    Has anyone managed to contact team xecuter with any success? I wanted to recommend some features for their potential nsp installer but they haven't replied. Also does anyone know if sx os clears your system logs at every boot?

    My rule of thumb for e-mailing is giving that person at least a day. Plus, they have tons of e-mails to sort through from various people for various reasons so they may or may not need more time. To answer your other question, they don't specify that type of functionality in any of their changelogs so only they could answer that question. However, since people have been banned for using SX OS purely offline, that may not be the case.

    What is the difference between a cert ban vs console ban?

    Certificate ban means that certificate you dumped from a cartridge can no longer be used to play any games online, including any games injected with as well as the game it came from. Console ban means the console is not allowed to use any online services except for game and system updates.

    The jury says no, I think, but people have been banned for using SX OS completely offline so it would look the same to Nintendo since they cannot differentiate between backups that are legal or illegal if they stay offline.

    Has anyone experienced a weird clicking noise whenever the switch is put to sleep when in auto-rcm by TX. When I push the power button and put it to sleep the fan goes off and weird noises start to click at regular intervals.

    How common is that? Could it be they didn't admit they used layeredfs or actually did play online

    What is so suspicious in about updating 4-5 games at the same time? If i buy 5 games from a store should i wait 24 hours after each game to update? Come on. :)

    Do we know whether it's safe to play your own digitally bought games in CFW (SX OS)? I've bought Zelda + DLC digital but switching back and forth between OFW and CFW (using the jig and PC to inject the payload) is quite a hassle for just playing that one game.

    Yeah I’ve been batch updating all of my legitimate titles since I got my Switch.
    Every now and again I go through them all one by one (I’ve disabled auto-update) and check them. Usually there’s at least a handful with updates.

    Iam sure they wont check Headers in Game Updates. I would sell some Switch Games but I can Update Them without Card (There are temporary in home Menu). I wont have Dumps of the games (The Cards are sold)

    I'm not denying or accepting that. Do you have any reasoning as to why it only happens sometimes in auto-rcm and never in a normal sx os boot?

    Check the tab "Statistics for the Lazy"

    Haven't heard anyone report a ban doing this but since people have been banned for using SX OS completely offline combined with the fact that Nintendo cannot differentiate a cartridge backup from the real thing offline, it is theorized they can ban with evidence the user used SX OS alone.

    Since updating games does not require a header, I would say normally no but that type of data can still be transmitted so they cover all their bases. While the Switch is designed to transmit more data to Nintendo for banning purposes, an oversight like this one seems counter-intuitive...unless it is designed to give a false sense of security to catch more hackers. But we don't know enough information to say at this point.

    That almost certainly is the case. I know a bunch of people who have been playing sx os backups offline and haven't received a ban (including me). They probably didn't know what they were doing or are simply lying to spread fear and paranoia just because they were banned. Follow the instructions and you'll be fine

    Let's not say one or more people are lying because then we are at risk for everyone lying. A reminder that many people are not banned for using LayeredFS so if you have not been banned yet despite doing the same actions as someone else who was banned may just mean you were not banned yet.
