    Hi everyone. First Post. I need some assistance. I installed haxchi on my Wii U in 2016 and after purchasing a Switch moved over to that.

    However, I want to use the Wii U for vWii and also running homebrew in 2019. I also want to use the eshop. My question is even with blocking updates by DNS what is the chance of getting banned by Nintendo? I love using my Switch so would hate to be banned by Nintendo for using my Wii U.

    Somebody put me out of my misery here.

    You cannot be banned on Wii U unless you mod games and play them online. Switch is a different story.

    Thanks. So the only bans are modding games themselves and playing online with them? I won't be doing that but has anybody been banned for just installing homebrew/games?

    Even though you can associate them for sharing eshop credit, joining the new club nintendo, etc - a NNID is not a Nintendo Account

    When you are banned on the wii u, your switch is unaffected.

    Thanks guys. Still a lot of great stuff on Wii U. Also the best way to play OG Wii.

    Edit - Do I need to run Haxchi before I run any games installed on the hard drive?
