Yeah, that also. That's definitely the "safest" method even though it's still very detectable. They just can't go around banning random consoles in case some kid bought a used game that someone backed up. Better a few pirates stay unbanned than 1 legit console get banned, Nintendo won't want any of that shitstorm.
Exactly: Nintendo will be unable to tell who is the original owner. Is it the one who first got onilne? And what if he just rented it?
And what if a certificate generator will be made one day? The first one might be a pirate and the second one could be a retail customer and he'll see himself getting banned for no reason.
I'd love to see someone try this out and see if it works (spoilers: it will almost certainly will, although for how long, that we cannot tell)
EDIT: by "this" I mean putting the ID back instead of a blank one.
