    I think It's possible. Maybe there could be something like the Twilight Hack! xD There already is! We could redirect it to the SD Slot and that's where our homebrew is! We already got into DSi Mode!

    Wait someone hacked the dsi or the ds emulated mode on the dsi, or are you explaining the steps to making this work?

    Its certainly possible but there is a huge flaw.

    The file is encrypted/decrypted using the DSi's Common Key which we do not have. Once we get a hold of that it may be possible but until then we're kind of stuck

    Just from the few bits and pieces that I've read, the DSi itself has already been hacked, but so far isnt possible with only a flash cart. It requires some serious know-how and completely ripping apart your DSi and not putting it back together [​IMG]

    wait, you can't download the DSi Internet Browser? [​IMG]
    so if I buy a DSi sometime this month, I also wont be able to download it?

    What? no. There is a save hack for some game or other, look on youtube, Gemesis already has a DSi-mode homebrew game running.


    -- Ripping apart a ds to run code, where do people hear this crap?!

    You need to access the DSi shop to download the browser. When you try to access the shop, it forces an update. If you bought the DSi after the 1.4 update was released, you need to update to download the browser. The OP didn't want to update and block his cart.

    I didnt want the update to block my flash cart, if you buy a dsi it will be 1.3, if you want the Opera web browser you need to update to 1.4, which blocks all flash carts at the moment, am I not right smarter people than me?

    @Vergilite
    I know what I'm talking about, you just cant comprehend my bad English [​IMG] .

    @Spinal
    Ok let me rephrase that, there is no dsi hack that us newbies can get with out making it our selves, after all we are newbies.
    And iwakura was being sarcastic.

    It'd be nice to rip the dsi games from the SD card or built in memory of DS to the computer and upload to the internet
    But I don't know any tools to do so.
    And I wouldn't do it myself XD
    but it'd be convenient, that way we wouldn't have to go through the whole dsi shop hacking :\

    wrong.
    most flash carts bypassed the protection a long time ago -.- including the AK2i.
    you sure aren't updated.

    Go a head and buy a dsi with any flash cart and try it then tell me what happend I've already tried this with my friends dsi so, the only cart that has made progress on the new update is the R4i, but we cant download it yet so...

    EDIT: I'm sorry, looks like on the AK2i forums theres a unofficial update.

    Regarding the original post: you're making some very wrong assumptions. Encryption doesn't work like that. Of course, you could use your own router to direct your DSi to try to download anything, but possibly hashes and keys are being used and verified. So no dice - I strongly assume the DSi checks the encryption signature of the files and won't install anything not signed by nintendo.

    And cracking that... good luck.

    Edit: also, I assume that's why they use plain http. No need for the SSL overhead.
