    Any header will work for every game, just get the cheapest (new) game you can find.

    I personally use a header from cubic ninja myself and the games i use it for work fine. I use gateway rom patcher v0.6 to inject the header into the games then rename them to .3dz files.

    If I take a header from a game that don't have online (like Oot3DS), the header will work on an online game, like SSB3DS?

    You can take a header from literally any 3DS game, be it online or offline, and replace it with all of your games. As long as ONLY YOU have that header, you're good to go.

    From what i've read it seems like only 3DS using a public header to play online are being banned. So if i used ANY of my own headers from a bought game to play an online game it would work and i most likely wouldn't get the temporary ban?

    Does the region of the game matter? I was thinking about buying monster hunter cross next month when it comes out in Japan due to the online play and not wanting to get banned but if i can just download the .3ds file and change the header with a private one from a random N/A game, i might just do that instead.

    If you rip a header from your own game, you're totally safe. Region doesn't matter. Yes you can take that .3ds file from a Japanese game and inject the header of your own North American game and be fine. :D
