    so i had a switch on 4.1 with SXOS booted, played a few backups, always left it offline as i figured that i could just reflash the old nand and go online when/if i ever needed to. However, over the weekend some children got a hold of my switch and instead of skipping the update dialog that shows up when starting a game they updated it to 5.1 and connected to wifi which means i loose all hope of ever getting a coldboot method for one...and the logs have probably been sent to Nintendo

    Do i have to worry about a ban? I can't even flash old nand now because the efuses are burnt, that was my original clean log "reset". I really don't care about online play but i wanted to preserve that option in case i did and keep a low FW to keep my options open for coldboot etc.

    I gues on earth.
    If you have to ask, then yes, you are banned.
    (Because there are definitely not hundreds of threads asking the same).

    But really. You are might get banned. We don't know. We can't know.

    Still won't help as you can just search "ban" in switch forum and literally hundrets of threads would come with the same question as yours.

    Safe bet? Just expect a ban.

    all other information is a blur to me... i'm very surprised that so many people still "accidentally" get themselves banned, 1.5 months after the initial wave of bans... some children..

    who said that there would never be a coldboot method above 4.1?

    This is why Nintendo will not allow passcodes on the Switch.

    But OP, how did these kids connect to WiFi? My kids don’thave a clue what my WiFi password is and one is 16. All requests for access come through me.

    I'd say you're most likely flagged. Maybe you wont be banned now but when the next big banwave comes...Who knows, no use speculating. All we can do is wait and see

    we all are flagged.... but i think whats triggers the ban is how no sense you can be
    i mean... play pirated games online
    play games before the official launch
    use layredfs to "inject" games in another game in order to play it

    if you just play your games xci or nsp in airplane mode, use a homebrew or two... you may never get banned

    the next ban wave i think will be in pokemon/smash launch

    be a pirate, but a smart pirate

    As long as you are flagged you will get banned. Right now, now one knows what triggers the flags/bans. Playing pirated games online is an instant level 1 ban, using FreeshopNX is an instant level 3 ban, playing games online before official launch might not get you instantly banned. Bottom line is, if you go online while running any kind of CFW or even homebrew, Nintendo will know and ban you accordingly. Oh and having cleared logs, that is also a cause for flag/ban

    That's because .XCI games work a little bit differently than .NSP ones since .XCI ones are cart dumps and SXOS tricks the system into thinking a cart is inserted onto the system, hence why the flag/ban chances are lower

    Like with every other fking thread ....

    If you go online with homebrew/hacks/cfw or by tampering with your unit..
    Then there is a possibility of a ban, you mess with your console knowing you may get banned if you dont like that then leave it the fck alone, if you wanna take the risk then your find out..

    Soon as you link online with anything that isnt stock your possible for a flag for ban.This includes the logs and rubbish that everyone is talking about . if its never been online at all. and you restore back to your virgin nand a risk of ban is very slim i cant see how they would detect something that is clean and never logged online.

    end of
