Background: I offered my olderNintendo Switch to my nephew and I bought another one for me, but before that I was using it and I have some savegame files I would like to have in my current one. The problems in here are: my Nintendo Switch is hacked but banned permanently (it was banned before I bought it) and my nephew's Nintendo Switch is non-hacked
Hi everyone, so I would like to know if it's possible to transfere a save file from a non hacked Nintendo Switch to a hacked Nintendo Switch?
I have tried to transfere the save file into SDcard but it is hard to know which file is for Pokemon Sword (which is the game I want the save file). In Nintendo/save/ folder I just found this files:

1645482395056.png


then, I have tried to transfere from SDcard to Nintendo internal memory to check the files again but appears exactly the same files.
Other thing is, for Pokemon Sword the size of the save file is about 4.5GB and I can not find any file with that size.
Is anything I can do to solve it? I don't want to use another file from someone else and even play the game since the beginning again, I just want to continue to play my own game/save.
Thank you all guys!!!!

You have two ways you can transfer, transfer the profile to a hackable unit, then hack it, or just homebrew like jksv or checkpoint, moderate chance of ban if you do it this route. Since it is just pokemon, just trade your pokemon over locally.

I am able to transfer a Nintendo Switch profile into a banned Nintendo Switch? I can not access Nintendo Switch online, mine is banned. Or we have a way to unban like what happen in PS3 where we just swap the MAC address and the console ID to unban it?

There you go :creep:
That's why I am asking for help, if is any different way to solve it :unsure:

The transfer route via transferring profile require an unbanned, unhacked unit, I don't see the point of it, just trade your pokemon over, why you want the profile on another unit so badly?

It's because I don't want to play the game from the beginning, I just want to continue my save from where I stopped, that's why.

You have to homebrew your unbanned one if you want the save, which you probably would get banned, just moderate chance, when I played it I just edit my pokemon and transfer them over.

The problem is, the unbanned one is not hackable by normal procedure. To hack the unbanned one I need to solder and I don't have any experience on it

I guess you are out of luck, you can't transfer to the banned one via system transfer, and you can't run homebrew on your current unmodded one, just do the trade route to be honest, that would be the best way.

Seems like I am in a bad luck really. Anyway, thanks for you patience to try to help me with my issue.
Btw, there is no solution for banned ones like I said before like what we have for PS3?

Nope, they ban system not account so people can just buy another system again and log in with the same account, if you really want to transfer then you need the unpatched non banned unit that I mention, patched/v2/oled need the modchip.

You have to install the mod chip in patched Switch, so it can be by yourself (require soldering) or hire someone to install.

That's a good way but... Probably I will not do it. First I don't know where can I get a modchip, second I don't understand nothing about soldering and third, very probably near me I don't have anyone who can do that job for me so... Very probably I will pass it. But thanks anyway :)
Edit: I'm not with a big hope but, let see if hte Nintendo Switch scene can do something about patched models. Everything is possible :)

You have to find someone who can buy mod chip and install, but expect to spill over $100 for mod chip + installation, but most challenge is... hard to find someone willing to do and some people have a luck with Discord, but I don't know about who. You would have to get involved in social circle often to find someone.

Switch saves are encrypted so it cannot transfer natively without need save manager like JKSV to decrypt the saves.

Last time when Nintendo consoles with non-encryption saves were Wii, so save encryption started in 3DS.

Nintendo specifically blocked any easy ways to transfer saves between consoles because they're paranoid about savegame exploits.
But it is possible. If you know somebody with a hacked (or hackable) Switch, and you ask them nicely, maybe they will connect your account on their Switch OFW and download your cloud saves and then use a RCM payload to dump the save (doing it this way doesn't require installing CFW, and it's safe from bans)
Obviously you need to get NSO on your unhacked Switch to upload the cloud save.

BTW, you cannot move saves to the SD card. Even if you move the game to SD the save data stays on the internal NAND.
And the reason the file is 4.5 GB is because that isn't save data. It's part of the game.

And that is a good alternative for my problem. I will have a look if any of my uni colleagues have a hacked and unbanned Nintendo Switch.
Thanks a lot for your tip :)

I've seen you talking about unbanning a Switch using a spoof even for a while (I saw your comment in a post in here). Can you tell me more about how do I spoof my Nintendo Switch just for to transfere all my save files linked to my account?

There is no way to unban the Switch, unlike 3DS. If ban, it is ban for good.

I've seen a lot of people telling the same, it is not possible unfortunately but somewhere in GBAtemp website, @The Real Jdbye sais it is possible (kinda) but not for a long time by spoofing so I wonder what kind of method is that one. Like I can see, he has a good reputation in here and that's why I have made that question
