    I'm sorry for that I wrote the question on the forums, because I couldn't find "ask a question"

    button because maybe I'm not 100 posts.

    I know SKY3DS or SKY3DS+ need private header to play online game not to be banned.

    Does GATEWAY 3DS need a private header to play online game not to be banned?

    Gateway needs a private header but if your on 9.2- 10.7 you might as well use the safer and better A9LH that doesn't need private headers and doesn't brick their users on purpose

    No gateway doesn't need it since it runs on cfw.Sky3ds uses a rom on ofw through a flashcard so that's why it gets detected online.Its better if you use a a9lh setup though.

    The .3ds files need private headers with gateway. .cia don't And if your only using cias with gateway just get a9lh plus luma and sell gateway

    Sky3ds will always need private headers. Sky3ds can't run .cias you need a cfw like luma3ds for that. If you want to set it up follow https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki

    Appreciate. So SKY3DS or SKY3DS+ always needs a private header to play online games.
    and I need to buy a game catridge to extract a private header. Am I right?

    Yes. You need to buy a cart and extract it. Or you can buy it from someone else but don't ask here.

    can u salty kids stop lying about gateway already?

    "Brick their users on purpose" is a load of bull... i have had a gateway card for near 2 years now and NEVER had a single issue NOR has anyone i know.

    Seems to be salty kids like you who are always spouting these fake lies... gateway only bricks 3ds's if a company trys to steal their code like supercarddstwo+.

    You buy a device u know us using stolen code you are just asking to get bricked.

    I actually have a dstwo+ fot the emulation it has... i have the sky3ds+ aswell... and gateway and recently got another 3ds for a9lh.

    Had more trouble getting a9lh to work then any of the paid carts...

    I've seen people selling there's on "That ISO Site", I wondered why anyone still needed them.

    I think those people are people on 11.2 with sky3ds or gateway users who don't know their are free and better ways to use cfw then with gateway

    A9LH has nothing to do with online play. That comes down to either using a .3ds/z with a private header or using a .cia and only people who use gateway 3ds clones get their systems/carts bricked.

    I think they are just scumbag resellers that already sold the games to GameStop but want money for the header too. I considered doing that back when it mattered but I played all my games online so kept them for myself.

    Get a desired game at GameStop, bring it home and dump the header, then return it because "It wasn't the right game". Profit.

    You don't know how to use gateway mate. you cant use gateway on 11.2... hec i dont think u can use it on 10+

    Also not everyone wants to take the risk of and ruining their systems (had to do a9lh for 3 of my friends so far.)
    Gateway is fairly easy to setup IF u have the right firmware... and if for w/e reason u decide to be legit u dont have to go threw hell to undo it... or brick ur system if u forget to backup ur sd card and it dies on you.

    Gateway is better in some aspects and worse in others.
    DO NOT DO THIS. 1 you would be a pathetic thief... 2 u will get yourself banned.
    If someone buys that game and plays it online when ur online u both get banned.
    Ps this would make YOU the exact same thing

    What u do is use one of ur OWN games and just use the private header and get the .3ds file for it so u never need to use ur cart again and don't get banned. or do it with a game u do not play anymore.

    Anyways the user is using gateway just use cias. no ph needed.

    Btw for the Americans n the forums best buy is having a great sale on msd cards

    I know you can't use gateway on 11.2. I was talking about users on 11.2 with sky3ds. Not gateway

    A9LH doesn't need private headers if your using cia files. (Which you install with FBI/Devmenu). .3ds files need headers. That is why i recommend you use a9lh and .cia files. It is safe to play online with .cia as they don't need private headers.
