online access on the switch.
    RIP Rocket League
