Alright, so, let's just get straight to the point here. If any of you reading this have bought ANY DsiWare whatsoever-other than the 2 Brain Age games that come with XL, please go to you settings menu, data management and copy all of your DsiWare games into your SD card. Then insert the SD Card into your computer and do the following; My Computer>Right-Click the SD Card>Click Properties>Tools>Back-up Now. Then back-up your entire SD card and save it to your desktop.

Make sure to copy all data onto your computer and formatting your card to make sure nothing personal-like pictures gets on. Then compress the back-up and upload it onto media fire and either comment the link below or mail it to me at [email protected] I am doing this so that I can figure out a way to play DsiWare other people bought on different Dsi's. Make sure you use the back-up system and not just copy the 'private' folder and mail it.

I believe the DSI also flashes the content to make sure it is genuine once you try to restore it. I believe that using the back-up system may also capture the flashed content. Imagine, if we could just share each others games-we would no longer have to pay so much to do this. If you have any questions, feel free to mail me.

THE WHOLE POINT OF THIS IS TO NOT BUY A FLASHCARD! :/ Also, DsiWare are too cool for flahcards. I also wanna hack the OS and creat a Cydia like program-but Idk how to do anything like that. It'd be cool if you could use the SD card to boost RAM.

LOL, This isn't going to work. Everytime you download DSiware, it compiles itself when you download it with a key specific to each DSi. When you run a DSiWare file compiled in another DSi, the key is different and it will not be read. The only way to play it is to find the common key used by Nintendo to test systems and compile them using that. By compiling, I mean packing into the DSiWare container format.
A different way to explain that is that every time you download DSiWare, your DSi Encrypts it with a key specific to it's system. When run on another DSi, it cannon't decrypt it. As for builing a cydia like program, no one knows how to run, let alone code custom DSi Channels

Yeah I almost bought Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 the other day to dump it for the scene, but then I decided against it thinking someone would get to it today or yesterday. Seems I was wrong

WHOA how did this get here?!...

wouldn't that mean then that the decryption algorythm is buried in the dsi firmware itself?
I wonder if updates to the firmware then change said key or if it hardcoded...say like the dsi's ip address.
May need to see If I can find a dumped firmware. It is just an os after all...

Did you really think I didn't know that? What I'm trying to is make the Dsi think it's either Brain Age or the Opera Browser. Now why don't ya all stop arguing with me and acctually contribute something? :/ (Sorry if I was rude)

It largely has to do with your post count, many people subconsciously or not think that a person knows nothing about a certain subject if their post count is low (i.e. noob).

I've posted about several subjects on forums where my opinion wasn't even acknowledged, but when someone with a higher post count said the exact same thing, everyone completely agreed with him.

So don't worry about it too much, expect an e-mail from me with my DSi-Ware soon.

And if you DO get the key... it only works on ONE system.

twiizers showed a save exploit that ran a TINY bit of code, possibly the same hack that Wintermute put out: http://www.ds-scene.net/?s=viewtopic&nid=8137
The problem with that was it was really TOO small to be of any real use, but opened up the possibilities for a better exploit to be found... which it did: http://davejmurphy.com/dsi-mode-homebrew-anyone/
Now code can be injected via WiFi, but is still pretty limited.

More to do with the noob question that was asked, has been answered many times and is relatively easily searchable.

Thanks man!

I guess I'll have to post more then, eh? And the dude above me-whatever. Gravity was discovered by an apple crashing on a dude's head, so who says a hack can't be discovered by a system crash?

Of course hacks can be discovered from system crashes, that's actually one main path.

However getting DSiWare to function on another DSi is sort of pointless, as you'd need both a way to decrypt the contents, and a modified firmware for the other DSi to run unsigned shit.

Well, I still wanna do it anyways. It'd be cool to get free DsiWare. I bought a DSI XL this September.
I doubt I could get a 3DS that soon. And the dude above me-lol.
