Sweet! can't wait to see what comes of this.
Nice. Week of amazingness? PS3 hacked. Now DSi mode. Victories on two fronts.
inb4 someone mentions the new and certainly unhackable 3DS
Does that also mean that theres gonna be a video recorder app ?
Here's the part most people will probably be interested in, homebrew running in DSi mode.
While playing around with the save game exploits for Cooking Coach and Classic Word Games I created last year I discovered two things about the flashchip on the wifi module where the firmware would be stored on a normal DS. (1) It contains only the setup data for wifi, the user settings and the wifi connection settings and, (2) Part of it is writable, from DS mode. This was what finally gave me the motivation to revisit an old project to upload homebrew to the DS over wifi.
installDSiLink.nds will, when run from a DSi compatible card in DS mode, write the dslink client to the wifi flash chip and this can then be bootstrapped from the save game exploits mentioned above. You'll need to write the appropriate .SAV file from this archive to your game of choice from either a DS with eepinator or use one of the save game transfer devices around. Cooking Coach is more convenient since the exploit kicks in just after the splash screen, with Classic Word Games you need to go through a couple of menu options.
Unfortunately testing revealed that later model DSi and XL consoles have had their security beefed up a little. You'll know if you have one of these consoles if either the installer fails to write the loader or the loader fails to connect when bootstrapped. Sorry if you have one of these consoles, you'll have to wait a little bit longer to play with DSi mode.
libnds still needs some more updating to deal with DSi mode features, currently audio and touchscreen don't work and the swi decompression functions seem to have changed. Hopefully now there's a reasonably straightforward way to run code we can get a few more people looking at what we need to change and how best to approach it.
i dont get it so there is no wait erghh im so confused so is this really much of an advancement from what weve seen on other videos
So what does this do? I read the article but didn't understand most of it?
Very good news.
*Orders Classic Word games*.
I already have a "day one" DSi (warranty has expired), and a neoflash SMS (to write the save file).
while this mean that homebrew channel can begin ?
I've installed the dsilink succesfully, I'll buy my cooking coach later...
fuck yes, i got my dsi on launch day, I think mine should be fine. However what does this all mean? I don't get it. I've just woken up and everything's a blur to me.
That you would be able to.. maybe run a flashcard IN DSiMode = access to all the extra hardware it offers.
will the uk version of my cooking coach work in an australian dsi?
Mine is a launch day DSi, it was fine.
XD I know it could be that, sounds too good to be true after waiting for a long time. I'm not doubting it by any means, it's just overwhelming, first the ps3 and now the dsi.
but, what's the real difference between this and the previous exploit?
ismaelwii: not limited to 8kb?
Thanks, its amazing.
Wait, so we got access to the full 16MB now?
