    Hi!

    I posted last month regarding a ban I have on my n3DS - I was banned for playing Mario Kart online (I forgot to inject my private header into that specific ROM)

    The ban was on Jan 26th - Its now Feb 27th and I have just tried to go online again to find I am still banned. Is this normal? How long would this ban usually last, I have seen people say around 15 days / 2 Weeks - But obviously its been longer than that now...

    Am I screwed? Shall I just continue to wait it out? Or am I permabanned? (I really hope not...)

    Anyone with an answer would be much appreciated!

    Sometimes a ban lasts longer

    Thanks for coming back so quickly - Have there been any reports of permabans for playing with public headers? Or Is it just a case of waiting it out for however long it may be...

    I think not, but maybe you got a 2/3 months ban

    Thanks for letting me know so quickly again - Another google has shown me that others have had to wait 30+ days...

    Il try it again in another week or two and we will see.... Thanks again

    If you still can't get online after 6 weeks, it's worth giving Nintendo a call as they will probably be able to tell you if it's a permanent ban.
