    I have a friend who like many, was banned for playing Pokemon Sun Moon online before the release date. Since he could not get a LocalFCSeed for his own he used the public one that was shared around here (I think it was on a Discord room?).

    Just now he told me he can't log back into Pokemon getting the same error (Error Code 002-0102) from before. So I assume everybody who's using the same public FCSeed is also banned. Can anybody else confirm? So I guess somebody either screwed up and got banned online while using the Seed, or Nintendo noticed many users with the same Seed and banned the whole Seed.

    I also wanna know about those who are using shared LFCSeeds (I saw many people sharing one with a friend).

    Personally I unbanned myself with my own LocalFCSeed since I had done a System Transfer before. I just checked and I can still log into the Friend List at least.

    Well, it was bound to happen. Also, did you reboot your system then check if you're banned or not? It won't be apparent until you do so.

    I turned it on after my friend told me just to check if I was banned. But aside from checking my Friend List I did nothing else. I guess it only affect those with the public LFCS but I'm still kinda scared to check mines haha.

    I'm still unbanned after using my 2DS's (it doesn't go online). I guess I'll wait and see.

    You WILL need A9LH and a secondary 3DS for this that you don't mind ever using again. You will also lose your NNID, friend list and friend code, and all of your eShop purchases. It's what you get for being a smelly pirate.
    • Dump the ITCM, Secureinfo_A, and LCFS from an unbanned system.
    • Extract CTCert and the DeviceID from the ITCM like so.
    Code:
    dd if=itcm.mem of=CTCert.bin bs=1 skip=14360 count=104
    dd if=itcm.mem of=DeviceID.bin bs=1 skip=14340 count=4
    
    • Inject the LCFS, a blank nnidsave, and the Secureinfo_A into your banned system.
    • Using GM9, browse to nand:/data/ID0/sysdata/00010032, and delete the file named "00000000" (you will lose all your friend codes and be given a new code by doing this).
    • Load CTCert and the DeviceID into the ITCM of the banned system using some sort of A9LH payload. Any one will do, and doesn't necessarily have to be a CFW.
    Also, the current "loader" isn't going to be released. The developer said she doesn't want the attention, but that there's enough public information out there for anyone to figure it out. Sorry guys, but that's the only missing thing at least. If somebody else figures it out and makes it public, then so be it, but this will most likely only lead to it being patched and a possibly worse circumstances.

    Thanks! I know this though. Some dude is able just pull them out of his ass. He's not generating them, his name is like etmw or some shit.

    Mmmm, we have reason to believe he's full of shit. Some site popped up (not sure if it's his, or somebody else's) that supposedly generates seeds, but this would require Nintendo's private RSA signing key. He also hasn't actually shown any proof that he can generate seeds, and those that he handed out privately on Twitter were all the same. When somebody called him out on this, he responded saying that he was "testing something". I honestly don't care anymore.

    The cost of piracy, heh. Also, now we can confirm that a second, sacrificial 3DS will be necessary for totally unbanning a system since Nintendo will obviously do this again, and they finally started checking for legitimate device IDs, so just using a random ID with NTR or an ARM9 payload won't work anymore.
