    So, as the title says how can I update my games with a banned switch? I managed to update my firmware to 8.1.0 right now but I do not know how to update games.... any help? I'm new to these stuff mind you (reason why I got banned. Forgot I am on CFW and auto updated)...

    The same way you got the games on there: download the updates from unspecified internet or discord sources, and install them with a title manager such as Tinfoil or Goldleaf.

    That's fine. Search for updates to your legit game in the same manner that OrGoN3 stated, and you'll be good to go. Downloaded updates definitely work on legit games.

    Well there are really two options either finding the update yourself or use a "freeshop" type shop like HBG Shop.

    Yeah, HBG Shop is significantly easier, since they mostly are just focusing on new stuff now that they've basically completed the collection. Easy to find, too.

    If you have access to an un-banned switch (like a friends switch), play the game on that switch, downloading the updates. Then do a console to console update (even banned switches can do this). It brings both switches up to the same version.

    One particular Japanese game I found has an update, but for the life of me I can't find its update NSP for download. I requested it on another site but no response yet. And since my console is now banned it's impossible for me to download the update through my console at all.

    Edit: Using HBG Switch solved that issue. Can't find an update or DLC NSP? No problem! I like how it can batch install updates.
