    Well, at the moment, my copy of the Nintendo Network ID applet is broken, and I'm trying to fix it so I can use the NNID Settings app properly. It gives me an error telling me "you must connect to the internet to use this app" when I do anything in it, despite the fact that my internet is clearly working and everything else on my 3DS that I haven't modified works just fine. Once I fix that, I plan to run some testing, and then get in contact with a more experienced developer like @Nanquitas to see if a CFW or NTR plugin can be created to replace the DeviceCert in RAM with the files from another unbanned 3DS. Maybe then we'll have a fix to the issue.
    I probably won't respond to PMs asking for my old proxy applet that I've mentioned previously, as the proxy has proven to be really unstable and I still haven't tried to decrypt the New 3DS version of the applet. If I can't fix my 3DS's NNID applet soon enough, I'll instead release a bunch of information I have on account.nintendo.net with PC-compatible examples so you can all do your own research.
    I can't give an exact answer, but the BOSS applet sends certain information to Nintendo's servers whenever you do certain things like running an app (for the Friend List, for example), and everything else you do involving their servers. As one of the biggest companies out there, they take a LOT of analytics from everything they can take them from. Nintendo Network ID stuff for example is known to be heavily tracked by them, I've found secret things on their server that were quickly patched and my account banned solely because they knew where to look for me and I used their functions once. I was also able to see some of my dev NNID usage on the Account Developer Portal, and they have way more information internally than their public dev tools show. They've been collecting information on this stuff for a while, and only now are they starting to use it. Nintendo knows all.

    Yeah, there are ways to unban by changing your seed. Look it up online or go back a few (dozen) pages and you should be able to find it @kralde

    I'm really sad here. Cant accept this permanet ban. The only thbig I use CFW is to backup my saves and play homebrew games. All other games are legit.

    Very sad here. I'll wait a bit more before start to uban my 3DS, and hope I don't lose my legit games and posts on miiverse

    But it will work for good? My idea is to get unbanned and then delete any trace of a9lh by restoring my nand before touch anything.
    Will it work? :(

    Won't change anything. If you use a seed from another person and that person gets banned, you will be banned too again.

    Unbanning itself does work though

    The solution is to wait for the bans to stop rolling out, acquire a localfriendcodeseed_b file from an unbanned 3ds, and inject that shit into your banned 3ds.

    There is a forum thread that offers a public LFCS file but that was due to the generous donation of one user who had four of them. The last one has yet to be released but thirsty fools already asking for it. Best bet is to get your own LFCS.

    Might sound evil, but teeeeeechnically you could buy a 2DS ($80), hack it real quick, take it's LFCS, wipe that shit via nand reinstallation, and then return it...but that's frowned upon.

    The banwave is completely serverside, if you are flagged you will get banned sooner or later and turning everything off now is suspicious, dont you think?

    Let's chill and get back on topic. Yeah, we've been banned. Yeah, it sucks, and it's probably permanent. But yeah, we probably earned our bans.

    We are going to be able to unban ourselves, have no fear. The trick is to figure out what gave us away and how to prevent getting banned again.

    Nobody knows.
    Nintendo might already know your 3DS was hacked and might just issue the ban for your console later, even while you're offline.
    But there's also a chance that Nintendo did not yet collect information about your 3DS and going online with a hacked 3DS from now on will most likely get you banned eventually.

    Hmm. I just sold my formerly CFW'd 3ds to Gamestop. Hoping it doesn't wind up banned in a delayed reaction to my former use of it.
