Howdy all tis a pleasure to meet ya...they call me bigbob_75056, or bob for short. I just got me a new 3ds and a sky3ds and trying to figure how to put 2 and 2 together. Heres where im at so far...

Software: Gateway ROM Patcher
No Ban No SKY
DiskWriter
SkytempIDedit

Alright based on what ive been reading on the forum, which is a lot and very helpful thanks yall for all of it, I know I need to patch my template to play my games. In order to do that I need to use No Ban No Sky. But my problem is the private header part and everything after that really.

I use Gateway to get the game serial, main title id, and rom content and thats as much as I know. After that I dont how to write the header. I need the private header to us no ban no sky but dont know how to write it. I have been looking at the template for sky3ds and all the info I got from Gateway ROM I have no idea how to use that either. No Ban No Sky writes everything to the template I believe and Im using the new-template I got from SkytempIDedit if I should.

Sorry to be triple posting for Im sure theres a step by step guide on the site for a to z of using sky3ds and putting games on it to play but I didnt find it. Any and all help is appreciated. Oh and I dont care about playing games online if that helps, I like rpgs more than anything so Im good in that area.

First of all, you don't HAVE to patch with a header in order to play games. It is recommended that you do so, if you want to play online with the least chance of getting banned. If you use Sky3DS's template without modifications, and only play offline, you'll be fine.

That being said, there is no current way to use the Gateway exploit to rip a private header on a New 3DS XL. You would need to be in possession of a original model 3DS with a firmware no higher than 9.2.

    See $200 at neweeg but oof 8gbram
  • Veho @ Veho:
    My current computer has 8GB of RAM and it's working fine. I think I could live with that.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    If no hefty gaming stuff should be fine
  • BakerMan @ BakerMan:
    just get some used shit off ebay or smth for ram

    that's what my dad's friend does

    Don't buy used ram it's too cheap now lol
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    But it's probably on board ram with that device
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Yeah, it's a SoC.
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    I've done more shell scripting in my current job in the year and a half I've been here than I did in my entire 8+ years at my last job. Wild.
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    Scripting isn't even in my job description, but it enables me to, say, take multiple hours of multiple touches to servers to run commands over the course of a month, to a few minutes and it's ready 2 days later.
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Shell scripting is very useful.
  • Veho @ Veho:
    For batch operations.
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    Massivley so. Glad I'm getting more experienced with it now
  • Veho @ Veho:
    "Hey can you make this [inane change] on 50 servers?" Yes.
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    The scenario in question is to do disk erases on some storage servers at my job that have I think 12x 14TB spinners, SATA SSDs, and nvme disks. The process I'm using to erase the spinners is to kick off an ATA Security Erase in the disk's firmware, then once that's done do a dd zero-fill as a second pass.
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    These spinners take like 22h per each of those operations
  • Veho @ Veho:
    I'll admit sometimes it takes me longer to write and debug a script that will do that for me, than it would take me to make the changes manually, but this is more fun.

  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    And running it over a serial console I'd either have to spin up a dozen and a half screen sessions or just run one operation at a time
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    Wrote a horrifyingly long one-liner to do all of that - spin up a shitload of screen sessions, run these commands to it, pipe output to kmsg so it shows up in the default tty's shell, and some other shit on top of that.
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Can't you run pssh?
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    Some day I'll write out a properly formatted shell script that lives on our firmware server or git repo and just call that, and have that handle every kind of server we run much more gracefully than my hobbled together atrocity does right now
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    pssh - nope. 1, what I'm doing gets done from our bootable provisioning environment, and you can only interface with that via serial console - we don't accept ssh connections on the servers in that state, and 2, I don't even know if our bootable environment has pssh baked into it
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    3, I've never even heard of it before lol
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    Anyway I can open serial console sessions to multiple devices at the same time, and broadcast my input to all of them (iTerm on Mac is the terminal emulator I'm using). It's just a matter of how many commands I'd have to run by hand, and how long they'd take otherwise lol
