    There are many CIAs that need to be connected to the internet to function properly. I want to use them, but I don't want to get flagged by nintendo. Is there a way to do this?

    Simply. Connect to internet and run it. You don't get flagged unless you are blatantly cheating in games. Ať least never happend to me on 3 3ds for 3 years (and I am not hacking)

    It's already been confirmed that the 3ds sends data of the title being played when connected to the internet, and homebrew shows up as ????? which gets you flagged.

    That's not true. Plenty of people got banned who never cheated.

    The safest way other than OFW+HBL would be running Homebrew via the Luma3DS B9S Rosalina entry point as the system logs the title played and not what is actually running so the Homebrew launcher would be masked as another game.

    Luma has proven that it can hijack a boot process in favor of any other. Hopefully in the future you would able to spoof any Homebrew cia as the CIA of any other app.

    What is a fact is that the titleid of the running software is sent to nasc (check-in server)

    The name/icon of the software is not sent, you friends see it as "?????" because the Nintendo servers don't have an icon to send them, AND they don't have the icon from streetpass or already having the same title

    Whether sending an unofficial titleid is grounds for a ban is an unproven statement (and unprovable, without some insider at nintendo)
