    What I'm trying to say is I havent been banned because I haven't done anything yet that warrants a ban eg playing non certified backups online. Of course I'm sure alot of people were genuinely banned but there could be a few outliers. Anyways its everyone's best bet to wait for the next sx os update which should support native nsp installation.

    The dataset in of itself is small to begin with. There are nearly 20 million Switch owners and this doesn't even compose of a fraction of a percent. Even within the whole hacking community, less than 50% of everyone was banned. Add onto it that there was only one "banwave" and we cannot say there are any outliers when the data sample is too small to make any conclusions yet.

    Thanks for the answer. Will be cautious till I get banned then, which is inevitable I think as, like you say, others seem to have been banned by staying completely offline, just like I did. If (or rather when) I eventually get a ban, I can at least update my games and play my own digital games in CFW without worrying, haha.

    Well better be safe than sorry, right? :)
    It's a bit suspicious to me, when you are updating 4-5 games at a time, you can do what ever you want.. I'm just saying, that's what i do to stay a bit more safe.

    I have a raw nand backup from before I used SX - OS. would restoring my nand get rid of all the games I launched with Sx OS?

    I'm still on 4.1

    It will clear all save, update, and DLC data that you may have accumulated when you do because those did not exist when you made the backup. It would also clear any games you installed via DevMenu but you cannot install games on 4.1 for the time being.

    Hello guys!

    I know that the subject of banning is not clear and it is still certainly mysterious, however I would like to know your opinion/knowledge about something...

    I have already read that in order to play online "safely" (to minimize the risk of get a ban) from SX OS with .xci backups obtained in google -and if you are from the EU or GB- it is recommended to inject a cert of a cartridge of equal or greater size, that has not online playing, and finally be the same type (ie card1/card2).

    But my question is, with respect to playing these backup obtained in Google but in OFFLINE mode and in order to minimize the risk of ban, It is safer to play them as they are (ie without a header/cert) or by the otherwise is it also recommended to inject a cert of characteristics mentioned above?

    Thanks for your contributions and greetings.

    Okay, got banned today. This time yesterday eshop and going online worked, now it's not allowed.

    SX Pro

    5.1 FW

    Updated stuff in cfw mode.

    Installed DevMenu

    Installed NSP's.

    In fact, installed 4 nsp a week ago, then last night installed about 6 more, and also downloaded the free game Kitty Squad off of eshop. Today though I guess Nintendo said, "Enough!"


    Don't know if it's the start of a ban wave, or if they are kicking down on people who install nsp files.

    Did not use the CDN to get eshop games, downloaded all my nsp off various sites.

    So is Hekate a permanent softmod solution for running payloads and CFW such as atmosphere?

    NSPs will absolutely get you banned, don't even need to directly download them yourself. They can 100% identify you don't have reason to be in possession of the title the moment you connect to online and your system starts talking to their servers.

    If and when you get a chance, I would recommend you fill out the form in OP to better log your data so we can better understand what you did wrong/right. Although it seems that Nintendo are now banning people for installing .NSP
    No because you need to boot into RCM every time the console is turned off in order to load Hekate. AutoRCM simulates this effect to some degree, however it doesn't give you the freedom of booting without Hekate thus not making it a true coldboot.

    Whoops, forgot to answer your question. Er, we don't know yet. Bans started happening before we were able to actually restore our NAND properly (the previous method was less safe). Theoretically, it would be safer to use a NAND backup prior to using any hacks but there is no data to support this yet. I personally would advise you to do this but keep in mind that it is not a good long-term approach to avoid being banned as the Switch's eMMC may eventually stop accepting any restorations.

    Yes, repeated full NAND restoring will induce flash wear-out on the eMMC module. Its not realistic to keep re-flashing your entire NAND chip over and over, on top of the usual wear and tear it will experience from being used normally.
