The reason this device is interesting to me is that the DSi seems to be to the DS what the Wii was to the GameCube. The DSi has two modes — a “native mode” and a “compatibility mode”. In the compatibility mode, the clock is slown down to half the speed and access to the new peripherals is disabled — sound familiar? In the native mode, you get a faster clock and more RAM — used to perform the real-time face recognition and image processing shown above — as well as an SD slot and two cameras (front and back-facing). The device boots up into a “System Menu” that is fairly reminiscent of the Wii.

Oh, did I mention that it has a Shop Channel where you can download apps, like Opera? And you can download firmware updates online? Hey, guess what — we can download firmware updates online!

The ticket and contents are downloadable in the same way. Unfortunately, they aren’t reusing the same common key, so we can’t actually disassemble anything (yet). Although they’re probably reusing much of the ES code from IOS, they probably fixed the blatant flaws that allowed us to rip the key and fakesign.

Now all we need is someone to step up to the plate and grab the new key! Then you can come and start filling in our new wiki.

This is a few days old now isn't it?

Lovely picture in the wiki though

Well great, but hack what exactly?
What objectives really? If it's homebrew, are we gonna have yet another homebrew channel, or simply hacked firmware that allows flashcarts to run?

...It'd be interesting to see DS roms run in native mode instead of compatibility mode too.

DS Roms can't run in native mode, only compatibility mode. This was intentionally done to prevent problems and to make sure DS games run as they should. The games weren't programmed with the DSi hardware in mind so they would either not work or be extremely buggy. In native mode, the apps run under the DSi firmware as if it was an OS while in NDS Compatibility, the firmware acts as a loader, once a game is loaded, the firmware has no more purpose.

so, we can run run DSiware from flashcarts. and given that in normal mode the processor runs at twice the clock speed, people may get the gba emulator they keep asking for

I haven't seen a post about the exact hardware of the DSi. He said the processor is slowed to half speed so the new processor is 133mhz?
