    congrtes guys now maybe a dsi homebrew cahnnel instead of using stupid flachcarts to run it even when the dsi updates then no more worky so now we need a good groupe of team members ( team twiizers ) on the case to update it ever so often

    wow.. The day I got Homebrew on my Wii (earlier in August, around the 10’s), I was thinking: Homebrew DSi… And now this video :)

    Cannot wait to see what you have for us. But then comes those skams where they’ll try to sell your projects.. :(

    Just being realistic.. Kinda…

    You could just use the Acekard 2i. It’s DSi compatible.

    theres DSi exclusive cards now with enhanced features for DSi & more space, you should try to hack those

    Nintendo will be attempting to block homebrew carts with updates. This was shown in v1.4 update, therefore a firmware mod is the wisest decision to attempt. Also the ability to find out how this thing ticks will also pave a path for developers and a possible homebrew channel on the DSi to replace the costly nintendo DSiWare shop. XD Not saying anything against the cards I love ’em but this way is more practical for HomeBrew applications.

    Try not to overlook any features that can help hack the DSi. There is still a DS Software Download feature that downloads stuff from the Wii. If a DSi installer can be uploaded into the Wii Homebrew Browser and is capable to use the Wii’s Bluetooth, then the installer can be downloaded from the Wii to the DSi, where it can be executed.

    iViking: that is a good idea, but if Nintendo did the job right, the downloads will be encrypted/signed (sorry, I forget the term… It’s been a while since I’ve looked at any of this) and would not run if it isn’t encrypted/signed by Nintendo.

    Good idea, but it might not work. There’s always the chance though, so it could be worth a try.

    Team Twiizers: I love your work! I’ll be honest, I’m a lurker and don’t really contribute anything, but reading everything you guys post (especially the technical bits that explain what you did and how you did it) catches my interest big-time. I’m always learning something new when I read them.

    I am a tad sad that there is no other news? Anything new, any updates at all?

    Can you inform me as to what you have discovered about the data storage on the dsi so I can pick up this abandoned project?

  • 12 bushing // Nov 6, 2010 at 11:22 pm

    The project’s not abandoned, but progress is slow and hasn’t yet yielded publishable results. Maybe we can help you anyway — do you have a specific question?
