R4/ R4i card supports go online without ban from Nintendo?

Do not worry about that. R4/R4i card supports you go online on 3DS, and if the DS game you play has online feature, you can use the flash card to play online well as like you are inserting the commercial game card to 3DS. Nintendo will not ban for 3DS for this. The past ban wave to Pokémon Sun&Moon game users, because they were playing the games before the games offically released. That was not wise thing to do at all.
