    The only things to do is turn off any kind of setting that would send base information to Nintendo. Like showing your friends what application you are playing, and turning off Street pass sharing.

    Just disable "Show friends what you're playing" and "Sharing of System Information via SpotPass". You should be good from there.

    Even if you do get banned, it's ridiculously easy to unban.

    It's recommended to turn off SpotPass but not showing your friends what you're playing isn't necessary.

    It might be easy but you still need a second 3ds console unless you find a donor local friend code seed...which tend to get banned pretty fast as you're not the only one using them

    These are the equivalent of a KV on an Xbox 360.

    Plus if you replace the friend code seed you will be unable to factory reset your system in the future to remove CFW as the 3ds will be unable to boot into OFW ever again unless you replace the friend code with the original.

    So by that point you might as well justod and use the second 3ds as your new primary if you want to go online
