    I did not mean "banned by playing a game too much", I agree that it would be silly. What I mean is, the time we spend playing with our 3DS before the ban is issued, despite the game titles being legit or not, nor the time we spent on a game. (I'm sorry if I am not making much sense.)

    As in our situation, my sister did not played with her 3DS shall we say this month and she just used her 3DS for the sole purpose of upgrading to B9S. While in my situation, I am playing with it and I did update it to B9S. Maybe, just maybe, it contributes as a "determinant" for us to be banned?

    I don't think so.

    there's people unbanning themselves since day one of the banwave and they where not banned again.

    Hey guys, I've summed up most of the possibilities mentioned in the board and put them into a Google Forms. Please answer this and I will give access to the answers to the main contributors to the thread. Thank you. :)

    Guys, just saying, I hope you know that very well kids are viewing this board. I know I, as well as them and their parents, would appreciate us not swearing. I know tensions are high with the bans, and I get that, but could we please monitor our language?

    Which is curious, does that mean Nintendo aren't looking into more people? and the bans that went out over days where just a list of people to hit.

    Or is it something silly like they banned LocalFriendCodeSeed_B and MAC Address/Console Serial or something and once that has happened they aren't checking those MAC Addresses again? so you are some what safe with a new LocalFriendCodeSeed_B?

    Really should check if any of my devices got hit... but until I actually want to play online which really isn't often I'll hold out till we know what triggered it all.

    Well, I played dozens of hours on my 3DS after I jailbroke it with EmuNAND and I didn't get banned.

    I also still don't frankly see why that'd be a factor.

    Assuming you're below 11.4, you can easily get CFW with a 4 GB SD card and a pc. Otherwise, you need to trust your soldering skills or buy another 3DS (preferably a 2DS)

    It's not the hardest ban they could throw out, the irony of the fact they restrict you to buy from the eShop is kinda funny, but there are people who wouldn't care. They would come only for the free games...

    There's no guarantee there's no correlation between bans. Read my type up of statics from Aurora's poll. Almost everyone who was banned had homebrew installed to the home menu.

    Hi, stupid person here;

    Does anyone know how you can limit a question on Google Forms to only show when you get a certain response on the previous question? Example;

    Did you use NTR?
    Yes
    No

    Okay, so you used NTR. How long ago?
    1-3 days
    ETC

    Ok late comer, I just noticed today I had the ban message on my friends list which I found, oddly, going into it to turn off showing what I'm playing, go figure. Went home, checked my son's 2DS, not banned, so here goes:

    New 3DSXL, BS9, 11.4, spotpass all on, friends list all on, freeshop, fbi, themely, custom theme etc. CIA's installed, minor online gaming, as in 10 matches in smash Bros, nothing else online. Last time it was played online was probably 5 or so days ago, sometime before Saturday for sure, maybe Thursday? No mods. System gets used daily, just not online. Never played Pokemon or FE.

    2DS a9lh, 11.4, spotpass all on friends all on, never used to play online, last time was months ago when my son didn't know he could play SSIV and be challenged online, wireless always on. Freeshop, fbi, etc installed, MK7 legit others CIAs. Was played yesterday, been a few days before that, last week some time. Around the same time I last played smash online on my 3DS. Played Pokemon for a few minutes like a year ago, he never got into it. FE was played for a little while as well, again months ago. He mostly just plays yokai watch and occasionally smash Brothers against cpu.

    My mom also has a N3DSXL on BS9 that's most likely never been played online, and has no friends list at all, I'll check it when I can.

    My particular unit came from Walmart as a birthday present earlier this month so I may just see if I can exchange it, unfortunately I have a skin and screen protectors on it so I may not. No online isn't a deal breaker for me in the end, local is good enough. If it becomes a permanent ban and I need to play online I may use the 2DS.

    A lot of banned people haven't ever used NTR.

    I can take a look shortly if you PM them. I did a quick type up of Aurora's poll results as of yesterday. So I can take a look at your results

    Guys don't message the creator of this thread there isn't anything they can do if you are banned and if you are messaging them to tell them you are banned you are messaging the wrong person

    I'm banned in my new 3ds 11.4 with luma 7.05 and A9LH.

    Never installed freeshop or a non legit game. Just use for homebrew games and backup my saves. I don't play online for weeks. Recently I used homepass relay. Spotpass on and show to my friend what I'm playing on.

    Should I inject a public LFCS as a preventive measure if mine hasn't been banned yet?

    It's up to you. If it were me, I'd leave my LFCS unmodified just to not raise any flags for Ninty when you go back onto the internet.
