    Kinda sucks I can't play SMarioMaker or MK7 online, but I guess I can live with that. But it's gonna be a problem if I can't sustain myself with FBI, FreShop, or CIAngel. Unless one of those has a 3dsx version and I can figure out how to get back into HBL. Also, what exactly is your definition of an "unsafe" Cia, because other than pirated games, I have a theme changer, HBL, Luma3ds Updater, Ciaangel, etc. Will those also trigger Ninty when launched?
    So, besides unbanning my 3ds, what will my sister's private seed do? (change friend code, etc.) And if we both want to play together/ StreetPass / our 3dss are on and on the Internet at the same time, will it TRIGGER Ninty?

    Like I said, homebrew CIAs or VC injects.

    Nintendo might be able to detect that two consoles are using the same LFCS_B, it's sent to their servers when you connect along with a lot of other data after all.

    If you want a private localfriendcodeseed, buy a 2DS off your local gamestop for $40 and obtain it's localfriendcodeseed. Make sure your device has spotpass off in the settings (not in-game spotpass)

    Besides unbanning your 3ds it wont do much else.If you are truly banned then there is a reason such as using cheats online in mario kart or leaving spotpass on.If you dont do any of those things again then you wont get rebanned.

    Nobody I know has been banned just for having CFW. People who have been banned clearly did something to get banned. Whether they used FreeShop to pirate games from the server, went online with a non retail version of a game (like the review copy leaks, hacked *.cia files, etc), went online with pirated games or homebrew, etc. they clearly did something. We still don't know that it was specifically caused by Spotpass either because there were people with it enabled that didn't get banned. Odds are the people banned did something to trigger it.

    Well. No one has CFW and doesn't use any of its features. Most likely Luma/B9S itself isn't being detected, but it would be a rather simple matter to do so.
    SpotPass makes no difference.

    I bet that it doesn't have anything to do with B9S vs. A9LH, but perhaps the system tries to detect your firmware and sees that you have a sighaxed firm which is sent to Nintendo, and since it's a firm that shouldn't exist maybe they ban you?

    Your ban is most likely to do with the fact that:

    1) you had spotpass settings on
    2) you played a virtual console inject while online

    If you did either of those, that's a more likely explanation.

    But isn't someone track communication and info sent even when disabled spotpass ? If yes, maybe disable that address in router firewall should block it all.

    I am surprised that I haven't been banned yet. I used TinyFormat and forgot to turn Spotpass off and turn off the Friend list notifications.

    I got banned on a private seed today. I did not cheat online (or at all), spotpass was off, and no game was played early.

    Two main categories of possibilities: 1) They were able to detect irregular activity (custom cias like freeshop and FBI, games I owned but did not purchase, etc) through some other process snitching on me. 2) This is an extension of my ban from last year.

    OR someone else was using the private seed even though it is private? Is that how it works? Can someone explain what a private seed is please.

    Not possible. This seed is 100% private, as I dumped it from one of my own consoles. Never gave it to anyone else.

    A public seed, for comparison, is shared with everyone by posting it online, so multiple people use them at once. Those are inevitably banned, either from people doing bannable stuff on the seed, Nintendo seeing a bunch of people with the same seed, or both.

    I was banned once having never cheated. There have been ban waves specifically targeting people using CFW; at least once.
