    If my console gets banned by Nintendo, can I still update the firmware in the future or is ALL connection to the Nintendo servers blocked?

    I saw some posts that Switch can autoconnect to Nintend's wi-fi with buildin settings, is that true? How can I disable this settings or kill wi-fi completely?

    Uh...ask in the Lakka thread? Sorry, not too familiar with Lakka.
    Aww man, another question I can't answer. As far as I know, I have not seen something like this.
    The DLC is stored on the Switch. If its installed on the SD card, I still think some of it is installed on the console so you can't just load DLC in any Switch with that SD card.
    That would have to involve either Puyo-Puyo Tetris on a 1.0 console or Pegaswitch on consoles 3.0 or less (supposedly, it has support for 4.1). However, since everyone uses the RCM exploit as well as PegaSwitch not being the friendliest exploit to set up, RCM is the way to go.
    All game and system updates are possible despite having a banned Switch because they are treated as a gratuity with the console.
    Either remove the Wi-Fi settings or keep the Switch in AirPlane mode. You'll know they are removed when you try to set up a Wi-Fi connection and it asks you to locate an access point.

    Really a newbie here, so please help if I'm asking anything wrong.

    I'm in 5.1.0 with 128Gb exFat sd card, and just downloaded a few xci backup games (trimmed) to play on SX OS 1.3. However, just a few games can be played out of the box, and others like Mario Odyssey just required GAME (not system) updates and couldn't run. I know that we should stay on Airplane mode all the time to avoid banning, but without network, it's just a loophole. Do you guys have the same issues, or just me got this? And how should we fix it?

    Thanks.

    Has anyone tried to play local multiplayer with the TX? Can we connect two Switch tablets without connecting to the internet, and getting a ban?

    Have you tried the following?
    If it does work, make sure you never connect to the internet as it will soon prompt for update.

    Local multiplayer does not involve connecting to Nintendo's servers so this leading to a ban doesn't make sense. You can only get banned by going online with a hacked console at any point.

    But the problem is the Switch already has all settings to connect to preconfigured wi-fi hotspot...

    Then I guess stick the console in Airplane Mode when you're out and about. Never know what type of Wi-Fi hotspots you'll run into.

    Make a full nand backup via Hekate mod and stay 100% offline.

    The only way is with hekate?
    Also, when I upload the sxos or the hekate to the switch,
    It is only there till I turn it off?
    I mean, when I reboot, it come back on with the exact same state as before? Or this stuff leaves trails?

    If you can follow this guide on how to use LayeredFS to run backups, you don't need to buy SX OS. Otherwise, TX's products are still the easier and more consistent option for running backups.

    They're needed to mount your Switch's NAND onto a computer. This could be useful for multiple scenarios so there is nothing wrong with keeping them around.

    And if you follow that tutorial while using SX OS, you will lose your cartridge slot on firmwares below 4.0 but everything else will work as intended.

    It may leave a trail as you have to run Hekate before backing up the NAND but so far, nobody has been banned for just running Hekate.
    Means you won't be able to play retail cartridges on firmwares below 4.0. Not that big of an issue though if you have SX OS since it can play any backup. And its not an issue if you are already on 5.1 but that guide is for users to downgrade to whatever firmware they were originally on before following it and some users used it to update from a firmware below 4.0 to one above 4.0.

    There is currently no other safer way to backup the NAND. If you are truly that worried about getting banned, it would be better to buy a second Switch. Nobody has been banned for solely using Hekate nor for restoring a NAND backup that was made prior to using any other hacks yet.
