    Hey, my friend stupidly removed his a9lh and decided hes gonna stick to his sky3ds. He wants to get a private header from his game, but i dont know how to help him. I have my o3ds with a9lh, and the only thing i could find is either with gateway or with powersaves.
    So, what will be the easiest way to extract the header?
    Thanks!

    I hear decrypt9 can now dump headers from games. Would that help?

    you just need a 3ds on 4.2-9.2 to use the gateway method, and I believe that is the only free way. You don't need a gateway card

    Cool. I think i have an older version of it, but seems thats the easiest way. Thanks!
    BTW, @SimplyFedorable, do you know if i can run gateway menu with a9lh? i think i heard something about using it with one of the chainloaders but im not so sure how.

    Just drop the arm9loadhax.bin file into the root of your sd card. Personally, I would advise anyone using luma3ds's chainloading feature to just switch to a simple boot manager like arm9select. It is MUCH easier to set up, is a lot less finicky, and works with any cfw. You can get arm9select HERE. To use it, put the arm9loaderhax.bin in the root of your sd card, and create a folder on the root of your sd card called "arm9select" (without the quotation marks). Rename your main cfw payload to default.bin from arm9loaderhax.bin and put it in your arm9select folder, so it boot that payload when you hold no buttons. To configure the rest of your payloads, rename them to the button you want to press on boot to triger them to load, like if I wanted decrpyt9 to boot when I press a, I rename my decrypt9 payload to a.bin. Do this for all your payloads, and enjoy.

    You dump it yourself. Fastest, easiest, less risky way.
