    Ok so from what I've heard and researched basically you need a Private Header to put into a ROM/Template so you can play without risk, right? However I still have some questions:

    1.- I hear you need either a PAID powersaves program to do the job OR be able to run Gateway (which I cannot). Is there no other way to get the Private Header? Cuz I cannot really do much of either -_-

    2.- I read about this method here: https://sky3dsnewsinformation.wordpr...-to-be-banned/ which basically comes from this post here (or so it seems)https://gbatemp.net/threads/why-sky3...header.385672/ What I did not get well was. Basically you can get the typical Sky3DS template, put it under Sky Army Knife, "modify" the manufacturer on the template and you're solid. Is that how it works like, or there are still risks or whatever?

    3.- I want to play FF Explorers and to a lesser extent use the Bravely Second function (which I guess will have a Norende-esque function). Basically if I use that Norende function (talking in a Bravely Default perspective), would that be enough to warrant a ban if I do not protect myself or is that kind of a lesser use of internet that shouldn't pose any problem?

    4.- Are there other ways to play online safely?

    Sorry but basically what was around gave me a handful of questions and assumed it would be better to ask them all at once. Thanks in advance.

    1) Powersaves are pretty cheap. What is 17 bucks over a banned 3ds?
    2)You don't need Sky army knife anymore. You just get the header. Open the settings file and put in the key under the "DEFAULT_GAMESAVE_KEY=".
    3) Yes, it can still get you banned.
    4) You can use the sky3ds with a cubic ninja rom to launch ninjhax. You can either follow the rxTools guide or ah9l guide on this section to install a custom firmware. If you do the rxTools guide and you don't really need all of the functions rxTools uses you can just replace it with aureinand afterwards. You can also just install aureinand right away.

    1. You can downgrade to 9.2 with Ninjhax and PlaiSysUpdater, dump a game with the Gateway launcher and get the header from it.
    2. If you have the Sky3DS+ you can do what the person above me said. If not you need Sky Army Knife or No Ban No Sky.
    3. Any game that uses online functionality can get you banned with a public header.

    1) Yeah I got it, though I prefered this to be free. Meng............sunk cost at this point.
    2) Mine isn't Sky3DS+ mine is regular blue button.
    3) I see.
    4) Not sure I got this well but ok.

    Btw I already got the Private Header from a game. So now I just need to use Sky Army or No Sky Ban to put that Header into the template so I can play right?

    You still have to spoof the save in the end. Since you'll either get a corrupted save error or it's using the old header, since the savefile was made with that key. So you could still get banned if you don't.
