    so uhm i think i kinda messed up but i also still dunno....
    i recently installed unlaunch on my dsi but then i got a 2ds formatted the sd card i used to hack my dsi with and used it to hack my 2ds and now i wanna install hiya cfw and i wanna know if i can still install hiya with unlaunch installed and a blank sd card (formatted fat32 of course) (also i wont use my 3ds cfw sd card but a new one so i can keep my 3ds roms separately from my dsi cfw stuff) also ask something if u need more information to solve this problem

    Lately I've been having some problems with older homebrew files, and a lot of them mention that they should be DLDI patched for the flashcart that you are using. Does homebrew need to be DLDI patched for use on an SD card, and if so, where are the patches? I am using an SD card with TWilight Menu++.

    TWLM++/nds-bootstrap automatically DLDI-patches, iirc. You can try booting without direct boot on, but that doesn't guarantee they'll work.

    Is it possible to restore the DSi software to the way it was before installing Unlaunch and the CFW?

    Is there an Instruction on how to do that or an video?

    In general I advise against uninstalling custom firmware on any device because it can have bad effects – including full bricking if important titles have been modified – and has no benefits I can think of. But this is my very personal opinion.

    Newer versions of the unlaunch installer contain an uninstall function. If you did not modify anything on the NAND other than installing unlaunch, the uninstaller should not cause any harm – despite the message:
    Warning: Uninstalling unlaunch
    will render your console mostly
    useless.

    Not sure what the developer wants to say with that (pointing to possible bricks in case of modified “Launcher” or just “A DSi without unlaunch is useless.”) Most interpret is with the second answer ("It is just a joke!"). I've read about multiple cases now where nothing bad happened after uninstalling unlaunch.

    You can start the installer – if it is still on your SD (else re-download) – right from the unlaunch filemenu [Hold (A)+(B) while turning on the DSi]. The installer should have a name like "Unlaunch DSi Installer" However, do not hold me responsible. Since I have no way to recover from bricks on a DSi my testing is very limited compared to the 2|3DS systems. As for the SD: You can just format it (after copying personal files like saves or photos).

    I have a question

    I've been months with this to hack the console (Nintendo dsi) I did everything, the camera hax, nand etc etc

    So far I have everything but I only have in unlaunch, I practically only use it to play nes games and dsiware games, and now what do I do? I mean to have the twiligth without I get error .dat? or hiya cwf without the error of the folder, when wanting to play snes games asks me for DLDI and Fat system (All erroneous) I leave the console as I leave it or do I have to start all over again?

    Please run the games in DS mode.

    If only Unlaunch is installed, follow this guide.

    Replied here because the DSi NOOB PARADISE is a more suitable place than the Memory Pit thread.

    The only thing you need is the possibility to put files on the SD.
    Please use https://dsi.cfw.guide/ for step-by-step instructions (instead of video guides).

    If you have any specific questions or encounter any problems… just ask.

    Also, how to put YSmenu on an R4 Gold Pro?

    Instructions are in the first post.
    Try installing TWiLight Menu++ on the R4, instead of YSMenu.
