    Hey everyone, long time reader first time poster, I am trying to gain a pretty thorough understanding of private and public headers. I have read just about every other post about them but i had one question which wasn't answered.
    I have a sky3ds+(v112) and a powersaves and i know how to get the private header off but i am trying to find out if downloaded roms come with a public header or no header at all. there is nothing listed where the header should be in the .cfg file and i was under the impression that all games came with public headers until it was replaced by a private one. I ask because i was just curious if i could go online with mario tennis open, assuming the public header would work for a short time but it wouldnt let me connect online at all (with error code) same with other games. Just trying to figure out where to find the public header that the games come with?
    Thanks a lot everyone i love this community on here everyone is so helpful.

    Pretty sure they come with public headers, so you'll have to insert your own private header. I'm also sure there's a guide on that somewhere, should be easy to find.

    Not sure what a scene release is but I think I get what you're saying. So downloaded roms don't have headers unless you add your own private header? Thanks a lot for the info!

    Yes.
    Scenes release are public dumps by scenes groups, as PUSSYCAT, LiGHTFORCE or VENOM

    Some you find on that ISO site will have headers. Best not use those headers since they can get you banned.
    Sky will not use the header in the game ROM though.

    Awesome I believe all of mine are scene roms which would explain why none of them can connect to the internet and don't have headers thanks alot guys. I'm gonna import my private header tommorow in the default_game save_key and see how it goes!
