Is it safe to play online with a cfw or not?
Depends. If you still use a Sky3DS with a public header and use cheats online, the fact you're in Luma won't protect you indeed
But if you're just using a cia and not doing anything weird, yeah, that's safe.
If you're just playing CIA GAMES then yes , it is 100% safe.
About sky3ds or gateway or online cheating I can't say the same
Well, that was quick. Thanks
CFW + CIAs alone - No bans
Cheating - Maybe (especially if you cheat in free-to-start or free-to-play games like Nintendo Badge Arcade)
FlahsCards - Yes if you use public ROM dumps without altering their headers to a private one, or specially Sky3DS if you rely on their standard template.
If you patch the ROMs to use private headers (that is, a header dump that only you have access to) then you're safe.
People seem wary of using tickets files to get content from Nintendo's servers with homebrews like FBI, tikdevil, freeshop and others but I dunno how those processes actually work so I can't confirm anything about these matters.
I know how these processes work, and I can confirm that zero console identifying information is sent when you download a game through there. There isn't a risk of a ban - at least with FBI/FreeShop/CIAngel. With TikDevil you download stuff through the eshop, and we have no idea what's sent there - I'd avoid it.
It doesn't matter what CFW you are using, it's always safe to play online, download updates, download DLC, ect. with CIAs and CFWs.
Yes, if you use cheats online I think.
