    Hey there, I've been thinking about getting a sky 3ds for my new 3ds, it is on the newest firmware so the sky is my only option.

    How do I get the header from one of my games to use on my sky 3ds, and will I need to do this with every single one of my games, or will one of my game headers work for all games or must they match cartridge to rom for each one?


    Also does anyone know any good resellers in Canada?
    Thanks for the info in advance guys! :D

    You can patch all your games with only one of your private headers. As for resellers in Canada I'm not sure, I think PeachDS ships to Canada.

    Ah that's good to know, it would be annoying grabbing headers for every single game. Good to know.

    Do you know of any tutorials on the process? I looked around a bit but the couple I found were confusing. do I need custom firmware or a gateway to get my private headers? or will just the sky3ds be sufficient?

    oh I think I figured it out, I can use the gateway launcher.dat on my old 3ds to dump my roms for headers, what should I use to get my header into the sky3ds template? no ban no sky? or maybe sky army knife??

    Also is using private headers totally safe from bans?

    Just want to get all the info I can and user input before I dive completely in.
    Thanks for any help in advance!

    So long as your old 3ds can utilize gateway, then yeah, that's perfect. Take a look at both No Ban No Sky & Sky Army Knife and see which one looks more appealing to you. They both work; I think Sky Army Knife might be a bit easier to use.

    So far i've yet to see a ban while using a private header; after looking up as much info on it as I could when I got my gateway.

    Gotcha, I'll have to order one. I'm still not totally clear on how to do it someone was saying I'd need to manually change the manufacturing code for some headers?

    I don't have first hand experience with that, so maybe someone else can chime in. Sky Army Knife seems to be pretty detailed on what you need to do though.

    actually you can't use 1 header for all the game, it's depend on the manufacture. the game with the same manufacture can use header of each other, but different manufacture can't.

    C2 = Macronix 90% of the game cart from this manufacture
    AE = OKI Semiconductor 3% of the game cart
    45 = SanDisk. 6% of the game cart.

    If you inject the header and you get the error 002-0123, you use the wrong headers.

    In this case I just change the Manufacturer ID on the template. I use my 'lego star wars' C2 header on all games. (when the game in the template use other manufacturer ID, I change to C2).

    Works perfect here.

    Thanks guys! okay so I've successfully extracted my header. and used no sky no ban to patch all games in the template. Is that it? now I just put the template file on my sky 3ds and it will use these headers for the games? or do I need to actually inject my header into the roms and how do I do that? I only see options to generate or save templates??

    Injecting into roms is only necessary for GW or MT card users
    Sky3ds Diskwriter does all the injecting when the games are written.

    this not work anymore, example smb with the newest update. You have to have private headers match manufacturer id

    What version?

    SSB has two versions on template.txt:
    Super "Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS" (SHA1: 0D0D06B31D72D2BB9A3C28A1E2D4E62B54CC5FBC)
    and
    "Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS v01" (SHA1: 743E61F50C726A4FF3F0440CCE8B0314F8653FCF)


    v01 is C2. The other is AE

    I tried here again:
    Download the first american release of SSB, the version with AE manufacturer (SHA1: 0D0D06B31D72D2BB9A3C28A1E2D4E62B54CC5FBC)

    Found it in the template and just change the AE to C2 and put my Private ID (my private ID is from Lego Star Wars III, C2 manufacturer):

    Write with the disk writer and works fine online:

    Okay cool, also I'm confused here everyone is telling me new leaf is AE, yet when I ripped mine it's C2? can they be different? I guess it doesn't matter though I'll just change the manufacturer like RahFah has shown me. Thanks mate!
