    Do we have any confirmation that the huge banwave targeting CFW users (and userland exploits) is over? I would like to know because I have a friend code seed that I don't want to get instantly banned with.

    I just went and checked my goat system, which should have been re-banned by now. My goat hasn't been banned since the first ban (that I then reversed)

    what's running on your goat system? Leaving it online while running FBI, FreeShop, or homebrew launcher?

    the ban wave will not just suddenly end, you need to wait patiently

    Well even if the ban wave is over, what's stopping them from doing another anytime from here until ever? We really need to know what causes the bans for sure, and have a bypass for it. After that maybe people can work on an anti ban?

    Goat system is currently running online with FBI. It's reset for every couple of hours, then I run MK7 to see if I have been banned.
    Goat is current running a private CFW on 11.4 and B2S.

    Don't try to unban yet, Nintendo will just ban you again.

    That's actually what I am testing for, I already unbanned my system once before.
    I have several goat systems laying around that I can get a new friend seed b from
    That won't work. You need the friend seed b from system that hasn't been banned. Otherwise the friend seed b from your NAND will be the same as the banned one and thus stay banned.

    At your current screen. And in heaven
    I've read that the ban came because you are running illegal software (aka CFW) in their systems. I don't want to check yet

    I turned my wifi off since I noticed the ban started and not tested yet. But the day before, I used FBI to install DLC locally and use Quick Shutdown to power off my console. SpotPass on, friend list tile showing on, ect... Don't know the result yet.

    maybe because of this SIGHAX? this B9S? i think it is more safe on A9HL.
