    because after each attempt you need to check if it works, and iirc it uses a high-bit key, which means there could possibly be way too many combinations to try and brute force it.

    So we would need to connect the DS to a computer so that the some1 could get a PC to bruteforce the DS if we got it to be reconised.

    2 things
    1) Yes it is RSA but we have flashme to bypass it.

    2) There was an app that could be used to do homebrew signing (although it was naturally for a different key) and check commercial. It would be pointless here and I can not seem to find it either (I recall this site: http://gchack.free.fr/DS/utilsDS.htm when I found it but it does not appear to be there).
    Edit found some stuff
    http://wiki.tbble.net/pmwiki.php/NintendoD...tiBootData#toc4
    and you might want to look at the old wifime code:

    And finally if you want hack the fimware there is a tool to unpack it (it does not repack but frankly if you can hack the firmware you can muddle a repacker together) :

    If you need an injection app then go for the demo stations.
