    Hey there, I've had Sudokuhax installed on my DSi for years now, ever since it was first released. Has there been any use for it at all aside from homebrew games? Emulators even. Mainly curious about ROM loading, but I really doubt it was ever possible.

    Thanks

    Sudokuhax (like every DSiware exploit, and every DSiware by itself) has nand access by definition ;)

    Can I install DSiWare to my system like .cias on a 3DS?

    The equivalent of .cia for DSi is .tad.

    However there is no free tad manager (only Nintendo's TwlNMenu, which may or may not exist encrypted and signed for retail systems)
    And similiarly there's no free nds>tad packaging tool (only Nintendo's maketad, which may or may not be able to create retail-signed tads)

    On the other hand, DSiware exploit means full nand backup and restore (with dgTool), which can be decrypted with TwlTool, which allows you to manually install signed commercial DSiwares (check out the two topics in this very section about downgrading, especially after the end of this february)!
