    I was just reading through other threads on the progress of DSi hacking and something occurred to me. I don't have a DSi so I can't do any of the testing myself. :/ I am thinking that it might be possible to add code to boot a flash cart by injecting code into the decrypted download play ROM and then re-encrypting it and sending it from a DS/Lite. Has anyone attempted this?

    I was thinking to use the hack we know about (or some do [​IMG] ) and use it to boot the slot-1. Just my idea.

    It never hurts to have more than one type of exploit. [​IMG] I was just sharing an idea for those who have the means to attempt hacking the DSi. It wouldn't be good for the longterm because you would always need a DS/Lite to boot it up but it might be useful for some type of firmware meddling and figuring out how to get games to boot, etc.

    Couldnt you have some sort of download play where you make the DSI (download) Run a program?)

    That's basically what I meant. Instead of the demo or multiplayer sharing it would execute code to bypass the check and boot the flash cart up.

    We can't re-encrypt them, we don't know Nintendo's private key.

    Hmmm yeah that would prove a problem. :/ (I don't know much about encryption/decryption... Does it show? [​IMG] )

    what about breaking the autoboot crasher by flooding it with alot of data from the cart and the sd slot?

    That would require a corrupted FAT table on the SD card or something. As for the flash cart it would probably need its code overwritten and rendered useless besides being able to boot the DS into a different mode. [​IMG]
