    Okay. Thanks. If only I had turned those setting off before. Now I just turned off Wireless communication, sending system data over spotpass, and sharing played title to friends.

    Yes, the title ID is sent over the Nintendo Network and parsed by the receiving console. It will show up as "unable to retrieve software title" otherwise. I believe this is probably the biggest flag that determines whether or not a user is using CFW.

    What if the ban is triggered by Spotpass but only if you played Spotpass games like Fire Emblem, Monster Hunter (I think it has Spotpass), Mario Kart 7, SMB or such?

    Because, in my case, I always disable Spotpass (it annoys me) in games when they ask. However, I had Spotpass download on.

    I'm in the EU and maybe the ban wave hasn't come but it could be.

    It could've been some minutes in sleep mode, enough to start spotpass

    Eh I'm not sure if this is related, but what kind of error is this? "an error has occurred forcing the software to close" I only get this trying to play Pokemon Sun/Moon via New 3DS but works fine on Old3DS
    under Boot9Strap btw

    While I think it's probably too late for a lot of users (data has probably been collected for a while now to populate the "CFW user model"), I think sniffing the data that is transmitted would be worthwhile.

    1. Data is sent with title ID and "privacy flag"
    2. Data is sent with no title ID and "privacy flag"
    3. No data is sent

    If they did cultivate all this data until now, it would mean that even unbanning yourself with another consoles LFCS would be pointless as your console ID would be flagged as CFW already no?
    Or do they need constant telemetry feedback to determine if someone would have to be banned or not?

    I bet Custom VC games are a good way to find out if you are not legit !

    Any VC nes,snes,gb/gbc have option to send gameplay information i bet a lot of people didint knew or checked and pressed A button ...lol to those who sent final fantasy III snes gameplay info to nintendo anyway i think it should be added to poll since it is a option for sharing info to nintendo.

    Checked this morning and I'm still not banned. I had these options turned on, but turned them off last night. Guess I'll know in the near future if I've been banned or not. Since I've had those options enabled in the past I really don't want to place my vote yet either.

    There already is, but you should wait till the ban wave stops or you are likely to get banned again.

    Same. *shrug*

    I can see the value in collecting title ID data without the end-user knowing.
    This is just speculation. It depends on what data they are sampling, what time periods they are sampling from, what factors raise flags, and how those factors weigh.
