    If you updated to the fork please denote when.

    Sorry for another poll because I know there's been a ton recently, but I'm incredibly curious about this. I've been asking around and a couple that have been banned confirmed that they were using the old (Cruel's build) version of freeShop prior to their ban. So I'm wondering if this is the cause. Here's my scenario, and I haven't been banned yet.

    • 3DS has been in a cabinet for the past two months or so completely dead.
    • Took it out to update to B9S, and used this time to update everything that was outdated, including updating freeShop to @arc13's fork. I never ran freeShop prior to updating.
    • Used the new version of freeShop to install OoT and the new Mario Sports game.
    • Played Smash online for a short period of time, and accessed eShop multiple times.
    • Spotpass was enabled the entire time until last night. Now it and WiFi are both indefinitely disabled.
    This isn't to say I won't be banned, but I'm wondering if this may be the cause, because like I said, a couple have confirmed already that they were indeed using the old version of freeShop prior to their ban.

    If you want to do this, include all the options. Such as never using the original and starting with the fork.

    Fuck, I accidentally didn't add "not" to the second option.

    Anyway, poll was updated to be more specific.

    I know. I reported the thread to get it fixed. I accidentally forgot to add "not" to the second option.

    Edit: It's been fixed.

    There's no real difference between the original and fork in how they work, same titleID and everything. If one would get you banned, the other would.

    Hm, alright. Then I guess there is no relation. Especially judging by the poll.

    The amount of polls on the front page is getting ridiculous, there's not enough information to start asking about specific things like this. Might as well make a poll asking if everyone who got banned ate cereal for breakfast on Monday

    I'm so high, I don't even know!
    I haven't been banned(yet) either but I'm using the OG freeShop on my 2DS and arc13's fork on my N3DSXL(updated from original freeShop). I don't play many 3DS games but I have downloaded a handful of titles from freeShop(never played online though), I mostly get systems for homebew and emulation. I guess only time will tell for us non-banned users.

    I didn't even know that there was another fork of Freeshop, what's the backstory behind this ? Why/when was it created, is it better, what are the changes....?

    Except there's no real way to gauge these variables without polling. It's hard to create a poll that umbrellas all scenarios.

    Ooh, I see, thanks. What version is currently hosted on TitleDB ? I usually download my homebrews there

    The old version. This fork hasn't been added to it.

    I am not entirely convinced that it's just freeShop alone that caused this ban. It's mostly any homebrew installed on the system that Nintendo saw, that caused this ban.

    We won't really know until more time passes. But If they started rolling out Monday I'd figure that there'd be a lot more bans than what we've seen so far.

    FreeShop could be one of the "unauthorized" applications they are talking about. Nintendo's vague banning makes it nearly impossible to figure out just what people were banned for. I just hope that they only stick to banning and not bricking systems again
