    Hello

    I need a homebrew (.NDS) that lets me play games from any region on my DSi.
    This exists?
    Help me please! I want to play Pokémon Black/White on my DSi, but BLACK/WHITE will be released in Japanese language =/
    I have R4i Ultra (Clone of R4)

    Thanks

    sorry, you have to get a japanese dsi to play it, or play it on a ds/lite without some features..

    or wait for the english version

    I don't think you need any homebrew to play other region games on a flashcard. If you mean you're going to get a retail copy of the Japanese version, I don't think a way to region-unlock on the DSi exists, at least not with a homebrew file.

    Flashcarts run in DS mode. The DS is NOT region locked, so I think you're good.

    There's no DSi homebrew that can make your DSi region-free.
    Sorry!

    Thanks [​IMG]
    But, it has some way to hack the ROM, making it run without errors on a DSi, with no region lock?
    I need to run the Black / White ROM (after leak) on my DSi D':

    it's the DS hardware, not the flashcart/firmware.

    Now that you have read that, you should know that you are using a flashcart to play the rom...flashcarts run in DS mode regardless if it is in a DSi or not...DS mode does not have a region lock, thus flashcarts have no region lock...thus, there will be no region lock with your horrid pirated game and nor will you have any of the DSi enhanced features.

    that's because those are DSI games. you can't play dsi games on a flashcart.
    dsi ENHANCED maybe, but not full dsi games.

    I know I'm late, but just to clarify:
    DSi-Enhanced games play on DSi flashcarts (although the DSi functions won't be available, as it'll think you're playing on a DS lite)
    DSi games don't work on flashcarts yet
    DSi and DSi enhanced games are both region-locked (but DSi-enhanced will play on any region on a flashcart or DS lite)
    Since Pokémon fits into the "enhanced" category, it will work on a flashcart (but there's a possibility that anti-piracy measures will prevent it from working for a few days)

    Wait; what?? Only the downloadable DSi games and programs are region-specific. Pokemon Black and White should be playable on any Nintendo DS system, as far as I know.

    This hasn't changed, has it?

    No.
    DSi-enhanced and DSi-exclusive games are region-locked, as stated by many other persons on this thread.
