    Ok, so we know that Nintendo has their own activity log in their servers, that everytime we use an App like CIAngel, FBI, Luma Updater, etc, Nintendo records it on their servers and then ban if the APP has an invalid TitleID or whatever.

    Well the question is this, if I use a banned LocalFriendCodeSeed_B with illegal apps (Freeshop,Luma Updater, CIAngel, etc) and the unbanned LocalFriendCodeSeed_B with legal apps (Games, Netflix, etc)

    Can I avoid the ban, as Nintendo would Login the info to the Activity Log of the banned seed?

    Seems probable, I don't see why not. That's just a lot of work :/

    The problem is that if the data is recorded in the Activity Log, it can potentially be sent to Nintendo at any time. Also, I don't think we can be 100% sure that you wouldn't be banned just for having the invalid Title IDs installed.

    You can probably get away with this by having one seed in Sysnand and one seed in Emunand.

    If you load all your homebrew through soundhax or a game exploit though it won't end up in the activity log as an invalid title id, so you could do that instead. But I'd uninstall any invalid titles you have first, and then use Cthulu to wipe your activity log.

    There's no telling exactly what they use to detect pirates. Activity log may be one of them, but they may have other ways as well. You can try, but there's no guarantee that it'll prevent bans.

    Just disable the setting that sends system usage info, and you should be safe

    You can enter the activity log and delete the unwanted title if you want.

    I could be wrong, but I think somebody confirmed that this will still leave a trace, you won't see it in the activity log but Nintendo still can. I'd stick with Cthulu just to be on the safe side. I'm not an expert and have no first-hand experience seeing this, it's all hearsay, but I'd advise sticking with Cthulu just in case.

    @Zorkats What would you like the title to be renamed to?

    @Zorkats You said you "forgot to finish the title". I am giving you the chance to rectify that because it is overly vague right now.

    "Deleting" titles in the activity log app itself only hides them from the book-like view (not even from the graphs) until you launch that software again, it clearly tells you this the first time you try


    And of course it wasn't proven that the activity log is sent to Nintendo, in fact I didn't observe anything similiar in some days of sniffing (not to mention it would be an illegal privacy invasion if you already disabled analytics)

    Enjoy online and just wait for the inevitable ban. That's what I'm doing.
