    Hello Everyone,
    first of all sorry, this probably got asked already, but i wish for updated news.
    I just got my first switch, and despite being a 4.1 the serial suggrest me its vulnerable.
    I know there's no "100% ban proof method" but i'd like some guidelines.
    My plan was:
    Boot normally, go online, play my owned games, do updates etc, nomally.
    Enable airplane mode
    Boot into sxos and play backups while being offline.
    When i finish, i start a legit game from the card so the "last played" get updated with a game legilty own.
    boot back into official and use it normally.
    i wont be using sxos online.
    i wont be updating backups.
    sxos will be activated offline.
    i wont leave a backup as the last played game.
    i will only go online on ofw.
    How many chances of getting banned i've while keeping the behavior?

    What if my backups are ACTUAL backups? i mean, instead of downloading them from internet, i backup my friend's legit game card?

    Before doing anything, should i proceed with a NAND backup? will that be dangerous (ban-wise)?
    Thank you all for your time.

    i have a question, is the current hacking method by injecting a payload, can be used to full access to the bootrom (or whatever is called on the switch)

    Hi Thanks very much for your reply! :) I'm needing the physical game files from the DLC itself. I found an uploaded DLC on another site , but using hactool I managed to extract this NCA file from the NSP: "70adb7443f16f7337d50394ad5a35bfd.nca" with a file size of 1.35 GB, so I'm assuming that this is the file which has what I'm after inside it. Note that I'm merely trying to extract the game files from the DLC to use on an earlier FIFA videogame on PC - I don't have a physical NS Switch device.

    Picked up an SX Pro. Running 5.1. Couple of questions regarding game updates and nand backup.

    - I installed AutoCRM, loaded some games, updated octopath via internet. Was that enough to put me on nintendos shitlist?
    - Uninstalled AutoCRM after some reading. Can i backup my NAND now and treat it as original or is there no going back?
    - Whats the safest way to go about getting a game update for games on my SD card via the CDN?

    1. Sadly, but yes.
    2. Your nand backup will now have traces of SX OS and played games, but it will never hurt to have one.
    3. idk, sorry.

    Hi, I get sx pro soon, why it is useful to have a clean nand dump? If I get banned, it won’t rescue me. On the other side sx pro does not change the software of the switch. So how can a nand dump be usefull?

    You can read up in that tool here: https://gbatemp.net/threads/4nxci-open-source-xci-to-nsp-converter.513758/ I know it works with the current CFWs but I'm not sure what is also needed to make it work if anything at all.
    You're going to be jamming metal into your console, specifically tiny pins in the Joy-Con rail. You can read up on the possible dangers here. I've heard that the rail is cheap and easy to replace though. And if you're really worried about damaging the console, you can install AutoRCM so you don't have to worry about using a jig. You just have to make sure you either leave the console on/in sleep mode or turn it off via manual shutdown or through Hekate's power off option.
    To avoid sounding like a broken record, I will point you to the quote in the first post of this thread as the only ways to avoid a ban. Your current plan has a higher chance of getting banned than restoring a clean NAND backup prior to going online.
    Yes but according to some of the reputable hackers, you don't need to inject a payload to access the bootrom.
    While it won't rescue you after being banned, it can prevent you from being banned in the first place. And that is because SX Pro does indeed change the software of the Switch. SX OS is a CFW that modifies Horizon to enable you to play backups and there is a chance that Nintendo can detect these changes even if you run it offline because the console can store information about the CFW and send that info when the console is connected online, with or without SX OS running. That is why its recommended to restore a clean NAND dump before going online to reduce your chances of a ban because some people have been banned believing SX OS could not be detected offline.

    thanks for the answer, so it's possible to make one that doesn't need injecting every time, just entering RCM mode will activate the hack.

    Exactly, however these exploits are likely not going to be released until Mariko units show up in the market since those patch our current RCM exploit which is the only one we have for current Switch revisions.

    I am not talking about the unreleased hack, i am talking about the current one with the inject payload method, can we inject something in the bootrom directly or we can't?

    If you are talking about modifying the bootrom, we cannot because it is read-only. If you are referring to other methods of injecting payloads, we would need an exploit that gives us access to the bootrom in the first place which would be either the current exploit or a theoretical unreleased one.

    Build a time machine.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    It is not easy to enter RCM admittedly. Have you following the following video on how to properly use tinfoil?
    No, only a clean NAND made before hacking can remove all traces of hacking so far.

    hi, I have a question. Is it possible to launch hekate menu directly from Rajnx cfw? I usually go into rcm and inject the payload again, but it would be more convenient without doing it. Thank you in advance
