    I've looked around for what I'm about to ask and I haven't got a definite answer.

    Let me make clear the fact that I am not banned.

    I'm on firmware 9.7

    Questions:

    1. Will I be banned if I play a pirated game while connected to the internet or will I be banned if I play multiplayer?

    2. Is it possible to edit your header on Sky3DS? If so, how?

    3. If I get banned, can I still play multiplayer with someone in the same room? I think you know what I mean.

    Note to Gateway Nazis:

    No, I will not buy another console with a lower firmware and I will not buy a Gateway.

    The only thing nintendo seems to ban is people getting online with public headers (which some people claim to do without any problems at all, but is risky).

    Another thing the had let to bans is people playing Ratted battles with illegal pokemon they got via pokehex or powersaves (by illegal i mean with illegal moves or not yet relesead poke/itens/abilitys)

    3. Local co-op, fairly sure. Wouldn't be connecting to the nintendo network in any way, so you should be fine.

    Buy a console with a lower firmware and buy a Gateway card with it.

    Jokes aside, you want a private header if you want to safely play online with a Sky3DS, and the only way to get a private header is by ripping off a game with... thats right, a GW card.

    U Can actually do it with only the gateway launcher IF u are on 9.2 or below
    But like seems the guy is already on 9.7 is pretty much impossible to take a private header on ur own.

    The best u can hope is to send a original cartridge to someone u know and trust so he can do the job for u.

    Yeah, my bad. But all in all if he wants to play online he will need a retail game and someone to rip it for him. Thats what Ive done for a couple of friends of mine and it seems to be working fine most of the time. Plus the ban hammer doesnt appear to be permanent (yet).

    It's not worth the hassle. I won't be playing Pokemon (I hate it) or multiplayer but I just want to be sure it's only multiplayer that gets you banned. You supposedly get banned from other online servers as well as multiplayer.

    One more question. Does your NNID or console get banned?

    Good question there, just guessing, but i think its the console.

    But as the other dude said up there, Nintendo Bans are for like 15-30 days. Not that much.

    Playing online won't result in a ban provided you have a private header.

    Online means, multiplayer. I don't see how playing online would mean anything else. If you're talking about a game that goes online and just polls certain data, I believe Bravely default does this (monsters to your town, battle assisting friends), it doesn't affect you in anyway. Sure as hell didn't affect me.

    I have a 9.6 New 3DSXL console as well, and I got my header with a powersave. No need to dump the rom. It's only 18$ extra.

    Use the guide, add your header to an empty bin file and apply it with No Ban No Sky..

    The game won't even let you use illegal pokemon online or trade them. So there's no worries about being banned for hacked pokemon. If the pokemon trades online, it's legit and safe to use.

    People have managed to use them online. Theres a video where a dude even use like 7 Mega-evolution pokemon.

    Nintendo have posted a news about banning these people and reaward the ones who were beaten by this guys. U can check it at serebii.net

    How did they even get passed the security? The basic security this game has against illegal pokemon is enough to let you know that your pokemon isn't good. That security keeps you safe from using hacked pokemon online which is useful. These hackers must've went through some extreme measures to get those pokemon online.
    But your point still stands, if you manage to use hacked pokemon online, bans will occur. Only if you're willing to go through something extra to get passed the security.

    There are those who like to risk it, but whine later on.

    Using a private header is pretty easy with Sky - just replace the header line in the template with your private header.

    You also need to make sure the manufacture ID and chip ID are correct, or it won't work.
