    Do all headers from offline games work or only from certain games?

    Date of ban report: Oct 28, 2015
    Flashcard: Gateway 3DS
    Game type: 3DZ ROM
    Header type: private
    SysNAND: 9.2
    EmuNAND: 10.1
    Other games blocked: yes
    Played games: The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes

    (I don't like it when you put me in the list in the front-page)

    I just get banned while I was enjoying some cool team-up action :(
    Notice that I used my own private header from a pre-ordered Zelda OOT that I bought on the release date.
    My DNS was still the TubeHax one as primary (and 8.8.8.8 (Google's one as secondary)), (I don't know) maybe that's the reason for me.
    I don't know if this hurt, but I use my private header for more games on my Gateway Card.

    I still have another retail game card left (bought new at store).
    I know, if I change the headers, the games will get corrupted. How can I use my new header without losing progress in all my games?
    Savedatafiler won't work for all my games (ctr-broken).

    How do people not understand software licensing that's been around for decades? From Nintendo: "[t]he Software is licensed, not sold, to you solely for your personal, noncommercial use on your Nintendo 3DS."

    In other words, Nintendo licenses people who pay for them through official outlets. If you buy a used license, then you're essentially sharing a license that's been stripped of its warranty. This is the same idea on how private headers work. How private is it if you and everybody else before you who owned that cart also knows the header? How is it Nintendo's fault that you're too cheap to purchase your own license but instead decided to share it with somebody who might break the EULA?

    If you can't afford it, then again, that's your fault. Why do other people have to make up for your bad choices in life? If you try to maintain a lifestyle that you can't afford, then that's nobody fault but your own. If you go out and buy a Lamborghini but somehow can't afford the insurance, then it's your fault when it gets repo'ed. If you purchase a pet but can't afford to take care of it, then animal rescue services are going to come down on you if they find out.

    If you're complaining about not being able to afford the luxury of a video game in a 1st-world country, then you may need to re-prioritize your life choices.

    Look at it this way: you provide a service. You license Person A to use your service. Person A shares his license with Person B, then does something stupid so that the license becomes invalidated. Why should you be responsible for people who don't go through legitimate licensing? If you sell one license, and Person A makes an even bigger profit than you by licensing it to a hundred different people and leaves you to reimburse those hundred people, then how is that fair? Why is it justifiable for Person A to not be at fault? If you want to sue Nintendo, then that is exactly like having 100 people sue you because of one person's clandestine activity.

    I'm not saying that people shouldn't buy used, but it's asinine to say that people should be able to buy used and not be at fault for not doing their research. You don't buy a 20-year-old car and expect brand-new quality. You don't buy a used Game of the Year edition of a game and expect the already-claimed DLC codes to work on your account. You don't buy a banned console and expect Microsoft/Nintendo/Sony to let you use their services without paying their RSVP price. If you do, then you're a moron, and no amount of consumer protection laws can protect you.

    Should have used a private header or cia, I know.

    What flashcard were you using :R4 SDHC DualCore (was testing new MicroSD.)

    What game were you playing: is DS Mode card. so (it shows as "Touch! Bomberman Land")

    What was your sysNAND firmware version when playing:10.3

    Header Name: (i'm not certain on DS Mode carts)

    Can you visit other online Nintendo services such as eShop and Miiverse: Badge arcade Works (havent tested after restart , read below.)

    Does that ban apply to just that game or every online game you try: seems to of applied others

    Any Additional info: i had Just updated from 10.2 as theres no real sense in staying on .2 downloaded Badge arcade after unwrapping i got "An Unknown error has Occurred" i try again and it unwraps w/o an error. i got the game to open and go thru the NNID login and error'd again! so i restarted the 3DS (power cycle) hoping it's just some weird glitch. After i'm back at the Home screen, i checked the eShop to redownload thinking maybe Bad Download (my ATT Uverse Line has been really flakey as of late and it Borked when using the Windows 10 MCT a few times when i had to reinstall it for my New PC.) and FFFT i get Error 002-0102. its showing in everything else, i havent checked the badge arcade after the first Login from before the the strangest part? the Last thing i did After updating the payloads but before letting the 3DS update was i tested if this R4 SDHC Dual core 2015 card i had still worked as i was going to send it to a friend. i didnt play any game on that because i didnt bother putting the microSD in just to see if it'd go as far as its Missing SD Card screen.

    Edit: it works Pokemon Omega Ruby Works But X i'm still getting the Error, Miiverse and eShop work. i have no idea whats going on but as of 3:34am edt anything right this moment just hangs at NNID Sign-in.

    I care. I think we "archieved" the same sort of ban, cause I've been playing Triforce Heroes with a public header too.

    But I kind of forgot when I was banned. It was about the 20th November I think - so if the 15 days ban is true, I should be able to play again about the 5th of december.

    Hi,
    I'm a sky3ds user and i have been banned for 2 weeks sure.
    I have only played Pokemon X and Y both online with public headers to trade with GTS.
    Most time with myself by switching games because some pokemon will evolve by trading and i want the pokemon that i've trained, not others.
    Only if a pokemon is not on my Nat. Dex, then i'll trade with others and than breed the traded Pokemon (if it is evolved)
    Last week i called nintendo (Netherlands) to get information about this ban.
    They said it will cost 2 weeks for the first ban.
    Second one is again 2 weeks.
    But the last one is forever.
    Anyway it is my first ban but i should be back online for now if i have to believe Nintendo.
    Although i'm banned, i still play games offline.
    Does that bother the banned console and make that the ban longer?

    wow i dont wanna get banned when a friend asks to play a certain game online. (rarely playing online on my 3ds)

    i only use CIA on my emuNAND, how can i be 100% safe? (i was dumb enough to use a save file once in MH4 which had every weapon in it etc.) so i guess i was lucky not to get banned? xD

    how can i be safest? i know not going online at all is safest, but what should i watch for, i will never use custom save files again and i am no big fan of cheats either.

    well with CIAs you are as safe as it gets. I don't think that save editing is an issue either.

    Hello everybody, I was banned by Nintendo for the third time on 14 December, I was testing a method that used no private headers but did not work ... The first two times I was banned, it was for lack of care, butThey returned after 15 days. Now I was banned for the third time and make more than 21 days. Someone here can tell if this is a permaban? Or if the time is that is greater than 15 days as in earlier times? I'm afraid to be permanent and have to buy another 3ds ... :( Sorry for my English, I am not native speaker. ^_^
