    I have never been online with SX OS
    I have not backed up a clean NAND
    I have installed some NSP
    I have used DevMenu
    Never been online with XCI or NSP

    Will there be some sort of way to ever go online with NSP or XCI or even with my own cartridges?

    My impression is that when EmuNand comes out I will be safe but I feel like that is probably not true.

    So is there something I should wait for?

    I'm new so I don't really have the knowledge as some do around here, just thought I would ask if anyone really knew or could even give some insight. Like would it be possible?

    It might be possible to safely go online after wiping everything by following this guide and doing the DO A SYSTEM INITIALIZE option. It might also be possible later to go online using a clean emuNAND created by similar means.

    I doubt it will be safe without NAND backup

    IMHO, it will never be safe to play online with with a hack unit. Sooner or later it will be banned as well. If you want to play online, buy a 2nd unit and do not hack it.

    People might be able to figure out exactly what data is safe, really tho there will probably never be 100% safety. But you never know, something weird could happen.

    You can safely play online with CFW if you don't pirate games :P (I've been doing it for about 4 months)

    at the moment restoring a clean nand is the best way to avoid ban, so if we can keep the sysnand clean and a emunand offline maybe is the safest way... but we didnt know the true at the moment, maybe nity can detect when we enter to RCM mode.

    Doing what I said might be just as good as using a clean NAND backup.

    Rcm isn't detectable because it happens before horizon. Autorcm, maybe.
