    I apologize. I just hate doing hard work on something that I am ignorant, and that I do not know what I am talking about.

    Linus it's quite clear you meant no ill harm, many of experienced users have chimed in explaining why.

    You tried to do a good thing but this time it didn't pay off.

    Don't let this put you off in future, just maybe put further thought into it.... in the meantime relax and enjoy the beautiful weather (well it's nice hear anyway).

    It is quite nice here too. Do you happen to know any Japanese by the way? I was trying to boot different 3ds system .firm files. Some froze my 3ds and others shut it down. But one poped up with a japanese error with off written in english.

    Just wondering because of your Japanese DS. I assumed you went to Japan at one point.

    Hold on, can you please elaborate on this? Do you mean the Download Play game will always overwrite firm0 (thus making it unsafe to play via Download Play after installing b9s) or do you mean it only does so after following this guide? I worry I may be misinterpreting this.

    I think he means that the 3ds that is unhacked will try and inject nintendo's stock firm file back into the firm0 and 1 slots. But I think Luma CFW has preventions against this. I do see this as a new potential CFW installation method though, if what I just said ends up beiing true.

    Luma prevents this from happening.

    don't forget to use the Home Menu Layout feature!
    so when your games are resorted, you can restore one of your templates and everything will be sorted like it was before

    DO NOT FOLLOW THIS GUIDE. It will cause you to lose CFW and comes with the potential for a brick. There is nothing that this guide will protect, going online with CFW has been safe for years.

    That's not what I got banned for because I never did that. I hate that this misinfo is still going around years later. There were many people hit back in ban waves that never even played a Pokémon title.

    Yes, there are rare reports of people who got banned for no apparent reason whatsoever during the "ban waves", which is probably a good indication that Nintendo probably isn't going to do something like that again rather than risk a pile of negative press.

    but it seems pointless this thread.

    we haven't had a ban in a long time.

    and the case we did we people cheating online or play a leak of Pokemon.

    edit:

    I'm locking this because of the brick risk. i don't feel comfortable knowing our members might brick, cause of the risk.
