    No. Original R4 can't be updated and DSTwo could. But it's FPGA related stuff/firmware updater has not been documented like how it is with most flashcart makers. There are quite a few newer carts with updatable firmware which this could theoretically work on. But the flashcart makers chose to make their stuff proprietary, encrypted, and closed source, so you pretty much have to RE all those carts yourself if you wanted to try and modify the internal roms they use.

    The Acekard 2i is one of the few exceptions since it was reverse engineered successfully for the most part so we have flashers for it now. (mostly in the form of powerslaves or Decrypt9's Acekard menu).

    thanks for the explanation, well even though no auto reboot for me, new hax still excites me.

    Well, since we could autoboot stuff on DSi, Could we have a way to autoboot into RSA patches or this only aplies to flashcards?

    Credits to NoCash, Normmatt, Gericom, and StuckPixel for making this happen. I only found it. They looked deeper into the rabbit hole further then I could go myself. :D

    Lol the test stuff I did just made it easy to tell it worked as intended...Which it does. Don't worry. The DSi still boots normally after using this. :P

    I wouldn't be surprised if Gateway contacts you in the near future for a business opportunity :creep:

    Doesn't look like it; rather, this appears to be stemming off of the Acekard 2i autoboot work. If that's the case, it'll only work on system version 1.4.

    Robz and Shutterbug's exploit was said to be a DSiWare based exploit, so if it comes out we'd be able to downgrade and use this one.

    Thanks, I've realized that by reading trough the "buzzhax" thread (you replied 1s before I edited my thread :P)
    That's the best theory.

    Is it technically possible to transfer data between a flashcart SD and the 3DS SD? Using only the 3DS. I can think of a TWL app with DLDI driver support and TWL SD permissions.

    There was a thing called wood3ds, but it is buggy, unstable, works only with original r4 and I think the developers said it is more of a poc and they wouldn't support it.

    You can load run roms off SD card using nds-bootstrap.

    via it's frontends:
    • TWLoader, for 3DS users
    • SRLoader, for DSi users (can be used on 3DS too, if TWLoader kicks you back to the HOME Menu.)

    it's been explained a long time ago that this isn't possible because regular roms are hardcoded to read from the cartridge so they will never work if installed to the internal memory like DSiware.
    We need nds-bootstrap and TWLoader for that.

    Don't forget that your SRLoader works on 3DS too ;)

    I'm desperately hoping that someone will find a way to run the Nintendo DSi home menu on the 3ds.
