    I think I'll keep homepass with my virgin 3ds to see if anyone is still using homebrew.

    Nintendo is using SpotPass telemetry combined with Activity Log to push out these bans.
    Atleast thats what it looks like.

    Just for your info people. Me and my girlfriend both have N3ds xl with both spotpass that were on and that were showing game played online on friendlist, none of use were banned up to now. We are both not NNID linked and we usually keep our 3ds at home.

    Can't be. More would already be banned.

    I never did anything out of the normal to my system and I wasn't banned. I've seen a lot of people from other news sites reporting that normal users are getting banned as well.

    Only blocks online play, you can do everything else except play games online.

    You also can't use Fire Emblem DLC's cause those require you to be online for some reason

    Oh didn't know that, I haven't played a fire emblem game since awakening, and I never used the DLC from there.

    I have FBI injected as H&S and not banned.
    This is the only "hacked" stuff I have in my emuNAND.
    All sharing options in spotpass and friends are ENABLED.

    Since my emunand has no firm0 firm1 modifications (B9S modifies the firm0 SysNAND), and my ticket.db has only owned titles, I'm almost sure that having CFW is not detectable. The things you do BECAUSE of having CFW can trigger the ban.

    I'm assuming you're talking about Echoes? Since I don't know how DLC works in that game. But Awakening and Fates do not require that you be online to play its DLC. You can always use freeshop or that cia site to install the season pass and be on your merry way.

    Either way, you should be able to buy it since Eshop access hasn't been blocked, but I haven't tried it yet.

    well I just checked and I'm still not banned. even played a round of smash.

    I had spotpass and send data turned off in settings and every game that asked. I used freeshop and am updated to 11.4 and b9s.

    very weird.

    I'm fully expecting to get hit soon. just so strange how we don't know definitively what is causing these bans.

    We should know that. Aren't there people who have been banned who haven't used their 3DS recently? I haven't had my 3DS online in a while. Am I banned? I don't even know as I'm still on 11.2. So I have to update to find out.

    I Bet if it takes to long to prevent banning someone will find a workaround to play the dlcs offline ;)

    Echoes and probably awakening cause you need to connect in those games to access DLC's. Also I think Echoes and it's season pass are the reason for the mass ban
