Yet another ban survey -- have you ever opened the eShop?

    We know that opening the official eShop checks your list of installed content, and so far I haven't seen anyone asking this question on here or 3dshacks, though I may have missed it. I've been very blatant with my 3dshacking and thus far am not banned -- my 'favorite title' is FBI and I play fe:fates online even though I'm using an NTR hack for gay relationships. I don't have an NNID and have never opened the eShop, so I figured collecting data on this from everyone else could be useful.

    I may not be banned yet, but I'm sure they have my name on a platter where my head should be. They just didn't take my head yet

    I don't think that entering the eShop or not is relevant tbh
    I think it's more likely that they just check for unknown titles on the console itself.

    The poll results seem rather inconsistent..

    I'm using B9S+Luma > Emunand + injected homebrew to H&S+Nintendo Zone+Download Play (+3dsx) + some CIAs + eShop purchased titles. Never ever turned spot, streetpass or any notification off. Have not banned yet since 2015, all my activities from 2015 to 2017 still there, included ancient homebrew :D

    Only online using legit cartridges, that might be why I'm still riding on the wave.

    Hmm interesting...
    I bought my N3DS last September new, never linked a NNID to it, installed A9LH immediately and installed B9S on Day 1.
    I never entered the eShop, I have disabled sending Data to Nintendo ever since. I always have WiFi and Spotpass OFF to safe battery life. Just turn it ON, if I have something to do online and turn it OFF again. I am not banned.

    I use the eShop frequently because I am one of the few people on this website that actually buy games to support the creators. Also, I like demos. :lol:
    Old Nintendo 2DS 11.4.0-37U with Spotpass info sharing with data sending to Nintendo and title sharing on Friends List enabled.
    Luma 3DS on boot9strap
    Never used freeShop.
    Frequently play online.
    Not banned.

    Besides, people use the eShop for piracy. From what I understand, they run a program called tikShop and then just pirate apps freely DIRECTLY FROM THE eShop. That wouldn't be it. Perhaps Nintendo just likes using the /ban command.

    B9S + latest LUMA + lots HB CIAs, cross region online play, show playing titles in friend list, share information to Ninty ON, etc. All settings were turned off when I saw the ban in the forum. But yes, I never opened eShop and still alive.

    freeshop, ciangel, fbi, hbc, star updater, a9lh, spotpass off, have played countless non legit cias online and off, friend list title sharing off, have entered eshop many, many times. Not banned.

    Gee. I wonder where I've seen that said before. I wonder if it could have anything to do with people giving inconsistent answers on said polls. How else do they end up with inconsistent results? Not going to start anything with you, all has been said and done already, but I told you so. ;)

    there's not enough responses yet to confirm anything or even to average over the outlier responses, but there at least seems to be a trend shown that its pretty rare to be getting banned if you've never opened the eShop with unofficial content.

    I should have added subquestions about if you've got spotpass data sharing turned on so we could see the correlation between the two, but I guess it's too late now.

    Pretty sure eShop use is irrelevant. I use it constantly and haven't been banned.

    I have opened the eShop, but only before installing anything pirated. I heard you need to open it at least once for something to work right.
