    Most likely titleid. Possibly occured from using DevMenu and/or layeredfs

    That's really surprising that they're willing to tell you the exact ban reason. Did you have to ask something specific to get that information?

    so they are cheking the titles ID, that is why they can´t Ban us if we restore a clean nand dump. the problem is that we don´t know where is that information on de OFW. maybe we can modiffy it to show that were jut playing one game or somthing like that.

    "hey Nintendo do you know why my 3ds broke"
    "Yes, the molecules in the plastic of your Nintendo 3DS family system split from each other, causing a rift in the middle therefore splitting the top half from the bottom half, rendering your console unusable."

    Were you ever online while using Dev Menu? And was it the nsp version (definitive version or other?) of it, or LFS?

    So for clarification, do you mean, when connected to wifi, they checked the id of all titles installed and found an illegally installed id and or one that should not have been there?

    >something something there's a thread for this

    This isn't the first time Nintendo was upfront about why they banned someone. Another user called Nintendo and was told they were banned for going from having error logs to having completely clean error logs. Also, if this is really referring to DevMenu, its not surprising in the slightest but I suppose I could this bit of detail for anyone who remotely thinks they won't be banned for using it.

    While I dont disable wifi/airplane mode, I dont believe I actually went "Online" after using dev menu (without a restart), it was 100% not the nsp version, only LayeredFS, i NEVER installed ANY nsp of it

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Whats odd, is lets say it was DevMenu that triggered the ban, why was it picked up as an illegal "ROMID"/titleid, if layeredfs on Pokemon Quest? It would only be picked up in logs as pokemon quest's id. :/

    Alright.

    Thanks for the PSA.

    For everyone here asking how to not get banned. It's very simple.

    DON'T MODIFY YOUR CONSOLE IN ANY WAY. DON'T USE CFW.

    It's that simple, everyone.

    People shouldn’t be surprised that their console is banned. IF you want online play den the same platform, buy two consoles. The money saving is still worth it for the people that “test the games before they buy”.

    It's cool how open Nintendo is about this stuff. And they won't sue your ass off for it.

    Sounds like there's something deeper going on. Maybe they really know what you're doing even with LayeredFS.
