    yeah you need to dump a private header from another 3DS cartridge then add it to your games.

    Optionally since you are on the 9.2 or lower firmware you can set up CFW/ Emunand and install games as CIAs. these play online just fine without fixes

    You can use BigBlueMenu.3ds to install any games you want to play online onto your home menu. If you play them this way you won't be banned (cia games have no header).

    You could also install CFW and have all your games installed this way, and not need your Gateway cart. If you are on an old 3DS, follow this tutorial: https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-installing-rxtools-custom-firmware-3ds-and-2ds.390867/. If you're in a new 3DS you'll need a different tutorial.

    Wait, all the private headers I've inject into my ROMS on my CFW, was wasted time...? I didn't need to do it...?

    If you've been injecting headers into .3ds ROMs that you've then converted to CIA, you've been wasting time, yes. But if you've been using said .3ds ROMs on Gateway or Sky3DS directly, then no, you haven't.

    When you use CIAs the header is generated using the consoles hardware id + the games info, so far no reports of Bans using CIAs unless you cheating online etc

    So yeah lol

    You're confusing yourself, CIA's don't need headers but ROMS do. ROMS and CIA's are 2 different formats.
