    For anyone who has sudoxuhax on their DSi and is already tired of keep renaming all there homebrew to 'boot.nds' to test, here is 'DSi homebrew Channel'. It sure makes loading homebrew from the SD slot a lot less of a painful experience.

    Download - Homepage, filetrip mirror

    Instructions

    Copy boot.nds to the root of your SD card
    Run sudokuhax
    Select homebrew with d-pad then press A.
    Up/Down - cursor up/down
    Left/right - cursor up/down x 10
    L/R - jump to end/start of folders or files


    Features

    Loads homebrew from SD card
    16 level battery monitor
    Current date + time display
    Username display


    Limitations

    Loads ONLY homebrew, you should expect nothing more.
    Currently can only use up to 2gb SD cards, that is a limitation of the current libnds.
    Currently no settings, even if there were some, they can't be saved anyway (SD access is currently only read only).


    I don't want to take too much credit for this, it is based on hbmenu, all I really did was make it look nice.

    *Update
    HBChannel now loads photos taken with the DSi (when transferred to the SD card).

    Works fine on regular DS too!
    (as long as card isn't sdhc)

    Yay, HBmenu isn't ugly anymore! [​IMG]

    The only way this could become better if it had support for dsiware.That would be the bomb!

    this is fantastic [​IMG] I have a problem though..

    I grabbed a copy of the Sodoku game when the hack was discovered but was not able to figure out how to inject the save file under Mac OSX.

    Can anyone help me with that?

    First up, great job Spinal!

    Next up, what's the compatability like? I tried GenriDex, PokePong, and Multiview, and only Multiview worked.

    And what about emulators/SSB Clash?

    Got the Sudoku games ages ago but never ran sudokuhax, however when im trying to download the client from bootmii there is a server error. Is this just me or are there others with the problem?

    As far as I know, the compatibility should be the same (or similar) to the sudokukax itself, there is no compatibility to load older homebrew, so only new DSi mode homebrew will work properly. There is no possible way to make older emulators run in DSi mode or use the SD card.

    DSx86 works, I think that is the only emulator currently working.
    there is a thread somewhere with a list of older homebrew that works with sudokuhax, but none of the older stuff has sound or touch (i think).

    Wow. This looks pretty awesome.

    I didn't download the Sudoku DSiWare in time, though. I guess I won't be able to run this homebrew.

    This. I'm a bit sad that I managed to get the DSi XL just after the exploit was released. Could have used it just for the fun of it...

    Nice brew though. Looking good spinal!

    Wow spinal_cord, you're awesome at everything you do. I love your Coverflow, too! Sadly I don't have Sudokuhax but this program also looks great.
