    why not use CFW, all 3ds's can downgrade to 9.2 allowing CIAs and to not ever need to worry about headers for online use. I would install all games that use online as CIA then you can keep the rest on the sky3ds if you want.

    Use the first method and when your looking for the private header scroll up or down looking for it. I know that when I did it, it was not close to how it was in the gif image

    And remember

    "Cant Find 00 00 00 88:
    The header may not be in the same place as mine, could be above or a little below... in every instance that I've seen it has been in view of the .bin file we searched
    It ALWAYS has 88 Before it, and 48 FF bytesafter"

    Yup. And you already got a sky+ and you wouldn't want to brick anything.

    i am still looking for it I am able to find the 00 00 00 88 but it is finding the 48 ff that seems like an impossibility. does it matter what card i use for the header?

    You would want to use a card that has some online features. And it dosnt have to be 00 00 00 88. It could be something random then 88. I'm 100 sure your private header is the one before all the FFFFFFFF. Until you hit 88

    Any games even without network features can still work

    That's cool to know. I guessed that it would be better to have a private header of a game that could actually go online if you're going online. I guess I didn't need to buy steel diver lol

    Don't know if this willl help any but this is from the official sky3ds website in the FAQ section.

    Q:I just purchased the latest version of Sky3ds+. wonder if you have the instruction to edit the private
    header for the online game play?

    A: Open the file settings.txt, add in the line "CREATE_PER_GAME_SETTINGS=1" and save it, once got the
    file "xxxxx.CFG" for that online game built in your microSD card, open it and replace the value of the "GAMESAVE_KEY" with your private header info(Unique_ID), save it and enjoy your online play without
    ban risk!

    Yea you want to open the .cfg and edit the line that says gamesave key. Replace whatever value was there with your private header. Remember to delete your game save file. If you already have one so that it takes effect.


    If you can't get online you might need to change the first two letter of your ID to match the manufacturer that made your game. I forgot what all the manufacturer ID code are but I bet someone will post it or you can good it. They only have like 4

    Post one has the solution

    C2 = Macronix
    AE = OKI Semiconductor
    45 = SanDisk

    Try replacing it with C2 then the others. C2 is the most common. I think there's one more but I don't remember.

    Edit- Oh oky didn't see you found what yours was. It's different for everyone.

    It is probably at the most stable point right now. It is stable enough to downgrade (I did it). Use SafeSysUpdater and triple check everything.

    I think your answer relates to where and how to insert the private header whereas the OP is looking how to actually find a private header to insert.
