    This is being discussed in the http://gbatemp.net/threads/002-0102-ban-bypass-method-more-info.449181/ thread, however I believe this deserves more visibility for the forum members.

    Just minutes ago Nintendo started a new 3DS banwave, however, this time there doesn't seem to be any apparent reason for being banned. Seems like Nintendo is just banning CFW users randomly.

    Users report getting banned on both AL9H and B9S. Of course, there could be an underlying reason for this, but for now, be cautious about what you do to prevent getting banned and wait for further info.

    No rhyme or reason to the bans at all?

    they arent saying or perhaps providing reason for it. I still think that theres some underlaying cause which is more for why its happening

    Maybe since nintendo started paying off the snitch-hackers they have a new way of detecting cfw users?

    One way to combat the issue would be to stay off line.

    It is what it is, we know the risk when we modify our consoles in any way.

    Nintendo paid hackers to hack their systems so they could find flaws.

    Yeah i know about that but they ain't "snitch hackers". People who say that are so damn entitled just because those guys choose to use their skills for the system security and actually get paid for their work instead of releasing their work to the public.

    This is now the third thread that is discussing this. Too much to read now. My ban came Monday night, so they were gearing up for tonight, as Monday's their weekly maintenance thing. 002-0102, it should be specified what the error code is. Called them yesterday and they said it's temporary, it's "unauthorized software." Repeating myself again, hack pokemon, but clearly not everyone getting banned does, the common denominator is CFW.

    Hmm temporary you say? Are they actually trying a block rather than a ban then? Hmm....

    It's what they said, somehow I think they'll change their minds, but at the time of calling them Tuesday morning, they said it was a temporary ban.

    actually north korea. please send help
    I guess I wont set up B9S when I get my new 3DS in the (probably distant) future. I'll use my already-banned 3DS for screwing around with this kind of stuff.
    Hopefully this won't be a problem by the time I get my new 3DS, though.

    This affects A9LH users too by the way. Hold-outs are reporting bans as well.

    Can't be related strictly to B9S.. As A9LH users are reporting a ban as well.

    Oh, what I meant was that I'm not gonna set up any form of CFW-related hax on my new 3DS. I should've made that more clear lol
