    I changed the header of animal crossing new leaf rom to play online.
    I started the game and it says the save is damaged and it will be deleted :(
    Is there a way to restore the old save? I have a backup on the pc.

    Pls tell me yes :D

    Right around the cornerâ„¢
    It should work again if you use the original, un-modified ROM if I'm not mistaken.

    Try to revert back your header.

    Yes, but you can't use the online header I think.

    If you were playing without a header before, I don't think there is a way to play online with that save.

    I started playing without any header modification.
    Then i tried to play online but i had to modify the header and now i see the save file is damaged.
    So to play online i should create a fresh save file?

    Correct. The header acts kinda like a password for the save file. Different password and it shows corrupt.

    At this moment, no but I'm sure someone somewhere is working on a way to fix it.

    I changed the header of the rom with the bin of the one i found in the gbatemp guide but i still get that error 002-0123.
    The only thing i didn't is to rename the rom with .3dz because gateway give me problems opening it and i used as always .3ds extension.
    What is wrong? I did mistake with the header?

    You have to change the extension, or it won't work.
