    Out of curiosity, what are people using these days to scan NSP files for updates?

    If he's worried about getting banned, he might want to avoid using any CFW at all, and specially installing NSPs, be it SX, Atmo, ReiNX, or whatever. But yeah, going online disabling Stealth Mode / 90DNS, could probably lead him to a ban, sooner or later.

    Do I need to have a subscription for 1fichier to download from? What brand of 512gb will work with the switch? I also asked about updates for Xci/nsp and DLC if Brawler or 90DSN is blocking Nintendo servers. How are those handled if need to run entertainment.

    You can sign up for a free account and stiill download from 1fichier, but it logs you out a lot so make sure you're logged in when you're downloading the game or you'll have serious speed issues. The speed is not bad with a free account. I don't know if it's faster or how much faster with premium never had premium.

    You don't need one just to download, if you want much faster download speed like 8MB/s then you can get a premium account, 20 bucks or so for a year ain't too bad. I have 512GB Samsung EVO from Amazon, the green one in my modchip switches, the U3 speed is very nice, transfer speed around 75 mbps. But keep it in mind to always test your SD card when getting them in the mail. As for NSP/XCI stuffs you have to look for them online, as far as an app like the Wii U Helper, there isn't one. You can try HBG Shop, program is based off blawar tinfoil, but speed vary using google DNS ranging from 2.4 MB/s to 6 ish MB/s, note that HBG Shop doesn't work with 90DNS and newer version of tinfoil doesn't support Kosmos and Hekate due to some dispute between developers. 90DNS is a DNS server than block communication with Nintendo server, but it will be shit if it went down, keep it in mind they are hosted in France and Australia, so there speed suck if you are in the US. Incognito edit your prod info, changing your serial number from like XAW1234567890 to XAW0000000000.

    The serial number of What and How? So if HBG doesn't work with 90DNS will blawar. I'm not sure about the whole thing too many complications. I don't even know what OFW my system I just bought a few days ago through eBay will be on when I get it in the mail or if CFW for it is possible if it's preset with a higher OFW then current CFW can work with. I bought the Grey Controller system.

    What makes you think that SX OS is any different than other CFWs when it comes to get banned? (since you told him not to use SX OS as a manner to avoid it)
    As far as I know, SX OS with Emunand may be one of the safest ways to use a hacked Switch connected to Nintendo, although still not 100% safe.

    And its not paranoia. We need to state facts... if he goes online and get eventually banned it's a very predictable situation, as it already happened to a lot of people, using all types of CFW. If he cares about getting banned he should avoid connecting to Nintendo servers with it. If he doesn't, that's fine too. But he needs to be aware of the risks. I wouldn't feed him misinformation just because "it didn't happened to me".

    Incognito edit out your serial # on the system OS, so Nintendo wouldn't know it is you, but you need to keep a backup of your NAND and prod.info incase you want to go back online. When you get your unit you would need to find out if it patched or not, if it is not patched you can push the CFW payload via rcm mode, if it is patched you gonna have to wait. There is an unreleased method for unpatched and patched unit up to 7.0.1 as the exploit got patched in 8.0.0 firmware.

    If you connect just once you still take a risk, since it's believed that Nintendo could (and probably does) collect a log, and in this log it will probably point to stuff that a normal user would not be able to do with an unhacked Switch.

    The safest methods going online is either restore your clean nand (in case you did a nand backup before hacking it), or using emunand with SX OS and using a clean sysnand to go online.

    It's also believed that if you didn't install pirated games (any NSP or XCI) your chance of being banned is also considerably reduced compared to the ones that installed them (it doesn't matter if you unistall them before going online).

    Just be aware that, even if you take all these precautions, if you connect to Nintendo you're assuming the risk of getting banned. If you didn't take any of these precautions, your chances are considerably high (some would say it's certain).

    Also be aware that there are tons of reports of people getting banned after hacking their Switch, so it's not an unjustifiable fear.

    Okay, I honestly have no idea what you are talking about you lost me at editing the serial # on the systems OS. I'm a total noob when it comes to this Switch stuff. Would it be possible to get help from you or someone willing to help me with installing the CFW and other things needed after I get the system in a few days? I have a discord account if talking there would be better then here. With all this complicated information I'm worried about bricking the systems if that is possible if something went wrong while doing the mod.

    Do I need to have a subscription for 1fichier to download from?
    No, although you can figure that out by going to that website and checking there.

    What brand of 512gb will work with the switch?
    There is no reason to believe that a certain brand will not work. Samsungo Evo are recommended by many. I use a SanDisk. When you get your microSD card in, verify the size with h2testw (Google it to find it). If a card seems too cheap to be real, it is.

    I also asked about updates for Xci/nsp and DLC if Brawler or 90DSN is blocking Nintendo servers. How are those handled if need to run entertainment.
    What about XCI/NSP updates and DLC? If you're using CFW, you will get banned if you connect to Nintendo servers. You will NOT be getting game updates from Nintendo. 90DNS blocks everything that needs to go through Nintendo servers. For specific applications, search this site or Google.

    HBG/90DNS
    If you were a member of HBG's discord, you would've seen their information that answers all of your questions. HBG-Shop blocks 90DNS. Plain and simple. There is incognito and a fork of incognito that works with Atmosphere.

    I feel like you sourced your information from a YouTube video. Those are the worst place to get information from. If you need more, real-time help, then join HBG's discord.

    As for backing up your system and preparing it for CFW, I highly recommend doing exactly what is said here: https://gbatemp.net/threads/backup-...-your-biskeys-tseckeys-keys-txt-guide.513386/ and with the files provided by that post.

    It's a lot of information, but to be fair, it's not that complicated. But you need to do some reading, otherwise is not worth it.

    Even if you find someone to help you in discord or anywhere else, I believe it's better just to follow a good guide. There's some out there pretty good that are used for most users and works perfectly fine, and you can find a lot of helpful information in these guides too that will clear your mind.

    Here are two recommendations of mine. I followed the 1st and it worked perfectly fine, but discovered the 2nd a bit later and actually it seems more complete:
    1) https://nh-server.github.io/switch-guide/
    2) https://guide.sdsetup.com/

    I believe you can't go wrong with neither of them, both are for installing Atmosphere CFW. There are plenty of others out there in case you want to try ReiNX or SX OS for example.

    But do some reading and maybe watch some youtube videos (carefully) regarding it all. It will make things much clearer for you. If you feel insecure, do not try to deviate from the guide's instruction. And if you feel way too insecure, maybe you should consider not doing it yet.
