    I've been moving my Pokemon SwSh emuNAND saves to my sysNAND saves for a few weeks now. On my sysNAND, my play activity logged SwSh at 260 hrs while my actual save file was at 240 (I idle and reset a lot). I always try to keep my play activity on my sysNAND higher than my save file in-case it could lead to a ban.

    Recently I've been spending a lot of time RNGing on emuNAND which made my in-game save time 300 hrs. If I transfer my save over, I worry that this will lead to a ban. Has anyone transferred their save regardless with no impact?

    I'd be alright if I got banned as I can just trade everything to a second switch. Best case scenario I just want to avoid a potential ban.

    There's always a risk of getting banned, but you could use PKHex to edit the time to match SysNAND as closely as possible. If you're concerned about that, this would be the best way to approach things.

    I tried this on Pokemon Shield and every time I try to start my game on sysNAND, I get the message "Checking if game can be played" Should I be concerned about this?

    Does it let you play the game? Does the save that you injected match the one you have in-game? If your answer to both questions is "Yes", I wouldn't worry too much about that.

    Thank you very much for your response, yes I am able to do both! I was just a little concerned because my Switch lite never gave me that message where as my Hacked switch keeps giving me that error lol

    does the game have to be the same format on emuNAND and sysNAND? Like both digital or both cartridge or it doesn't matter? Cuz I saw someone mentioned NSP are red flags. If I were to use a game cartridge on emuNAND and sysNAND, would that get me banned?

    nobody probably has a definitive answer yet, but do you think this is safe for animal crossing? would love to be able to transfer the save to whenever I'm able to get the physical game on my clean sysnand, but also cool with waiting if need be.

    Have you tried this yet? I was gonna wait until the game released to buy it, but if I can transfer my save over from an NSP to my sysnand and continue playing on my cartridge that would be awesome! The wait is killing me for Animal Crossing.

    I can't pick up my cartridge until 5 today but I plan on injecting my animal crossing save. In preparation for this I followed the video and got my upper and lower key, and I got my save and save meta folder HOWEVER the save meta folder is empty. I suspect animal crossing doesn't use the save meta folder? Is it then okay to inject just the 222mb save file? What is the save meta file even used for? I can play just fine with that folder empty on my emunand.

    Hey! I just tried it and moving the save worked fine. There was NO save meta data to move on my emunand btw so I didn't. Anyway I haven't risked going online yet and I have a clean nand backup. I really hope I can keep this character and island. Might try going online later, here's hoping!

    Do you know if transferring saves created by another user works? Or does it have to be the same user on sys and emu?
    nvm, I re-watched and you covered it.. I think

    is it safe to copy saves if the users aren't the same?

    Users have to be the same.

    DON'T DO THIS FOR ANIMAL CROSSING! EVERYONE SHOULD READ THE ORIGINAL POST FOR INFORMATION ON THAT!

    so what if you've been using cheats in SXOS on ACNH? as long as cheats are turned off before moving the save from EmuNAND to SysNAND, will you be okay? I'm where I want to be money wise and I just wanna go online with friends and visit islands and whatnot (with a physical copy of the game of course).

    Any modification of ACNH will lead to you getting banned. I'd leave the game untouched and modify other games instead.

    Heyo Cris. Curious if you've attempted this with ACNH yet with no ban?

    I connect my switch directly to the computer and backup or restore the save. I could edit them but then people are claiming bans are happening but one day when switches aren't $500 USD in the market, I'll go and test a simple inventory edit and maybe use JKSV

    Hey guys. Could somebody help me out here. How do you know which User Savefile belongs to System Savefile?
    I just found a savefile which has the same size as the Game Save, when I want to delete it, but there is not the same filenumber in the meta_save. Is Animal Crossing special in this case cause it just saves in the device?
    Thanks!

    Is there a reason why you are saying just transferring legit save files from CFW Emunand to OFW Sysnand can result in a ban?
    Isn't Emunand just a copy of the Sysnand?
    As long as you don't go online with CFW Emunand ever, they won't know you have Emunand or CFW on Emunand.
