    Wouldn't it be possible to create a firmware for the DSi that can help us hack/create DSi specific homebrews. I mean it was probably a fake but a while ago I saw someone who flash the old firmware on a DSi....so could it be possible.

    No one, as far as I've heard, has ever flashed the firmware. Maybe you are thinking of that hack with the word game DSi thingy.

    Possible...I just wish the DSi would be hacked. I wish there was a legitimate way I could help the community instead of using that crazy key finder.


    EDIT-Yeah thats the video

    I know you've already edited, but if you want to get the hang of YouTube tags, just quote my post if you want.

    lol the redundancy in the sentence threw me off for a second. Ontopic, it might be possible to have the DSi firmware as a homebrew file...although it can't really do anything (it would be more for looks?) and if all you care for is the look of the DSi firmware...you could try Spinal_cord's DSi4DS homebrew xD.

    The video is fake. It's a flashcard running the original ds phat firmware, in NDS mode.
    Also, even dumping/decrypting the current DSi firmware would be a hard task, let alone reflashing it etc.

    now , even if it was fake (which it is), who the HELL would want DS Phat firmware, which is crap and glitchy instead of the sleek DSi Firmware

    Yeah, I do that sometimes. [​IMG] I usually fix it.

    And DSi4DS looks alright but could do with some adjustments. [​IMG]
