    In other words, the answer is "no," given that the Switch was used since SX OS launched and did use online features (e.g., updating cores on Retroarch though no online gameplay), though was not banned at the time it went into permanent airplane/stealth mode?

    Sorry, not trying to be dense. Just want to be 100% clear.

    I myself used homebrew before sx os(pfba an some other apps) and loaded some legit xci files. Used the console normally with a very active eshop account.

    Then I was in a "clean" backup&restore cycle until emunans was released. My switch has been on "legit" ofw online and "tainted" emunand with Nintendo servers blocked.

    I haven't been banned despite using xcis without clean backup, I used to clean the error logs before it was deemed unsafe.

    If you haven't used nsp files I think that you might be still good to go. Anyway if you don't try to go online you are already self banned, you could take the risk and check if you are safe, worst thing could happen is going back offline again.

    There is probably next to no one caring about a working xci of an online only game, which you can't play anyway if you want to be somewhat safe from banning

    Appreciate your detailed experience. My experience was mostly along your lines with one (prob major) caveat: I did install and extensively use the hbmenu as an NSP.

    But - as you said - I'm basically self-banned as is, so maybe I'll just throw caution to the wind and see if I was hit in a ban wave in the past year or so that I've been offline. If not, we'll see!

    Thanks again.

    We can restart the console into SX OS without the dongle & such? That's a huge +

    Very nice!

    The only problem i can find is that i can not use the homebrew menu with full ram support any more. It goes into the menu but can not navigate and press any button. Using the R button with a nsp game.
    i am on emunand 9.0.1 (files) and sys nand 9.0.1 are anyone having the same problems with this.

    Have you connected your switch to the wifi? you have to have the switch connected in settings, then turn off stealth mode and run Mario Maker 2 xci, it should freeze so does Smash xci, if your wifi is not connected to the switch in settings then it runs fine with stealth mode off, it only seems to happen when you are connected to your wifi and turn off stealth mode then run the game, not sure why? If you are banned it should not matter if you try.

    Edit: sorry to test this out you will need to turn off stealth mode first, then go into settings connect to your wifi then go back and boot up Mario Maker 2 xci or Smash.

    No my unit was brand new on firmware 4.1.0 untouched I went straight ahead and set up emunand hidden partition up turned of telemetry on account and I have always used online titles I own in xci format in emunand since and never had an issue I sometimes play for hours especially Mario Kart 8 there are a few members here that already know this about me. There was a thread about injecting certs into xci back ups along time ago I have been doing it for a while now.

    You say you are banned I can only think it’s that why it’s working for you. I don’t understand that, it’s certainly doing it for me I will upload a video have you tried Mario Maker 2 as well? I’m wandering now if it’s a UK thing because of the banned xecuter urls maybe it’s causing an issue with stealth mode when you turn it off and I’m certainly not lying would not be worth my time & effort, someone from the uk could test this as well please.

    Here’s a video it’s not great and that’s not a bad thing I don’t want everyone seeing everything but you can see stealth mode is turned off, WiFi is connected and the firmware is 9.0.1 and you will see Mario Maker 2 freeze.

    @Reecey I just wanted to let you know myself and a few testers have all tried to replicate your situation on our switches and so far we have not been able to reproduce this.

    Hi,
    Can I please confirm the following steps are working now with this BETA (in this order)?

    1. Boot up Switch with new 2.9.2 SX OS.
    2. Update Firmware to 9.0.1 using ChoidujourNX 1.01.
    3. Reboot.
    4. Enjoy.

    I know v2.9 BETA was running into problems with updating firmware. Just want to confirm that issue is no longer a problem.

    Thanks.

    3. Yes
    4. Yes, no problems at all.

    Someone else has reported exactly the same issue on your forums under beta thread/2.9.2 discussion I have just read it and joined up and posted myself so its not just me. @Game_Over_Tom did you watch the video I posted earlier to give you an idea whats actually happening? I'm not saying the team is not trying, I'm sure they are thank you for the support! but it doesn't make any sense at all too me they were all working fine pre 9.0 firmware on 2.8Beta, so why is it happening now. Tom I am also trying my end to make sure it’s not me I have dumped Mario Maker 2 several times again last night but still the same I also installed 9.0.1 firmware again to check that but still exactly the same issue occurs. It only happens when you have stealth mode off and your WiFi connected in settings soon as you boot the game up in the intro or loading example it will freeze the console and you have to hard power down, it’s not just happening with one game it happens with a few online titles and you cannot go online gaming with any of them.

    As far as hacking/homebrew is concerned I would say I am advanced and know what I am doing so I cannot see anything I am doing wrong but the only things I have done since recently pre 9.0 firmware was update my switch to 9.0 ChoiDujournx 1.0.2 with 2.8Beta but changed to 2.9.0Beta on boot up, then 9.0.1 was released so I flashed firmware 9.0.1 with sxos 2.9.1Beta with ChoiDujournx 1.0.2 then I changed to sxos 2.9.2Beta when they came out and that’s it, the bugs been present since pre 9.0 I did register my Nintendo account to the Mario Kart Iphone I’m not sure if that’s relevant.

    Have you tried playing without your dump but with your own original mario maker cartridge in your system, maybe that works?

    So does this release update properly with 9.0? I remember the last release was messing up people's Switches when they updates to 9.0 and tried to boot SXOS. I've avoided it since then.
