    Nintendo is starting to ban certs from CDN access. This will make your console useless for downloading games, updates for your games, dlc, and sysupdates. Please be cautious when using anything that access the CDN i.e. FreeShopNX, CDNSP, etc. You've been warned.

    Edit: Here is some proof even Sysupdates are blocked: https://streamable.com/k623d

    Update 7/30/18 : I've received news that more "superbans" are happening, please be careful!

    No need for that, it just started today. Before it was just Nintendo banning you from Online Services and the eShop.

    thats new - you could still access eshop with other tools before the new security improvements - but now they do full bans which means you cant even use those tools anymore :P

    They've been banning certs for a while now friend.

    I'm pretty sure you can still download game+system updates while banned.

    Plus it also seems like users can purchase from Nintendo's website, and then use eXhop to install them.

    Edit: Striked through, because apparently people don't like it when you want to discuss/get things clarified.

    Did you even read my post? I said they are banning you from CDN access, which mean no, you can't download games and system updates.

    This is a different ban type, it is them stopping full CDN access.

    That's how it always starts when they start doing bans. If everyone was using a bad cert, then there's only the bad cert to ban for now. When/if people start using their own, then more certs will be banned.

    Ok, there seems to be conflicting opinions on whether you can still do system updates. Has anyone got first hand experience with this?

    So basically this means banned users will have to rely on devmenu heavily, but if the said nsp game,update, and dlc requires a new firmware they are shit out of luck

    Can't really blame them, the whole Tegra fiasco was a colossal kick in the nuts and they are lashing out with extreme force.
