    Okay, so now we have official confirmation from you, that the banwave has not only been targeting public seeds, but also been targeting people with Custom Software (aka unauthorised software).

    I had a feeling that this banwave wasn't just targeting public LocalFriendCodeSeed_B files, but also people who have hacked their system and used custom software, or maybe systems without any modification at all. This is just another regular banwave, the same one that was used back in late-May, probably as a deterrent. So I can only assume that this banwave will also be permanent as well.

    It's never 100% safe, it's up to you whether you want to take the risk, it's been a risk since day one, it's only the last few months people en masse have witnessed the extent of Nintendo's punishing hand. My concern grows less each day personally and once my third console gets unbanned after the 28 day period (special case), I'll just carry as if nothing happened. I've distracted myself with other things anyways.

    If you're willing to do so, do it on a spare 3DS, not your valuable one. But if you don't have any other 3DS consoles, and you really want to install CFW, make sure you keep Wireless/Wi-Fi switched off. This second banwave is still ongoing, and if you install CFW while still connected to the internet, apps like Homebrew Launcher will be visible to Nintendo's server.

    Check the Friends List App, if the 002-0102 message comes up, you're banned.

    Switching off Wi-Fi is important and leave it switched off. Let your brother know about the banwave and how Nintendo is banning users with CFW and unauthorised software. He might end up changing his mind about it if he can't live without playing online multiplayer in games.

    he get the concept of it and understand the risk of being banned, i've been using my 3ds without wifi and spotpass and it seems fine for me until now.. i'm just wondering because in my mind, using my 3ds and installing is a different thing and just wanted to know if installing cfw etc can increase the risk of getting banned

    thanks :)

    Information about CFW data can actually be seen normally as an app like "Download Play" running in the background. While we can't see it on the Friend List, it can be seen in the Activity Log, so it's possible that the app "Download Play" would also show up on Nintendo's server and then when a person launches a second app (apart from Miiverse, Friend List, Web Browser, Notes or Notifications), then that person would be flagged as having CFW or something and then banned.

    That public seed is probably going to be banned.

    I still don't understand why this seed ban was due. Many people pledged to deactivate SpotPass to be more likely to avoid the ban.
    That Nintendo has seen people playing from the same seed I don't think, if it had happened that would have banned since before.

    They might have been just flagging public seeds.

    That site doesn't work for me. The button does nothing.

    It may or may not be.
    At least the seed I've been using lasted almost 2 months, and the last time I used it I was playing quietly at the Pokemon Sun. Then I went to sleep,
    when I woke up, I saw that all this happened.
