Are these all the correct domain names?

    So I am using OpenDNS on my home network to block Nintendo's servers connecting to my 3DS when using the household wifi. I would like to know if all of these domain names that i have blocked are sufficient enough?

    https://gyazo.com/07f0b6c0d92f6d9b95b5aae496a7323e

    I have blocked both USA and European domain names just in case.

    Will blocking "cbvc.cdn.nintendo.net" prevent the my system from having a blocked browser unless i update in USA as well as Europe? Or does Europe have a different domain for the browser check?

    Ah okay, did not know that. But I am planning to downgrade to 9.2 when the stable downgrade is released. Thank you for taking your time to let me know!

    I'm still using my own server. Screw you, Nintendo! You're not controlling my system! :ph34r::ha:

    What do you mean by your own server? By that do you mean that you can get around them deactivating the browser after 30 days?

    It's hard to explain. And yes, it never made contact with Nintendo's servers, so, I can block them via DNS, but it doesn't do anything

    What domain name did you block?

    Does blocking "cbvc.cdn.nintendo.net" block the browser check? (kinda useless though now)

    Umm, again, a bit hard to explain.. It blocks all traffic outside my domain.

    Can't the dns be set-up to redirect that address to the new address used in the newer browser versions that returns the right result and allows the browser to be used?

    http://3dbrew.org/wiki/Internet_Browser#Forced_system-update

    Then it would return 0 instead of returning browser version and would let the browser run.
    It wouldn't be blocked from contacting the server so it wouldn't get blocked after 30 days.

    Hmm

    Well there is a workaround. Download the latest spider or skater .cia from 3DNUS and install it with FBI. :P

    Since memchunkhax2 allows you to install legit .cias on 9.3-10.3 you should be able to remain on 9.9-10.3 and just update your browser every time it nagged you to update.

    We could even install the latest NVer and be able to access the eShop through HANS again.

    I would suggest only blocking the 5 nus.* addresses and the cbvc one. Otherwise you will block eShop usage.

    Wouldn't it be possible to fake the server reply?
