    1. if you put a sky3ds+ into a 3ds without a micro sd card in it will and image show up that there is a cartridge in there

    2. when installing backup game onto your micro sd card for your sky3ds+ do you use disk writer program?
    or is diskwriter only for sky3ds

    few other question just trying to learn about online play (iv googled and read alot and have a few questions)

    1. some say you online need 1 code header and it works with all your games. is the true ?
    2. is there any way to get code with out owning an original game and the power save device?
    3.what is the code from is it specific to everybody ds ? can someone not make a cfg file that you can simply add to you sd card ?
    4. if you try and play only without doing this will is just not work or will you get banned ?

    1. If you go online without a private header, you may be banned.
    2. You could *buy* one, but it may be risky
    3. No, the code is a cartridge header.
    4. You'll be banned.

    back to question 1
    1. i have been reading and from my understanding you just need 1 privtae header and it can be used for all your games online ?
    2. other than buying one there is no way to get a private header without purchasing a origanl game and power save ?

    With CFW, you can dump the header from a cartridge. You'll still need a cart to get a header from, though.

    thank you (question 2 is answered)

    now just question

    1. i only need 1 private header for 1 game then it can be used for all my online game


    5.also i read this online is this true
    there is no risk of being banned if you try and fail to go online with a header that doesn't work or any sort of thing like that. You'll most likely get the error code 002-0123 which has nothing to do with a banned system. It's just an error code telling you the header (which is essentially an online access code) is bad. So yeah...you're good :)

    if this is true why did the first "gnmmarechal" say you will get banned

    If you use a header that is in use by someone else at that time, you'll be banned. And I assume a few public headers have been blacklisted already. Either use a private header, or don't go online.

    I would advise to follow 3ds.guide if you want to play backups. It is a free alternative to buying a sky3ds, you can't get banned, and protects you from being bricked. You can do everything with what the guide sets you up with that a sly3ds can do, and more.

    Game updates are perfectly safe, they don't touch the game at all, they're just installed separately.
    As SimplyFedorable said, I recommend CFW instead of a Sky. It saves you money, there's no need for private headers, and you can do stuff with it that you can't with a Sky.

    i will be doing cfw also thank you

    so last question do you only get banned if you try and go play an online games mode ? meaning you can have your wifi connected all the time even when you have your sky3ds+ in your ds?
