Will sharing a dock between an OFW switch and a CFW switch get the OFW banned?

I've seen that recently they added an "Update Dock" option. I am wondering if this new option would get my OFW switch banned.

Short andwer: Impossible.

Thank you very much! I guess dock updates need to be done with the OFW switch right?
You should be able to update it via CFW as well. But only the new OLED dock can be updated, not the previous one. So, assuming you don't have own an OLED model, then the short answer for this is that you will never update the dock, so don't worry about that.

If im not wrong you can only update the firmware on OLED docks, old docks does not have the option to be updated.
My switch is one of the first available (around the first 6 months of release) and offers an option in the settings for a dock update, but there's never any update to be found. Not sure what an update to the dock would do to benefit things though to be honest.

Short answer: No. Long answer: We can't be 100% sure, but we are 99.9999999999999999999999999% sure that no.
Except for the OLED dock, which actually can be updated, in which case maybe.

Probably this option was included in an update for the OLED model's dock and wasn't hidden in the original model's firmware because it's possible to use an old Switch on a new dock. The original dock has nothing to update, so if that's what you have, you can ignore the option.

    But the generator itself is relatively small.

  • Veho @ Veho:
    And in any case you couldn't get proper cooling on the Moon so a powerful nuclear generator is out of the question.

    the moon is like -170C at night i'm sure that's enough

    And the only way to take advantage of that cold is to burrow cooling fins into the ground.

    Contrary to popular belief, the vacuum of space is not cold, it's nothing.
    Gift
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Heat does radiate from warm objects but the effectiveness of radiation cooling is negligible.
    Gift
  • Veho @ Veho:
    You need a medium to take up the heat and take it away.
    Gift
  • Veho @ Veho:
    And the denser the medium, with a higher specific heat capacity, the better.

  • Veho @ Veho:
    This is why water cooling is better than air cooling.

  • Veho @ Veho:
    And why cooling is a major problem in space.
