    Hi,

    I have bought the sky3ds blue and i am on firmware 9.9-26 on my 3ds.
    my question is: how do i make a private header without powersave or something?

    sky3ds has a tutorial on how to make private headers but it makes no sense to me.

    thanks in advance

    You don't "make" a header, a header is the unique information that every retail game cardtridge game has to play online, it has all the game's information like how big it is, the manufacturer, chip type, etc...

    You can either extract it from a savegame with the power saves method, a free method is to dump the game itself and extract it using gateway's rom patcher but you'll need a 9.2 or less firmware system for it, which I guess you don't have...

    That's the options, you can't just magically pull the file out of the cardtridge.

    It is also possible to randomly generate a header and if you're lucky you'll eventually get a working one, but yeah a powersaves is much safer.

    Or if you have any friend with an exploitable firmware you can dump your rom and get the header that way. Its a free solution.

    What are the odds? - Honestly unless you plan to hack your system nobody would do that.

    My 3ds had not been updated past the 6s then I got an xl and had to upgrade to system transfer. My buddy never system transferred and didn't play anything new so I had a nonexploitable firm but his was exploitable. Just ask your friends if they update their shit.
