    essentially, when the update comes out officially will it have any checks for CFW or layeredFS used in the past? I know people have the firmware at the current point so has anyone found anything that could make things go bad?

    Short answer: Don't update to 6.0.0 now, but once we're given the go-ahead that a particular CFW is compatible with 6.0.0, it will be safe to update.

    I'm not too interested in if I can use hacks after the update, I'm just worried about traces of hacks being used to ban me.

    • Checks for just using CFW, no.
    • Checks for LayeredFS, that already exists.

    As its been said again and always on these sort of posts...

    You use anything other then stock system
    Meaning if you use hacks cracks, cfw/homebrew etc, your always unsafe at a risk of being banned..

    Nintendo can sniff your console for any information they want,, and see any home brew or cfw..

    But thats only if you go online, or if your switch is connected to the internet...

    To avoid being banned or risk of ban with a hacked/cfw/home brew switch dont go online period

    You can use hacks after the update if there work on 6.0
    As im sure and as some information is already out on the matter of that they can or have detected some home brew and piracy methods...

    Like the other members have said.. dont update till we are sure or take measures to make home brew work or be safe)ish

    At this time there is no need to update..
