    Hey guys how's going? i have some question about using a sky3ds + For online play. I'm aware of the whole ban thing by Nintendo, so my question is using a private header is really safe? Do i have to use different headers for different games? How about sofware updates for a game? Do i have to use private header also for updates? Thanks a lot guys in advance. Bob.

    Are we allowed to sell our private headers in the WTT/WTS section of the forum, or is it against the rules?

    I usually use the same header and I haven't been banned. I switched over to CIAs though. Don't have to worry about the headers with CIAs.

    Ok cool!
    what's CIAs? is something custom firmware related? And also is there any known way to revert a ban o something like that in case (stupid question i know :) :) )?

    Yes, with custom firmware like Luma3DS, you can install CIAs! CIAs are packages usually containing games or homebrew. You can use applications like FBI to install CIAs from your SD card, or FreeShop/CIAngel to directly download games to your 3DS from the Internet.

    If you're not on CFW yet, and cannot get on it (11.0-11.1), then I recommend not updating and waiting until you can use CIAs too :).
