    I am just curious... is it possible to dump the NAND of one DSi system and restore it to another? Or is it like the 3DS where it can only be restored to that same system?

    DSi's NAND is prolly per console key encrypted.
    So you can't restore it to another DSi unfortunately.

    You can dump it and you can restore it to a particular DSi, but it will not work cross-DSi as far as I know.

    If they had a GateWay DSi, I'd buy it hands down.

    Good luck. Hint - you have to extract dev.kp.

    Yeah, there was a Gateway DSi at one point - it was called the Cyclo iEvo and nobody bought it.

    Not unless you have the keys and know how to do it.

    To my knowledge, just the Common Key was leaked, and it won't be of much use to you in this case. Good luck though.

    The useful one is the Private key, as it can sign. Common key just decrypts stuff.

    It shouldn't be too difficult considering the fact that it was "functional" for a very limited time and on a handful of firmwares. I bet you'll find someone who'll gladly part with one for ya.


    For signing software, you want the Private key - it's used for signing games for the particular system in question and allows booting them. That's why you need dev.kp extracted from your NAND. ;)

    Well, if someone is willing to beat Zhuzhu's price of $36 and no shipping, I'd probably take that, but Zhuzhu's price is good as well. I've dealt with them before (The R4 giveaway some time back).

    Edit: Looks like Zhuzhu is sold out at the moment. I find paying around $60 for a flashcard that is no longer in production is kinda harsh. I'd probably get a better price going used.

    There you go then, glad that I could help!

    The flashcart isn't exactly popular, so I don't think people will be willing to part with it on the cheap - collector's value and whatnot. ;)

    You can get it from Shop01media for 30,95$ but that's without shipping.
