    Has anyone found if the motherboard is married to the unit in some way to prevent swapping?

    I’m asking due to the possibility of unbanning a switch unit by swapping out the internal motherboard with an unbanned units board. I personally am not banned but am looking to the future of possibly assisting others with a unban service.

    Has anyone tried swapping them?

    It does not appear that they are married due to the modular design of the internal storage.

    Hell
    You wouldnt be able to transfer an eMMC from on board to another without reinstalling the firmware due to system specific keys

    Edit: but I think anything else could be transferred without issues

    cpu have unic serial number. If just swap nand from another switch maybe console cant turn on. Easy way check this - get orig dump and eject donor dump. If console can turn on - all possible (sx os license sharing including). But i think what switch will be bricked after this
