Hello, a short quick question for you all. I have a hacked banned switch with animal crossing and the island transfer took both installed. They both use common tickets.

I have my girlfriend's old unbanned switch on OFW since I got her a lite. I have the cartridge for animal crossing, and want to transfer my island from my banned hacked switch to her old OFW switch and play online with her.

Does the OFW switch pose a risk of getting banned since I transferred the island from a "fake" copy? Many thanks in advance.

EDIT: I want to add my island is super vanilla. No hacks or cheating or anything of the sort.

There was someone who did that a while ago.
He didn't get a ban in Animal Crossing but he was banned from SmashBros.
But I presume he did some hacking.
Chances are low that you will get a ban for just transfering the data.

Transfering that data is a bit tricky if you want to keep your Switch clean.
It involves dumping the NAND, adding the Animal Crossing data and restoring the NAND.

Wait really? I can't just use the Island transfer tool? I was able to transfer the data successfully but haven't boot it up on my cartridge yet. I've read around here people were able to transfer their islands from banned to unbanned/clean switches no problem.

You can safely send the data without worries, the transfer tool does all the work, no ban risl

    I've got a clone, it works fine, but I can't get it to play nice with my SDcard reader.

    like an sd card slot extension thing?

    Yeah, to load from (and save data to) an SD card plugged into the serial port.

  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    You test that extension thing through a regular usb reader on your pc? Could just be a shit one. Bought one for my 3d printer and it just straight up doesn't work

  • MightyJAK @ MightyJAK:
    it can't be plugged into a USB reader (it's made from a regular SD card to USB adapter, but with the USB end modded to a Dreamcast serial plug)

  • MightyJAK @ MightyJAK:
    It was working fine before I installed the GDEMU, but now the Dreamcast doesn't recognize it when I boot up Dreamshell.

    Can't find any threads about this particular issue on GBAtemp or the wider intarwebz. Saw one video on YouTube that seemed relevant, but it was some dude with the same issue, no solutions offered in the comments. :/
