    Import this dummy seed with fbi. (You need the latest fbi https://github.com/Steveice10/FBI/releases/download/2.4.2/FBI.cia )
    Make a folder called "fbi" on the root of your sd card and inside that make a folder called "seed". Unzip the attached file and put the .dat in the seed folder. Open fbi and go to titles and hover over super mario maker. Select it with a and click the option "Import seed"
    Try booting the game and it will work

    Can you get banned for putting a dummy seed?

    You won't get banned as they can't track the dummy seed. You can get banned for playing online though

    How does the dummy seed work? And when the games comes out do I have to get the official seed?

    If you installed the cart leak and already had the preload you need a dummy seed for it to work. Carts don't need seeds and therefor a dummy one works
    If you only installed the preload then the dummy seed won't work as .cias check for legit seeds.
    If you only install the cart leak then the dummy seed isn't need.

    When the game comes out you don't need to get the official seed

    Between insane and insecure
    I would just like to make it very clear, that once you have everything up and running, DON'T GO ONLINE!!
    Don't be fucking stupid and get yourself banned.

    No. You need to install the cart leak for the game to work. Since you only installed the preload you need the legit seed for it to work which will be out in 2 days

    There was a cart leak of mario maker on that iso site?

    Just a random question how to I extract an already installed CIA? My friend wants Moon but the download speed is a$$ on his O3ds so I was wondering.

    Would he get banned from using that extracted CIA?
