    I was just wondering if a homebrew channel, like the one on the wii, would be possible to port to the ds...
    Then dsware games could be cracked (possibly).

    I doubt I'm the first person to suggest this and I appoligize if it's a repost.
    This is just something I was thinking about [​IMG]

    You are a genius. No one has ever thought of this before! [​IMG]

    No, it has nothing to do with adding stuff to the menu system, it's the fact that the games are encrypted.

    Lol I know. I'm told that quite frequently actually [​IMG]

    Is it possible that maybe there will be a way to gain access to other partitions on the dsi in the future?

    *sigh*

    yeah, it's a good idea... however it's simply not possible yet.
    well it is, but it seems that nobody i know can do it. (thats a lot of people)


    sooner or later this may be a reality but lets not dwell on it yet, at least not untill there is a dsi exclusive game that isn't part of dsi-shop. (whatever it's called. i never use it)

    best of luck to the first person to actually do this though, breaking into the dsi portion will be a valuable asset to coders.
    (coders, not hackers... completely different style of working. hacking is illegal coding is not [​IMG] )

    *the more you know*

    What you call "coding" is "hacking", and what you call "hacking" is "cracking".

    xD Hacking is ok, cracking is not. Cracking is hacking for malicious (or semi-malicious) intentions, hacking isn't xD.
    But onto a different idea, are there any coders that want to make a DS Homebrew Channel (screw DSi xD, alternate DS firmwares own)? Spinal_cord is pretty amazing at making alternate firmwares already though...so as a better question, does anyone want to be spinal_cord's alternate firmware making rival xD?

    Cracking is like making a game not have Anti Piracy, or making a program not ask for a serial key.

    I think you're on crack! [​IMG]

    And I think if there was a HB channel it would be more of a homebrew that let you download other homebrew to the DS. That probably already exists though.

    GameUP is also a homebrew channel/downloader.
    And im willing to bet the DSi won't be hacked until at least
    summer, so I wouldn't get your hopes up, but there is still a
    possibility.

    hopefully we can
    A) get HBC before the 3DS comes out or
    B) Hack/Crack the 3DS when it comes ot
