    I had an idea after reading about the banwave and I'm wondering if it might be related to using custom version strings, combined with sending system info to Nintendo via SpotPass. I myself have all SpotPass features enabled but I did not enable the titular option in Luma, and I am not banned. The guide instructs users to enable this option (even though it's pretty pointless when you have no EmuNAND) so it's likely that many people have this turned on.

    I'm sure Nintendo can see a lot more than we think, it's just not always an economically sound decision to take action.

    Inside your bootloader (´◉◞౪◟◉)
    I set my system version to "Maximum Stability" and I'm still not banned. I think Nintendo makes an exception for this one :3

    The only NAND in user string thing I had was on an unbanned 3DS, my banned one didn't have that.

    The number of ban wave threads are pretty annoying for anyone looking for other threads to comment on.
