Hi, just a few minutes ago I booted into my SYSNAND with CFW to use JKSV, I did this to back up my AC:NH game data. However, I didn;t think it would get you banned, but I'm unsure.

I have a NAND backup, but since I created an EMUNAND, I have no space to put it back on my SD card, therefore I'm unable to restore it (I believe).

What should I do?

If all you did was use JKSV while offline, you probably aren't going to get banned, and restoring an old sysMMC backup might actually increase the risk of a ban if there's a log mismatch.

If I were you, I would just be more careful in the future. Don't use CFW with your sysMMC.

You will only get banned if you used piracy on your sysnand. Or used JKSV with a modified save to cheat online.

Piracy, cheating online, and using your ssl cert in another way (like how bots used to download games directly from the eShop). Those are the only way Nintendo is known to ban consoles. (The last one isn't really used at all by a normal end user, but I felt I should still include it).

Homebrew, themes, all of that stuff is just fine to use on sysnand. However the second you pirate or cheat, expect a ban.

There is always a chance of getting banned when you bring a hacked console online.

I've been online with Atmosphere (and before that, hekate loader) for years. I regularly use homebrew and save managers, too.
Which is perfectly safe.
Nintendo will really only ban for piracy and cheating online.


Also other known but much less common reasons are using the ssl cert from your switch to try and spoof another device to connect to Nintendo servers. Like how the old freeshop boys worked. And by EXCESSIVE fraud. Normally fraud will ban your account. But for excessive amounts of fraud they have banned the entire console before.
