    So hypothetically would you get banned if you have a out-of-region game like European WarioWare Gold installed on a US console if you update? Well at least I was smart enough to not update and create a NAND backup.

    You can stay on 11.7 for now, but if you want to play online you'll ultimately have to update in like a week.

    Seems like Sky3DS+ might still have a use now. Unless they can tell which header your game is from and ban you.

    They still could ban you so I would just use that money on a nice SD card + putting CFW on my console.

    If you download then yes. Theoretically the only way you won't get banned from downloading a .cia with your 3DS (as in downloading via CDN) would be if somebody makes a FreeShop alternative that downloads and installs games from a ROM site, or a private server that has the games on it but functions like the eShop. If you download from Nintendo's server theyllt check the ticket validity, see that you don't have the ticket, and ban you.

    For the ones who saying they have the same account on 3DS and on Switch: you haven't!
    3DS uses NNID. Switch uses Nintendo Account. NNID can be linked to a Nintendo Account, but they aren't the same thing

    If you use a titleID to get the ticket (like what you could do with CIAngel) then there's a chance. I haven't used Villanes3D though so I don't really know. If it pulls from the eShop you risk getting banned.

    Could I downgrade?
    Would spoofing the FW be possible? IIRC there was as an app that did that.

    Depending on the error code, if you get banned you can't play online, access your Friend List and / or access eShop. Not a big deal if you don't use any of those.

    Any method of disabling the system's update service? could be handy to not excidently allowing the system to updaet to 11.8

    Sky 3DS+ with header should still be fine though right? If so, just not gonna use online on games not on my SD card i guess.
    Gonna stick with 11.7 as long as i can though.

    1. The system will never automatically update, it will only automatically download the update files.
    2. You can block the system from automatically downloading the update files, by setting a custom DNS. This will however prevent you from playing games online, so you would have to turn auto-DNS back on. It's easier to just keep your wi-fi disabled until you actually need to go online.
    3. The system only downloads the update if you leave it idle, including while in sleep mode. If the update gets downloaded, you can use FBI to delete the update files in order to get rid of the nagging.

    The 3DS's "library" isn't worth much to speak about anyhow...

    So why do they bother anymore ?

    The 3DS's been dead for 4 years now... who cares...
