It has been quite a while since I've last been on. My old 3DS XL is still on 4.01 Firmware and still using the Gateway 3DS Flashcard along with it's emunand. Last time I was on was almost 2 years ago when Gateway 3DS released it's own way of using cheats. But now I'm coming back and new things has happened so before I decide to goto CFW, I really need to have these questions answered. 1 - What is the risk of being banned playing cartridge/rom/.cia games online on a CFW? 2 - If any Nintendo Updates come through will it always be safe to update it via the CFW? 3 - Will my 3DS be banned by Nintendo for just using a CFW to shop on eShop? 4 - How many cups of sugar does it take to get to the moon? 5 - Will I still be able to use my flashcards on a CFW? 6 - Are there any known games that does not seem to work on CFW? 7 - Will I be able to backup my SYSNand and my emuNand that I originally had before moving to CFW and restore it should I choose to return it to it's original state? That's basically all the questions I have before I decide to move on.
