    So now I can't seem to gather any exploitable DSiware's anymore (like sudokuhax, but I never had any dsiware that was exploitable lol)

    Now I kinda need help cause now the DSi store is discontinued, unless there is some sort of private servers for the DSi store

    These are the games I really have in my dsi, if they are exploitable, please tell me :||||||
    • Flipnote Studio
    • Clubhouse Games Express
    • Brain Age Express (arts & letters, Sudoku, and Math)
    • Photo Clock

    I believe there's the possibility of some kind of exploit for Flipnote Studio, however there hasn't been more than speculation. Your best bet would be having a hardmod and using TWLtool to install one of the exploitable games on it.
    Maybe some kind of Soundhax type of exploit will come along in the future. (Just hoping, though.)

    An alternate DSi Shop server would be great, we could install exploitable games or only games (or homebrew ;)) that we want.

    It's pretty much impossible. Everything is signed and the shop most likely used certificates to verify that's the legit shop.

    It'd be great but it's not going to happen.

    There's like no point in thinking positive over something literally not going to happen lol. At most there can be a FreeShop type thing for CFW users.

    In addition to the unproven Flipnote exploit already mentioned by Magical Sheep, if you have the data management option in your system settings, you have the ability to hardmod your system and actually decrypt the nand

    You can't (readily) create another server for the official Shop app, but you can create a replacement app too
    A (VC/Wiiware, of course) Wii Freeshop has been possible for the past 9 years but nobody who had the programming skills cared enough

    A FreeShop can be good too :)

    All I'm thinking is that with the same with Flipnote Hatena, now has a private server named sudomemo, why not someone make a private server of DSi Shop channel, and then (maybe) we change the dns settings or proxy settings and hope that works? I mean it could happen in the near future i think...

    It should be easy once you have CFW.

    Yes, but to quote the other guy "we could install exploitable games" this implies wanting it without CFW which is just not happening.

    If you quote everything he said then my response makes more sense.

    "An alternate DSi Shop server would be great, we could install exploitable games or only games (or homebrew ;)) that we want."

    Being able to install sudokuhax once you've got CFW might be pointless, but you can still do it.

    Obviously you'll need to wait for an exploit that doesn't require a game to be installed from the shop, if it's coming then I'd have thought it won't come out before rocketlaunch.

    I'm just hoping that the new exploit will be for DSi Browser or both, since I have only the Browser. And I'm also already on 1.4 so I can use the exploit to access homebrew and potentially install RocketLauncher.

    No browsers "support" webkit, it's a rendering engine browsers are built on

    The DSi browser is a variant of the (real, Presto) Opera, not anything Webkit

    Has anyone actually looked into the "System Update" protocol? Perhaps security for a System Update through System Settings is a bit more lax and it'd be possible to emulate an update server good enough so you can update your 1.x (x < 4) to 1.4 firmware.
