    I know this isn't Pokemon but ok theres not a place about DS Modding, Or atleast couldn't find it (I'm stupid)
    IS it worth modding my 2DS? I only have 1 and I dont want to risk it really.
    It's on 1.0.4.0 atm, gonna update it when US/UM comes out if i dont end up getting CFW
    Can you get banned?
    How often do you get banned?
    Is it worth my time?
    Does it cost money to get unbanned?
    Can it bypass SD Card Write-lock? last time I took mine out it didn't go well, had to send it off for repairs cause I am using an SD Card provided by Nintendo as it has my copy of Alpha Sapphire on.
    Can I extend it's storage?
    I have a Flash Cart/Chip already.

    You will only be banned if you play a game before its official release date. For example Pokemon Ultra Moon is online and has been leaked. If you play that online you will most likely be banned.

    Not often unless you do what was mentioned above

    No if you use a Public Seed or take one from another 3ds you or a friend owns. Yes if you buy one or buy another 3ds to take one from

    Write lock? That is a switch on the side of a SD card

    Yes, get a bigger sd card

    Flash cart isnt needed to mod it anymore unless you're on 11.6

    Dude, the switch on it was broken. Also, would you say it is worth it?
    I looked and I'm on update 11.4.0-37E

    Depends on what you want to use the CFW for. It being worth it is dependent on the end user. Personally I install CFW to all of my devices

    You wont be able to do anything if your card has a write lock still. I would get a new sd card with at least 16gb

    I have a copy of Alpha Sapphire that came with the console pre-installed. Will that be a problem? Will I need to do something to get my game back etc?
    Also, I don't really plan to do much. I would say modding but thee thing is I only really play Pokemon and even then I have a copy of Powersaves.
