Hi everyone,

I have Googled this and even read a old thread on this forum - but a lot of the information is old and I'm also reading mixed messages.
I have a NEW 3ds XL with a9lh and I've never ever signed up with a NNID. I'm thinking of signing up for Pokemon Bank but before I do, I just have a few questions.

I've read mixed reports about people entering the eShop and losing their custom themes & DLC, and also am I right in thinking that I won't be able to get game updates any more using the eShop with a NNID? I have not purchased anything from the eShop if that makes any difference.

Thanks in advance!

Custom/pirated themes and pirated DLC sometimes get removed upon entering the eshop or data management in system settings (or at least they used to anyways). Not 100% what causes it but I can say that I only ever experienced it one time in the ~2 years I've been using CFW, and it was a single DLC that I had to reinstall (out of like 10 total and 3 just for the game in question).

That said, this has nothing to do with installing game updates. Updates for games are usually installed from the home screen when prompted, and at no point does it actually open the eShop.

I can second Aroth and if you do have a hard time installing DLC it can easily be found on that Iso site and installed through a .cia

There's also freeshop and ciangel. Anyways, stuff only get's deleted on entering the eshop if you have legit DLC and pirate DLC, themes, etc. If you wanna be safe use freeshop.

freeShop is useless in regards to DLC in my experience. CIAngel is the only one that has them afaik.

    See $200 at neweeg but oof 8gbram
  • Veho @ Veho:
    My current computer has 8GB of RAM and it's working fine. I think I could live with that.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    If no hefty gaming stuff should be fine

    just get some used shit off ebay or smth for ram

    that's what my dad's friend does

    Don't buy used ram it's too cheap now lol
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    But it's probably on board ram with that device
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Yeah, it's a SoC.
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    I've done more shell scripting in my current job in the year and a half I've been here than I did in my entire 8+ years at my last job. Wild.
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    Scripting isn't even in my job description, but it enables me to, say, take multiple hours of multiple touches to servers to run commands over the course of a month, to a few minutes and it's ready 2 days later.
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Shell scripting is very useful.
  • Veho @ Veho:
    For batch operations.
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    Massivley so. Glad I'm getting more experienced with it now
  • Veho @ Veho:
    "Hey can you make this [inane change] on 50 servers?" Yes.
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    The scenario in question is to do disk erases on some storage servers at my job that have I think 12x 14TB spinners, SATA SSDs, and nvme disks. The process I'm using to erase the spinners is to kick off an ATA Security Erase in the disk's firmware, then once that's done do a dd zero-fill as a second pass.
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    These spinners take like 22h per each of those operations
  • Veho @ Veho:
    I'll admit sometimes it takes me longer to write and debug a script that will do that for me, than it would take me to make the changes manually, but this is more fun.

  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    And running it over a serial console I'd either have to spin up a dozen and a half screen sessions or just run one operation at a time
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    Wrote a horrifyingly long one-liner to do all of that - spin up a shitload of screen sessions, run these commands to it, pipe output to kmsg so it shows up in the default tty's shell, and some other shit on top of that.
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Can't you run pssh?
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    Some day I'll write out a properly formatted shell script that lives on our firmware server or git repo and just call that, and have that handle every kind of server we run much more gracefully than my hobbled together atrocity does right now
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    pssh - nope. 1, what I'm doing gets done from our bootable provisioning environment, and you can only interface with that via serial console - we don't accept ssh connections on the servers in that state, and 2, I don't even know if our bootable environment has pssh baked into it
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    3, I've never even heard of it before lol
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    Anyway I can open serial console sessions to multiple devices at the same time, and broadcast my input to all of them (iTerm on Mac is the terminal emulator I'm using). It's just a matter of how many commands I'd have to run by hand, and how long they'd take otherwise lol
