    Currently, I have no NNID on my system. It's still possible to be banned, right? Public headers.
    If I link my NNID and get banned, what happens to the ID? If I link it to another system, (via phone call) is it still safe? I have over $400 of legitimately purchased games my ID so I want it as safe as possible.

    When you get banned, I'm pretty sure you only get banned from online multiplayer, not from the eShop itself. If you do, even so, the bans are generally only temporary, starting at a low amount (around a week, I believe?) and getting higher the more infractions you receive.

    In general, it's good practice to not go online at all if you're playing games with public headers, but otherwise you should be fine.

    You can only get banned if you use a sky3ds card without using private headers or if you cheat online.

    Using any 3ds flash cart with a public header gets you banned. (Sky, gateway, dstwo+ gw mode).

    The banning thread has people with CIAs getting confirmed bans.
    I don't care about the eShop, just my NNID. They might not let me transfer it then I won't be able to play online.

    Your first ban only lasts 2-3weeks with no online play. Only eshop access. Which also means, no Netflix, no YouTube, no buying dlc in game

    Can you quote some of the cases? i believe there are no way to get banned if you use cia of your region, maybe these people get banned for playing MHX or something similar

    This case (Mine) should be taken with a grain of salt. I have good reason to believe that the previous user of my console used a sky3ds with a public header before getting a private one and Nintendo just happened to defer his ban until I bought the console. Maybe even before that.

    Okay, probably. Since there's 178 pages in that thread and that was the first case with CIAs in like 4 pages, I guess so.

    Cias are 100% safe for now. Even out of region cias.

    Lies! Nintendo may start hunting cia pirates at any moment.:ohnoes:

    Because I and many other cfw users play online almost every day since the banning started without having any problems.

    It's because cias don't use headers. So there's no way for Nintendo to tell if you're using a legit eshop purchased game or not. The only way they can catch you is if your CFW doesn't support region free patching to use out of region games online.

    If a 3ds file is converted to cia with a public header, doesn't it still have that header? That's the only thing I can think of.

    Headers are only needed for .3ds/.3dz files! I think the conversion gets rid of the header

    I would assume so.. But if someone is Adamant about using strictly cia files and getting banned.. Wouldn't that leave the assumption that the header is still in play?

    Chances are no... And the person banned did something else.

    This. They probably at some point played online with a public header game. But at the moment of getting banned they were playing a cia game. So they could have thought that it was the cia.
