    CIA doesn't need anything special just the game update and the latest Emunand , Gateway you just need to patch the header with gateway rom patcher v1.2. Make sure the header is from a game you wont use anymore.

    I meant about playing online and not getting banned? Used to be you needed a legit header not to get banned.

    You won't get banned and it's called a private header (comes from a game you own and wont take online or share).

    Here is the latest Gateway rom patcher if you need it http://scene.releases.free.fr/tools/download.php?dl=GRP_v1.2

    Gateway yes, CIA no. You can rip the header from a 3DS rom dump you made in the gateway menu. Using gateway rom patcher just select export header and save it somewhere. You can use that header file to patch all your roms.

    Correct CIA's use your console ID as the header so its safe. If your worried about getting banned dont cheat online, play online using out of region roms, or pirate DLC online (offline games are fine since Nintendo cant possibly check for a purchase).

    You can install CIA files on gateway. When in gateway mode it is a CFW

    CIA files do not need private headers
