    Hey guy was wondering if theres anyway for me to download updates for my games normally while running sx os i keep getting an error which i think means im banned and dont feel like chasing down updates on the internet.

    Unless im being stupid and theres a way to download updates by launching standard OS. either way thanks for your help

    If you are getting the error code 2181-4008 upon trying to update your games, then you are banned.

    I have a virgin Switch, never linked to a Nintendo account and some XCI's on it. DOOM is one of them and when I connect the Switch to the internet and try to update the game should I be able to do this or do I first need to have a Nintendo account setup on the device?

    Thanks

    You don't need a Nintendo Account to update games.

    When a game has multiple updates released over time, does the latest one always contain all previous updates on it, or do we need to install all updates available one by one ? (I usually update using NSP files from the internet)

    Only the latest one is needed. It includes everything updated before.

    Good luck! I'm also super banned (couldn't care less) and chasing down game updates is a royal pain in the a$$. Sure, that dark site has some updates but with all the stinking captcha links they use (and the malware installing pop-ups that come with those stupid links), it's just too frustrating.

    I sure hope that that BOB app can work a miracle or somebody comes up with an app that will at least make it easy to keep games up to date. I have yet to find a single site/link for current game updates. Not that game updates are SUPER critical but it would be nice to keep things patched on my local side. Heck, I'd even pay for that service!

    I boot in OFW and update from there (talking xcis, of course). Haven't been banned.

    You're not supposed to be updating games while running sx-os. You update the game running OFW and then you boot into SX-OS as they share same save/update data.

    You shouldn't be updating your games in cfw using the internet anyway stealth mode actually saved you from a potential ban. If you want to updates games in cfw get used to using nsp updates

    i've just been blocking the aauth telemetry via proxy and have had good luck. You have to let dauth happen now, but even then my Switch seems to not be banned after like 4 months now? I could just be lucky though.

    If you have previous nsp updates or dlc on a xci game no you don't have to delete them
