    Is there any progress for running Homebrew or other files on the DSi through the SD card slot?
    I poked around, I didn't find anything on google at least.

    Not yet, no exploit has been found or released.
    Best bet is to use a flash cart (AceKard 2i)

    Nothing has been found yet. Give it atleast 2 to 4 weeks. If nothing is out by then then it should happen soon after. Some news should be out by then.
    Although its annoying, not having a flashcart for the DSi is best right now. An update and kill the flash cards, or someone could find an exploit to let games boot right off the SD card (personally hoping for some form of app that lets the programs/games in your SD card appear in the 'channels' on the DSi main menu).
    Wait it out.

    Actually it would be better to get a flashcart with an updateable kernel so that way if it's blocked, the flashcart creators will just release a firmware update and it will be all good.

    Also even if your flashcart doesn't have an updateable kernel you can always wait and not update until an exploit is found.

    And finally, I highly doubt an exploit will come as soon as 2-4 weeks.

    I don't know, if any exploit is found as early as a month it would probably be a crack to access the DSi's cameras and do DSi Homebrew...OR DSiWare pirating...and that's probably at the most...but...you never know.

    Also that's cool how you're posting from the DSi. Is the browser as slow as everyone says?

    The browser is kinna slow, but decent.
    Can do more than the normal PSP Browser, but the PSP Browser is still kinna faster.

    Also like you said buy a flash cart and don't upgrade until its safe.
    Plus wouldn't it be faster to hack the DSi using a flash cart?
    Gives you access to a lot of stuff already. Just wondering.

    the browser isnt that slow
    its faster than the psp
    the psp is just faster on small on easy sites but the dsi is faster on bigger sites

    Alot of people are thinking of hacking the DSi via Flashcart or SD Slot but the thing is the Flashcarts emulate NDS games...I doubt they'd be able to do much to the actual DSi...that's why alot more people think that the first hack via the SD Slot or DSiWare. I think the only way you could hack the DSi via a Flashcart is with a save exploit...but we don't even know if that will work.

    I think they should at least let the DSi be compatible with the Action Replay so it'll work (The AR didn't do anything to help with pirating. It only cheats on store-bought games, right? So why should the AR suffer?)

    The Action Replay is not a licensed Nintendo product, and Nintendo does not want it running on their machines.

    You can run AR codes off any flashcard now a days anyway.

    Does the actual Nintendo software handle SDHC, or just SD?

    Because the Wii only handles SD, right, when homebrew can have SDHC...
