    As long as you aren't bypassing encryption. You are forgetting that part. In the process of CFW, you bypass encryption, hence the illegal part.

    Unless you're doing it for personal use. It's illegal to sell.

    I just don't get this. Its truly ridiculous, why are they so against modding? Sony doesn't have a pissy fit for a hacked console. Microsoft might throw some crap. I just find this retarded. First claims, now targeting all people who enjoy homebrew.

    Nintendo you are running the fans away.

    Is there a way to avoid this? My 3DS have been turned off for kind a long time, so i find it hard to be banned

    Sony not throwing a pissy fit? Are you kidding me.They sued hackers and put a restraining order on them to not touch there console again.We are lucky Nintendo is only playing cat and mouse.

    You're aware people have been getting banned from Sony/MS consoles for years due to modding them, right? The difference is the scene for those consoles tends to put more effort into concealing the fact they're running a modded console.

    The less you connect your nnid online,the better chance you have to stay ban free.

    What you're saying is ridiculous. Console manufacturers have absolutely no reason why they shouldn't ban modded consoles (including Nintendo).
    For Nintendo your console is worthless because
    1. 95% of cfw users do not buy any games
    2. You waste the Nintendo servers for games that you didn't even buy
    3. You may cheat and ruin others online experience

    Try to go online on any game/check your friends list (if you get an error, it means youre banned)

  16. There's a reason. CFW.

    It sucks they're doing but it's normal for companies to ban those who use CFWs.

    It's a ban only from online play. So, huh, try going online and see what happens.

    FreeShop/CIAngel do not send any identifying information to Nintendo's servers while downloading (Atleast outside of sleep mode downloads. I have no idea what that sends, and CIAngel doesn't have it implemented). So they can not ban you from using those programs, outside of a basic IP ban which is easily bypassed.

    You are running unauthorized software and it's their job to protect their IP by implementing bans, as a form of punishment. It's retarded to call it ridiculous, because it is not, as we (end users who exploit consoles) should know the risks involved, as it is just a matter of time things like this may occur.

    I say it time and time again, if "online" is a major feature you need, then use a legit console purely for that and have a 2nd for exploits and CFW. That way it saves all the butthurt when ban waves happen.
