    Now that freeShop is no longer functional, I'd really like to see a replacement BCSTM music player. freeShop was the only accurate BCSTM player available. I only ever used freeShop for mostly playing BCSTMs.

    He's right though, but some people still believe in the boogeyman nonetheless.

    Note that it didnt work on all consoles, if you can make it work properly that would be awesome. and we could port it for anemone

    I’ve been downloading first party titles all day today on my switch. Did this update only affect 3DS titles?

    Those title keys are still up and active, as in there are two of them.

    Can confirm a certain sub-reddit advice works.
    1. Go to C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc on your computer.
    2. Edit the host file with Notepad text editor.
    3. The edits will have this format at the end of the file. Substitute numbers for # char and put the original web address right after.
    4. After saving the host, type in http://[that title site] in your browser.

    You can also just type that IP address into your web browser or CDN downloader config.

    Did you ever figure out how to make it default to the 3DS version?

    The two share the same IP address, but my browser defaults going to the other one.

    I'm super curious to know what happens if small 3rd party titles released after the blocking occurred will work with a shared encrypted title key. Will Nintendo block selectively or thoroughly?

    If it's going to be the selective route, freeShop will still have a limited role.

    If I continue on the 11.7 update can I still use it without any risk?

    It doesn't matter at this point, since the blocking is done on Nintendo's server side, nothing to do with the 3DS device itself

    It's not that you can't use freeShop. Many 3rd party, Virtual Console, and DSiWare games are still available to download.

    Nintendo is blocking us from downloading select titles, mostly their 1st party titles. The selection of games that you can get from the CDN server will continue to dwindle as more are added to their server-side ticket validation list.

    Also, don't put your 3DS to sleep mode when downloading games on firmware 11.8.0-41. There's a change in the NIM system module that'll detect if you're trying to download in sleep mode, and this can flag you for a ban.

    freeShop, CIAngel, Villain3DS, WiiU USB helper, tikDevil??, FunKeyCIA, 3DNUS??, and all other CDN downloaders are dying a slow death.

    If you're trying to grab a few updates, DLCs, and whatever unsecured games that are left, hurry up before the gates fully close.

    If someone happened to be interested in a list of titles that can still be obtained and was able to give me a titleID database, I could put something together.
